Review | Clinique Chubby Stick Intense in Roomiest Rose

26 Feb 2013


Holy grail lip product? I think I've found mine :) On a spur of the moment purchase last month, I decided to throw caution to the wind (and by that I mean my bank balance!) and buy into the Chubby Stick hype. After serious deliberation, with my hand ending up varying shades of pinky red I decided on shade 6 Roomiest Rose.

Its part of the 'intense' chubby stick range which promises a fuller coverage on the lips and a more moisturising finish. Roomiest Rose is such a pretty dusky rose and is really wearable for both day and night. The original Chubby Sticks give quite a sheer finish, but with the new intense range I find the colour pay-off really great and it lasts at least 3 hours without needing to re-apply (obviously if you aren't drinking/eating heavily anyway!).

(After attempting about 20 different close-ups of my lips, I started losing the will to live...)
With the pen style applicator, its so easy to apply and means you don't necessarily need a mirror when topping up throughout the day. Which for me, is such a plus as it feels like a much more casual lip to wear in the day. I think the colour is so versatile with different make-up looks and can really glam up an outfit. At £16 a pop it is a pretty extravagant purchase, but I do think the stick will last me absolutely ages and for the quality of product I think its definitely worth it. I already want the stick in different colours!

I've heard quite a lot about the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains being a really good dupe for the Chubby Sticks, and when looking at the packaging its hard to tell them apart! So, I'm definitely going to try one from this range next to compare, as they're a bit more purse friendly.

Have any of you tried the new intense range of Chubby Sticks? Do you think they're worth the money?
