AMW Reviews: Clinique Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Color Balm

I fell in love with the Clinique Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Color Balm the moment I laid my eyes on them!  I first saw them at Clinique counter but didn't get the chance to try the testers because I seldom do! :)

I told myself: "Great!  I need to find my big-holed sharpener for this!"
(Totally clueless girl, I know!)

What a big surprise when I read online reviews on how moisturizing this lip color balm is, but also how it's wonderfully packaged like a crayon minus the sharpening!


Clinique Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Color Balm says ---
Super-nourishing balm is loaded with mango and shea butters. Just what dry, delicate lips need to feel comfortably soft and smooth. Eight natural-looking lip tints in all, each with a subtle sheen.

AMW says ---
Pros
  • Super cute to look at, packaging is the same shade as lip balm shade.
  • I never have to sharpen it as the product can be swiveled.
  •  Doesn't dry out my lips!  Can be applied even without lip balm. 
  •  Very natural to look at no matter what shade you choose.
  • Though a tinted lip balm, it is a bit more pigmented than regular tinted balms.
  • The shade stays longer than other tinted balms.
  • Doesn't dry out my lips.
Cons
  • Colors aren't that bold if you are someone who are looking for boldly colored lip product.
  • A bit pricey if you aren't used to shelling out more than Php500.00 for a lip color balm.
Overall
Clinique made a perfectly packaged lip product plus the texture and color is amazing!

Tips
  • Always store in cool, dry place.  Do not leave this inside the car as it may melt.
  • Even with it's perfect "crayon" shape, I strongly suggest to still use a lip brush if you plan to apply this to others.
  • You can outline your lips first prior to filling in the rest of your lips.
  • You can use this as a balm underneath by dabbing a bit of the moisture with a napkin then re -apply with similarly colored lipstick!  The Clinique Chubby Stick can amplify the color of your lipstick plus it protects your lips from drying.
  • Always swivel back the lipstick before you close the cap to prevent lipstick accidents.
  • For weddings: I like applying a lip liner all over the lips on bride for longwear, then top with the Clinique Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Color Balm for a very nice, and natural wedding day look!
Will I repurchase?
Yes!  In other shades.

To whom do I recommend this to?
Those who like natural colored lips with loads of moisture!

Where to purchase and how much?
At Clinique counters for Php960.00 (approx $22.30).

 Shade is named even on tube
07 Super Strawberry

 On packaging, the color reminded me so much
of a "matte bright red" crayon

Don't let the "look" deceive you! 
With once swipe, it shoes a nice reddish tint



Applied on lips 
I know my lips are still dry but considering on HOW DRY my lips originally are
well, it looks way much better with the help of the Chubby Stick!

Have you tried Clinique's Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Color Balm?
What's the next shade I should purchase?

Keep smilin'
Stay happy!

  9. i got the mega melon shade mid last year and it's been my super favorite lipstick/lipgloss. yes a bit pricey but definitely worth it. it does heal the dryness and at the same time provide light-med lip color. i will definitely buy another shade soon.

  10. I love this! I first got megamelon from rustans last year. when i was in HK airport for a stopover, I got megamelon again and chunky cherry in their duty free shop---much cheaper there and they have all the colors! I love megamelon for summer, has a nice peachy-orangey tone. and chunky cherry (i dont think they have it here in manila) is my perfect red lipstick. i have clinique's happy heart lipstick but i prefer chubby sticks because they are lighter to use
