You may already know I've got a lot of love for the Clinique Chubby Sticks but for those who didn't you can read my previous review here.
For the past few years I've been more inclined towards lip balms and butters compared to lipsticks, mainly because I find them more moisturising and with less tendency to bleed around the lips when eating/drinking/talking (or sometimes all three!)
Being the proud owner of quite a few of the standard chubby sticks, I've wanted to try the Intense version in order to make a comparison and explore the new shades for a while now, and so, at £16 I opted for Curviest Caramel.
Marketed on the Clinique.co.uk site as:
'NEW Chubby Stick Intense Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm delivers full coverage in 8 rich blod shades. Lips are immediately moisturized and left with a soft glossy finish in a bright intense colour.'
and described on Clinique.com as a product to:
'Tempt lips with a soft cushion of colour that's not quite sheer, not quite opaque - just the perfect happy medium. Loaded with mango and shea butters so lips feel comfortably soft and smooth.'
I really wasn't expecting it to be much different from the standard chubby sticks, however the colour pay off is a lot stronger and you need fewer coats to get the desired shade. The product feels heavier when applied but without the stickiness you get with a standard gloss. It feels moisturising and smooth and lasts ages.
I love this shade against my pale skin. Being a girl who goes for strong eyes/nude lips it's going to look great for my next night out. I'll try to pop a pic or two on of the stick in situ but until then, here's a quick lip pic.
So, what do you think?
Are you a fan of the Clinique Chubby Sticks and if so, which shade is your favourite?
Thanks for reading....
