Clinique Chubby Stick

Clinique Chubby Stick in Super Strawberry £16.00

O hello new lip colour. I've wanted to a chubby stick for ages. You know how much I love the Revlon Just Bitten Balm Stain, and these are the original so!

I was not disappointed. The feel of these is so different to the balm stain. They feel more moisturised, and a bit more slick. The colour goes on so easily as well. The lovely Clinique lady told me that these contained honey to moisturize and you could also build as much colour as you wanted. You just need to build it up, or leave it as sheer as you like.

I chose Super Strawberry because I thought if I was going to spend £16 on a lip stick/balm thing, it should be a colour I'm going to wear a lot - i.e. my lips but better colour. It's quite a berry pink I feel, slightly darker to my usual nudey pinks but I love the colour. It just adds that extra pop!

It stays on for a couple of hours, and the feeling either longer which I love. Definitely a favourite of mine and I do want more - I'm just a bit dubious about the price. £16 is quite a lot of money when you can get something very similar from Revlon. I would say the main difference between the two is that Revlon's Balm Stains are more matte and they have a more 'solid' pigmentation. Where as the chubby sticks are a bit more sheer and have, what I want to call, a more natural pigmentation. If this makes sense at all!!

Have you tried chubby sticks? What colour do you recommend?
