I went down to the Clinique Head Office last week for their launch, which featured a cute little candy shop and teeny milkshakes from bottles... and got to play with all 12 shades of the new Chubby Sticks.
I was given 2 to take away with me - was complete luck of the drawer as to which 2 that would be - I ended up with Portly Plum and Big Blue.
Neither of these are shades I would have picked out - my initial reaction would be to go for the neutral and bronzey shades (Whopping Willow Fuller Fudge and Ample Amber in particular, I'm talking to you!) which, with about 5 different tones, are just gorgeous. However, I seem to be having a little affair with purples at the moment, so was pleased I got to try out Portly Plum. It is a dusky purple with a hint of pinky purpley iridescence. Big Blue reminds me of the colour of Cinderella's dress - it's a very pale blue with an almost frosty finish, with pale blue iridescence.
The full range of colours is Bountiful Beige, Lots O'Latte, Fuller Fudge, Ample Amber, Whopping Willow, Portly Plum, Pink & Plenty, Curvaceous Coal, Lavish Lilac, Big Blue, Mighty Moss and Massive Midnight. I swatched all of the 12 shades at the event....
There are some lovely ones there aren't there?!
They launch on 15th February at Clinique Counters nationwide, and www.clinique.co.uk priced at £16
