Clinique Chubby Stick in Heftiest Hibiscus
It's been a while since I've been so excited by a lip colour that I didn't wait to photograph it before trying it out. I'd wanted a Clinique Chubby Stick in my collection since they launched, but I always found the colours slightly too light and watery.
On a recent visit to Bicester Village I was swatching some lip colours when I came across the Clinique Chubby Stick Intense range. After trying out the heftiest Hibiscus shade on my hand, I knew I had to have it. At £11.25 I found it reasonable for a product of this type, more so than I have with a few frivolous purchases recently.
On application, the formula is intensely moisturising, rich and creamy as well as being highly pigmented. This stick is packed full of mango and shea butters, so the smoothing qualities will do wondrous things to your lips. For something touted as a 'lip balm', the colour pay off is huge which came as a pleasant surprise and the bold cherry colour transfers so easily while lasting longer than any lip balm I've ever tried. I'm not entirely sure if this is down to the red staining the lips or some other magical Clinique secret, but I'm converted!
Have you got a Clinique Chubby Stick in your makeup drawer?
