#TBT: Clinique Black Honey Almost Lipstick


Were or are you a Clinique Black Honey Almost Lipstick girl? Sadly seems like just yesterday when all the popular girls in my high school were wearing it. I was more into CoverGirl Lipslicks and pressed powder back then. And I never appreciated the nuances of Black Honey—it was so sheer and hardly showed up on my lips. That didn’t stop me from ordering a tube when I saw this infographic, just to see if my tastes had change. I do like this sheer berry hue more now. It’s subtle and shiny and something different from my go-to pink and red tinted balms. But it didn’t change my life. Curious if, 20 years after its debut, there are still some die-hard Black Honey fans out there? I kind of want you to post pics to instagram so I can understand what all of the fuss is about! And who is buying a tube every two minutes . . .

P.S. Did you know that there is an entire Black Honey collection? I think I could get behind the nail polish
