Clinique has some new additions to their Chubby Stick franchise. The Clinique Chubby Stick Cheek Colour Balm ($24 CAD) is a sheer and creamy cheek colour in an adorable twist up stick with a dome-shaped tip. The blush feels hydrating without being sticky and offers the loveliest glow to the cheeks. The formula includes Lecithin, Squalane, Phytosteryl Isostearate and Vitamin E which helps enhance your skins barrier repair and gives it it’s hydrating properties. All while being water, sweat and humidity resistant. These are promoted as being long wearing but personally, depending on what base I’ve used, these range from very short wearing to average wear. Luckily with the super cute and practical packaging you can toss these in your purse for easy touchups on the go. No tools required. You can of course use a brush or sponge as opposed to your fingers. My favourite application method has been to apply directly to my cheeks and blend out with a brush like the Real Techniques Buffing Brush.
The Cheek Colour Balms come in four shades. Amp’d Up Apple, Robust Rhubarb, Roly Poly Rosy, and Plumped Up Peony. The two shades I have tested and are showing you today are Roly Poly Rosy, which is the perfect natural flush shade, and Robust Rhubarb, which is a lovely peachy coral.
The Clinique Chubby Stick Baby Tint Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm ($19 CAD) is a sheer balm that reacts to your lips chemistry to impart additional colour. The formula is infused with Vitamin C, Shea Butter, Magno Seed Butter, and Jojoba Seed Oil to moisturize lips and leave them feeling supple and smooth. I love using these as opposed to a standard balm because they hydrate so well while still giving my lips a little extra boost of colour.
The packaging has a translucency to it that represents the sheerness of this new Chubby Stick Balm formula. There are four colours available. Poppin’ Poppy, Coming Up Rosy, Budding Blossom, and Flowering Freesia. The two shades I have tested, and that I’m sharing with you today, are Coming Up Rosy, a rosy pink, and Poppin’ Poppy, a soft coral that transforms to more of a rosy pink on me thanks to the colour changing formula.
The new Clinique Chubby Stick Cheek Colour Balm and Clinique Chubby Stick Baby Tint Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm are available now at Clinique counters nationwide and Clinique.com.
