Clinique Chubby Sticks

I am a huge fan of lipsticks and lipglosses and I had been hearing for what seems like forever that Clinique were releasing a moisturing lipbalm that was meant to be phenomenal.

The lovely people at Clinique must have heard my feeble whimpers because a while ago I was sent a Chubby Stick to try out.

Now personally, I HATE reading reviews about products which make me NEEEEEEEED it but then at the bottom of the page I'm told it won't be released for another three months so I have held off with the review until now as these sticks have been released.

TODAY.

and if you have a Clinique counter near you I suggest you hotfoot it down there and get one today.

(I am really resisting the urge to add the term Chubby chaser into this review)

Perfect for spring and summer when you want just a hint of colour these sticks are extremely moisturising and will help keep your lips in tip top condition.



The Chubby stick in all its glory.





I was pleasantly surprised that it wasn't actually a wooden pencil and there is no need for sharpening as you just screw it up from the other end.



The obligitory hand swatch. As you can see it is quite a sheer colour and I have heard people say that it isn't a deep enough colour for them, but for me it is perfect. a great compromise between a lipstick and a lipgloss.


This is shade 01, Richer Raisin



Priced at £13.50 this is one of eight different fruity shades available.

You can choose from Graped up, Mega Melon, Whooping Watermelon, Berry Burst, Whole lotta Honey and Blackberry and currently they are 3 for 2 on the Boots website.


Personally I love these. they aren't sticky or tacky and give a sheer warm colour that is just right for those barely there days.


Go be a Chubby Chaser (Ha) and purchase your lipbalm from a Clinique counter near you from TODAY.

  2. I really want to try these too, I find lippy is sometimes a bit much in spring summer but I hate getting my hair all stuck to lipgloss.

  5. Hi Zoe, yes definitely worth the price.

    I'd pay it and i'm a tight cow :-)

    I am going to buy some more of these over the weekend. Want a pink one for hot lazy summer days.

    Lucy, I did the hair/Lips stick test and although there was one or two strands that stuck it was a LOT less than a usual lipgloss.
    and NO tackiness at all.
