Cult Classic: Clinique A Black Honey Affair

14 Oct

Clinique A Black Honey Affair

In 1971, Clinique created a phenomenon with the introduction of a deep, blackened raisin hue for their Clinique Glosswear for Lips collection called Black Honey. Nearly 20 years later, the Black Honey shade was launched as an Almost Lipstick: a cross between a lipstick and lip gloss that is perfectly unique for every woman.

Inspired by this cult classic, Clinique has introduced the limited edition A Black Honey Affair All About Shadow octet. Offering the same versatility, the palette contains a range of shades from light browns to deep purples that works for all skin tones:

  • The first four shades can be worn together or alone to create a neutral daytime look.
  • The four purple tones can be paired with the neutral hues for a pop of colour, or layered together to create a dramatic smoky violet eye look.
