Why Clinique Has Gone Viral On TikTok
When you think of makeup in the 90s and early 2000s what springs to mind? Remember Lancôme's glistening Juicy Tubes? Then there's Rimmel's Shimmer Lipstick in Heather. Today though, we're paying homage to the cult classic that is Clinique's Almost Lipstick in Black Honey. Somehow this beauty icon has made its way into the TikTok ether and Gen Z simply can't get enough of it.
Clinique's Almost Lipsticks are lipstick-meets-lip-balm hybrids that serve up sheer pigment and bags of shine. As for the lauded Black Honey shade? If you're unfamiliar expect to balk at the deep shade of the bullet itself, but reserve judgement until you've applied it. The lipstick translates to a translucent Merlot-toned tint.
Sadly - as is par for the course with anything that goes viral on TikTok at the moment - Clinique's Almost Lipstick in Black honey is sold out for the moment, but do stay tuned. It's never off the beauty shelves for long.
For those who really can't wait we've curated a selection of lipsticks that fit the bill to fill that Black Honey void:

You can count on Charlotte Tilbury to make a good lipstick. This one is packed full of hyaluronic acid and passioline butter, to nurture and soothe.
Glossier's offering has more of a berry hint, with a satin matte finish.
As pretty as it is protective (it includes an SPF15).
This high street classic feels equally as hydrating as TikTok's favourite shade.
