Clinique Chubby Sticks: The Perfect Summer Lip Balm
Looking for a long lasting, moisturizing, intensely colored lip balm for the summer? No need to search any further. Clinique’s Chubby Stick Intense Moisturizing Lip Balm is the perfect match for you to keep your lips soft and smooth under the summer heat.
I recently came across this product a few months ago when I received it as a gift in the shade Voluptuous Violet. I immediately fell in love. From there I invested in a few more colors, completing dynamic collection of lip balms. There are two types of formulas in a large variety of colors that Clinique offers: the original and “intense”, each priced at $17. The original formula is super-nourishing, leaving my lips feeling like silk. Besides the moisturizing properties, the main highlight of this great lip balm is the sheer color it provides. With 20 varying shades, you can find the perfect sheen wash of color to fit your skin tone. The original formula’s color is not overwhelming, giving your look a very natural and fresh approach. Colors include anything from violet to orange (trust me there’s a shade for anyone).
If you’re looking for something with just the same moisturizing properties, but with a deeper color, the Chubby Stick Intense Moisturizing Lip Balm may be the better option for you. There are about 10 shades of rich color to choose from, ranging from Curviest Caramel to Grandest Grape. The difference between this lip balm and the original is the amount of color it provides. It’s not as opaque as a lipstick, but not as sheer as the average lip balm. This lip product is the happy medium between dark color and transparency. Therefore, it’s perfect lip product for the summer. It also feels lightweight on the lips and is super easy to reapply throughout the day.
For a color that doesn’t bleed, is moisturizing, and isn’t too sheer, Cosmia gives the Clinique Chubby Sticks a 9/10 for the “it” lip product of the summer. Check out the colors online or at the nearest Clinique makeup counter to find the shade that fits you best. Pucker up ladies, your lips will be silky smooth for your summer fling with this amazing lip balm.
