Over delicious cocktails like a watermelon caipirinha and a strawberry mojito, our friends at Clinique hosted a party to introduce the new Chubby Stick and Bottom Lash Mascara to online journalists last week. Of course, the products are fab, but with the help of the colorfully named drinks and edible treats from chef extraordinaire David Burke, these two introductions are now two of my faves.
Chubby Stick ($15) – The original made the counter rounds about 10 years ago – but the new one is a moisturizing lip color balm that features a new twist up and down mechanism. No sharpening required. Available in eight shades – including Mega Melon, Super Strawberry and Whole Lotta Honey – Chubby Stick provides a sheer hint of lip color, plus protection and moisturization.
Bottom Lash Mascara ($10) – This must have been an aha moment when somebody said, “let’s create a mascara that is just for bottom lashes!” It may just feature the cutest, little makeup brush you’ve ever seen. With a completely self explanatory name, this is a mascara designed especially for the bottom eye lashes. And even more important – the formula is said to last up to 24-hours without smudging, smearing or flaking, thanks to new thermal technology. To remove, simply use a cotton pad soaked with warm water. Girls, you need this. Once you starting using it, you will wonder how you ever lived without it!
