black honey looks intimidating in photos and in tube. But when applied, it's a nice brownish-berry color that is flattering on most women I've seen try it. It's very pretty but not too bright or too light.

I absolutely LOVE Black Honey. It's the first color I tried. But, now that I love it so much, I am more inclined to try out others too. Typically, I wear pinks and peachy tones, as I'm light-medium skin tone. Black Honey is deeper than my usual and it's great.

A salesperson suggested Currant when the store was out of my trusted Raspberry. And I love it so much, I have never gone back to Raspberry--the Currant is perfect on me. It's a darker pink then the raspberry and I find it's less bright and therefore more versatile. I can wear it all year long and from work to evenings out.

The Black Honey shade looks different on everyone. That's really one you just have to try out. I've never met a person who didn't like the Black Honey shade. Give it a try!

answer 3
I find this gloss only sticky when initially applied. Once it blends with the temperature of your lips, I find that it smoothens out. I don't usually apply it in front the mirror either, but I know that the color hint is so subtle (but effective) that it won't really smear and blend well :) I think it needs to be a little sticky in order to stay on well.

I also definitely second the vaseline comparison!

I don't find this gloss to be sticky at all. I've tried many, many brands and this one seems to be the least sticky of all of them. Plus, the gloss really does add a little extra color to your lips, unlike many glosses that claim to do that and just look clear once you apply it.

The gloss is a gloss, but is not sticky like most lip glosses (when you turn your head, your hair will not stick on your lips). I would compare it to Vaseline Intensive Care for your lips as far as sheen (yes) and stickiness (not much)

There are about 14 different shades of this product ranging from clear to Black Honey. I would think the Root Beer shade could work for you as it is in the same shade as your coloring. Can you go to a store to test out the samples?

I have similar coloring to you--very fair with pink undertones, plenty of freckles, and green eyes (brown hair). I personally love the shade "Currant" (number 9). It looks dark in the tube but goes on a nice sheer deep pink with a little hint of berry color. My lip color but better. Also makes my teeth look whiter! Raspberry is also a great color on me--a much brighter pink. Very youthful and summery. All in all, you really can't go wrong with any of the shades--they all provide a hint of color and subtle sheen, but nothing overwhelming.

Color question
I have very fair skin and really dark brown hair and eyes. I usually play up my eyes, so I like to keep my lipcolor pretty natural looking. So, two questions: how sheer is this gloss? and what is a good natural pinkish color? And I'm interested in Black Honey, but I'm worried it will be too intense...I'm really into super natural looking lip shades. Any info you guys can give would be great!

I have fair skin with a hint of olive/yellow undertones with brown hair and brown eyes... I love the Black Honey color even though I also normally like natural colored glosses. It is a fun color, which is different than every thing else I have, and yet still looks like a more natural color. Think your lip color, with a sheer berry color. You can also add more or less of the gloss to customize the shade.

Black Honey gloss may be a bit bold for you. Try Tarina Tarantino Gem Gloss in Bobby Pin. Downside: It has a scent/flavor. But, it's a very attractive neutral color for fair-skin. I'm 37, light-skinned, brown hair, blue eyes - a bit different from you but still want to make the recommendation.

The ginger is much darker than the apricot. The ginger I would consider a mauve pink. The apricot is a pretty light pink. They are both pretty colors but I bought the ginger thinking it was going to be more like the apricot.

Apricot is barely a peachy shade. It's so sheer. Ginger, however, is sheer with a hint of a brown-pink tint. It's actually my favorite.

Raspberry would probably be great for you. I have similar coloring, and I love the Raspberry. It's not too bright; it gives a really natural look on most people. I also like the Black Honey. It looks really dark in the tube, but once you get it on it's not THAT dark. I'm very fair-skinned, especially in the winter but I can still wear that color and not look washed out.

None of the Superbalms are flavored. I love them though, because they add that nice hint of color without being too overdone, and they aren't sticky like a lot of lip glosses are.

My coloring is very similar to yours (light skin, blue-ish eyes, brunette hair) and I love this in Apricot. It's very similar to a coral color (I love coral shades too) and it's great for everyday wear. The texture is great too and the color payoff is surprisingly good-- don't even look at the color on the computer, in person it is WAY different (definitely not as sheer OR light pink). It's really pretty, I think it would look great on you!
