I decided to pick up Clinique Black Honey Gift Set after hearing the products look good good on all skin tones. This kit comes with a lipgloss, moisturizing lipstick, eyeliner, and a nail polish. I was a little skeptical looking at it on the website because it looked really dark. I really don’t have many lip products that looked as dark as the Black Honey ones showed online. I decided to pick it and up and test the theory on how it looks good on everyone!
I did not get to play around with the nail polish yet since I currently have gel nails that I did want to take off yet! I did however played around with the lip products and eyeliner.
I used the eyeliner on my lower lash line. I am not sure if I like this color on my eyes. I will definitely need to play with it a little more, but my first impression was “eh”. It had more of a red tint than I liked when I out it on with my neutral eye. This may work with other eyeshadow colors that I will try eventually.

The lip products though I actually really loved! The gloss and lipstick are not opaque and do not appear the same color as the tubes once applied to lips. My fear of these colors coming out too dark were gone! I have always loved Clinique lip glosses and this one was no exception. The texture isn’t sticky and glides on smoothly. I had never tried any of the lipsticks and was surprised when it came out more sheer than I thought. To be honest though, once applied, I didn’t really a notice a big difference between the lipstick and lip gloss. I would recommend purchasing one or the other if you had to limit on buying one lip product and your choices were between these too. I love how the color gives the right amount of Black Honey tint to my lips while keeping them nice and moisturized!
Now why don’t you try to win a set for yourself?!
See how this color works on other beauty bloggers!
