Guess what, girls?

Remember my review from months ago, the one about a nifty little product called Clinique Almost Lipstick SPF15 in Black Honey? Here’s a visual aid to jog that memory 🙂

In my review, I mentioned that the Almost Lipstick range was not available in Malaysia or Singapore at time of writing. A few months later, dom mentioned to me that a friend of hers in Singapore had managed to get her hands on Almost Lipstick in Black Honey at a local counter. I was intrigued and hopeful, and it turns out none of it was in vain.

Three cheers for Clinique listening to us Asian consumers – they have finally brought the wonderfully sheer, super-wearable Almost Lipstick range to Malaysia and Singapore, as part of Clinique’s glorious Spring 2012 collection! Thank you Lisa of So Loverly for snooping about and verifying the happy news 🙂

Six new shades are available for us Malaysians and Singaporeans, namely Tender Honey, Luscious Honey, Lovely Honey, Shy Honey, Spicy Honey and Chic Honey. Another new shade called Flirty Honey is not available in Malaysia, and sadly, neither is the original Black Honey. However, if you’re hankering after Black Honey, Singapore does stock the shade 😉

They cost MYR 66.00 apiece in Malaysia and SGD 33.00 in Singapore. Both are a hefty markup from the hyper-affordable USD 15.00 that it retails for in the States, but sometimes a girl’s got to shut one eye and bite the proverbial bullet when it comes to such an iconic and versatile product! Psst, after conversion, Malaysia sells ’em for about SGD 5.00 cheaper than Singapore 😉

My favourite shade of the six we have here was Shy Honey, which looks a cheerful, neutralish pink in the tube but swipes a gorgeous shade of soft, shimmery almost violet-pink on my lips. I have a sinking feeling that resistance will be futile here. Watch this space for a review.

To whet your appetites for the moment, here’s a look at the shades:

If you’re after more information, check out the Clinique Almost Lipstick webpage – but as the Almost Lipstick range swatches so differently on every woman, best head down to your nearest counter and swipe away 🙂 And why not leave us a comment to let us know how you liked them afterward? 🙂 Go on, you know you want to!

  1. I’m so excited for you guys! I have the original Black Honey, but I got mine on a trip to the US, so I was lucky enough not to have to pay RRP for it (AU$36).

    • Hi Olgie 🙂 We’re excited too! The original Black Honey is just a classic, so good to have in a purse. Had no idea it cost that much in Australia though, jeepers! We wish the markups were less ridiculous.

    • Haha hey Bee! We need to meet up soon 🙂 And yes, hm hm hm… 😛 I’m not going to encourage you to buy, because these lippies speak for themselves, really 😛

    • Hey Emi! They are quite lovely indeed. Let us know what you think and which ones you like best once you’ve given them a try 🙂

  2. Thanks for the heads up! I was looking forward to giving Black Honey a go but seeing it’s not available on our shores… Maybe I need to make a long overdue trip down south! =D

    • Hey Sukie, cheers for dropping in! You’re most welcome, nice to see there’s a groundswell of excitement about the Almost Lipstick range – we are not alone! 🙂
