What’s better than a new lip wardrobe to start off the new year? I could not have been more excited to get my hands on Clinique’s new Chubby Stick Intense set, which is now everywhere : on my vanity, in my handbags, strewn across my work desk, even a spare stick or two stashed in my favorite coat pockets. With 8 colors running the gamut from a pretty dusky nude (Curviest Caramel) to a rich wine purple (Grandest Grape), and a a few vibrant pinks, reds and corals in between, there’s something in the set for practically any makeup mood I could be in. But what I love best about these is that at they also double as lip balms — packed with mango and shea butters that help nourish, soften, and smooth lips. The light, creamy texture stays moist on the lips throughout the day and the rich color payoff doesn’t fade even after hours. Users of the original Chubby Sticks will notice that the Intense set is much more pigmented and just one swipe is enough to give your lips that rich pop of juicy color. I would also particularly recommend this product for winter months when my lips are always cracked and normal lipsticks just accentuate the dryness. The Intense Chubby Sticks, on the other hand, immediately help smooth the surface and provide a light glossy finish that hides any hint of wintery patches. My favorite shades? Curviest Caramel for anytime wear, Chunkiest Chili for day or night red, and Roomiest Rose to bright a complexion. $16 each at Nordstrom or wherever Clinique is sold.
