They introduced the black honey in like 1997 or 1998 and it is their top seller. It always pops up in the gift with purchase as well.


I am on my phone, please forgive the typos.

Great replies thanks everyone!

We can't get Sephora down here

I will definitely check out the Clinique though!

I am very fair and have to be careful what I wear. I look much better with a strong colour like a wine or a red. Pinks tend to look "orangey" on me and just too pale.

Christina Hendricks wears some great colours on Mad Men.

Maybe in lipstick form, but when I worked at a major department store in 1978, Clinique had a pot of lip gloss named black honey..... gorgeous shade, that also worked for my pale cool toned skin....

I ended up returning it -- something in it reacted with my skin and I got cold sores.... over and over.

Any color can be cool or warm. If the color is cool, then you might notice a bluish tone to it. If the color is warm it will have a yellowish tone to it. If the pinks you are trying on look orange, I would bet they are warm toned with yellow. The pinks you pick need to be on the blue side -- look for names like fuschia or magenta. Or head for purple toned lipsticks.

And you might simply not like pink on you.... I love dark colors on other people, but I hate them on myself. They just look all wrong.

I seem to have had a reaction to few lipstick ingredients along the way, one most recent is one from the, L'Oreal Color Riche collection. Could be something about the ingredient as to why it's discontinued.

I really like Clinique brand for makeup. I like a light pink color. I do feel reds are striking for a formal evening and with certain outfit.

I am also fair, with brown hair. But, it seems like color responds to me opposite than it does to you...I like bronze, red-brown or orange coral. Some reds in the tube go purple on me, pinks and wines go almost violet and if I put on a purple you would run away screaming.

Cinder ~

I have a huge collection of lipsticks in many, many colors. I even like to wear a little bit of it when I'm home! Oddly enough, one of my favorites is a "mood lipstick" that reacts to your own skin with a natural rosy tone. They're never predictible to find in stores, so you'd probably have to order one online. I have a good one from Wet & Wild, a cheap line of affordable makeup (some of it quite good for the price).
