The Clinique Chubby Stick moisturising lip colour balms were released last year and were extremely popular, there were numerous reviews on them and they were pretty much all positive. Personally, I really like Clinique, I haven't used a great deal of their skincare range but I've got several gorgeous Clinique eye shadows. I also had an amazing Clinique lipstick that I loved and bought solely as a colour replacement for a Max Factor one that was discontinued, and we lived happily together until, sadly, Clinque decided to discontinue that colour as well.
Originally I purchased this last year but didn't wear it very much, as you can see it is quite a bright colour and in the summer it didn't quite suit me, it is very pink which is lovely but as I'm fair and a red head I have to be careful with pink as it either washes me out or overpowers me. Anyway, I re-discovered this the other day and it was on such a dull old day I thought maybe it would brighten things up. I was pleasantly surprised to see that it clearly suits me better in the winter than the summer! I've worn it a few times ever since so I think we can safely say that it's my current go to lippy.
As you can see from the photos its a glorious rich colour and the lipstick is very moisturising. It's not one to choose if you want longevity in a lipstick as I found it wasn't particularly long lasting, perhaps that's because its more of a balm? However it is easy to reapply and the 'chubby' stick form means it's great to pop in your pocket or handbag.
The colour of this is number 05 Plushest Pink and costs £17.00 from www.clinique.co.uk.
Has anyone else tried these and if so which colours would you recommend, as I'm going to get another one.
