Clinique Chubby Stick Intense: Curviest Caramel, Plushest Punch, Chunkiest Chilli

By Get Lippie

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?
