Clinique Honey, Honey Ornament Set

Clinique Honey, Honey Ornament Set

Honey, Honey

Clinique Honey, Honey Ornament Set ($15.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a simple set that includes two, miniature-sized Almonst Lipsticks in Pink Honey and Black Honey. The Almost Lipstick is described as having “transparent pigment [that] merges with the unique, natural tone of your lips” with a “sheer, glossy, emollient-rich, and very lightweight” formula. The description is fairly apt–enough pigmentation that they do alter the natural lip color but are still sheer that the natural lip color comes through. What I liked about the formula was that they still applied evenly and didn’t sink into my lip lines much while having decent wear (three hours) that was hydrating.

Value

A full-sized Almost Lipstick retails for $17.50 and contains 0.07 oz. or costs $250.00/oz. The set contains $20.00 worth of product.

Pink Honey

Pink Honey is a soft, medium pink with warm undertones and a natural sheen. It lightened my natural lip color and gave it a lighter, pinker look while still allowing my natural lip color to come through, which was as described. The texture was lightweight, emollient but not overly slippery, and comfortable to wear. There was just a smidgen of color in my deeper lip lines that wasn’t noticeable from a normal viewing distance. The lipstick stayed on well for three hours and was moisturizing.

Black Honey

Black Honey is a muted, medium plum with subtle, warm undertones and a soft sheen. It had semi-sheer coverage that applied evenly and smoothly across the lips. The texture was soft, lightly emollient, and comfortable to wear. Despite being sheer and emollient, it did not pull into my lip lines. This shade wore well for three hours on me and was hydrating.

Super Sonic

Kat Von D Super Sonic Everlasting Glimmer Veil Liquid Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.18 oz.) is a medium-dark, coppery brown with warm, red undertones and flecks of green and gold sparkle. It had semi-opaque coverage in a single layer on its own, and it was buildable to full coverage with a second layer. The texture was thin and felt watery going on, but it dried down to a transfer-resistant stain (but the product breaks down in water). The base definitely leaves a strong stain behind, even as the color wore away over a 10-hour period. The formula was a bit drying over time.

This was an “Everlasting Flash” shade, so it was released for 48-hours, and I’m not certain if or when it will be returning (the brand just says “limited edition” and that it was “only” going to be available during the flash sale).

Formula Overview

$22.00/0.18 oz. - $122.22 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have “24-hour wear” with a “liquid stain base” that “feels like nothing” on the lips that can be worn “on its own” or layered “as a veil” over another lip color. There’s a lot to like about the formula, and I think as far as the concept of “lip toppers” go, it offers the versatility of actually being easy enough to apply to wear on its own but still be useful layered over other products for a shimmering effect. The doe-foot applicator worked well with the formula, as it spread the color and sparkly bits across the lips quite evenly. The coverage ranged from shade to shade with most having medium, buildable coverage in a single layer, which was in line with the description. They dried down and were transfer-resistant (until eating/drinking/licking of lips) but still had a great shimmering effect that made them look wet, even when they dried. They were more comfortable to wear than I anticipated–lightweight and just a little drying.

One of the bigger downsides is that it’s not going to wear 24 hours. Just about every single shade (all but Thunderstruck) stained my lips intensely, which helped prolong the wear, but the product breaks down with water, just plain water, and of course, it is removable by a slew of removers, including oil which one might encounter during a meal. I found deeper shades stained well but removed unevenly and left behind stained lines and patches on my lips that did not dissipate for almost 24-hours post wear. I didn’t notice that the lip color did not take well to water initially, as I didn’t see any transfer on my glasses, but when I rinsed after I brushed my teeth (where I cup water in my hands, so less elegant than drinking from a glass), I had lip color running like crazy.

This led me to pay even more attention the next time I wore the formula, and sure enough, color lifted with just a sip of water and transferred onto things like paper (but not glassware) and the back of my hand. Some shades made it through meals better than others with the worst offenders lifting more noticeably from the center of the lips. The formula survives some eating and drinking, but the more you drink, the less it survives, and even careful eating/drinking yielded noticeably faded wear between eight and twelve hours of wear. I don’t think a brand would advocate 24-hour wear but expect you not to eat, drink, or even brush your teeth! I would consider it long-wearing in the grand scheme of things with solid six to ten hour wear depending on the shade. They do stain significantly less when layered over something like the brand’s Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks but can seep through more emollient lipstick formulas.

Yes, I used to be a lot drier growing up, but then I started to have a skincare routine that I did consistently, which helped my skin stay hydrated. I’m normal-to-dry, though I have found that since living in Arizona, my skin feels more normal with only occasional dryness (typically from over-swatching).
