Review | Clinique Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm in Super Strawberry

November 6, 2011

I have a weakness for fatty pencils. Be they for the lips or the eyes, I’m attracted to them because their shape makes application that much easier. Better yet if they’re retractable – bye bye fiddly sharpeners! ;)

Of late, I’ve been using Clinique Chubby Stick in Super Strawberry (S$26). A tinted lip balm that surprisingly lasts, this product does as it promises – it gives me luscious-looking lips while keeping them soft.

On its own, it’s a cheerful shade of strawberry pink (lighter than it looks in the tube) which can build up to a semi-medium rose. It is essentially a cool-toned shade and can cool warmer lip hues to a certain extent. It doesn’t have depth of colour, so it certainly won’t overly-dilute your other lip colours.

Some people have found the Chubby Sticks drying but I’ve also friends who love them. Like the latter, I am fond of their moisturising feel – thank you, mango butter and shea butter – and I like it best as a moisturising base for other lipsticks.

I particularly love it with a blackened berry like Urban Decay Lipstick in Confession.

It works to tone down the darkness and gives me a pretty and wearable mauve hue which I love!

      Hi Moni,

      Thank you~!

      It does have shine but it isn’t super glossy. It doesn’t feel sticky at all. :)

    Great combination! My Chubby Stick is about a third of the way through – not bad for almost a year!
