I've been told the "no make-up" look is very much in style, but style has never been something that concerns me very much. I am who I am! But, I do enjoy using products that enhance the face, instead of trying to cover up flaws. Clinique's Almost LipStick in the Black Honey shade has been a dress-up staple of mine for a few years now. I don't use if for every day, as you don't get very much in the small, slender tube for your $14.00, and you need to reapply it every hour or so, but for special occasions, it's great!
Almost Lipstick is a cross between a lipstick and a lip gloss. It is more of a lip stain than anything else. It looks MUCH darker in the tube than it does when you apply it to your lips! It goes on smoothly, and is lightweight - you can't even tell you have it on. It enhances your natural lip tone beautifully, and I would go so far as to say that this is a universally flattering shade and would look good on women with fair, medium, or dark complexions. A basic makeup product that I can't stay away from!
