"I must have this," I said, before spending countless hours chasing this soon-to-be unicorn. The lipstick is a light, sheer colour that is part pink, mauve, brown, taupe - it's a colour and a neutral all at once. It has a great layering ability, allowing you to wear it as light or dark as you want.
Last week, I came across a pack dedicated to Black Honey in Sephora, including the lipstick, a gloss, polish and their very excellent black mascara. Somewhere along the way, common sense prevailed and Clinique decided to keep the shade in its range and we can all be thankful for that. (Perhaps they were never going to discontinue it and were rather drumming up hysteria and interest in gullible people like me...)
