Remember a while back I showed you how many lip products I carry on average in my purse? If you missed it, I would say I carry an average of 10 lip products a week in my purse. No joke. The past couple of weeks I was lugging around my usual load plus four additional lippies in the form of Clinique’s Chubby Sticks, a.k.a. my new obsessions.
Chubby Sticks are crayon-like pencils that are a hybrid lipstick/lipgloss/lip balm. They’ve made the rounds on many a beauty blog, and I’m happy to report that I think they live up to the hype. Colour, shine and moisture in one nifty package? What’s not to love.
I tried four colours: Mega Melon, Whole Lotta Honey, Woppin’ Watermelon and Super Strawberry. On my pigmented lips these are more subtle on me but they still give a good amount of colour. The shine is gorgeous and it feels super comfortable on the lips — they are not at all sticky. Another cool thing is the applicator — it twists up like a lipstick so you never have to sharpen it. Gotta love that.
Chubby Sticks are a great option for those not ready to commit to lipstick but enjoy the shine of lipgloss.
Ladies in Canada, this Limited Edition Chubby Colour & Shine gift set ($38.50) is currently available at Murale and Shopper’s Drug Mart. A great gift idea or something to add to your wish list?
