If there’s one product that every woman who’s ever purchased it swears by, it’s Clinique’s lipstick in Black Honey. The classic red lipstick has been around since the brand launched in 1968, and countless women consider this their one go-to shade of red lipstick—but now you don’t even need to own a lipstick at all to wear this famous color! Clinique just launched its new Dewy Black Honey lip gloss, which gives you the same look as the iconic lipstick without actually having to apply the lipstick itself.
The online platform TikTok did what it seemed to do best last summer: it grabbed a traditional beauty product that had been available for years and propelled it into sold-out contemporary stardom. Everyone was vying for a tube of Clinique Black Honey lipstick for months, which has a dark blackberry shade that applies sheer and gives your lips the ideal amount of subtle colour. The pigment appears somewhat differently on each individual depending on their natural lip colour, which is why the hue is so universally adored since it mysteriously looks nice on everyone.
Since its introduction in 1971, Black Honey has existed in a form midway between a lip tint and a lipstick; now, for the first time ever, the cosmetic product is now available in a totally new shape: lip balm
Black Honey Pop Plush Creamy Lip Gloss, $20.00
Are you not a fan of black honey?
The Black Honey Pop Plush Creamy Lip Gloss, which is buttery and just the right amount of shine, provides the colour you know and love but with a little more gloss. The gloss provides all-day moisture and is made with aloe, avocado, shea butter, and hyaluronic acid. Application is made simple by the hourglass-shaped doe foot; in fact, I’ve done it while sitting in traffic. Unlike many other glosses, this one isn’t sticky; it’s just gloss without the stickiness. Additionally, it lacks the shine of the Limited Too gloss. The hue is exactly Black Honey; it’s just glossier.
“The gloss’s potential to be too dark for my complexion truly frightened me. But as soon as it came in contact with my lips, the colour changed into a stunning rose-pink that matched the hue of my lips. The product gives my lips a much sharper shape and is quite moisturising. Plus, it actually stays on.
The superior composition of Clinique’s Pop Plush gives my lips a larger appearance and provides long-lasting nourishment. Despite the consistency being rather sticky, applying the gloss is a snap thanks to the figure eight applicator. I adore the Black Honey shade’s high shine gloss, which matches my skin tone and ties all of my makeup looks together. – Kayla Hui, a writer for commerce
