I am a sucker for great packaging. And while I love Clinique, I never expected to get an uber-high end, sleek tube of lipstick from them. But when they revived the classic color, Black Honey, they did it right.
The tone is right on trend for fall – a wine-colored slash berry wash, that doesn’t required the legwork of a liner. But that is just the lip of the iceberg. This isn’t the most moisturizing hybrid gloss/lipstick, but it definitely stays on. It doesn’t even come off on glasses during dinner or drinking. The smaller applicator makes blind application much easier. Not to mention, the slender silver tube looks sleek and can squeeze into an clutch.
So, let’s relive our glory days – you know, when mom got your first lipstick at the Clinque counters? And of course it was Black Honey.
