THE SOCIAL media beauty community is going crazy for a dupe of Clinique's iconic Black Honey lipstick – which retails for more than £17 less.

It's one of the most talked-about make-up products of the season and the internet phenomenon that's gone viral on social media – the Black Honey lipstick by the cult-favourite brand, Clinique.


We've seen the product all over on Instagram and TikTok, with influencers and beauty lovers alike rocking the dark yet sheer lippy.

But whilst it's become a staple for many, the lipstick, which blackened-red tones suit virtually every skin colour, is certainly not afforable.

Less than 2g of the viral product retail for more than £23.30 on the brand's website, making it quite an expensive must-have staple.

Luckily, fans of the lippy have found a dupe, which not only looks just as stunning, but also won't rob your bank account.
