I have been a very busy blogger recently attending lots of events and I have some exciting new products to show you all! The first of which are the new Clinique Chubby Sticks! The event was held at the Estee Lauder offices in Central London and we were greeted with the biggest jelly tower – how bloody cool is that! Amrita (6 Inch Stilettos) and Jen (Beauty Junkie London) had a giggle prodding and poking them – they had extra gelatine in so they wobbled like crazy.
I was given six to take home and try out, swatches below!
We managed to take a photograph of all eight of them, which you can see below – swatches below on the lovely Amrita’s hand!
What I think – I’m pleasantly surprised and impressed by these little beauties and they have become firm staples in my handbag. I can’t get over just how moisturizing they are, it actually just feels like you are applying lip balm, just with a great tint of colour. These are super sheer but you can build them up to be more pigmented. I quite like the fact that they are so sheer, it means I can apply without looking in the mirror and they aren’t too heavy to wear in the summer.
Also, to get more product you simply twist the bottom, like a lipstick, this makes it much easier than a lip crayon that you have to sharpen and waste lots of product. My favourite from the range is ‘Whole Lotta Honey’, which I’ve been carrying every where and wearing every day and I also adore ‘Woopin’ Watermelon’ and ‘Mega Melon’.
These retail at £13.50 a stick – which I’ll admit is expensive, but if it doubles up as a lip balm then I think its worth it. My lips haven’t felt so soft wearing a lip colour in a long time.
Which one of these are you eyeing up? What’s your favourite sheer lip product?
