Clinique Chubby Sticks "Whole Lotta Candy"

The moment Clinique released their Chubby Sticks (forever ago) I wanted to try them but for some odd reason I only just got around to seeing what they were all about. Sure, I had swatched them on one of my many leisurely strolls through Sephora but I had never made a purchase because there was always something higher up on my wish list that ended up winning the checkout battle. I also tend to go for more inexpensive lip products because they always seem to get lost in the bottom of my handbag and I'm not big on reapplying throughout the day (I'm more into lip balm). With that being said, I thought it was about time I tried the very trendy lip crayon, especially now that all brands from Bourjois to Rimmel are making their own versions. Starting with the original seems fitting, no?

I got three mini versions in the shades Two Ton Tomato, Voluptuous Violet and Pudgy Peony. I think my favourite of the bunch is Two Ton Tomato but all three are beautiful and wearable shades for someone with pale skin like me. They are extremely easy to apply and are quite low maintenance and I get a couple hours of wear time out of them. I think that these are great for those who don't love the work it can take to make a brighter lipstick look good and prefer a sheerer wash of colour although these are still quite pigmented so you won't be left disappointed like some tinted balms have a tendency to do. What are your favourite lip crayons?

  1. I love how moisturizing the chubby sticks feel. I'm not a big fan of lipstick with a gloss over (too many steps), so I love how all-in-one they are!

  2. I really tried to love Chubby Sticks but I don't. I think it might be the texture for me.

  4. These mini shades look lovely. I like how effortless the chubby sticks are & how moisturising they are.
    Pudgy Peony is my favourite of the three

  6. I really need to get a move on and try these. The colours look so vibrant and beautiful. Is the formula drying at all?

    I tend to prefer lip balm as well but lip crayons are so pretty. There's something so satisfying about colouring in your lips without worrying about being too attentive.
