Ever since the «original» Clinique Chubby Sticks were launched in Switzerland back in 2012 (impressions from the Chubby Stick event) I’ve been a fan of these cute little lip pencils. Over the past year I’ve had the chance to try various Chubby Stick versions from the «normal» ones, over the «Baby Tint» versions till the eye and cheek versions. But I’ve only made very few experiences with the «Chubby Stick Intense»* version. Since Clinique just launched a few new shades I think it’s the perfect time to catch up on those «missed experiences»;)
New Shades: Clinique Chubby Stick Intense Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm
The «Chubby Stick Intense» pencils look exactly the same as their lighter sisters, the normal Chubby Sticks. As the name suggests the difference appears in the pigmentation and the color payoff. While the normal Chubby Sticks are known for their creamy and nourishing formulation and their sheer and light tones, the intense ones are way more pigmented and a little less shinny. The formulation is still nourishing, but not as creamy as the original ones, which on the other hand makes these lipsticks last a little better on the lips (around 2 hours on my lips).
The application of the intense ones is the same: without the slightest effort, easy and quick! But different from the normal ones I’d recommend you to reapply them in front of a mirror 😉
I can’t decide which ones I like better: the «Original» or the «Intense» ones. I guess that depends a lot on the event and my mood;)
