Clinique Black Honey is a moderately warm-toned, medium plum with a natural finish. It is a lipstick that is permanent in this palette: Honey, Honey.

Editor's Review

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.

I'm surprised that there is no review for Black Honey, despite its popularity. I agree that the shade itself is fine, but I have very mixed feelings for this formula. It's non-sticky and buildable, but the color marks every lip line on me and if I have even slight bit of flakes, they will be visible, too. Pigmentation is fine for a lip balm. The balm itself melts easily and can break from the tube + it can leave small particles. I heard many complaints from people that this balm may be dry. It didn't dry out my lips, but it didn't moisturuze either. Don't even look for moistening here. The balm, of course, isn't long lasting. It smells like fried bees wax, for someone there is something camphory. I think that Black Honey doesn't deserve its hype. The formula is very mediocre, the shade itself isn't as appealing as how it's advertised. It costs more than 25$ for a simple lip balm and more than 14$ for a mini version, I'm sorry, but it's TOO PRICEY!!! I definitely won't buy Black Honey again. Korean brands like ROM&ND and Peripera have different lip balms with similar colors like Black Honey, but they have much better formula and cost less than Clinique.
