Clinique Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm


I finally have my hands on the new Clinique Chubby Stick Lip Colour Balms.These have been on the radar since I first read of them months ago. My love of tinted lip balms is well documented on here.

***** Update- see new shades 2012 here

 They don't disappoint either. Chubby Sticks  pack plenty of moisture and pigment . These aren't sheer balms . They are not deep either but have more pigment than most tinted balms  .

The finish has some shine but is really a satin finish.  No shimmer. They are like  a balm/lipstick almost  but with a very light feeling on the lips.   The moisture comes from shea butter, mango seed butter , jojoba seed oil, sunflower seed oil and olive oil .   They apply like a dream since you're outlining with a pencil.   The only downside was they don't last as long as I would like. Thats not untypical with   some tinted balms so I just re-apply.


The color selection is  good  with several neutral brown based shades and several pinks along with more peachy Mega Melon( my  personal favorite).

Highlight- They twist up when you need more product . When I first saw images months ago I thought they would need an incovenient sharperner. Not so, just twist the bottom and the stick comes up.

PS- In a pinch, these could be used as cheek tint.

All shades are :

Chunky Cherry
Fuller Fig
Graped-Up
Mega Melon
Richer RaisinSuper Strawberry
Whole Lotta Honey
Woppin' Watermelon

$ 15.00 at all Clinique outlets and http://www.clinique.com/

I like the moisturizing colors of the Cherry Red and Strawberry. Both colors look great! Im thinking about buying 2 more but havent decided is it will be grape or raisin.
Let me know if anyone has bought one of these and how the color looks

Hi Catherine, I have the Raisin as well but didn't get it in the shot. It's really nice, a light - medium wine shade with a bit of brown. Possibly my 2nd favorite of the colors. Only one I haven't tried is the Grape.

Hope that helps.

I love the tip you gave to apply the color to your cheeks. I will try and pass the information along. I linked to your blog post on my blog Noir|Beauty. Read my review of Clinique's Chubby Stick here http://LNK.by/fgwy4
