I’m obsessed with tinted lip balms because I’m someone that has kind of dryer skin and lips, which means traditional lipstick REALLY tends to dry out my lips. I’ve been on the unt for a good lip balm with some tint in it for a while now, and then the clouds opened up and the light shown down- enter the CHUBBY STICK!
I just want to start by saying that this post is NOT sponsored, these are products I purchased myself and I genuinely love and literally use daily.
I first discovered the Chubby Stick collection by Clinique when I went to my mom’s house and asked if I could borrow a quick swipe of lipstick. She handed me the chubby stick she had and told me to try it out. One swipe, and I was hooked instantly. I literally went right then to the store and bought two of them before proceeding with our other activities we had planned for the day, that’s how quickly I fell in love with it.
The thing I love about it is that it truly does just feel like a good chapstick, it makes your lips feel buttery soft and moisturized, it doesn’t eventually dry out, and it doesn’t leave an oily or “wet” feeling. I don’t feel the need to re-apply multiple times because my lips stay moisturized after I use it and the color holds true.
They have tons of different shades and range from a barely-there tint to full, bright color. The colors I love most are Voluptious Violet (it looks like it’ll be really dark but its a beautiful, very subtle color with just the perfect amount of pink for your lips) and Roomiest Rose. The Roomiest Rose loses points for creativity in the name (who decided “roomiest” was a good adjective for selling a makeup product?) but the color is the absolute perfect light reddish-berry shade and has been what I’ve worn in the majority of my photos lately.
These are definitely a little more of an investment than say a Burt’s Bees tinted balm, but in my opinion it is worth every penny to invest in a superior product.
