Today I'll be reviewing the ever popular Chubby Stick by Clinique in the Whole Lotta Honey shade. Now these released a while back (I'm guessing around early 2011) and I'm happy to report they are permanent additions to Clinique's lip product line. I bought mine from Sephora for CAD $19 and so far it's been my go-to lip product for a sheer but glossy wash of a very warm and flattering shade of pink. This is one of the very few shades of pink that I've enjoyed on both my lip color and skintone and that's saying a lot!
Additionally, the product claims to be a, "super-nourishing tinted lip balm." which I believe the product does deliver. If my lips are slightly dry and need some color as well, I reach for my latest Clinique love. Now if you have a lot of lines on your lips and they are severely dehydrated and peeling, then the product won't necessarily transform them into supple, baby-soft lips but for daily moisturizing it's perfect. Not only is it affordable (for a relatively high-end beauty product) but the Chubby Stick is ridiculously convenient with its twist-up mechanism that negates the need for a jumbo sharpener. The only downside to the product is the very strong "crayola" scent, which I must admit, does disappear after a few uses (perhaps because one gets habituated) but honestly that's my only complaint with the Chubby Stick. Since these do come in a variety of shades, be sure to test one out at your nearest Clinique counter and I'm sure they'll soon become a staple in your makeup bag! Check out swatches below!
