Clinique Sweet Pot Sugar Scrub & Lip Balm | Black Honey

5/04/2016




If you know anything about Clinique makeup, you'll know that their Black Honey shade is iconic! It has a cult following because it's very special - any woman can wear it and it looks different on everyone. This color was first introduced to me via the brand's 'almost' lipstick (aka tinted lip balm) which I've admired for years. It's one of Elle's 'best beauty products' since 1985.! Then I found out about the eyeshadow and truly fell in love. There's also a moisturizing gloss and a Chubby Stick available in this particular brown/burgundy shade. I will not withhold from you the fact that I felt speechless when I saw the color in my hands - not only the color, but I have it as part of the newest Clinique launch! I'm so glad makeup still makes me so happy and excited - the spark hasn't been lost!

Clinique Sweet Pot Sugar Scrub & Lip Balm in 06 Black Honey ($19) will be frowned upon by women who are really into their power pouts, matte lippies and strong makeup. However, women who are very much into their natural makeup, perhaps prefer quick slap-n-dash makeup whilst having extra dry, chapped lips all the time .... well my sisters, if you fall into the latter group you'll love this! It single handedly solves the struggle of trying to wear a traditional lipstick on a weather-worn pout. This ultra-moisturizing formula conditions lips while providing a lightweight wash of the most flattering color.

Looking like the cutest macaron, it houses a lip scrub on one side and a tinted lip balm on the other, both being divided by a silver band. The scrub contains a cocktail of natural ingredients to buff away flaky skin with beet sugar granules, jojoba seed oil, shea butter, avocado and grapeseed oils. It's a rather refined but effective sugar scrub and gets rid of almost all dry skin + it's tinted. Not messily so as it imparts a bit of a stain to the lips so you end up with smooth, prepped lips upon which then you apply the juiciest, most bouncy and most flattering lip balm.

The balm contains aloe leaf extract, coconut oil, shea and murumuru seed butters which really do leave lips feeling extra soft and plump. Black Honey color is super flattering because it's literally the only thing you need to pull of a simple base, defined brows and a lick of mascara - and to yet look so effortlessly put together. The color doesn't last long, perhaps for an hour or two but it's not even a faff to apply - I just stick my lips into it (as you do). It's a mighty luxe lip balm option, in all honesty - but I love it! And even though I'm probably mad, I'd actually purchase and repurchase it along with every Black Honey product out there.

  • Ako ste barem mrvicu upratile trendove koje vecinom ljudi vezu za Clinique kao brend, onda ste zasigurno cule za njhovu Black Honey nijansu koja je izuzetno popularna! Ova karakteristicna boja ima kultni klub obozavateljica diljem svijeta jer je posebna - svi je mogu nositi i uvijek izgleda drugacije uz razlicite kombinacije boje koze, ociju, kose. Prvi put sam je primjetila u sklopu Almost Lipstick ruzeva, koji su ustvari balzami u boji. Divila sam mu se godinama, sto je zasluzio - jos od 1985. ulazi u najuzu selekciju beauty favorita casopisa Elle! Potom sam se zaljubila u sjenu za oci ove nijanse a znam da postoje jos Chubby Stick i hidratantno sjajilo u ovoj unikatnoj nijansi vina/cokolade. Necu kriti da sam ostala bez teksta kada se jedan Black Honey primjerak nasao u mojim rukama + radi se o uzbudljivom Clinique novitetu. Drago mi je sto me kozmetika jos uvijek uzbudjuje i usrecuje - sreca je u malim stvarima!
  • Clinique Sweet Pot secerni piling i balzam za usne nijanse 06 Black Honey (cca 45KM) nece dojmiti zene koje vole snazno nasminkane, mat usne i uopsteno jaku sminku. Ako ste pak tip zene koji preferira prirodniju sminku, mozda vam najvise odgovara nesto sto se brzo nanosi i ne oduzima vrijeme a k tome jos imate problem suhih usana ... drage zene, ako ste u ovoj drugoj grupici, oduseviti ce vas ovaj lijepi kozmeticki kolacic! Samostalno rijesava borbu da se na suhim usnama nosi nesto slicno ruzu. Ultra hidratantna formulacija njeguje usne i pruza im najljepsu boju.
  • Poput najsladjeg macaron kolacica, u loptici se nalaze secerni piling sa jedne a balzam u boji sa druge strane, odvojeni srebrnim prstenom. Piling sadrzi kombinaciju sastojaka koji na prirodan nacin eksfoliraju, pruzaju ugodu i obnavljaju kozu usana, tacnije uz pomoc granula secerne repe, jojoba ulja, karite butera, ulja avokada i ulja sjemenki grozdja. Uklanja gotovo svu suhu kozu + ostavlja boju. Ali ne neurednu boju jer je njegov efekat 'stain' koji ostaje na usnama te ga mozete intenzivirati socnim balzamom u boji.
  • Balzam sadrzi kombinaciju prirodnih sastojaka koji usne cine mekim, zagladjenim i hidratiziranim - sadrzi ekstrakt listova aloe vere, kokosovo ulje, karite i murumuru maslac koji su izuzetno njegujuca ali i nemasna kombinacija. Black Honey (crni med) je izuzetno zahvalna nijansa koja ce savrseno upotpuniti onaj nemarno sarmantni i sofisticirani makeup koji se sastoji samo od lagane baze, uredjenih obrva i malo maskare. Sama boja se ne zadrzava previse dugo, otprilike 2h a nije ga tesko ni koristiti - ne trebaju vam cak ni prstici, ja ga 'poljubim' i to je to. Ruku na srce, ovo je dosta luksuzan i skup balzam u boji ali sa jednakom iskrenoscu - kupila bih ga iznova i iznova, kao i sve Black Honey kozmeticke proizvode!
