If you've read my past FOTD posts then you will see a regular pattern... I only wear a nude or pink lip and not even a bright pink at that, I never wear any bold colours and don't even get me started on berry lip! It's not that I haven't tried them because I have, I just never thought that they suited me and so have always stayed well clear.  Recently my Grandee received some free Clinique samples and after realising she already had an abundance of their products she passed some on to me, one of them being a berry lip.  Here's my chance I thought, so I gave it a go and you know what I don't hate it.  Now don't get me wrong it is definitely not a dark berry, maybe we will get to that stage but baby steps at the moment,  but it is completely different colour to what I normally rock and it doesn't look half bad! The product that I used is Clinique Almost Lipstick 'Black Honey' and is a hybrid lipstick/ gloss, it applies like an absolute dream, no tugging on the lips and is rather moisturising.  In the bullet it looks incredibly scary and dark but I did find the colour quite sheer and I did have to coat it on to get enough colour pay off but for a berry lip novice such as myself it was perfect.  As I wanted my lips to be the main focus I did my eyes quite neutral, opting for a golden shimmer and a flick of eyeliner.

Full list of products used:

What do you think of this look? Are you a berry lip novice like myself?
