Review: Clinique Chubby Stick 'Chunky Cherry'

Lip balms/tints have become all the rage, haven't they? As I recall, the first brand that propelled the humble tint to its now massive popularity in the country was Clinique which was followed like the Pied Piper by a number of others with similar packaging. So you can imagine my delight when I received a chubby stick in a vibrant pink shade as part of the goodies at the Chubby Stick launch with Strut120 and Clinique which I'll be reviewing for you, just below:



Disclaimer:The thoughts and opinions expressed regarding the product below are honest and completely my own.




Packaging:
As the name suggests, the product is in a chubby retractable pencil form with the cover and base in a metallic silver and the body in the same shade as the balm itself.





Price: Approximately Rs. 1025

Size: 3 gms


Top swatch - After one swipe, Bottom swatch - After two swipes



Results:
*Pros:
- The packaging is gorgeous and neat. The retractability and the shade colour and name mentioned clearly on the outside makes it easy to pick.
- It lends a natural, healthy tint to your lips.
- It brings together the best qualities of a balm and gloss.
- It is hydrating and kept my lips moisturized.

*Cons:
- The lasting power is just about 3 hours.
- The colour payoff is sheer and would require to be built up if you're looking for pigmentation.
- Expensive



My advice:
It is a brilliant product in most aspects but it depends what your reasons are when you're searching for one. If you are looking for a healthy sheen and hydrated, supple lips - go for the Chubby Stick. If you're looking for colour and pigmentation - this isn't it.


So have you gotten on the lip balm/tint bandwagon yet? I'd love to know!

True! Like I said I like it too but I'll consider it wisely if I had to purchase it on my own. It works as well as any other protective tinted lip balm would, and yes, the flavouring is nice but... maybe I'd give it a pass. It does come in handy though, while carrying a big tote all over the place. Ooh, and the copycat ones, well not really copycat as such but, yeah I've seen so many now! Espec. the weird Lakmé Pop Tints.
I'm wondering if you found it sticky? I think I would like the sheer aspect, but I hate it when my hair sticks to my lips!

Exactly!
It is pretty expensive if I went to buy it and honestly my baby lips does a similar job as well..plus with those lakme poptints (what a rip-off!) and the revlon stains it really has its competition sorted out.

I hate that too but with the chubby stick I didn't find it sticky at all :)
