    The color looks really dark but it's not. It's translucent. I would have never bought it just by looking at the color but I got a sample & surprisingly love it

    Comments about Clinique Almost Lipstick:

    What is it with Clinique's colors not being true to color. The color I bought is black honey. It looks like a deep purple berry (very purple) in the tube. Again, on me, it looks red, just like the pink chocolate I bought in their long lasting lipstick line looks red on me. K thought it'd be more purple, much more purple. Not happy. Can I return or exchange it? Oh, also, wears off really fast.

    Classic color best used for day and casual needs. Very pretty and flattering on most skin colors. My only issues are that it wears off quickly and can be slightly drying.

      Comments about Clinique Almost Lipstick:

      I got the darker color, and plan to order the lighter one as well. Tinted, but not overwhelming and it is moisturizing as well. I often use as a balm and to add color at the same time. I like Glossier's "Generation G" light tints as well, but this one moisturizes better. Very happy with this purchase!

        non drying

        By tjaren

        from Spartanburg, SC

        Comments about Clinique Almost Lipstick:

        This is a great non drying lip color that has a very sheer hint of color. It's a cross between a lip balm and a lipstick. The colors are great. I own this in both pink honey and black honey.

          Hello, Is this lipstick gluten free? Sometimes vit. E could be from a gluten source.
          Asked on 11/15/2017 by rox from NJ

            A:

            Hi. Clinique Almost Lipstick does not contain any gluten derived ingredients. For the benefit of our gluten-sensitive consumers who may have cross-sensitivities, Clinique takes the extra precaution of including soy, corn, and rice in our research in addition to wheat, oat, barley and rye derivatives.

            In addressing your concern about gluten, we would like to explain that a vast number of raw materials from many different suppliers and sources are used in the manufacture of Clinique's products. It is therefore not possible for us to fully guarantee that our products are completely free of ingredients that may elicit an allergic response in highly sensitive individuals who react to gluten. For example, it is possible that small amounts of a wheat sourced ingredient may remain on shared manufacturing equipment even after a thorough cleaning. We, therefore, recommend that you discuss this with your physician because consumer safety is of utmost concern to us. Thank you for your question and have a great week!

            Hi! Thank you for your question! Clinique does not test on animals. Clinique does not test on animals and we never ask others to do so on our behalf. If a regulatory body demands it for its safety or regulatory assessment, an exception can be made. Our consumers can be certain that we are committed to producing only the highest quality beauty products which meet our exacting efficacy, safety and ethical standards. CliniqueFit products sold in North America are not tested on animals. Thank you for your question and have a great week!

            Hi! This is a wonderful lipstick for a more natural make up look. It is not one of our lipsticks that has a specific long wearing claim. Thank you for your interest in Clinique!
