Newbies: Clinique Chubby Stick Intense and Chubby Stick Shadow Tint for Eyes

Thu, 27 June 2013 8:07AM

I don’t think I need to rave about how much I love Clinique Chubbies. But I will anyway because I really do adore each and every aspect of them. From the fun jumbo-sized crayon barrel (it slots right into my makeup bag and spare pockets) to the smooth, creamy texture which not only makes my lips look good – cue a a burst of fresh, juicy colour – but also feel good, too, thanks to the uber-hydrating ingredients like shea butter, mango seed butter and jojoba seed oil.


So as you can imagine, here at PRIMPED we were more than a little excited to hear that Chubbies were about to get a whole lot more intense. That’s right, Primpers, Clinique have released the Chubby Stick Intense Moisturising Lip Colour Balm, with the new formula enriched with more pigment for a highly saturated finish, but still starring the original nourishing ingredients to keep your pout pampered throughout the day and night.

Application and the longevity factor are still much the same; they are buildable, working up from a subtle stain to a full-blown wash of pigment with a balm-like finish. There are also eight new shades available, from a creamy neutral (Curviest Caramel) to gorgeous berry and reds, including Heftiest Hibiscus, a vibrant orange-red coral.

In other exciting Chubby news, meet the new Chubby Stick Shadow Tint for Eyes:


Encased in the same crayon-like case, the Shadow Tint for Eyes has a soft, creamy formula enriched with vitamin E, and provides a wash of sheer, yet buildable colour. Personally, what I love most is how it has made applying colour on my lids a cinch, particularly for when I don’t have hours to spend in front of the mirror – they’re ideal for the girl on the go.

The wind-up tube glides on like a dream over the lids, and while I could rave about all of the 12 colours available, ranging from soft nudes to pink, greens and purple, I have to give special mention to Ample Amber, a shimmering bronze and Whomping Willow, a rich, deep gold. While you can wear them as a swipe of liner, they’re also perfect for creating a spectrum of colour combinations by layering different shades, or using more than one Chubby to create a variation on a traditional smoky eye. The secret is to use an eyeshadow brush to blend the colours before they set, because once they do, they set in for the long run.

Details: The Clinique Chubby Stick Intense Moisturising Lip Colour Balm, $35, and the Chubby Stick Shadow Tint for Eyes, $35, are available from June 30th from department stores.

Tell me, Primpers, have you heard about the new Chubbies?

Do you love the original formulas?

Keen to try the new Chubby for Eyes?

    What…… they went and made the chubby stick for lips even better……A chubby stick for eyes, that’s clever. I’m lovin’ the look of the big blue.

    Would love to try these! I’m always on the lookout for a creamy shadow that doesn’t crease – will have to try whomping willow just for the Harry Potter reference!

    Some gorgeous colours, I’ve not tried Chubbies for eye’s, have not even tried Chubbies for lips, I’m feeling deprived.

  • Posted by: Claire88 Master Fan // Thu, 27 June 2013 10:36pm

    I would love to try the Clinique Chubbies for eyes , the colors look great!
    I haven’t tried the Clinique Chubbies for lips either , but the improved formula might entice me to give them go.

  • Posted by: PrettyPrincess Master Fan // Thu, 27 June 2013 11:29pm

    I have heard some good things about these, if Clinique have a gwp I might cave!

    I’ve tried the chubby stick original and I really liked it however I felt $35 is a bit overpriced for what it is. I do think that the chubbies for eyes is an excellent idea! I would really love to try them, they sound like fun to use :)

    How do these compare to YSL Rouge Volupte Shine?

  • Posted by: p3charmed Master Fan // Sun, 30 June 2013 04:12pm

    Haven’t heard of the new formula or tried the original, but they both look amazing and I want :)

    The Chubby Stick Shadow Tint For Eyes has not been released. They should’ve been released today the 7th of July but now it’s been pushed back again to the middle of the month.

    I love the new Chubby for Eyes, these looks amazing, this would be so easy to apply. I definitely want to try this :)

    I tried a couple of the lip chubbies at a shop, but couldn’t find a shade to suit. Was disappointing as the felt so nice on the lip. I love the idea of the eye ones though – am a massive eye makeup person

  • Posted by: nita01 Master Fan // Tue, 9 July 2013 08:49pm

    I love the new Chubbies for eyes…they have an amazing array of shades to choose from. I wish I could afford one in every colour.

  • Posted by: Sparkles17 Master Fan // Tue, 16 July 2013 11:15am

    Some lovely shades will certainly give them a try love Clinique products they are always kind to my skin!.

    Heard of the chubbies but haven’t used them yet. I like the Crayon design. The colours all look amazing. I like the Chubby stick for eyes. I tried it in store and it glides on so smoothly and stays really well.

  • Posted by: roxymisha Master Fan // Mon, 21 October 2013 07:25pm

    Have to check these out – often forget when I am near a Clinique counter!

  • Posted by: lovetoplay Master Fan // Tue, 22 October 2013 02:13pm
