cannot see the hype around this

I got the shade black honey in a GWP and I was so excited to use this because of all the reviews I had read. I was really disappointed when I tried it on.

I like the thin packaging but that's all I like about this product. The formula was thick and greasy and gave little to almost no colour payoff for me. It smells chemically and it did not feel comfortable at all on my lips. I could smell it the whole time and it looked patchy (I scrubbed my lips before and still patchy).

I will not be purchasing this.

Nice product

Received this in a gift with purchase, I was given the shade shy honey, after seeing the other reviews I kind of wish I had got black honey.
The shade I received only barely showed up on my lips so this was more of a lip balm for me and it did a decent job of keeping my lips fairly moisturised with the tiniest amount of colour so it was great to throw in my bag for an easy touch up during the day.

Favourite MLBB

Normally I'm a chubby sticks fan but receiving this in a gift with purchase has really changed my perspective. Black Honey Almost Lipstick is amazing! The tube is quite slim and I actually prefer this as it doesn't get too much product on my lips. "Almost lipstick" is a perfect name for it - it's a very moisturising tinted balm that acts almost like a lipstick. It is super moisturising and doesn't emphasise dry skin.

In the bullet the lipstick looks quite dark however the actual product is a lot sheerer. One swipe gives a lovely tinted natural MLBB look that I believe would suit many skintones. A few more swipes would give a shiny sheer red that would be great for semi-formal events. I love the versatility of this product and it allows me to easily transition my day lips into night lips with just one product. The colour won't look too bold or solid but it does the trick in passing off as both a day and night look.

Would absolutely recommend as a must have!

Black Honey - no wonder it's a cult favourite!

Clinique Black Honey Almost Lipstick is perfect for me - I don't like wearing lipsticks - I prefer a tint or stain. This is a sheer wash of a deep colour that makes my teeth look whiter and my eyes look bluer - its the perfect shade and is said to suit a wide range of skin tones. It's my favourite!

Good for the go

Unlike its strong color, when applied on the lips it gives a very sheer tint. it is more like a tinted balm.
Just gives that slight color to your lips and is great when you want to look natural. The only cons i can think of is that it does not last too long

Lovely lip colour

I received Almost Lipstick in 'Black Honey' as a gift with purchase recently. This is one of Clinique's only lip products that I haven't tried over the years, but I dare say that I'll be going back to it from now on. It's very much like a lip balm, but has really strong buildable colour that feels great on and conditions the lips beautifully. The staying power is also rather good. I also love the slim line packaging which makes is easy to apply and store, as well as the fact that it's completely fragrance/taste free. I look forward to checking out some of the other colours in the range!

My lips but better

I received this product in the clinique bonus time pack and I didn't expect to like it because black honey looked so dark and I'm quite fair. But I absolutely love it. It's a beautiful light berry colour and a perfect my lips but better shade. It's moisturising, easy to apply and feels great on the lips. It lasts a decent time as well. My favourite lip product at the moment.

I love this lip balm in a gorgeous wind up stick. It is not sticky at all. It gives just a hint of colour, so can be worn on its own, or even over your lipstick to add more shine, It feels very nice on the lips and the colours are lovely.

Black Honey - gorgeous!

I purchased Clinique Almost Lipstick in the cult shade 'Black Honey'. I was curious and wanted to see for myself if this lipstick lived up to the hype. I must say that I'm not disappointed! The colour looks a bit dark and scary in the tube, but applied on my lips it turns out like a very sheer pretty plum jam colour. The lipstick feels great on my lips. It's really hydrating. The longevity of the colour isn't bad considering it's a sheer lip balm kind of product, and I do get a couple of hours of wear out of it before I need to reapply. I love the packaging, it looks very classy. I wear this lipstick quite a lot, both day time and night time. I think this colour would probably suit most people. At $36 it is a little expensive, but it's a very high quality product from one of my favourite brands. I was keen to try other shades of Almost Lipstick, but they seem to have disappeared.
