Rather wisely, Clinique has extended its Chubby Sticks range to introduce eight new gorgeous shades. Were the previous eight shades not enough? When a product is this fantastic, no, the more shades the better!
The promise? “A super-nourishing balm loaded with mango and shea butters. Just what dry, delicate lips need to feel comfortably soft and smooth. Sixteen natural-looking lip tints in all, each with a subtle sheen.”
The results? The stick applies quite like a soft crayon might, which is the best I can explain the texture. It comes with a handy twist feature at the bottom, ensuring the stick doesn’t break upon application and the presentation is totes sophisticated so this is definitely one for the handbag.
My worry was that some of shades might be too garish for daytime wear but the colour is subtle and lips are left kissably soft, with a slight gloss finish.
There really is a colour to suit everyone; from Muted Mauve and Voluptuous Violet, to Heaping Hazelnut and Oversized Orange. Don’t expect the product inside to match the size of the actual stick however, but thankfully the colour lasts a long time and you won’t be disappointed. Because ladies, as most of us know, size doesn’t always necessarily matter!
