I'm in love. I've seen the press release and drooled, I saw blog posts and drooled some more and then I was sent my own to try and it was a fabby little gift set thing with six of the Chubby Sticks in it and a load of pink Clinique pencils. Yay!
So what are Chubby Sticks?
Well essentially they are a moisturizing lip colour balm and that's their full name, Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm. A sheer hint of colour and sheen in a big chubby pencil, much chubbier than I had imagined actually. Highly moisturising with butters, oils, antioxidants. Whats more the base simply twists up so theres no sharpening required on these babies and they are available in 8 shades.
So lets have a look at them in a bit more detail.
The shades I have are all swatched below:
Top to Bottom: Chunky Cherry, Graped Up, Mega Melon, Richer Raisin, Woppin' Watermelon and Whole Lotta Honey.
And swatched on lips in the same order, starting with Chunky Cherry.
Whole Lotta Honey
So there we have it. In my opinion these are absolute must haves, at least one. I will off to buy Super Strawberry as soon as poss as I've fallen in love with that one and I don't have it. My faves from the ones I was sent are Graped Up and Chunky Cherry but really they are all gorgeous. They feel fab on as well, not glossy or gloopy or thick, just light and moisturising and well, balm like! Very very highly recommended indeed.
These retail at £14, are available now and from all the usual places. I'm loving http://www.debenhams.com/ right now though as at the time of writing they are reduced to £12.60 in the sale.
