An Oldie But a Goodie — Clinique Black Honey Almost Lipstick

This was perhaps my first beauty product obsession.

Cameron Diaz — who was starring in the 1996 movie "She's The One" — was featured in the pages of InStyle magazine wearing MAC Spice lipliner topped with Clinique's Almost Lipstick in Black Honey. It was (and still is) such a great look.

MAC has since changed its Spice lipliner — the color's more pinky, not as brownish and neutral so I use Oak instead. Black Honey ($14), though, is still the same. It's scary looking as you roll up the tube — inky as a starless night. But slick it on, and your lips turn just a bit darker and have a lovely, sheer deep red hue. It's glossy enough to lend some sheen. For those who are scared of full-on red lips, this is a good gateway shade.

K - I forgot how much I liked the Clinique gloss. I used to wear it all the time. Thanks for reminding me. K
