Clinique Chubby Stick Intense in Curviest Caramel: A Travel Favorite5:49 AM
I've long been on a search for my perfect nude lipstick. (I thought I found the shade in Nyx's Tea Rose, but that formula can't cut it in the Philippine heat.) Along the way, I found that I prefer balmy finishes to silky/matte lipsticks, my lips being eternally dry. The glossier finishes of balms help diffuse light and hide the gross flakiness.
My first day in New York I picked up Clinique's latest offering, the Chubby Stick Intense Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm in Curviest Caramel. I've been using it everyday!
I've lost the box but the ingredients are listed as follows:
Castor Seed Oil, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Vegetable Oil, Candelilla Wax, Beeswax, Ozokerite, Shea Butter, Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil, Jojoba Seed Oil, Shea Butter Extract, Mango Seed Butter, Meadowfoam Seed Oil, Sunflower Seed Oil, Hydrogenated Olive Oil, Tocopherol, +/- Titanium Dioxide (Ci 77891), Mica, Red 7 Lake (Ci 15850), Iron Oxides (Ci 77499), Iron Oxides (Ci 77491), Yellow 5 Lake (Ci 19140), Red 22 Lake (Ci 45380), Red 30 Lake (Ci 73360), Carmine (Ci 75470), Bismuth Oxychloride (Ci 77163), Red 6 (Ci 15850), Red 33 Lake (Ci 17200), Red 28 Lake (Ci 45410), Blue 1 Lake (Ci 42090), Yellow 6 Lake (Ci 15985)
I'm impressed with the formula and absolutely love this shade. I'm not a lipstick sort of gal so I probably won't be purchasing the other shades, but there is an extensive swatch post at theNotice.
Clinique Chubby Stick Intense Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm retails for $16 / 0.10 oz at all Clinique kiosks and boutiques. In the Philippines I believe it's PhP 920.
