Product: Clinique Black Honey

Like most girls I know, I've never been much of a lipstick girl.  Growing up, magazines and beauty experts always steered us towards lip gloss and tinted balms - subtle and foolproof alternatives to our mother's lipsticks.  As much as I still love the ease and simplicity (and foolproof-ness) of gloss and balm, I've recently become a huge fan of lipstick.

I had heard a lot about Clinique's Black Honey color.  As a fair skinned girl, I was definitely intimated by what it looked like in the tube, but I had heard so many good things that I had to give it a shot.  Everyone who tries it talks about how it looks good on all skin tones...and they're right.

It gives a nice, lightly glossy swipe of color that isn't overpowering or too opaque.  At the same time, it's definitely a bolder and more grown-up look.  And while I love the look for nighttime, it would just as easily be daytime-appropriate.  

I also purchased the gloss version, which is nice as well.  It has a similarly flattering color, but in a more sheer, low-key look.  

Have you tried Black Honey?  Are you a fan of lipstick?  Have you ever been surprised by a color that was intimidating in the tube, but totally flattering once applied?
