Clinique Almost Lipstick in Black Honey

I've been delaying the posting of this review for far too long, mainly because I thought that the Clinique Almost Lipstick in Black Honey ($19, full-size) isn't all that Spring/Summer appropriate. Now, it's back to school (aka FALL) and dark lips are slowly making their way back into my beauty regimen. Black Honey is the sheerer version of a dark lip, a gateway beauty drug to something a little more pigmented. 

A deluxe sample of the Clinique Almost Lipstick in Black Honey came in my Holt Renfrew Spring 2014 Beauty Bag. I was happy to get something with quite the cult following. In the tube, the product looks like a ridiculously deep lippy, but it's really an "almost" lipstick - kind of hard and balmy in texture, which ends up translating to something of a sheer, shiny wine-burgundy on the lips. High-five for everyday wearable lippies! 

The Almost Lipstick is not particularly moisturizing, so if your lips are a bit dry the product can catch onto dry patches or fine lines (as is with any other lip product). Wear time is not long, about 2 or 3 hours but the colour fades gracefully to leave a light just-bitten black honey stain. Overall, a perfect sheer lip colour that I can wear daily as I transition my makeup into the fall time.

Do you transition your lip colours as the seasons change? What have you been wearing on your lips lately?
