Clinique Chubby Stick Intense Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm

Clinique Chubby Stick Intense moisturizing balm is a nourishing tinted lip balm halfway between sheer and opaque. I was looking for a tinted lip balm with bold colour and found these lovelies after my love for the regular chubby stick.




Tinted lip balm usually have the same texture like usual Lip balm but with richer colour and more pigmented. Mostly tinted lip balms I found are still sheer and not pigmented like Lipstick but this Chubby stick intense is really different..

Ingredients:
Castor Seed Oil, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Vegetable Oil, Candelilla Wax, Beeswax, Ozokerite, Shea Butter, Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil, Jojoba Seed Oil, Shea Butter Extract, Mango Seed Butter, Meadowfoam Seed Oil, Sunflower Seed Oil, Hydrogenated Olive Oil, Tocopherol +/- Titanium Dioxide (Ci 77891), Mica, Red 7 Lake (Ci 15850), Iron Oxides (Ci 77499), Iron Oxides (Ci 77491), Yellow 5 Lake (Ci 19140), Red 22 Lake (Ci 45380), Red 30 Lake (Ci 73360), Carmine (Ci 75470), Bismuth Oxychloride (Ci 77163), Red 6 (Ci 15850), Red 33 Lake (Ci 17200), Red 28 Lake (Ci 45410), Blue 1 Lake (Ci 42090), Yellow 6 Lake (Ci 15985)

I'm happy to see that it cointains shea butter, jojoba oil, mango butter and sunflower oil. They're a good natural ingredients for hydrating and moisturizing. But I hate the fact they have titanium dioxide and bismuth as one of their ingredients. :(

I personally think this Lip balm is better than other Korean brand Lipstick I've ever tried, lol. It's more pigmented, moisturizing and has better texture. Plus, it doesn't has fragrance. 


This chubby intense has a medium opaque texture and highly pigmented like Lipstick. It feels like a moisturizing Lipstick or nice luxurious lip balm. You can apply it sheerly with just a few tapping on your lips or apply it with full swipe for a rich pigmented shade.

It surprisingly has a good staying power despite it being a Lip balm, last me through few drinks. But after meal I need a quick touch up and that's not a problem for me, lol. Actually I heard there're plenty good dupes out there with cheaper price, but I'm not sure about the quality.



Honestly I think the formula is quite okay and feels so moisturizing at the first apply but it doesn't stay hydrating for a long time. It is not drying but not so hydrating either, it's medium. The shine also moderate and not too much. 

The texture is really soft and rich, I love applying it on my lips. These three shades I got are really beautiful and pretty. All of them are very vibrant and flattering.

Mightiest Maraschino is a nice everyday vibrant red color

Plushest Punch is a cool dark pink with slightly magenta tone

Heftiest Hibiscus is a beautiful bright coral


Honestly I love the formula because the pigment is like a Lipstick but it feels moisturizing and not drying my lips. The colour is buildable and stain on my lips so sometimes I don't really need a quick touch up. 

I think the price is worth the quality, the packaging is also looks fun and not boring like usual Clinique's packaging, lol. If you're looking for a HG tinted lip balm or moisturizing lipstick, you must check this out. :)

The colors are actually a lot stronger than I am used to when I see lip balms but they are really pretty and I wish they would offer such a choice where I live. I really want to get into liptints more these days but it's a bit of a challenge here... ;n;
