Clinique revolutionized the beauty landscape with the introduction of Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Colour Balms and now they’re shaking things up again. The new Clinique Chubby Stick Cheek Colour Balm is a perfect addition to the Chubby Stick lineup (which also includes Chubby Stick Eye Shadow Tint for Eyes). Makeup couldn’t be easier!
I remember the day I tried my first Chubby Stick Lip Balm (review) and thinking “this is brilliant!”. And to be honest, my reaction was along the same lines when I first saw the Chubby Stick Cheek Colour Balm. I love the ease and convenience of a cream blush in a crayon. No guesswork—the round-tip of the crayon glides on and deposits the blush color exactly where you want it. Once you’ve applied it, you can blend in with fingertips, a brush or a sponge. My preference is to just use my fingers, as I do with cream blush.
The Chubby Stick Cheek Colour Balm is nice, too. You can build color, without worrying that it will be too much. On initial application, the color is sheer and buildable. In the shades I tested, I didn’t have one incident where I felt that I overapplied or that there was a learning curve. The color was beautiful and natural looking; this is Clinique after all. The formula is also oil-free, sweat, humidity and water-resistant.
Chubby Stick Cheek Colour Balms come in four shades: Amp’d Up Apple, Plumped Up Peony, Robust Rhubarb and Roly Poly Rosie (my favorite shade). I’m fairly sure if you try one, you’re going to want them all–don’t say I didn’t warn you!
Clinique Chubby Stick Cheek Colour Balms ($21) are available now in department stores and online at Nordstrom, Sephora, Neiman Marcus, Saks and at Clinique.com. Are you a fan of Chubby Sticks? Let me know in the comments!
