Clinique Chubby Sticks for Lips, Cheeks and Eyes

Tuesday, 1 September 2015



Hello Beauties! I hope you're all well and had a lovely Bank Holiday weekend! Working for an airport definitely has it's perks, one being that I now have access to duty free shopping which is great news for my makeup collection...not so much for my bank account though. On Friday I decided to treat myself to a few new goodies when I was in World Duty Free, and today I thought I'd let you know how I got on with this 'Pretty On Arrival' set from Clinique. Clinique first launched their Chubby Sticks a few years back now and have slowly been adding to the line over the past couple of years. That being said, I've never actually tried anything from the 'chubby stick' range - shocking, I know, hence the reason why I decided to treat myself to this set. 'Pretty on Arrival' is a World Duty Free exclusive so if you're flying anytime soon then you'll definitely be able to get your mitts on this, however if you're not there's no need to worry, all of the products are available separately if one of them takes your fancy! 

 The first (and the biggest) product in the set is the Clinique Chubby Stick for Cheeks in 'Amped Up Apple'. Amped Up Apple is a gorgeous muted rose colour which makes the perfect everyday blush as it's not too in your face, and gives you a really natural looking rosy flush. I'm not normally a fan of cream blush products as I find them a bit tricky to use, however I've really been enjoying this one. The stick applicator makes it really easy to pinpoint exactly where you want your blush, and the creamy formula blends out like a dream, so you don't have to worry about a patchy blush like you often get with cream blush products. I love this for when I'm having a minimal makeup day as it just looks so natural, so if you're into your more natural makeup looks, I'd definitely recommend this. 

 The next product I tried from the set was the Clinique Chubby Stick for Eyes in 'Lots o' Latte'. Being a big fan of neutral and smokey brown eye looks, I knew this shade would be right up my street. I'm a big fan of cream eyeshadows as I find they blend out beautifully and are great for when you want that 'smudged' look, however I find the pots/jars a little annoying as they really do blend better with the warmth from your fingers and dipping your finger into the pot is just a little unhygienic, so I love that this one comes in a stick form. I'd say the colour is pretty similar to 'On and On Bronze' from Maybelline, so if you liked that one, you'll definitely love this one. The creamy formula is comfortable to wear and the stick glides across your lids with ease, so no pulling on the delicate skin around your eyes. I don't have a bad word to say about this eyeshadow stick, and I'd love to add a lighter 'inner corner highlight' shade to my collection. 

Lastly, the set also contains a Chubby Stick Intense for Lips in the shade 'Chunkiest Chilli', which is a gorgeous deep red shade. Most of you will probably know by now that red really isn't my colour when it comes to lips, however as Autumn is fast approaching (although you'd think we were in winter with the weather we've been having!) I thought it would be a good idea to have some more autumn-appropriate shades in my collection. Chunkiest Chilli is a deep vampy red colour which you can either wear as a full on red look due to the intensity of the shade, or as a light stain if you pat off the excess colour, which is probably what I'll be doing. I love the formula of these as they're so comfortable on the lips and also really moisturising. I'd definitely recommend these and at the moment I've got my eye on 'Supreme Sorbet' which is a gorgeous nude pink colour. 

What do you think of the Clinique 'chubby' products?

Lots of Love,
