Clinique are introducing 8 new vibrant shades to their chubby stick family. If you are unfamiliar with the Clinique Chubby sticks they are a multi-tasking, moisturising colourful lip balm in a crayon form. I have always admired these from afar but never tried that for myself so i didnt really know what to expect.
Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm’s highly moisturising formula uses a special blend of decadent butters, oils and antioxidants to help protect and pamper lips with immediate and lasting moisturisation. Infused with Shea Butter, Mango Seed Butter and Jojoba Seed Oil, delivering a surge of moisture in a sleek stick leaving lips soft, supple and soothed.
I received two new shades from the range Mighty Mimosa* and Pudgy Peony*.
Mighty Mimosa is a pale, soft pink whereas Pudgy Peony is a darker, raspberry pink. Both are equally as gorgeous and dont think i could possibly choose a favourite. Although mighty mimosa would make a fab day time shade that would go with any look.
They apply so easily and as they are in crayon form, it is easy to follow the line of your lips and apply these accurately without any smudging. The first thing i noticed is how super moisturisng these feel on the lips without being sticky whatsoever and keep lips feeling soft. They really are a luscious lip balm that has a good hint of colour. The paler shade, mighty mimosa needed building up quite a bit more than the brighter shade, pudgy peony however they glide onto the lips with ease. I do feel like i will be reaching for the chubby sticks over lipsticks as they are just so easy to apply, give a lovely moisturising sheen and have a good colour pay off also.
I would highly recommend the Clinique chubby sticks to lipstick and lipgloss lovers alike. The colour pigmentation is definitely buildable and they feel lovely on the lips. These really have my lusting after more! This is a product i would have definitely bypassed before as i am more of a lipstick girl but i am going to look at the other colours in the range! Im after a baby pink or a coral!
The chubby sticks retail for £16.
The 8 new shades of the Clinique Chubby Sticks are available from the 1st June 2012 online and at Clinique Counters.
I am in love! What do you think? Do you like the look of them?
