The story

“This fall season, Clinique introduces The New Black, a colour collection inspired by a cult classic.  What began in 1971 as simply a new lip gloss shade, Black Honey instantly became a success.  In 1989 when Black Honey was later launched as an Almost Lipstick, no one realized the incredible impact it would have. Legions of devoted women have turned it into a serious cult favorite and it quickly evolved into a modern classic.

Today, a single lip colour has stimulated an entire collection featuring the universal shade for the eyes, lips and cheek. The New Black is flattering on all skin tones and ultra wearable for a completely feminine look.”

    Damnit, I still want that blush! I know it's at Nordstrom, and they have free shipping, but I find it such a waste to have them ship me one thing. Which means I should buy more things. BUT I CAN'T. I just can't!

    I tried the black honey line recently and it resembled what i'd refer to as "chola" makeup on me. Which is on trend – but not my thing. It's probably the only lip product my boyfriend and I have agreed on – we both disliked it. Such a shame because the IDEA of a universal shade is so awesome!

    I loved the gloss but have way too many similar shades going right now to indulge in this. I love plum and black cherry, though. Like Larie, I was drawn to the blush, but it costs freaking CAD$35! It's pretty but not THAT pretty. It also seemed quite powdery at close range but I ran away from the SA before she could launch into a spiel, so I wait for your review with great anticipation! LOL
