On 1st June, Clinique introduced 8 new shades to their popular range of Chubby Sticks. I had heard great things about Chubby Sticks in the past - they are really hydrating for lips; containing Shea Butter, Mango Seed Butter and Jojoba Seed Oil - this is make up that is doing good for you while looking good for you!
I loved the look of Curvy Candy and Pudgy Peony - they are similar in colour but still quite different from each other,
Curvy Candy is my new love, I have been wearing it constantly for the past couple of weeks - it's a slightly coral toned pink which gives a nice natural flush of colour.
Pudgy Peony is still quite sheer, but much more powerful - a more definite fuchsia colour.
All the shades can be layered to create new shades too - they have a feature on their site where you can mix and match the colours and see the end result. I tried layering mine, but as they are quite similar colours there wasn't a massive difference in the shade. It's still nice to know that if I end up adding more Chubby Sticks to my collection it's something that can be done easily.
They are essentially, a coloured lip balm - the type of
finish they give is ideal for summer days when you don't want to wear
anything too heavy and they feel fantastic on the lips.
I love the packaging too - they are like a fat colouring pencil - you twist the end once your stick gets 'blunt'. I think these will be an essential in this summer's make up bag!
Chubby Sticks are available at Clinique counters and at www.clinique.co.uk for £16.
