Clinique Chubby Sticks Shadow Tint for Eyes: Massive Midnight & Mighty Moss



If you absolutely dread applying powder eye shadows with the fear of them looking cakey or if you have a shaky hand and are not very fond of blending and shading eye shadows like a pro, then these Chubby Sticks for the eyes by Clinique are a great alternative. Especially as Spring/Summer arrives, I know many people like keeping their eyes light and glossy and this would work perfectly for those looks.

I quite like the texture of these as they are light and glide on easily on the skin when in contact, unlike any other high street or perhaps even MAC ones you may have tried. I usually find eye shadow sticks to either tug and pull or crease like crazy due to their overtly waxy nature. These hit the middle ground somehow as the formula is just about perfect and adequately pigmented with very minimal creasing.

As I said before, I am not a huge fan of the colour range they have brought out as it lacks innovation but the two I have is 'Mighty Moss' a golden olive green and 'Massive Midnight' a rich navy midnight blue, both superb for creating a simple smoky eye or a fresh spring look in less than a minute.

I like the idea of these but I don't think I would be brave ennough to wear them in these colours. x

I'm a huge fan of the Laura Mercier caviar sticks, they're absolutely amazing and I always always get asked what eye shadow I'm wearing. These looks amazing too and can't wait to go get a few colours to try.

Massive Midnight is so gorgeous! It would make for a lovely base for a deep navy smokey eye look :)

@Nancy - I had no idea LM did similar sticks. Need to check them out!

@Alina - Cannot agree more :)

I am not confident to wear those colours, however it would be interesting to try:)

These are gorgeous -- sometimes my MAC shadows in Deep Truth and Humid need help, these would be perfect as a base!

@The Procrastinator - Oh yes, would be great paired with them!

I loved the LM ones so much I bought one in every colour, they are waterproof, last all day and blend well with other shadows using fingers or brush.

I really, really want these and other shades from these too. Wonder when they will come to India.

Katy said...

Oooh, those two are gorgeous!

These two shades look gorgeous. Seriously. And the texture looks good, too. Okay, now I'm looking forward to seeing these products in stores :)

This seems to have great reviews on Sephora so I just purchase Massive Midnight. Really excited to see how it performs.
