Pros: A great moisturizing tinted lip balm which is unscented.
I’ve been on a mission to find a tinted lip balm without a fruity scent. I have been to several stores where samples are available to try or smell and all the ones I’ve tried exacerbate my allergies with the scent.
After seeing a magazine advertisement for Clinique Chubby Stick, a bell went off and I knew I would be able to find a tinted lip balm that was unscented at the Clinique counter, so off to Macy’s I went.
Clinique Chubby Stick is a moisturizing lip colour balm. It comes in a “chubby” tube measuring 4 1.4” in length. It actually resembles a chubby crayola crayon. The pull off cap is a silver plastic, the color of the lip balm is visible in the middle and there is a silver plastic end cap which twists to allow the lip balm to rise, as in a lipstick.
This lip balm is Clinique’s newest lip product offering moisture as well as a hint of soft shine. This product is allergy tested and fragrance free. I was ecstatic when I found there was no scent to the eight different fruity shades of Clinique Chubby Stick lip colour balm!
Clinique Chubby Stick moisturizing lip colour balm is available in the eight following colors:
Whole Lotta Honey
I chose the color Whole Lotta Honey which is close to a dark mauve in color. It applied smoothly and was very creamy leaving a hint of soft shine. My lips felt nourished from the shea butter as well as the mango seed butter. My lips felt stickier than my usual Le Paige Aloe Lipstick, but I imagine that is the difference between a lip balm and a lipstick.
I did blot the lip balm so the color wouldn’t transfer to my white cup I was using at the time. Blotting removes some of the gloss so I really don't know if blotting is recommended or not, for I have never used a tinted lip balm before.
Because I purchased several Clinique products amounting to over $21.00, another smaller sample of the Chubby Stick was included in the free makeup bag. The free Chubby Stick came in the color, Mango Melon. This is more of a peach color and I am glad that I have both the warm and cool colors now without having to purchase another stick.
The cost of a Clinique Shubby Stick moisturinzing lip colour balm is approximately $15.00 and can be found at major department stores.
I am so glad I thought of Clinique in my mission to find a tinted lip balm, for all their products are unscented.
Thank you for reading my review.
