Clinique Chubby Stick - Super Strawberry

On my recent holiday, I did a quick sweep of the duty free and picked up one of Clinique's Chubby Sticks, although not in one of their newer shades (choice was limited) I did pick it up in Super Strawberry which is a deep pink/cranberry shade.

Chubby Sticks aren't like lipsticks, they are essentially a tinted lipbalm but perhaps with a bit more coverage, akin to Revlon Lipbutters.

The colour range is fabulous, now with 16 shades and I am sorely tempted to buy Mighty Mimosa or Curvy Candy, both I've swatched on the back of my hand, I'm not too sure how they would actually show up on my lips.

One thing I like about the Chubby Stick is that I can apply it without having to use a mirror, application doesn't have to be too precise, so at work it is perfect as I can apply it without sitting at my desk staring in a little mirror. These are definitely good for a low maintenance day look!

Apologies for the bad photo. 

Due to this being more of a balm, you don't really need to worry about dry lips, and it is very moisturising. If I'm honest I'm not entirely sure that it merits the £16 price tag but given that it is a good quality product, it doesn't feel waxy, it feels moisturising and doesn't have a strange scent, it has a slight rose scent to it if anything!

If you can afford it, I would recommend giving them a go.

  1. HEY! i have that same shade :)
    i don't wear it often, though. for whatever reason i just really don't like wearing color on my lips. i think i'm conscientious that some of it is going to get on my teeth. ewww.


    1. I think because this is more of a balm though there's a lesser chance of that happening :)

  2. This is a pretty colour, i haven't tried these yet. I wanted to try out the Revlon Lipstains first, to buy the more expensive ones if i like them. x
