Judging by the amount of imitators currently on the market, Clinique’s Chubby Sticks have been one of the most successful product launches of all time. A balm consistency, with a hint of pigment, Chubby Sticks are perfect for this “can’t be bothered thinking about my makeup” days, and I have a selection of the shades. They’re easy to wear, and comfortable, and there’s a big enough range of shades to suit almost everyone.
Sometimes, however, you want a bit more … well, bang for your buck. Well, certainly it has to be admitted that £16 is rather expensive for a lip balm with a hint of a tint. This month Clinique launch Chubby Stick Intense for those of us who like a bit more pigment with our balms. I’ve got three shades to show you:
From left to right, we have Curviest Caramel, Plushest Punch and Chunkiest Chilli (which has to win prizes for the worst named lip product, ever). Caramel is a nude, Punch is a bright pink, and Chilli is a red-brown.
They are actually surprisingly pigmented, and they haven’t sacrificed too much of their conditioning properties to bring you the colour, either, which is nice. Lasting time is about average, a couple of hours, but they don’t feel either greasy or sticky, and they don’t dry your lips out. You can mix them into new shades too, I find a combination of Punch and Chilli makes a nice bright red, and you know how I like my reds …
Do you think you’ll be picking any of the new Chubby Sticks up? They’re bringing out a version for eyes in the spring, and I can’t wait …
The Fine Print: PR Samples. Is it just me, or does Chunkiest Chilli sound …. pre-digested?
