Hi guys n gals, happy Wednesday! A few weeks back I was lucky enough to win a competition Clinique was running for Valentines day. I never everrrrr win anything so I was over the moon when I found out, but then I realised they'd picked a whole bunch of winners so I was not so special haha, but nonetheless! I am so pleased with my little winning - A Clinique lipstick in shade 07 Super Strawberry.
Now as you probably know I collect lipsticks like there's no tomorrow. I feel like I can't leave the house without putting something on my lips, no matter how bold or subtle it is, I feel naked going without. So you can imagine my excitement winning a new lip product to try out and a bloody good one at that.
I've never ventured into Clinique's beauty range, I always have this predetermined idea that skincare should stick to being skincare and makeup brands should stick with selling makeup, so if i'm being brutally honest it's never really appealed to me all that much. Yet this lipstick has totally swerved my opinions and I'm left with an itch to try some more of Clinique's beauty range.
On first impressions the Chubby Sticks are super moisturising, I've been suffering with pretty dry lips lately and this has been my go-to lip balm. They have a gorgeous subtle colour, this one in particular, Super Strawberry - is very sheer but leaves my lips a natural red 'just bitten' colour which I feel really emphasises my lips natural shade.
I also find the actual pencil shape applicator to be such a godsend. I can't be the only one who hates tin lip balms?! the thought of the germs from my fingers touching the product makes me feel queasy. So having a pencil-style applicator which I can just glide on my lips whenever they're feeling a little quenched is perfect. This shade itself is one i'd typically go for but now I've done my research I've got so many different shades I want to pick up too. So, suffering from dry lips and want a product that'll not only look pretty but help moisturise them? Chubby sticks are the ones for you.
Have any of you tried the Chubby sticks or is there any Clinique products you would recommend?
let me know! Thanks for reading x
