Clinique Chubby Stick Trio

Clinique Chubby Stick TrioThe latest travel-exclusive product from Clinique is a set containing three shades of its Chubby Stick Moisturising Lip Colour Balm. The Clinique Chubby Stick Trio is a box containing individually-packaged Chubby Sticks in Mega Melon (04), Woppin’ Watermelon (06) and Super Strawberry (07).

Mega Melon is a very pretty coral shade, while Woppin’ Watermelon is a bright pink and Super Strawberry a dusty rose colour. The first is the most pigmented out of the three, while Woppin’ Watermelon has the least pigment and took the most effort (and swipes on my arm!) to show the colour off properly. It is important to remember that these are lip balms and not glosses or lipsticks.

According to Clinique, the formula has shea butter, mango seed butter and jojoba seed oil to leave lips soft and supple. In my experience (I had two of them before getting this set) they are indeed moisturising, but again not the best product if you are looking for lots of colour.

I like Chubby Sticks for two reasons: they are a good lip balm formula that doesn’t come in a pot, thus preventing me from getting my fingers dirty during the day; and they feature a nice twist-up action mechanism that does away with the need of sharpening like other pencil-like products, making them practical to have on the go.

While I did ask how much this set costs at Gatwick airport, I am ashamed to confess I don’t remember the exact price! I know it’s around £29 (about $45), which makes it a good deal as each Chubby Stick retails for £15 ($23) in the UK.
