Clinique Chubby Stick Baby Tint Moisturising Lip Colour Balm
Chunky & Funky!
I adore these chunky crayon type lip products because I find them much easier to apply and I also love the funkiness of the design.
These glide on lovely and are enough to brighten up any dull day.

Pretty subtle colour and super soft lips
I have this is Flowering Freesia, a lovely sheer purple colour.
First of all the packaging is neat and pretty, its really light and due to the twist up mechanism its completely mess free.
Colour wise, its very sheer, but retains the purple sheen I was hoping for, with little hints of pink. Its a lovely alternative to nude lipstick, which means I wear this a lot during the day time. I've also worn a light slick of this over other colours and its really enhanced the look of them, like an extra dimension of glossy colour rather than changing the original.
Being a balm, it keeps your lips lovely and soft. Some glosses can dry your lips out, but not this one.
I'm really happy with this product, and am definitely looking at trying the rest of the collection.

Subtle pretty shades
I got these in 3 out of the 4 colours- the apricot and 2 pink shades. Unlike the other chubby sticks, these tints are a more matte and waxy on the skin. They apply easily and evenly, don't bleed and can be built up to a stronger effect. After a minute or so the colour develops to a pretty subtle shade that looks incredibly natural and perfect for a low key look, or if you are wearing stronger eye make up.
As someone with dry lips, I feel these would be perfect for the summer time when my lips generally tend to more supple, but now in the cold weather I find these baby tints need a thin layer of a lip balm below to keep my lips properly hydrated for long. Using this method I get a 3-4 hrs of good looking lips, and of course being that these are tints, they wear off evenly. The colours are very pretty and would suit many skin tones. People who don't suffer with lip dryness would absolutely love these.
