Chubby Sticks by Clinique

Clinique will soon be launching their newest Chubby Sticks Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm (what a mouthful!) which they claim to be a combination of a lip balm with a hint of colour. Not a very unique concept I have to say but I really like the way they have been packaged into handy crayon like sticks.

Infused with decadent butters, oils and anti oxidents they sure sound hyrdating. As for the colour pay off, we will have to judge once they are released. 

Loving the promo image!

They will be available to purchase in 8 shades namely,
  • Chunky Cherry
  • Richer Raisin
  • Super Strawberry
  • Whole Lotta Honey
  • Woppin’ Watermelon
  • Fuller Fig
  • Graped-up
  • Mega Melon




Is it me or are the shades too reminiscent of Autumn/Winter? I mean that is the last thing we want to be reminded of. They could have got away with adding a few more brighter and lighter shades to compliment the coming season. 

Having said that, two shades have caught my eye namely Chunky Cherry and Whopping Watermelon. Aren't they super pretty and summer-like?



For £13.50 I think I will be giving at least one a try. 

Does any shade tickle your fancy?

I am liking my colour a bit more opaque at the moment but I am def going to check out the pink one as it looks lovely, as you say probably the most Spring like of the colours. x

Sami said...

These look so tempting! I tried one out and found the pigmentation isn't great - it's more of a sheer stain... so could be great for summer x

@Sami - Oh really? Gota check it out soon. I guess its how cute they look that's tempting me :P

I have Woppin' Watermelon, and I love it! The chubby sticks are not suppose to be super pigmented like a lipstick, which is where I think people feel ripped off. They are just suppose to be like tinted balms - and they do that very well! If you are expecting full on lipstick coverage from this product, you will be disappointed. If you are more in the market for a tinted balm with shine, these will probably suit your fancy.

@Candice - I like lip tints better than full on lipsticks on a daily basis so am guessing I will like this :)

I keep stalking the Clinique counter in HOF Nottingham just in case these come in early! Not sure which one I'm lemming over yet I think I need to swatch them first.

Val said...

They look lovely, I'll probably end up trying one out but I wish they were less expensive! Oh well.

I'd definitely want to get one of these, love the packaging - minimal bacteria spread for a balm is always a hit!

Hussy said...

That is really cute packaging. Too bad I don't really like wearing tinted lip balms...they don't really show up well on my lips which are a little on the darker side. =/
