Clinique Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm review

I never leave the house without something on my lips, whether its a lip balm, lipgloss or lipstick!

The Clinique Chubby Sticks were released earlier this year and definitely have been a must try product for me, the packaging is so enticing.

Clinique says: Super-nourishing balm is loaded with mango and shea butters. Just what dry, delicate lips need to feel comfortably soft and smooth. Eight natural-looking lip tints in all, each with a subtle sheen.

The Clinique Chubby sticks are a oversized crayon-like balm that has a cap. Once you take the cap off, you apply the chubby stick to your lips. You wind it up to get more product out and it doesn't need sharpening. I was sent to try the 06 whoppin watermelon - a pretty light pink colour.

The texture of the chubby stick is a thin consistency that feels like a lip balm, glides on beautifully, is smooth and lightweight on the lips. It feels very moisturising and comfortable on the lips, with a light colour payoff. They are sheer, but can be built up if you apply a few layers. I apply a few layers about four and this lip balm lasts a good three to four hours, before I feel like I need to reapply.

It is definitely a lip balm, that moisturises and feels hydrating with a hint of colour. If your after a everyday lip balm that feels moisturising and smooth on the lips (excellent for dry lips) and easy to apply, then these are great. The packaging are presentable, cute and fun!

These are available at Clinique counters for $35aud and have eight shades to choose from.

Do you have a favourite lip balm? What do you prefer lipstick, lipgloss or lip balms?

Oh lovely! I've heard so much about them and have been drooling over the hot pink color! Haven't gotten around to trying any but am still eager! Thanks for sharing, the color looks like a fab pink!

@Blackmentos - Thanks for your comment! It is great and a beautiful colour. I've seen some great Ghristmas gift sets Clinique have for christmas, definitely worth a look at - they are great deals when in the gift packs.

I actually did a blog not long ago about dry lips, because mine are also so dry around this time of the year! And I really liked the ones with colour to it, because you can put them and have a fresh colour on your lips, without having to use lip gloss or lip stick which often dry your lips.

@windyar - These are great for dry lips and have a lovely sheer colour!

I actually have a chubby stick and use it every day!! I have the raspberry coloured one, cant remember exact name. But I agree- it is so nourishing and the colour builds up even for night!! Great post xx
