our cult beauty favorite goes double or nothing.

If you wanted to be sexy in high school - and were terrified of being sexy at the same time - you probably had Clinique Black Honey. The shade of "Almost Lipstick" was deep enough to reveal a budding vamp, but sheer enough that your reputation (or at least your later-than-usual curfew) stayed in tact.

Now the lipstick is still around, and still fantastic, but it's got a little more depth to it.  This summer, Clinique releases a dual-tip lipstick pen devoted to the juicy shade.  It's half gloss in SPF 15, and half of the original lipstick formula.

Wear them layered on top of each other, and you'll get the fully realized, luscious hue.  After all, you're a little bit more grown up now - you can take it.

Clinique Almost Lipstick and Lip Gloss in Black Honey, $21 for both.
