When TikTok caught wind of Clinique’s Almost Lipstick in Black Honey, the sheer tinted balm that ’90s babies had been obsessed with for years, it sold out almost instantly. Next, the platform’s beauty democratizers did what they did best: shared the industry’s best dupes. (Cue the “duuuuupe” intonation here.)
Without further ado, these are the very best Black Honey dupes, all for sale at the fraction of the price. The only issue? They’re often sold out, just like the OG version.
