I think it's hard to feel motivated to put makeup on when you've hardly had any sleep and feel rough but if forced, which I was yesterday, I tend to choose products that are easy to apply and make a difference with minimal effort on my part. That's when chunky pencils like Clinique Chubby Sticks and Sephora Jumbo liners are particularly handy.
The three Chubby Sticks I have here are from the original line up: Whole Lotta Honey is a sheer honeyed brown, Woppin' Watermelon is a cool pink and Super Strawberry is a sheer rosy/berry shade. I have already shown my favourite of the three applied, Super Strawberry, in a recent face of the day post. Lola wondered whether this colour might be similar to Ilia Arabian Knights so I have included comparison swatches. Both are balmy and comfortable to wear but I think Arabian Knights is a little more pigmented that Super Strawberry.
I've only worn the colours individually so far, although you can experiment with layering to create different shades. I ought to do this with Woppin' Watermelon as I find this colour a little tricky to wear. I imagine it would be nice mixed with either Whole Lotta Honey or Heaping Hazelnut. I had quite a lot of fun experimenting with colours using the virtual mix & match application on the Clinique website.
Chubby Sticks cost £16 each and are available from Clinique counters, as well as online from clinique.co.uk. If you're feeling in the mood to shop today, you can get free delivery with the offer code PAYDAY.
