The Cure For Lipstick Virgins


Do you regularly moisturize your lips and really enjoy wearing clear or very sheer lip balm? Do you never wear too much color on your lips? Then, you are what I call a Lipstick Virgin.

But you don’t have to be afraid of color and shy away from more traditional lipsticks, thanks to the wonderful Clinique Almost Lipstick range. Trying them will let you get used to color and can help you in your apprenticeship of wearing a more colorful, grown-up lip. Plus, it will keep your lips moisturized thanks to its rich and comfortable texture. A real win-win!

Swatches of Clinique Almost Lipstick in Black Honey and Luscious Honey.

I own two colors, Black Honey (left on picture) and Luscious Honey. Black Honey is a dark red with a berry-brown tone. Personally, I find it too brown for my fair skin. I don’t use it very often. The other one, Luscious Honey (right), I use a lot. It is a sheer red with cold, pink undertones. It is an easy way to get used to red lipstick progressively, or to wear a red hue during the day.

Swatches on my lips:

Black Honey – the flash makes it more red. In real life, it is browner.

Luscious Honey – the flash makes it look more pink. In reality, it is more of a sheer red.

Hope you enjoyed this review!
