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.

Fuss free lip colour

Amongst the plethora of lipcolour options out there, I'm not sure if Cliniques almost lipstick stands out as a show stopper but It is very nice. It isn't sticky and the colour is lovely. The formula is sheer and moisturising but has far more staying power than a gloss. The colour I have is Black Honey which I was given for Christmas. It's a deep wine colour in the tube but is sheer on the lips and adds depth without being too bold or OTT for a daytime look. I'm getting quite a bit of wear out of it for summer, but I think it's going to be a lovely winter colour too.
The packaging is very luxe - a slimline solid metal tube which is quite long and easy to slip into a small clutch or purse without the bulk of a traditional lipstick bullet. There is a little bit of a petroleum jelly type smell from this product which I'm not a huge fan of but thankfully it doesn't stick around once applied. The cost is... well it's not cheap, but it's more affordable than some department store brands. I would rather buy a tube of this and know I'm going to love it than cheap knock offs and be disappointed.

Black Honey

I have only ever tried this lipstick in the shade Black Honey, which just happens to be one of my most loved lip colours! Black Honey looks almost black in the tube which is frightening at first. However, once you apply it to your lips, you realise the colour is very sheer and gives a lovely plum boost to your natural lip colour. This lipstick has a balmy texture which means it applies like a breeze, looks so natural on the lips, and is super duper comfortable to wear. It is also not sticky or waxy on the lips, and it feels as though you're wearing nothing at all It has moderate staying power, and fades naturally throughout the day if you don't happen to touch up. Overall this is just a wonderful everyday lip colour that just about any woman could pull off, there is good reason why this has been a cult favourite for many years!
