Clinique Chubby Sticks Review

I know that every beauty blogger is currently raving about the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Lip Balm Stains, but let me introduce you to their older cousins – Clinique Chubby Sticks. I bought these babies on an airplane ride back from Dubai a few months ago, and I am so glad I did!

They are described as moisturizing lip colour balms, which I think is a perfect wording for these products. They go on smoothy and moisturize your lips just like nourishing lip balms and are therefore perfect for dry lips as well. What I love about them is that they don’t dry out your lips even when the product rubs off, which I’ve experienced with the L’Oreal Rouge Caresse Lipsticks

I got them in three colors: Mega Melon, Woppin’ Watermelon and Super Strawberry. I love all of them, but my favorite has to be the Woopin’ Watermelon. It’s my favorite summer lip product and I’m definitely repurchasing it when I run out of it. 

As you can see, these products are not very pigmented, but you can definitely build the color up. I know that some of you won’t like the lack of pigmentation, but I think they are amazing if you want to go for a natural, effortless look. I also love the subtle sheen they give!

All in all, I can’t say anything bad about this product. The only downside is the price. They aren’t exactly cheap – one of them will cost you about $16 – but I think they’re worth it.

    i hate how clinique can be abit pricey 🙁 But i guess alot of the time their products are worth it. love how they arn't too pigmented. means you can keep them pale if you don't want to build it up =)

    I might go and get one of these so I can compare them to the Revlon ones, out of those ones I really like super strawberry 🙂

      Super strawberry is also really gorgeous, but I'm saving it for the fall, since it's a bit darker. 🙂

    The pigmentation kind of reminds me of the Revlon Lip Butters! xo

      I don't own any lip butters, but from what I've seen on blogs, you're probably right!

    I have Woppin' Watermelon and I really like it! 🙂 But I'm interested in the melon shade too. I think the Revlon ones are a bit different to the Chubby Sticks – the Clinique ones are sheerer and don't stain. Plus I think they are packaged more nicely 🙂

    Cena je kar visoka, glede na to, da je količinsko bolj boga, ampak si jo pa želim izprobat 🙂

    They all look great to me, the only turn off most of the times about Clinique product is their price. They really need to cut it a bit!
