Clinique Chubby Stick Review

Clinique chubby stick

I'm always one of the last people to jump on the latest trends or makeup bandwagons. I've been going in and out of my local Boots and House of Fraser for months contemplating buying one of the Clinique Chubby Sticks, but I just never got round to it. It always slipped my mind or when I remembered I didn't have £17 to spend on a lip product. Last week my partner gave me a House of Fraser gift card and told me to treat myself. I spent the majority of it on a French Connection jumper which was on sale and the remaining £5 I finally invested on one of the most highly regarded lip products within beauty blogging for the last year.

According to the Clinique website "Chubby Stick Moisturising Lip Colour Balm is a lip treatment with sheer colour that relieves dry, cracked lips and provides immediate mositurisation. The unique pencil-style applicator provides an easy to apply sheer soft lip colour and rolls up for ease of use." The last few weeks i've been suffering from really dry lips and this was probably the reason I surrendered to buying one of these products.

Having browsed the Clinique stand for more than half an hour trying to decide which colour I wanted, I finally decided to go with Chunky Cherry. I really like soft pink lip colours and I was looking for a product that I could wear on a daily basis and would go with most of my outfits. As soon as I tried the Clinique Chubby Stick I noticed that my lips were instantly softer and smoother. The painful cracking seemed to settle down and the colour looked simple, yet pretty. After a few days of use, my lips were in a better condition and I still had not got over how beautiful the colour is. If there was one downfall about this product, it would be that the taste seems too waxy for my liking. After 10 minutes it does settle down and seems non-existent, but the initial application takes some getting used to.

Chubby sticks are available from Clinique counters or online at £17. I honestly think this is a little bit too steep for this product, especially when other companies are making replicas for three times as less and just as good. Nevertheless, I do love the Clinique brand as a whole so I'm more than likely to buy a few more of them.

Have you tried any Chubby Sticks yet?


  1. I completely agree with you. Clinique may be the original but there are so many affordable versions on the high street with excellent formulas that I don't know if I'll get more Clinique chubbys... :o) Xx
