In the age of 10,000 renaissances (See: mullets, shags, Twilight, and streaky highlights), here’s one most of my pals in the beauty world weren’t expecting: Clinique’s lipstick in Black Honey. It’s a phenomenal product on so many fronts: It’s creamy, has a gorgeous sheen, works on every skin tone, and makes it look like you just ate a whole bag of cherries. But for you guys to make it sell out everywhere? That’s a twist. And who do we have to thank for the viral sensation? None other than TikTok Lord of the Rings superfan who discovered that Liv Tyler wore the lipstick in the movies. Cue millions upon millions flying to beauty stores trying to get their hands on one.

No brag, but I used this particular shade back in the day when it was available pretty much everywhere, so the idea that now I’m fighting against 12 year-olds on TikTok to get my hands on one irks me. But while we’re patiently awaiting a restock, let me just share some insight that comes with age: As good as the product is, there are dupes that will make you feel silly for putting your name down on a mile-long waiting list. Below, find the best Black Honey dupes that will make all your TikTok famous friends sad they didn’t snag one when they had the chance.
