Things always smell, taste, feel and look better when they are free, or gifted in this case. My lovely friend S gave me some lip products recently because unfortunately they didn’t suit her skin tone. It was my lucky day, and I welcomed a fabulous Clinique Chubby Stick Moisturising Lip Colour Balm to my collection.
Mango and shea butter based, the Chubby Sticks ($35) are extremely moisturising (like regular lip balm), but tinted with a subtle, shimmering colour, giving them a more glamorous look. The balm slides on quite easily without that sticky feel. This particular balm has a pale pink shine, but enough colour to actually pop on my lips. Unlike regular lip balm, the Clinique Chubby Stick holds its colour, and is more lipstick than gloss.
Like all Clinique products, you expect quality and that is exactly what I’ve found. I’ve been wearing it to work on a regular basis as the colour is strong, but not too over the top for the hospital. It’s also simple to reapply, no mirror required.
I really do love Clinique’s packaging, enough to create a “photo shoot” for my lip balm. The simple pink and silver is very feminine and chic. To be honest the pink and silver colour combination always makes me think of Barbie. A nineties childhood flashback is always much appreciated!
What is your favourite lip balm?
PS – Thanks again S! x
