I will always associate my friend Tracy with Clinique Black Honey Almost Lipstick. She was obsessed with Black Honey waaay back, before "obsessed" was a thing. And for good reason: the sheer blackened-raisin shade was marvelous against her pale skin and lush, natural copper-red hair. (Yep, she's also blessed with clear green eyes.) Were you into Black Honey too? You know it's inspired a limited-edition Clinique Black Honey Affair eyeshadow palette? And a holiday beauty gift set?

Clinique Black Honey Almost Lipstick($19 at sephora.ca and $16 at sephora.com) turned 25 this year. The shade itself is 43. And the Clinique A Black Honey Affair All About Shadow Palette($40 at sephora.ca and $36 at sephora.com) is just about a month or so old. Created to celebrate Black Honey's enduring cult-classic status, the palette is also positioned as a nod to that ’90s makeup aesthetic: intense, defined brows, flushed cheeks and deep, wine-stained lips. The look is back. I dig it, of course.
Here's a handy infographic of Black Honey triva from Clinique:
The Black Honey affair continues with a holiday Clinique Black Honey Beauty Gift Set($29 at clinique.ca and $25 at clinique.com). Available now, the collection includes a matching Superbalm Moisturizing Gloss, Quickliner for Eyes Intense and nail colour. *covet*

Is now a good time to confess I've never worn Black Honey? That's about to change.
