Sponsored Video: Clinique Chubby Sticks

I’m not sure how true it is but apparently the Clinique Chubby stick craze has spread like wild fire globally, leading to one Chubby Stick being sold every 15 seconds! I have heard similar crazy things about YSL’s Touche Eclat and it’s amazing how this has caught on the same trend, considering that Clinique is considered pretty ‘high-street’ compared to the luxe YSL.

I have only tried Pudgy Peony till date, which is a cool toned, fuchsia pink. I personally feel this one’s the most flattering pink they have for the Summer, as it’s cool toned so it will not only brighten the teeth and sallow complexion but it’s much easier to pull off compared to other shades of pink and looks very much ‘in-trend’ due to its fun and chirpy colour.
Plus, if you’re planning to invest in one of these best-selling Clinique lippys, why not invest in a bold, vibrant shade that you would otherwise not wear if in the form of a full-on lipstick. Now that it’s summer and it’s perfect to experiment with brighter shades than usual, I have my eyes on two namely ‘Voluptuous Violet’ and ‘Heaping Hazelnut’. Both are a part of the brand new shades that have just joined the Chubby Stick army.

From swatches and reviews in the blogosphere, Voluptuous Violet seems like a wearable purple, edgy enough but not quite as vampy as the shade usually is in traditional lipsticks. Heaping Hazelnut on the other hand appears to be a sumptuous tawny brown that won’t make me appear like a corpse.

Regardless of who you ask, they are nicely hydrating, quite glossy and juicy looking on the lips, with a decent colour payoff that is buildable. For girls who cannot stand the feeling of lipsticks on the lips (no they do exist *both hands up*), this is a go-to product for all seasons, especially due to the variety of shades available.

@Neeraj - Oh really! I bet they must. They are so foolproof that it's hard not to like them.
