get a shot of sexpot, for cheap.

Of all the cult beauty items in our makeup case, Clinique Almost Lipstick in Black Honey might be the most useful.  It looks amazing on every skin tone.  It can double as a blush or eyeshadow (especially as we move into the rosy, glossy lids seen on Marc Jacobs' 2011 runway).  And it's just subtle enough to be sexy during daylight.

Now Sephora has a deal to keep you stocked with the stuff for at least six months.  They've got a Black Honey three-pack, with the full-sized shade in Almost Lipstick, Moisturizing Gloss, and Gel Blush.  It retails for $25 and is only available through Christmas - fortunately though, the shade will be trendy for way longer.  Like, forever.
