We all love Revlon lip balms a lot these days but I will be reviewing Clinique Chubby Stick Intense for next few days, they are not latest launch but brand keeps adding shades every now and then. This is from their initial launch of intense range and the shade am sharing today is – Mightiest Maraschino.
Size – .10 oz, Price 1050/- INR, Available Clinique stores across India or Shoppers Stop
This is what brand has to say:
What it is:
A nourishing tinted lip balm halfway between sheer and opaque.
What it does:
Soften lips with a cushion of colour that’s not quite sheer, not quite opaque—but something perfectly in between. This moisturizing balm is loaded with mango and shea butters to make dry, delicate lips feel comfortably soft and smooth.
My experience with Clinique Chubby Stick Intense Moisturising Lip Color Balm Mightiest Maraschino :
Shade – Mightiest Maraschino is described as Classic Red; it is very bright cherry red shade with strong blue undertones to it. There is very subtle satiny sheen to it which makes it look so lush and rich plus the shade is stunning on olive skin tone without much effort. I find this shade will work across skin tones without looking OTT.
Texture – Keeping in mind that these are not lipsticks but balm; they have very creamy and soft light weight texture which feels as if there is nothing on lips.
Pigmentation – This Intense Balm have semi opaque coverage, do need a little layering but the colour is gorgeously pigmented as a balm, there is just little sheerness to it if you look closely.
Staying power – I get some 2 – 3 hrs of wear with this shade and then fades evenly leaving behind a subtle red tint on my lips , after it wears off my lips are not left hydrated nor dried up ; very neutral feel I have .
Packaging – They are twist up pencils and easy to carry around, same as REVLON ones which are so travel friendly and never needs sharpening.
What I like about Clinique Chubby Stick Intense Moisturising Lip Color Balm Mightiest Maraschino:
- I love the blue toned classic cherry red shade.
- The twist up pencil which is easy to carry around and doesn’t need any sharpening.
- The creamy, easily to glide texture which is super light weight at the same time.
- It doesn’t settle in lines nor does it bleeds or fades unevenly.
What I don’t like about Clinique Chubby Stick Intense Moisturising Lip Color Balm Mightiest Maraschino:
- The colour is gorgeously pigmented but it doesn’t stay too long nor is it forgiving on chapped lips and neither superbly hydrating.
Ratings – 4/5
I adore this shade and how it looks on my olive medium to dark skin tone but the staying power is too less considering it is from intense range but for a balm it is awesome.
