Clinique Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm

January 29, 2011
By

The new Clinique Chubby Sticks are finally in Singapore. These fatty crayon balms are smooth and lip-nourishing, thanks to their mango and shea butter content. They also impart a healthy sheen to the lips. I love the jelly visual and its connotation of see-through colour.

Unlike their predecessors which needed to be sharpened, these revamped versions are retractable – more convenient, plus there is practically no product wastage. They also seem to have more glide and shine.

Unfortunately, only four of the original eight are available here: 02 Whole Lotta Honey, 04 Mega Melon, 06 Woppin’ Watermelon and 07 Super Strawberry. In Singapore, these natural-looking lip tints retail at an affordable S$26 each. For reference, Karla Sugar has good swatches of them.

    Oh good! $26 is a good buy (I’m sure they will be at least $30 here in Australia) – will pick up on my holiday.

      Hi Sam,

      I agree. They look and feel pretty good.

    i read that these are very sheer and they feather as they dry out on your lips

      Hi Karen,

      I haven’t tried them on my lips, so I don’t know how drying they are. I did swatch them and they felt moisturising on my skin. They aren’t hugely pigmented but there’s definitely colour to them.

    More than anything else, I love the promo pic with the cubes of jello!

    I’m wondering if they have Curviest Caramel here… How do you find the Chubby sticks are compared to Revlon’s Kissable Balm Stain? :)

      Hi Ella,

      I can’t remember seeing that particular shade but it’d be best for you to check at the Clinique counter. :) The Revlon ones are more pigmented and buildable, in my experience. ;)
