LIP SET WEEK | Clinique Chubby Colour & Shine

The product: Clinique Chubby Colour & Shine Set

It’s no secret that I’m in love with Clinique’s Chubby Stick Moisturizing Colour Lip Balm (their full name. Isn’t it intimidating?) I’ve talked about them before - or, perhaps more accurately, I’ve talked about the them a lot already. We first reviewed Clinique’s Chubby Sticks last December (when they were revamped and relaunched), went on to add the ingredients, and featured them in this year’s Summery Summary.

It’s been almost an entire year (!!!), and I think it’s safe to say that I’m still in love with the Chubby Sticks. Which, for the record, is phenomenal – I fall in love with new products all the time, but it’s so rare that one product will stay in the rotation for any more than a season. But I’m still crazy for these adorable, crayon-y balms, and I don’t think it’s a love that’s going away anytime soon!

Thankfully, Clinique included my favourite shade in this set. I haven’t tried them all, but I loved Super Strawberry when I first got it – enough so that I didn’t feel the need to try the rest of them, I guess!

Even after swatching and wearing around the other three, Super Strawberry‘s still my fave. It’s the perfect pop of colour; bright enough to really pick up my complexion, but sheer enough to still look really natural and low-key. It transitioned really well from winter into summer (and then back again), which is always the mark of a good MLBB shade!

Swatched L-R: 02 Whole Lotta Honey, 04 Mega Melon, 06 Whoppin’ Watermelon, 07 Super Strawberry

Blended out: Whole Lotta Honey, Mega Melon, Whoppin’ Watermelon, Super Strawberry

The shades

Whoppin’ Watermelon is a pretty, pastel pink, and surprisingly, it has enough pigment to tone down my natural lip colour a bit. Super Strawberry is my go-to natural lip shade; it’s a really well-balanced medium berry-pink with just the right amounts of cool and warm. Mega Melon is a sheer melon-y shade with quite a bit more shimmer than the others. Whole Lotta Honey is a muted, medium brown with enough red undertones to keep from washing you out.

Is it giftable?

Absolutely! The Colour & Shine set retails for $38.50 CAD, and comes with four Chubby Sticks in a silver pouch. Because they’re so sheer, it means that they’re going to work on any (literally, any) skintone, which is always a nice thing to keep in mind when you’re gift-giving. I love that they’re paraben- and scent-free, too; I’m always in fear of being gifted a lovely lip product that I can’t use because of a scent!

Of course, the perfect person to get this set for? That would be you. I’m convinced that every beauty junkie ought to try the Chubby line at least once, and, well, isn’t this just the most perfect way to do it?

(The crayon-y pencils are even cuter in this gift set. Even cuter. They’re the same width, but are about a centimeter shorter. Adorable!)

Availability: Canadians, this set is exclusive to Shopper’s and Murale; Americans, I think you can get yours at Macy’s; UK girls, keep an eye out at Harrod’s, Selfidges, and Clinique – looks like they’re all sold out online, though (sorry I didn’t get to the set sooner!)

  4. I said I was going to try these Chubby sticks when they came out but never did. Might have to go to Shoppers this weekend… :D

  5. So so perfect. I've never been terribly into Clinique, and I've been resisting the allure of the wonderful crayon shaped for some odd reason. I think I may need one of these.

    My friend has Whole Lotta Honey and it looks amazing on her. It's perfect, cause she's a high school senior she wants to look more natural.

    hmmm… i was JUST in SDM!

  8. Whole Lotta Honey is my fave nude right now. I love how nice these feel. It's tempting to get the whole box but none of my other lippies would get any play if I got more chubby sticks!

  9. Ooh! I like sheep lippies~ these def. look like ones I've love to try.

  11. [...] finishes and high pigment. For a muggle, though? Perhaps it would be best to hold off. Pick up a Colour & Shine set for them instead, [...]

  12. :o You have not?! We must fix this! They're SUCH a lovely product.

  13. It's quite pigmented on me, too (surprisingly)! Perhaps I should have posted bare lip swatches for comparison :P It really takes down my natural lip colour, which is rare – and a very, very nice change!

  14. Lol!! I hope he does ^.^

  15. I'm guessing only their Beauty Boutiques w/ Clinique (or Murale stores) would have them, but *crossing fingers* and hoping that that means yours will!

  16. You totally do, Jessica! I bet something like Fuller Fig or Chunky Cherry would look amazing on you ;)

  17. Yes! These are perfect for that natural-lip look.

  18. LOL! Well – good reason to go back, yeah? ;)

  19. Whoo! Another Chubby Stick lover!! *cheering*

    I know what you mean, though – I barely touch my other tinted balms anymore >.<

  20. Sheep lippies, eh? ;)

  21. Aww, it's not too late! They're still a good buy – and I don't think Sephora carried the set, anyways :)

  22. How gorgeous, I'll be picking Super Strawberry next time I'm online shopping on Clinique!

  24. [...] not entirely sure what I have on my lips, but Burt’s Bees Pink Blossom (review) or one of these Clinique Chubby Sticks would be my best guess – I’ve been reaching for both quite a lot [...]
