Clinique Almost Lipstick Launches

Ever since I began working at Clinique, I've pretty much become obsessed with all of the products and the brand itself. After all, I'm living and breathing Clinique for about 25 hours every week!

So, imagine my surprise (and complete and utter joy!) when I came across a post about Clinique's newest product launch on my favorite beauty site, Temptalia. Of course, I already knew all about Almost Lipstick, but it was still awesome seeing it.

One of Clinique's classic products is a lipstick called Black Honey, which is a dark, sheer shade that is flattering on literally everyone. They relaunched the line last year to include a limited edition blush and Almost Lipstick.

As it turns out, the shade was so successful that the Clinique execs decided to bring back Almost Lipstick in not only Black Honey, but seven other shades as well:
  • Black Honey
  • Shy Honey
  • Tender Honey
  • Spice Honey
  • Luscious Honey
  • Chic Honey
  • Lovely Honey
  • Flirty Honey
Almost Lipstick is another highly successful, temporarily discontinued Clinique product. Its a lipstick with a more moisturizing consistency. It is extremely sheer, allowing each person's natural lip color to show through, but with a subtle hint of the shade itself. They create an extremely natural look that is completely perfect for spring! 

Another interesting thing I've learned: Clinique's Almost Lipstick has received more credits in Elle magazine's history than any other lipstick! [In case you're not aware, I also intern at Elle, which makes this little fact extremely ironic.]

The new line of Almost Lipstick is now available at Clinique counters nationwide. Will you be buying it?
