PRODUCT: Clinique Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm
Winter is an un-glamorous time for lips. The unfortunate combination of wind, frigid temperatures, and dehydrating indoor heat makes your lips vulnerable to becoming chapped and cracked. Sales of Vaseline, Aquafor, and Chapstick skyrocket as women (and men) try desperately to protect their precious pouts from the elements.
Thanks to Clinique, there is now a much more colourful way to pamper dry lips. Clinique Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm ($15) looks like a giant crayon, but is actually a light gloss that soothes lips while leaving behind a hint of colour. Don't be fooled by this product's playful packaging, as it contains seriously moisturizing and nourishing ingredients, such as mango seed butter, shea butter, jojoba oil, and antioxidants. This balm glides on smoothly and offers sheer but buildable colour and coverage. Chubby Stick's sleek applicator allows you to line and fill in your lips effortlessly, while its multi-directional twist bottom exposes more or less of the product, freeing you from the need to sharpen the tip.
Chubby Sticks come in eight pretty shades: Chunky Cherry, Fuller Fig, Graped-up, Mega Melon, Richer Raisin, Super Strawberry, Whole Lotta Honey, Woppin' Watermelon. This new Clinique gem is fragrance-free, allergy tested, and dermatologist tested.
Clinique Chubby Stick is more fun to apply and wear than traditional balms, and you'll look much more chic pulling one out of your purse than digging your finger in a tub of petroleum jelly!
