The iconic Clinique lipstick is $22 at Target and Ulta — which can be a bit steep. We’ve seen it go on sale for as much as 30% off on the Clinique site (if it’s in stock, that is).

Black Honey has been a staple for decades but is having a resurgence in popularity thanks to TikTok. It’s sheer, moisturizing, natural-looking, and flattering on a variety of skin tones. So of course, lipstick fanatics have been going nuts for the product leading to it being sold out many times. Luckily, with great popularity comes great dupes.

We did our homework and found the best Clinique Black Honey dupes, from tinted lip balms to super hydrating lipsticks starting at just $3.99. Whether you’re looking for an option for when the OG is sold out or simply a more affordable lippy, we found something for everyone. You’ll be sporting that perfect pout in no time.

Our Fave Clinique Black Honey Dupes

1. CoverGirl Clean Fresh Lip Tint in Bliss You Berry

For that buildable color we love, consider this tinted lip balm ($4.99, Target). It’s also got the beloved skincare ingredient hyaluronic acid to bring some serious moisture. We recommend the shade Bliss You Berry, but folks with more fair complexions might want to try Cherry-ish You.

2. Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm in Daisy

The iconic lip balm brand has done it again with this sheer lippie ($4.99, Burt’s Bees). The product boasts 8-hour moisture with ingredients like shea butter and botanical waxes. We recommend buying directly from the Burt’s Bees site, but you can also get it at Ulta for $0.50 more, though they only carry four shades instead of eight. No matter where you shop, these babies sell out fast, so be sure to sign up for email notifications about restocks.


3. e.l.f. Hydrating Core Lip Shine in Ecstatic

For a 2-in-1 lipstick and lip balm, check out this product ($7, Ulta). And if you’re all about the aesthetic, it has a core of vitamin E-rich moisturizer that’s shaped like a heart. The coverage is sheer but still buildable. If you’re an Ultamate Rewards member, you can earn points on this purchase.


4. L’Oreal Paris Glow Paradise Balm-in-Lipstick in Ecstatic Mullberry

Looking for a more natural look? How about this balm/lipstick combo ($7.99, Target). This sheer, moisturizing lippie is made with pomegranate extract for a nourishing shine. Use your Target RedCard to save an extra 5%.


5. Wet n Wild Perfect Pout Lip Color in 99% Chance Of Wine

In terms of price, there’s no better option than this lip color ($8.85, Amazon). It’s made with multiple oils, including sunflower seed oil and macadamia nut oil, for that smooth finish we love about the Clinique OG. With an overall rating of 4.6 stars for a less than $9 product, it’s the best budget option. We’ve seen it go on sale for just $4 or $0.99, but that was before this started running low on inventory. Still, keep an eye out for discounts.


6. Honest Beauty Tinted Lip Balm in Plum Drop

If you subscribe and save, you can save up to 15% each time you order this lip balm ($8.99, Amazon). It’s also part of another deal where you can save 5% when you buy four.


7. Ulta Beauty Gloss Stick in Buggin

This lip product ($10, Ulta) plays on the ’90s vibe of the Clinique classic but with a twist. It’s not just a lip product but also a blush stick. It has a lightweight feel with medium coverage for color that still looks natural. For a limited time, you can get one free when you buy two.

8. Undone Beauty Light on Lip Reflecting, Amplifying Lipstick in Berry Glow

Our personal favorite Clinique Black Honey dupe is this sheer lipstick ($10, Amazon). The color is incredibly similar, as is the buildable coverage. The formula includes the proven moisturizing ingredients aloe vera and coconut oil. And for less than half the price of the OG? Amazing.


9. Clinique Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm in Richer Raisin

Yes, Clinique has another lip product that shares a shade almost identical to Black Honey. Reviewers like that this lip balm ($17.99, Amazon) is ultra-moisturizing and not too sticky.


10. Glossier Ultra Lip in Ember

While this option ($18, Glossier) is a little pricier, it makes sense when you consider it has a 4.4-star rating across over 1,000 reviews. It’s a high-shine lip balm that promises improved softness through a blend of multiple seed oils and their proprietary “4HA” hyaluronic acid. It’s sheer but also has good buildability so you can get just the right color.
