I can’t think of many people that don’t love Clinique Black Honey but I’m sure there are one or two out there. In that case, might I suggest Clinique Pink Honey Almost Lipstick? This sheerer less rebellious sister of Black Honey is a pretty shade of sheer nude pink that’s sure to be a hit with those who like a nude lip look.

Here’s a look!

Ahh Clinique Almost Lipstick why are you not available in a wider ranger of shades? You’re so easy to apply, you keep my lips so nicely hydrated, and you look so natural and pretty on! Why oh why are you limited to two shades?

That’s ok, the shades you are available in I love! Black Honey fans will love the fact they can get their hands on a newer, lighter shade in Almost Lipstick. Pink Honey! And those who aren’t a fan of Black Honey, well, that’s a no brainer as you’re sure to love this new lighter shade! This launched a few months ago and it’s been hanging out in my stash a while.

Almost Lipstick is a soft, buttery texture that applies easily on lips and gives very light hydration with a slight sheen finish and a hint of color. Pink Honey is fairly transparent and definitely the lighter of the two shades offered. This is a soft, nude pink that enhances your own natural lip color but doesn’t overpower it. It’s great if you’re anything like me and hate having to reapply your lipstick throughout the day. This gives my lips a soft sheen, a hint of color, plus a little moisture to go along with it!

And if you’re doing a heavier eye look it makes for a perfect nude lip look that won’t take away or overpower that heavier look!

Clinique Pink Honey Almost Lipstick is available now at Sephora and Sephora.com.

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    Seriously! Why are these only available in two shades? This is an awesome formula. I believe, in the Spring of 2012 they released maybe 6 – 8 shades (Shy Honey, Flirty Honey, Chic Honey, etc.) of these and I LOVED every single shade selection. I didn’t realize these were LE so I didn’t get any back-ups…still sad about that incident!

    I am a long time Black Honey wearer and I have this newer shade and am really pleased with it. It is a perfect easy to wear ‘your lips but better’ shade. Clinique used to have various shades in this formulation and I miss that.

  • Tracy

    Black Honey was my first lipstick! I’m 49, and I remember when Black Honey first came out so, I NEED THIS. It looks fantastic on you Muse!

  • Jules

    I keep hoping they bring back the blackberry shade they had in this formula back in the 90s…anyone else remember it? It left a GORGEOUS berry stain behind that I have never been able to duplicate!!

    Ok, so I’m 64 and remember the first Clinique little seafoam colored pots of Black Honey and this wonderful indescribable pink tint called Meadowflower, wore it for years, and then they
    stopped the pots, why do they have to fix something that ain’t broke, every season or so?
    I know the answer, just sayin
