Clinique Whole Lotta Colour Chubby Stick Gift Set
Super Strawberry - Oversized Orange - Curvy Candy - Richer Raisin - Chunky Cherry
Clinique Chubby Sticks have been on my radar since the blogger hype descended last year, and as usual I am ridiculously late to the band-waggon after two new types of chubby stick have already been released into the blogosphere! However, I bought this Christmas gift set in the January sales after sadly not receiving it for Christmas, as I thought this would be a perfect way to try out some of the beautiful colours. It contains 5 mini-chubbies of 1.2g each, with all of them weighing up at around half of a normal £16 Chubby Stick. This idea appealed to me so much as I very rarely get though a normal lipstick, so five minis is perfect and I feel like these will last me a while.
The actual consistency is absolutely perfect for everyday wear, and for around 3 weeks I haven't even touched any other lip products from my (overflowing) lip draw as these are so moisturising, subtle and beautiful that they outshine all my other lipsticks... I feel like I'm neglecting my babies! My absolute favourite colour of them all is Chunky Cherry, a lovely bright, warm pink which is gorgeous on its own, and thankfully all the colours wear off to a stain like finish... without drying out my lips. The only colour I'm not 100% sure of is Richer Raisin, a very neutral brown shade, which I have dubbed my 'grown-up' colour and is only whipped out on the most sophisticated of occasions.
After trying out these I have a developed a bit of a taste for Chubby Sticks and I am seriously considering the Chubby Stick Intense versions; the formula really floats my boat! Sadly I think these sets are now all out of stock but you can still find some flying around on eBay. What do you think of Chubby Sticks?
