I bought the Black Cherry gift set and included was a full sized black cherry almost lipstick. The tube is super slim and looks very sleek. This colour is considered a cult favourite so I just had to try it for myself. On the tube, the colour looks very dark and even vampish. A swatch on my hand told me otherwise, it is a sheer and moisturising balm like lipstick. It feels very soft and is quite sheer. The added SPF is a great addition. I think that this would be perfect for everyday wear as it feels hydrating, soft and is glossy. It is a perfect combination of a lipstick, lip balm and lip gloss. This is my second Clinique makeup product and again I am in love!

Flirty Honey looks like a bright pink in the tube with micro shimmer that is difficult to see with the naked eye. On the lips it is a 'my lips but better' pink that offers a pretty, feminine shine without being over the top.
The packaging of these lip products are so damn cool, a brushed metal base with a smooth and shiny metal top makes them really chic and give them a classy look and feel, they are thin and long which sets them apart from typical lip products.
The formula is really nice, glides on, provides shine and a soft amount of colour and has hydrating properties, I would classify them as a lipstick/balm/gloss hybrid, unfortunately they aren't super long lasting so reapplication will be necessary but that doesn't bother me in the slightest because pulling these babies out in public makes me feel fancy! Friends and strangers often ask me "what is that!?!"
At $36 a piece these can be considered pricey but I love the look and the formula so I definitely consider them well worth it.

Perfect for sheer, easy lip colour
I have these in a few different colours. My favourite is Lovely Honey. Lovely Honey provides just enough colour to my lips to be noticeable, but it is still a very natural finish as it is close to my own lip colour.
These lipsticks are moisturising to wear. They are so easy to apply. As they are 'almost lipstick' I can apply on the go, without worrying that I will get the product everywhere.

Love love the colours in this range. I find them to be very pretty and glide really easy on the lips leaving them moisturized for a long time!

The shade I have is Flirty Honey and I find it perfect for my skin tone. It's natural looking and glossy without too much shine.
I love the slimline design, rather than a chubby lipstick - more compact for my handbag.
It goes on easily, isn't sticky or tacky and the colour lasts.
I suffer from dry lips but I find this to be very moisturising.

The perfect in-between!
I have the Almost Lipstick in Flirty Honey and I love it!
I really love using this because I hate lipglosses (too sticky and goopy) and I'm always afraid I'll look like a kid who got into her mother's make-up with a full blown lipstick. This is a great in-between product. It's glossy like a balm with enough colour to make you look "made up".
It is also quite long wearing, but does need to be re-applied a few times during the day. Overall, a great product to keep in your handbag.

i got a free sample of this at Clinique gift time. I like that this seems to finish off my look nicely, but the colour (shy honey) could be a little brighter. I know it's only 'almost lipstick' but still, it was so subtle that i cannot imagine anyone paying $36 for what is essentially a lip balm. That said, very moisturising and feels nice on, like all clinique lipsticks.

Black Honey is amazing
I've only ever tried this in one shade - the cult favourite Black Honey. Love this product.
It looks so dark in the tube - but goes on super sheer, feels wonderful on the lips & gives a sheer wash of a colour that I think suits anyone. With an SPF thrown in, it's the ultimate lip product for anyone looking for a lippie/gloss hybrid.

The Almost Lipstick, which I have in Flirty Honey, is a pretty lipstick and lip balm combination. It applies well on your lips and offers a sheer tinge while providing UV protection with a SPF of 15. However, I have found this to not be as moisturizing as Clinique's chubby stick as it has left my lips somewhat dry. Thus, I have found that I have needed to wear additional lip balm under this lipstick to maintian moisture and the hydration of my lips. Despite this, I think the Almost Lipstick is an amazing product to use.

Strong but Sublte Lip Colour
Best of both worlds in the lipstick stakes a beautiiful lip balm with a colouring of a lipstick.
Its up there with the Chubby stick but the finishing touch has a deeper and richer colouring of the lips without being over the top.
Its last like most lip products - would like more staying power so thats the only downfall really and the fact I could only get the black honey,
Well worth a try for your next lip product.
