Why The Clinique Chubby Sticks Are Really Great
The Clinique Chubby Sticks were pretty revolutionary when they were first released back in 2011. Since then there's been an onslaught of similar products both high end and on the high street, but there's just something about the original that keeps me wanting to add to my collection.
Of all of the stick/pencil products like this, the Clinique Chubby Sticks are my favourites to use by far. The original chubby sticks pack a punch of hydration alongside a touch of colour - enough to define and perfect the lips without looking too try hard. 'Super Strawberry' is probably my pick of the bunch, alongside the Baby Tint in 'Poppin' Poppy'. Admittedly I wasn't expecting much from the baby tints as the originals are already quite sheer, but it's turned out to be one of my most frequently reached for, everyday colours. Even if you're into a bolder lip, the Intense versions have you covered. Again, I really wasn't sure how much pigment they would have, but I was blown away when I swatched the shades for the first time. The colours are rich and vibrant, while keeping the high level of shine and hydration that the rest of the range offers.
