Clinique Almost Lipstick- Black Honey

I recently received this as a sample. I had no idea that this product had been out for quite some time. Nevertheless, I like it. I’m not in love with it—but I like it. It seems that it only comes in one color: Black Honey. This product is described as follows:

Not quite lipstick, not quite lip gloss but works like a little of each. Looks sleek, moist. Sheer non-stain shades.Transparent pigment merges with the unique, natural tone of your lips to create something wonderful and yours alone. Sheer, glossy. Emollient-rich and very lightweight.

My first impression of Clinique Almost Lipstick was that it has the consistency of a lip balm; just with a tint to it. I would definitely describe this as lip tint, but I reckon “Almost Lipstick” has a nice, curious catch to it. It goes on pretty light, but it definitely buildable. I have to go over my luscious lips about 6 or 7 times to get the color I want. It is a very dark shade, which I don’t normally wear, but it doesn’t look bad. What I really like about the product is that it very moisturizing. However, I can already see that if I purchased a full sized version of this, it would run out probably 5 times faster than actual lipstick, with regular use. I do wish there were different colors and it went on darker.

I know, doesn’t look like much but feels amazing.
