Newbies: Clinique Chubby Stick Moisturising Lip Colour

Mon, 11 April 2011 12:14PM

I’d like to introduce you to a good friend of mine, Primps.

I usually refer to him as The Chubsta, but in the phone book he goes by the name of Clinique Chubby Stick Moisturising Lip Colour ($35).

I’m assuming you haven’t spent much time with him before, mainly because he only arrived on our might fine planet (read: beauty counters) just yesterday, but if you have, many apologies.

Here is a recent cheeky picture of him playing around with some jelly:

And here is a more grown-up, well-behaved shot of him hanging with his brothers:

The reason why I love him so much is that his sole purpose in life is to make mine grand because he allows my lips to look good and feel amazing that the same time. What other boy does that, huh? It’s probably safe to say there are none.

But why else do I love him? Well, this is why:

  • He’s a lip colour and I love lip colours, so of course we get along.
  • He contains shea butter, mango seed butter and jojoba seed oil, which are fantastic ingredients for nourishing the lips, and as a sufferer of dry, sore lips, this pleases me greatly.
  • He knows how to deliver the perfect amount of sheer colour, without the constant need to touch ups like you do with a lipstick.
  • I can use him on my cheeks if my blush has gone walkabouts, which often happens because I’m always misplacing things.
  • He never demands to be sharpened as his wind-up bottom continually allows for more product to appear super easily (until I’ve used him all up, that is).
  • His cute-as packaging also means I’m more than a little proud to pull him out of my handbag while out in public, even though so people look at me a little odd because they think he’s a crayon. The jokes on them, though. Clearly.

Oh, and I’m best buddies with Chunky Cherry, but you’re sure to enjoy his brothers, Graped-up, Mega Melon, Super Strawberry, Fuller Fig, Woppin’ Watermelon and Richer Raisin, too. I can guarantee that each of their hues will love your lips just like Chunky Cherry loves mine.


Do you like the sound of The Chubsta?
Are you in need of a new lip hue? This one is great for winter because it gives a good dose of colour but keeps your lips nourished at the same time.

    I bought this in Tokyo over Xmas (didn’t realise they weren’t released here yet) and it is EXCELLENT. I will definitely be repurchasing. I got “Mega Melon” and it is a very good “colour / not colour” colour. Extremely hydrating. Mine is still going and I use it all the time. Fabulous packaing. I went off Clinique but this is winner.

    I must admit these do look good. I’m liking the look of the pink shade.

    I’ve seen these on American websites – they look awesome! I’d love to see an eyeliner in this kind of format; Maybelline used to have one a couple of years ago . .

    I’ve seen this in magazines and couldn’t wait to try it once it got to Australia! Definitely going to give it a go!

  • Posted by: Karen-1298334769 Master Fan // Mon, 11 April 2011 01:04pm

    These look amazing! Can’t wait to hit up Clinique on my next shopping trip!

    Loving the Chubsta, I mainly get cracked lips in winter, what a treat my lips will have this winter definitely a must have!

    Saw these at DJs the Saturday before last and I was extremely excited and then slightly dissapointed. Yes they are beautifully soft and moisturising and yes they come in great colours but the colours aren’t very pigmented which was a huge letdown. I would still use them as a tinted balm but not great if you want a real hit of colour =(

  • Posted by: Becca Master Fan // Mon, 11 April 2011 02:27pm

    Sounds great, perfect multi-use product and the colours look great!

    Love the new colors, may try it out on my next lip shopping!

  • Posted by: Julieow Master Fan // Mon, 11 April 2011 04:06pm

    Want want want! Mega Melon & Whoppin Watermelon. Holding out until there is a GWP though……….restraint!

  • Posted by: ssminnow Enthusiast // Mon, 11 April 2011 04:11pm

    These look great! I’d love to see a picture of how it looks on a set of lips! Maybe you could treat us with a photo, Cherie?

    I’ve always loved chubby lip sticks. Was so bummed when Red Earth discontinued them many years ago. I hope these Clinique ones are as good as them.

  • Posted by: MissPaigeLauren Devotee // Mon, 11 April 2011 04:25pm

    im loving the sound of chubsta!

  • Posted by: beautybee1 Master Fan // Mon, 11 April 2011 04:41pm

    A bit like crayons for lips! I’m going to love it because basically I love all lipsticks and glosses.

  • Posted by: strawbsundae Master Fan // Mon, 11 April 2011 05:03pm

    The Chubsta looks so hunky! I love the fact that this chubby stick contains so many hydrating ingredients! I’m liking the pretty red shade of Mega Melon and bright pink hue of Whooping watermelon!

    These sound AMAZING! I want one :) I love the fact that you don’t need to sharpen them and that you can use it as a cheek tint if needed (gotta love a dual purpose product!)

  • Posted by: jeffy Master Fan // Mon, 11 April 2011 11:47pm

    They look adorable and your description is making them very hard to resist!

  • Posted by: GorgeousEmeralds Master Fan // Tue, 12 April 2011 08:42am

    Chubsta sounds awsome! and looks cute too! Love the fact that they don’t need to be sharpened :)

  • Posted by: Louise-1295043242 Master Fan // Tue, 12 April 2011 09:21am

    Looks like fun! and really they should have named this Chubsta, that is a great name! the cherry looks like a great winter name -nothing like a red lip to warm up the pale winter complexion! very miss red riding hood :)

  • Posted by: p3charmed Master Fan // Tue, 12 April 2011 11:12am

    I just saw this in a shop and im in love, i want to get me one! cant decide on a shade, and i need to get something else too so i spend $60 to get the gwp :)

  • Posted by: BettyBoo Master Fan // Tue, 12 April 2011 03:51pm

    I really want one, the colours are perfect for winter !

  • Posted by: loopylexy Master Fan // Tue, 19 April 2011 01:08pm

    Cute as!! Alas, I am too poor.

  • Posted by: strawbsundae Master Fan // Thu, 21 April 2011 11:04pm

    I ended up getting my hands on the shade Fuller Fig, which is a gorgeous deep rosey shade that enhances my natural lip colour. I would def. reccomend this shade as I think it’s suitable for most skintypes. Love the moisturising properties and the cute crayon packaging.

  • Posted by: jessocialite Enthusiast // Mon, 25 April 2011 02:23pm

    I borrowed my cousins on the bus yesterday and it’s totally fabulous, just the right amount of colour, its smooth and gives the right amount of glossiness. She has the pinky watermelon one but I reckon I’ll be snapping up the strawberry.

  • Posted by: xKMS Master Fan // Mon, 25 April 2011 11:31pm

    haha i was gonna say it looks like a crayon!! i like the sound of a lip colour that isnt too full on and doesnt need the same maintenance of a lipstick.. i might check this out :)

  • Posted by: misslysie Master Fan // Thu, 19 May 2011 12:30am

    These look great. I really want to get to clinique asap.

  • Posted by: Fashionista8P Master Fan // Fri, 23 September 2011 10:10pm

  • Posted by: misschris Master Fan // Sat, 8 October 2011 03:51pm

    I have two chubbies and they never leave my bag.. That’s how much I love them, they need to be readily available at all times :)

  • Posted by: talkalot Master Fan // Sun, 14 June 2015 09:38pm

    I do like the sound of the Chubby Stick, definitely want to investigate the colours.
