Review • Clinique Chubby Stick Intense In Heftiest Hibiscus

I was so excited to receive a Clinique Chubby Stick for Christmas, as I had never tried any of the balmy stain kind of lip products before this. Unlike the normal chubby sticks that wash a sheer layer of colour over the lips, this really is intense. The colour is almost as pigmented as a lipstick, but because of the formula its not completely opaque - although it can be built up (or sheered out for a hint of colour). This would be really good for people who have dry lips, as it is so moisturising, and glides on really smoothly over any chapped skin.

I have the shade " 04 Heftiest Hibiscus" and it is such a pretty shade, especially for Summer. It is a red toned orange shade - which I think would suit a variety of skin tones. It lasts about 2 hours of my lips before I have to reapply which is about average for me. The colour is very 'out there' so if you are one who likes more natural colours - I'd go for a lighter shade (I have my eye on the shade "Curviest Caramel" it looks beautiful).

you can find it here.

What do you think of the lipstick lip balm hybrids?

    1. It seems pointless to do swatches, as everyone has different skin tones - so it wouldn't look the same on someone else as it does on me! If you wanted to see a swatch, there are loads on google!

  10. I love chubbysticks in general and this one in particular. I agree re swatches. My skin is so warm toned this looks very red on my but on a cooler skinned girl this would be orange. It is a great purchase though.I have followed your blog and would love it if you popped across to mine to say hi.

  13. They also have a shade called Mighty Mimosa that I adore - it's the most gorgeous coral-y pink shade.
