About a million years ago when I was in high school, Clinique came out with a Lip Shine that wasn’t a matte lipstick or a gloss, but a combination of the two, which instantly became a hit with women everywhere. One of the colors offered was #16, Black Honey. What was so amazing about this particular color is that it flatters EVERYONE – regardless of your skin tone or eye color or your lip shape and texture. Black Honey is probably one of make up history’s great all time achievements! And now the color is being translated in to a Shimmering Tones Powder that may rank up there as make up history’s all time great achievement #2.
Clinique’s Black Honey Shimmering Tones Powder is a limited edition, multitone powder. The cult favorite Black Honey shimmers in this beautifully blended powder, instantly creating a sheer, subtle radiance that looks great on everyone, just like the classic that inspired it.
Believe me, this powder is like magic. I’ve been sick for the past few days, and when I looked in the mirror this morning my skin resembled a cross between the Crypt Keeper and Princess Fiona (after she married Shrek…) Two swipes of this shimmering powder and, damn, if I didn’t look healthy and vibrant! It’s even better on a good day, giving you just enough sparkle that people say, “Wow, you look great…did you cut your hair or something…?” I don’t know what it is about the Black Honey color, but it does something magical and it works for everyone and with every skin tone.
Available for a limited time only through Sephora, Shimmering Tones Powder in Black Honey retails for $32.50 – and it’s well worth the investment!
