Clinique Chubby Sticks are a force to be reckoned with -there’s the originals, the intense, eyes and even for cheeks (more on these soon). But today I’m taking a look at the latest to join the lip gang – the Clinique Baby Tint shades. Sheer colours with a ‘hefty dose of moisture’ as they’re billed. Basically, they’re a little more sheer than the original shades on offer. In four shades… let’s take a look…
Now, I did actually do full lip swatches for these – but they’re so sheer they basically looked the same and I decided it was better to show the colour difference on arm swatches instead. The shade difference between each of them is very subtle, as the colour overall is subtle as the name suggests – it’s just meant to be a tint.
Really, it’s just the tone of the tine that varies between orange tones, red toned, purple toned or pink toned. The shades, left to right are Poppin Poppy, Coming Up Rosey, Flowering Fressia and Budding Blossom. With the shades of each being orange, red, purple and pink respectively. Of course, as the tint is subtle you won’t have pure lilac/orange etc lips – these really are lip colours for those who are fearful of colour and just want the faintest hint with some moisture.
In all honestly, the difference between these and the original which are also quite subtle tints. But these are really nice shades and I have found myself reaching for Poppin Poppy and Coming Up Rosey a lot for a day time lip shade lately.
What do you think – are you a fan of Clinique Chubby Sticks or are you over the whole crayon of colour thing?
