Most Helpful Positive Review Can't leave the house with out it!
For the past 8 years I have bought this product. I swear by it! It's beautiful, natural, moisturizing. You can dress it up or dress it down. I wear it almost every day!
Most Helpful Critical Review Love the lipstick, not the color
I really like the consistency of this lipstick. It's not too heavy & not sticky like lipgloss tends to be. I only wish there were more colors available. I didn't think this shade worked well with my skin tone.

Azil from Manchester NH
Color is OK. However I can't wear it because so many lipsticks feel OK when I put them on, but the next day my lips feel burnt and a little chapped and irritated. I've tried so hard to find a really good moisturizing non-irritating lipstick, but even the chubby sticks hurt my lips the next day.
Best lip product on the planet
haisuli from Salt Lake City
Smooth, chic, moisturizing, versatile, on my fair skin it looks like a natural rosy flush. Can be used as a sheer, casual nude or layered for an elegant deeper shade. Loooooove this product, I wear it every single day. Please keep it in stock!!!!!!!
LOVE IT! Worth the hype!
Rachi! from Filmore
I absolutely love this lipstick! It's a thin balm feeling formula that is buildable! It's a natural "your own red lip" look :) You do have to reapply it when eating though, but that is to be expected
Holy Grail Lip Color
Quinn from CA
This product is exactly what I've been searching for and absolutely worth all the hype! I am a huge fan of balmy lipsticks and am so glad I finally tried this "almost lipstick". The color is stunning and very flattering and the lipstick itself is not sticky and feels great on the lips! I absolutely love everything about it!
Love the product, component broke
Sarah from CA
Would be 5 stars, but the component broke a week after purchase. I can twist to push the product out but have to press on the end of the product to push it back into the tube. The lipstick itself is beautiful, easy application, balmy texture
Every makeup lover needs this
Kira from Utah
Your one-and-done lipstick for hydrating, gorgeous color that goes with everything. Clinique hit it out of the park with this one. I'm reordering now before mine runs out so I'm not caught without it!
Chrissy from California
I received this in the face forward kit and was SCARED lol. It's VERY dark looking. I tried it on this morning and was excited! It's a beautiful color and is like a texture between lipstick and gloss. Like people say,it won't last through a meal,but don't toss it out! Wish I could post a pic!
Worth the hype
MK from Seattle
Definitely worth the hype. I love how subtle and accentuating of my natural lips. Looks and feels amazing. Won't last you through a meal, but worth every penny. Even my boyfriend noticed it right away and complimented me.
The best lipstick of all time!
allbeauty249 from New York, NY
This is my all-time favorite lipstick. It is so hydrating and natural-looking - plus the color looks great on absolutely everyone. I have gifted it to many friends and family members and they have all loved it. It is a must-have in my makeup routine.
Classic and essential
AnneM from Denver, Colorado
I like to try different lipsticks because, well, makeup is fun! But when the chips are down and I have 10 minutes to get ready for a zoom call or any other public appearance (as if, during COVID!) Clinique's Black Honey is the lipstick I grab. It always looks natural and flattering, no matter what I'm wearing or the amount of makeup I already have on. Also, it's buildable into exactly the depth of color I want. Highly recommended!

Really pretty on and keeps your lips soft. But it settled and balls into lines so bad.
Best thing I've ever owned!
Ren R from Colorado
I'm really pale, so I was super skeptical about this product. It's the best! Super hydrating and buildable. I really enjoy that it's sheer as well!
Worth the hype
Jaia from NY
I saw this ALL over tiktok but didnt buy it until i saw Michaela review it, this is such a flattering shade and the perfect amount of pigment for it being a darker color, i use it all the time so happy I purchased it!
perfect fall lip color:)
A from Richmond, VA
didn't expect much, but it's actually really beautiful on the lips! perfect everyday color for fall & winter. keep in mind it's more of a sheer balm than lipstick but i still love it!
Ms. Becky from Austin, TX
This is not a true lipstick. But, it does enhance the natural color of your lips. It also adds hydration as well. I highly recommend this product. It is the perfect addition to your lip routine.
Kateryna from NJ
Like this product! I've used it for a 3 years. It looks dark but turns sheer with beautiful cherry tone on the lips.
Mari2809 from Georgia
I really like the texture, it is very creamy, like a balm, the lipstick has very good hydration and a perfectly pigmented shade.
Perfect Tinted Balm
Melissa from Humble, TX
I was really surprised at how much color this lip balm (Black Honey) gives. I have fair skin and from the reviews and pictures, I thought it would be very subtle and I wouldn't really notice much. I was so wrong! The first layer is definitely an enhancement to the normal color of my lips but the color builds nicely with each layer. The color looks great as a causal everyday wear and also as a formal wear or to work. Some reviews said there isn't very much of the product and it runs out quickly, but I've worn it a few times a week for about a month now and still have product left.
Great for everyday wear
JJ the Psych Teacher from Pepperell, MA
This lip (balm? stick? gloss?) is a great product! It adds color without being too bold. It's moisturizing and a bit glossy. The color looks dark, but when applied is a gorgeous almost raisin shade. I have fair skin and it is not too dark for me.
Got 1 use out of it
in_new_york_city from NJ
Beautiful color and texture but unfortunately the lipstick got stuck to the top of the tube after one use and I was unable to unstick it. Whole tube wasted.
Clear natural color
Pam from Dallas, Tx
I have been wearing Black Honey since it first came on the market in 71. I was a professional singer/musician and this was the only lipgloss that had a smooth natural color without caking and more importantly, did not leave a film on my teeth or in my throat, which was paramount as a singer. While I'm happy for Clinique and others that it has recently become popular, I am hopeful that this stock shortage will be resolved ASAP. Please do not ever discontinue.
Received as a free sample and never want to be without
Mary B from Flemington, NJ
I received this a few days ago as a free sample and have been wearing it ever since. It is so natural looking and comfortable and gives your lips that perfect pink look without being uncomfortable. i will definitely purchase the full size. This is great!
Overpriced lip balm
Blondee from FL
It's way overpriced for a lip balm that lasts 30 minutes. Not much color, very sheer. Any colored lip
Balm for 5.00 or less is just as good. I'm a cosmetic buyer for over 50 years, I know the hype of certain items. This is one that missed it's mark.
a from Missouri
Tik tok didn't make me buy it but I love that this product is getting recognition! I think it looks great on everyone!
A MUST HAVE
prissydoll from Happy place
You need this even if you don't think you do. I love it and use it all the time .
