One of Clinique's newest additions is the line of Almost Lipstick's,
they offer glossy, non-staining light coverage with a shine finish and a dose of moisture.
They come sleekly packaged in chrome slim long line silver packaging
that feels as luxurious as it looks!

Chic Honey is a deep plum shade in bullet form yet applied 
and swatched it takes on a brown tone with a slight hint of purple.
I didn't expect to like this shade as much as I do
but it is really wearable and surprisingly flattering!
Out of all the shades in the Almost Lipstick range this has to be the most pigmented
and applies a light plum toned brown shade to the lips with ease.

As earlier mentioned these are not aimed to be pigmented
but their purpose is to deliver a hint of a tint with a glossy finish.
Basically these are very much tinted lip balms but without all the fuss or mess.
I find potted lip balms to bleed and be a nuisance to apply but as these are in lip stick form
they are super easy to apply and with precision too!
They feel light and comfortable to wear non - sticky and hydrating.
Some shades are of course more pigmented than others but generally speaking they
don't deliver a massive dose of colour so you may want to layer it over another lip shade.
In terms of wear I achieved around 2 hours before the gloss and hint of colour faded.

If you like tinted lip balm type products but wish they were more controllable,
this is a product you should investigate as it ticks every box!
It is also lovely for those days you want to achieve a polished look with minimal effort
such as hot balmy days in the summer when full on lipstick just feels a little too much!

** On a side note I have had a few requests about the Black Honey range,
I shall hopefully pick those up this week so keep your eyes peeled!**
