Clinique Almost Lipstick in Black Honey, $17


“I've had at least one Clinique Almost Lipstick in Black Honey in my makeup bag since I was a teenager—it was likely the first lipstick I ever owned and at the time seemed like a grown-up upgrade from the Lip Smackers that came before it. Black Honey has been a constant in my fairly minimal beauty routine forever because it complements my complexion, makes me feel pretty and put together, and doesn't break the bank." -Jonna Gallo Weppler, Deputy Editor
