So, I know there are countless versions of these crayon lip products around now - probably one for every brand out there now. However, when I think of them I always think of the Clinique Chubby Stick as being the game starter, the one I compare them all too. Although there are some lovely ones on the market (my favourites being Revlon and Bourjois's offerings) the closest I have found to the Chubby Stick is Soap & Glory's Sexy Mother Pucker Gloss Stick.
I've done a full review on the S&G offering here and the Chubby Stick here if you want to take a peek but I thought I would do a quick comparison for you here.
I've found with a lot of the other sticks that are glossy the formula is quite thick and a little heavy in places, whereas the Chubby Stick and Sexy Mother Pucker have quite a thin formula so it's lovely and light and incredibly comfortable to wear. I would however say that Chubby Stick is a lot more balm like then the Sexy Mother Pucker. It's a lot more nourishing whereas the Sexy Mother Pucker is definitely more of a gloss. They give a very similar level of gloss - not too shiny and slippery, but not subtle either. They give them a healthy shine.
Longevity wise I do have to hand it to the Chubby Stick - it lasts for a good couple of hours longer then the Sexy Mother Pucker, I think this is because of its more balm like qualities, it grips the lips a bit better than a gloss product usually does. In terms of pigmentation they are very similar, its a touch of sheer, buildable colour. More colour than a normal gloss, more of a tinted balm.
Then we move onto price... Obviously the Clinique Chubby Stick is a bit more pricey, coming in at £17.00 whereas the Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker is at more then half the price at just £8. It's definitely more purse friendly and considering the products are so similar it's definitely more of a bargain. The only thing I would say though is that there is a much wider range of colours in terms of the Chubby Stick. Overall I'm torn! I do love the Sexy Mother Puckers, but the Chubby Stick just pips it to the post for longevity.
