I personally am a humongous fan of the Chubby Stick Lip Balm as I cannot wear lipstick on a daily basis (or ever as they make my lips peel and crack) and these give an instant shot of colour to the lips with a yummy gloss like effect. Voluptious Violet is my go to colour and a must-have! Hence I was very excited to see how its siblings would look like and here are all the 12 shades in their full glory.
The consistency of these is velvety soft and buttery, not so much that they would slide off the lids and crease but soft enough not to drag on the lids or cause tugging. Just a light swipe and they instantly transfer pigment which is a great sign as you'll get good use out of it.
Most of them have a slightly iridescent finish to them and some come with a shot of finely milled glitter in them. I personally liked the look of the neutral, muted ones without the glitter. There's a rose gold one I have my eyes on so bad as it could double up as a cheek highlighter as well.
As I said, I'll be purchasing at least two staple shades when they release on 15th February as they seem to be a perfect handbag, travel friendly product and particularly useful for the hot summers when I dread powdery eye shadow.
However, I do feel they did not get me as excited as the Chubby Stick for the Lips (hello bright orange and vampy purple!) only because the colour range here was a little drab, been-there-done-that for me. For instance the blue, green and purple shades could have been pastels and more on-trend.
Anyhow, still great for the girl on the go. Do you like the look of any shades in particular?
