The whole beauty community has been raving about Clinique Chubby Stick Intense and no matter if you’re keeping up with the trends or just living under a rock – you’ve heard about them at least once. I was super excited when they became available in stores in Croatia and I decided to get one in shade Mightiest Maraschino.
Clinique describes this shade as classic red and I must agree with it – it’s great neutral shade that will look great both on ladies with cooler as well as warm undertones. For those who like intense lipsticks, it works as beautiful daytime lip color, but you can also take it as a nighttime color. As the name says it is intensely pigmented, giving your lips full color – the exact same you see in a package.
As far as the texture goes it’s very creamy, kind of balmy, and very comfortable on the lips. I was very pleasantly surprised how long it lasts on my lips – 3 hours minimum (and I constantly nibble and fidget my lips). It has a good, hydrating formula that will take care of your lips. Don’t expect it to fix cracked lips, but I will keep them in a really good shape, it won’t dry them out or cause any discomfort.
Being shaped like a pencil makes really easy and simple this Chubby straight from the tube. I’m wondering what’s it going to be like when I wear off the “tip”. I guess I’ll be using a lip brush then or try to reshape it, but until then I’ll be just applying it like this.
All in all, I’m very happy with this cute little Chubby. I’ve been wearing it non-stop for past two weeks both day and night and still can’t get enough of it. The only down side is the range of shades available in Croatia. Chubby Stick Intense comes in 8 shades, but here we only get to choose between 3 of them: Heftiest Hibiscus, Mightiest Maraschino and Roomiest Rose.
Tell me what you think, are you already madly in love? Have you even come to this part of the post or are you already on your way running to the store?
