Clinique Chubby Sticks, how I love thee. I love thee with thy greatest love…
Okay stop. I’m not a poet. I was just illustrating on how much I love Clinique Chubby Sticks!
It just has to be the best invention in the lip color world! I’ve been whining far too long about lip products that give out great color, but are drying on the lips. Oh, my lips can be chapped at times, and it just shows, specially when you apply color on them!
Clinique invented such a great lip product and truly listened to its consumers. It fulfilled all my fantasies of a perfect lip product :
* Natural, luscious-looking lip color
Okay, I do have those moods when I only wear really basic makeup, and I’d love to pull off that natural look. Clinique Chubby Sticks give you that your lips-but-better look!
* Good moisture on the lips. The comfort, the comfort!
Yes, I’ve experienced those days when my lips feel so tight and uncomfortable. Reasons can range from being sick ( yes, lips seem to be drier that time ), during summer, or when I’m exposed to the A/C for quite a while. I sometimes feel so lazy to apply lip balm, and yeah, that’s partly, or almost all my fault!
With Clinique Chubby Sticks, I don’t need to wear lipbalm before applying it, fearing my lips would look insanely dry and flake with overly pigmented lipsticks ( that I love, somehow! haha ! ). This just moisturizes my lips, eases my tight lips and gives it comfort, and gives it natural, beautiful color it deserves. I got to convince alot of friends who weren’t really into makeup to get this because it was their idea of a perfect lip color – just beautifully natural! Isn’t that wonderful? I feel so achieved when someone listens to what I have to recommend. Truly. Hahaha!
BUT. BUT! Things just got a little bit more intense! Clinique Chubby Sticks are now available in a more, pigmented formula called Clinique Chubby Sticks Intense. Yes, intense! My favorite lip crayons have way more pigment than its sheerer sister, the normal Clinique Chubby Sticks, and we can now have really pigmented lips and having well-moisturized lips at the same time!
Tadah!!! Clinique once again has ears, and know how to listen to its consumers! Clinique KNEW that aside from natural-looking beautifully tinted lips, some girls want some color. Yes, vivid color. But they want the same soft lips achieved by Clinique Chubby Sticks. So they went intense. Woot!
Now, don’t you think this is intense?
Not everyday that I wear red, don’t you think? This is Mightiest Maraschino. It’s a beautiful, beautiful cherry red shade that just captivated my heart! It’s just so beautiful, that I found myself wearing this more often than my regular lipsticks. Just had to skip blush and use bronzer instead for this one!
I’d love to get more shades of the Clinique Chubby Sticks Intense - and I am eyeing at all 8 shades from the collection! Haha! The price point in the Philippines is not bad, it’s 920 PhP. It’s less expensive than luxury brand lipsticks out there, so I think I’m pretty sold here!
Just one tip for using Clinique Chubby Sticks Intense - even if they’re really pigmented, they won’t bleed on your lips at all, but just remember to have a lip brush nearby as it is best to apply the darker shades using lip brush – the crayon isn’t exactly angled to give you precise lines to “draw” your lip if you wish! But what I do is that I have my trusty concealer pen and just lightly line around the edges to make the application flawless.
Oh, Clinique Chubby Sticks Intense, I think I’m falling for you!
