Clinique Chubby Stick Intense: Curviest Caramel, Plushest Punch, Chunkiest Chilli

Judging by the amount of imitators currently on the market, Clinique's Chubby Sticks have been one of the most successful product launches of all time.  A balm consistency, with a hint of pigment, Chubby Sticks are perfect for this "can't be bothered thinking about my makeup" days, and I have a selection of the shades.  They're easy to wear, and comfortable, and there's a big enough range of shades to suit almost everyone.

Sometimes, however, you want a bit more ... well, bang for your buck.  Well, certainly it has to be admitted that £16 is rather expensive for a lip balm with a hint of a tint.  This month Clinique launch Chubby Stick Intense for those of us who like a bit more pigment with our balms.  I've got three shades to show you:

From left to right, we have Curviest Caramel, Plushest Punch and Chunkiest Chilli (which has to win prizes for the worst named lip product, ever).  Caramel is a nude, Punch is a bright pink, and Chilli is a red-brown.

They are actually surprisingly pigmented, and they haven't sacrificed too much of their conditioning properties to bring you the colour, either, which is nice.  Lasting time is about average, a couple of hours, but they don't feel either greasy or sticky, and they don't dry your lips out.  You can mix them into new shades too, I find a combination of Punch and Chilli makes a nice bright red, and you know how I like my reds ...

Do you think you'll be picking any of the new Chubby Sticks up?  They're bringing out a version for eyes in the spring, and I can't wait ... 

The Fine Print: PR Samples. Is it just me, or does Chunkiest Chilli sound .... pre-digested?

  1. They are very pigmented indeed! I haven't personally tried them but have heard many raves about it. If you want lip tints that also offer hydration, you should try out ILIA Beauty's lip conditioners, they are amazing!!! The colour pay-off is really good given that it is an organic line but do use a v.small amount of synthetic colour to get a pigmentation that lasts.

    love your blog!

  2. I love Chubby sticks, because I am a person who doesn't like to think too much about makeup, and these are just lovely.

  3. The names make my toes curl. But I'm interested in Mightiest Maraschino. Just hope I don't cringe too much at the counter, asking for such a silly name.

  4. I can't wait for these to arrive in Canada. I'll be one of the first to buy!

    LOL @ Chunkiest Chilli. EW EW EW

  5. It sounds like it would be worth trying these, but when they look confusingly like my kids jumbo no-mess paint sticks, I'm scared I'd accidentally apply the kids stuff instead! Hehe!

  6. It sounds like these would be good to try, but when they look confusingly like my kids' no-mess paint sticks, I'd be worried I'd apply theirs by mistake!


Thanks, I love hearing from you!
