Clinique Chubby Stick Shadow Tint For Eyes: Bountiful Beige and Portly Plum Review, Pics, Swatches

Launching on February 15th, Clinique’s Chubby Sticks for Eyes look set to be every bit as wildly popular as their lip products. They’re incredibly appealing, with their twist-up chunky crayon shape and pretty colours, and there are 12 to choose from, with a good selection of neutrals, pastels and deeper, moodier hues. I was given Portly Plum and Bountiful Beige to play with ahead of the launch date.

Both shades give a soft, semi-sheer wash of colour all over the lid – don’t be worrying about precision here, just draw it on and smudge it out with your finger. Simples! With their soft and creamy textures, they glide on and blend like a dream. The shades are designed to be worn alone or together, and you can layer ‘em up for a more dramatic finish if you’d like.

Best of all, they’re absolutely foolproof - they’ve really streamlined my routine, saving me precious minutes in the morning. They’re perfect for on-the-go or when you’re in a rush, and they last without creasing throughout the working day.

Pricewise, they’re not the cheapest at €22 but, like the Chubby lips, I’d say they’ll last forever. Whopping Willow – a gorgeous khaki shade – and Ample Amber are the next two on my list. What do you think, will you be checking them out?

Gemma Turner said...

I think they're such a good idea... but, I can't help thinking it's a bit expensive for just one colour? i personally love to use 2 or 3 shades on my eyes so it'd be expensive to have to buy more than one. They look lovely on you though :) xx

I've been wanting to try Chubby sticks forever, and now they come in eyeshadow version as well? I'm sold! I'm addicted to purple eyeshadows, and this one looks really good. And if they don't crease, it's even better! I can't wait for the release! I'm so glad I've discovered your amazing and inspiring blog! I'm happy to be your new follower :)

Have a lovely afternoon!
