Lip of the Day- Clinique Almost Lipstick in Black Honey

With Autumn in the air, I’ve been rediscovering lip products that I put away during spring and summer. Today’s lip is an oldie but a goodie, Clinique Almost Lipstick in Black Honey.


This is one of those cult shades that works across skin tones due to how sheer it is. It works with your own lip colour to build something that’s unique to you. Like a lot of women, my lips are not all one shade so I like to layer most lip products over a lip liner to even them out but this lipstick looks lovely and effortless on its own as well.


I wanted something that would compliment the lipstick so I paired it with Rimmel Exaggerate Automatic Lip Liner in Obsession. I really like the texture of this lip liner as it’s really comfortable on the lips. The shade is a very pretty muted red berry shade that look nice on its own or under most red lipsticks.


I really like the end result and how rich the shade looks. You can easily change the look of the lipstick by pairing it with different shades of lip liner. I recommend checking it out if you haven’t yet.

    This looks lovely, Ahalya. I have the same but found it dried my lips immensely so I haven’t worn it since the first time I tried it.
    I now feel inspired to give it another go, perhaps as you suggest, layered!

      Thank you! I haven’t found it to be particularly drying but it isn’t very moisturising. I always recommend layering most lip products 🙂
