7 Best Clinique Black Honey Dupes

Hello my beautiful babes, how are you all doing today?

You must be excited to read about the dupe I have today. Because, let us face it, we all love Clinique Almost Lipstick in the shade Black Honey!

It is one of my favorites- I have been quite literally obsessed with it! I love how juicy and delicious fall shade it is. But I also enjoy the fact that I can wear it throughout the year regardless of the season!

For those of you who do not know, Clinique Black Honey is a lipstick. But it applies very sheer, almost like a lip balm. It translates to a light wash of a deep berry shade, but is also a plum on some people.

If you are a fan of the other tinted lip balm in Pink Honey, I love that too! So without wasting any more of your time, let us see the Clinique Black Honey dupes!

7 Best Clinique Black Honey Dupes

01# REVLON Colorburst Lip Butter

  • Shade: Fig Jam
  • Key Benefits: Nice Gel Formula; Hydrating

For the iconic shade Black Honey shade, there is no other that comes this close. The others are very similar, but this is on another level. I myself cannot distinguish between the two.

This lipstick by Revlon also feels like a lipbalm. We know a lip product by Revlon is sure to perform amazingly, and it does! This has a rich color pay-off and looks very similar to Clinique Black Honey.

You can pair it with a lip liner if you like. This is such a universally flattering shade, it looks great on everyone.

02# Neutrogena Moisture Smooth Color Stick for Lips

  • Shade: Rich Raisin
  • Key Benefits: Contains Shea Butter; Soothing

For a smoothing and pigmented effect, this is a great Clinique Black Honey dupe.

The Clinique lipstick allows a buildable lip color. But with this, you can achieve a more pigmented color easily. You can also blot it with tissue paper to make it look like a lip stain. Like Clinique Black Honey, this too flatters every skin tone.

And do you notice how this resembles the Clinique Chubby Stick? You can achieve a bold lip look by layering it and adding a dark lip liner. I personally really enjoy ombre looks! Such a versatile beauty product!

03# Burt’s Bees 100% Natural Tinted Lip Balm

  • Shade: Red Dahlia
  • Key Benefits: Hydrating and Soothing

Burt’s Bees is one of my favorite brands! And their lipbalm, of course, is a favorite. So when I found out that it is a dupe for Clinique Black Honey, I was elated!

On days that I do not want a matte makeup, or a gloss, this is my go-to. I can get my hair done, put on nail polish and be all fancy, But on my natural days, a little blush and this is what I love the most.

I am sure you too will enjoy its nourishing and soothing formula! A lip look with this should look lovely on any skin tone! This is more than just a chapstick!

04# REVLON Colorburst Lip Butter

  • Shade: Pink Truffle
  • Key Benefits: Nice Gel Formula; Hydrating

I have already talked about this lipstick so I will not drag it. This shade, Pink Truffle, is also a Clinique Black Honey dupe. Why? Let me tell you!

If you enjoy Black Honey but want a bit toned down version of it, this is the perfect dupe. It will give you a lip color that is a lot like Black Honey. And this formula is just so easy to wear and nourishing, it feels like skin care.

Revlon Lip Butter just tops the list always when it comes to Black Honey dupes. This also will be nude lipstick if you add a sheer layer. Then go in with some gloss with shimmer to transform from day to night!

05# Neutrogena Revitalizing and Moisturizing Tinted Lip Balm with SPF 20

  • Shade: Fresh Plum
  • Key Benefits: Moisturizing; Has SPF 20

Clinique’s Black Honey does not have a matte finish. So it is obvious that the dupes will not have a matte finish as well.

That being said, I can guess that any lip balm lover will enjoy this article! If you are one of those, then you too will love this lip balm. It is so, so moisturizing. And the colour Fresh Plum is a Clinique Almost Lipstick Black Honey dupe!

If you own the Clinique Black Honey eyeshadow, pair that with this balm! It will bring more attention to your eyes while still keeping a natural makeup look.

06# MELIXIR Vegan Lip Butter

  • Shade: Lust Red
  • Key Benefits: Creamy; Does not Feel Sticky

Another tinted lip balm to pick over a matte lipstick. This lip butter has a nice, creamy formula that does not feel sticky at all. It is also vegan for those who want a vegan lip product! This is not only a dupe for Clinique Almost Lipstick Black Honey, but more!

When I feel lazy, I just brush my hair, put this on, add some concealer and brush. That just finishes my complete look. I really like it!

So do give this a try and see if it works for you as a Clinique Black Honey dupe.

07# Physicians Formula Organic Wear Tinted Lip Treatment

  • Shade: Lust Red
  • Key Benefits: Nourishing and Hydrating

This is a Clinique Black Honey dupe that is super nourishing! Shea butter, Vitamin E, Jojoba Oil- you name it, this has it all!

So how is it similar to Black Honey? This has a more red undertone, but feels just the same as Clinique Black Honey. So if you want to skip on your red lipstick, this is your pick! And if you want to mattify it, just dab some powder on top.

Now do you see what I mean? This is a good dupe in terms of the formula, if not entirely for the colour!
