When I first saw swatches of the Chubby Sticks in the blogsphere I knew I had to pick some up...it just took a while. Here is some more information on the Chubby Sticks from Clinique,
'Super-nourishing balm is loaded with mango and shea butters. Just what dry, delicate lips need to feel comfortably soft and smooth. Eight mouth watering lip tints in all, each with a subtle sheen.'
These are available in 8 shades Richer Raisin, Whole Lotta Honey, Fuller Fig, Mega Melon, Chunky Cherry, Whoppin' Watermelon, Super Strawberry and Mega Melon.
These are a lip balms in a form of a twist up pencil, and they are suppose to be moisturising once on the lips. The texture is great, its solid in the pencil but glides on like a gloss. For a tinted lip balm these are also very well pigmented. I expected it to be more moisturising on the lips, especially as as they are described as Moisturising. But it does give a nice dewy finish and you can build up the colour well.
On to the swatches, we have Mega Melon (L) an orangey pink and Whoppin' Watermelon (R) and light pink.
Then on the lips first is Whoppin' Watermelon,
Then Mega Melon.
Clinique Chubby sticks are £16.00 for 3g, this is expensive considering you could called them a glorified tinted lip balm. Now I love a lip balm and especially a tinted one, but maybe these are a bit steep for the price. But there are two major plus sides, firstly they are very pigmented and secondly they don't have a scent which I know lots of you would prefer.
These are great everyday lip colours but maybe a bit on the expensive side, have you tried any of the Chubby sticks?
