I love, love, LOVE the Clinique Chubby Sticks. They aren’t the same ones that we saw back in the 90’s, which were matte. These are more of a stick gloss. Self-sharpening and super nourishing.
The first one that I reviewed, Graped-Up, I was in LOVE with. The color was perfect!
In terms of smoothness and shine, Chunky Cherry is spot on with Graped-Up. However, what I didn’t like about Chunky Cherry was that I couldn’t get ANY color on the inner part of my lips (see lip swatch pic below). I took that pic right after I applied, so it’s not like it just wore away. I didn’t have that issue with Graped-Up. Also, when I hear “cherry” I think RED. Not super deep red, but reddish at least… this is pink. Then, as it sits on your lips, it morphs into a hyper pink. Which some people may LOVE, but I’m not really on board with that bright of a color for a stick gloss that I just want to be able to toss on during the running of my kids. This product is not crazy pigmented, but Chunky Cherry is the brightest of the shades.
Chunky Cherry will likely go back to Macy’s. The color is not a love for me. Maybe they’ll have a different shade that I can exchange it for.
Clinique Chubby Sticks retail for $15 and are available at department store counters (if they have the stock). Your best bet for getting the shade you want is to shop at online department stores, Sephora.com or Clinique.com.
