Look at me embarking into the land of the bold and embracing all things bright and beautiful. I’ve had my heart set on getting a Clinique Chubby Stick Intense since they were first released as to me, they are the trend setters. The starters of the pack and the leaders when it comes to lip pencils these Clinique sticks tick all the boxes for me. I’ve got a couple of the original Chubby Sticks (which FYI I adore) and it was only a matter of time before one of the new intense colours worked their way into my makeup collection. Quick to apply leaving behind a slick of intense colour on your lips, you really can’t go wrong with these wonder pencils.
When swatching my way through all the intense Chubby Sticks on offer it’s pretty impossible not to go for something that packs a bit of a punch. Whether it be a purple toned grape, bold pink or coral red, there is something to match your bold toned desires. Although a soft nude pink will be reached for everyday, you can’t go wrong with a bold shade once in a while. Heftiest Hibiscus is a unique orange red that can be saved for a special occasion or worn throughout the day for a more vampier look. For something so bold I don’t find that this transfers all over my teeth and I get a decent number of hours ware time from it.
With the moisture and colour all rolled into one the intense pigmentation doesn’t end up drying out your lips. Leaving behind a soft glossy finish all you need is one of these pencils popped into your handbag and you are ready for the day and any touchups. No sharpener required just pop the cap back on and off you go. Evenings, dinners or even at 7am in the morning this has quickly become a staple Autumn colour for me.
