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?
