It’s absolutely no surprise that legions of cosmetic crayons have swamped the beauty industry. They’re handy to have along, most are automatic twist-ups and in no need of sharpening, you’ve got great control and well, they’re just bug cute to look at. Yes I know I’m more than a little late on the whole craze but I’ve finally got my fix haven’t I? Apparently, all those other brands jumped on the crayon bandwagon without shame, but we do have to hand it to the brand leading the pack, don’t we?
CLINIQUE Chubby Stick Intense LIPS (Php920) – “Tempt lips with a soft cushion of colour that’s not quite sheer, not quite opaque-just the perfect happy medium. Loaded with mango and shea butters so lips feel comfortably soft and smooth. Eight vibrant shades in all.”
CLINIQUE Chubby Stick for EYES (Php920) – “Sheer wash of lightweight, creamy colour slips on. Layerable and long-wearing. Versatile, too. Glide one on for a swift wash of colour. Contour with another to add depth, and yet another to highlight. There’s no need to stop at just one. Appropriate for sensitive eyes and contact lens-wearers.”
When the Clinique team asked me to choose what to review for the first time, I was excited. I replied in a heartbeat (well, after lunch) “Chubby sticks…” requesting the Intense one for lips in Heftiest Hibiscus, a coral with a sneaky raspberry undertone, and the one for eyes in Lavish Lilac, a “mushroomed” murky lavender. I’d never bothered to try their smaller sheer chubby predecessors simply coz the idea of “sheer” crayons didn’t appeal to me, however these, in a moment, you will see why I really like these.
