Due to a variety of things (weather, surgery, not drinking enough water for a start) my lips are in an awful condition. I mean diabolical. I’ve been gently scrubbing, moisturising, leaving well alone, trying every product I have at my disposal, but yet they still fail to improve…as such I’m bringing you this post rather late to the party, and also without lip swatches…but you know there comes a point in time where you just have to get on with it and blog regardless!

So then, Chubby Stick Intense Moisturizing Lip Colour Balms are not unlike the original and much loved Chubby Sticks which I have blogged about extensively. The main difference is depth of colour, hence the inclusion of “Intense” in the name. Whereas the original Chubby Stick range offers a sheer, and soft, but still obvious colour on the lips, the Chubby Stick Intense  range offer essentially a more lipstick-like look while still infused with shea butter, mango seed butter and jojoba seed oil for the moisturising balm effect.

There are eight shades in the range and I have two. Plushest Punch and Chunkiest Chilli.

I’ve already mentioned I don’t have lip swatches of these for you, but wrist swatches I can do. Chunkiest Chilli on the left and Plushest Punch on the right.

I think you can see how rich the colour is, and it’s worth mentioning that I find these to be buildable on the lips so you can sheer them out or build them up with great ease and of course the formula is tried and tested and still and beautiful as ever.

Now I must just address one thing that you may think needs explaining, and that is if they are so moisturising, why aren’t I showing lip swatches and why aren’t they fixing my dry lips? All I can say on this is that as previously mentioned, nothing is fixing my lips at the moment, not even my most intensive lip treatments, so I can’t blame Chubby Sticks for not working on me at the moment! I’m drinking more water at the moment and hoping that things improve soon! Prior to the extreme dry lips I’m currently suffering from I found these to be comfortable and light on the lips but also moisturising, much like the original chubby sticks.

If you loved the original Chubby Sticks, you WILL love these.

Also, must share this pic of the very very cute macaroons/macarons I received as they were so sweet and so yummy!

Chubby Stick Intense Moisturising Lip Colour Balms are £16.00 each.

    Charlie, sorry to hear about your lips. Unfortunately I was going through the same ordeal with mine last year (I discovered that it must be something to do with food allergies), but found that not wearing any lip products for a few months helped the most(I know, it sounds really horrible for a makeup fiend). Also thick layers of Aquaphor layered with jojoba oil underneath. I also discovered Jack Black lip balm and it works really well for me. But my lips are still fussy and what other people might find moisturizing, mine don’t.
    I’m gonna have to check out those sticks, thanks for the review!

      Aw thanks so much for this, I have been laying off all lip products as well because they all make my lips look horrible but will have a look around for your other suggestions!
      Thank you.

      If those don’t work, try products with lanolin, I use Lanolips balm, but the nipple cream (sic!) called Lanisoh is (as I heard) good too. Good luck!

    • Charlie says:

      Ah I have Lanoplips, Dr Lipp and Lanisoh here, all to no avail sadly!

    I’m currently suffering lip problems as well but I’ve managed to identify the culprit. It’s Avon lipstick! Since times immemorial these have been giving me allergic reactions which manifest themself as cracking and peeling lips. I stopped using them for years and I hoped they;d changed the formula but apparently they didn’t.

    As for the Chubby Sticks intense they’ve just landed on my wishlist but Clinique Poland is so slow at introducing all the novelties so I suppose I’ll have to wait months for these!

    • Charlie says:

      Yes I have been wondering if this is a reaction to something I used…. I’m just laying off everything for a while sadly. I hope you get your Chubby Sticks soon! x

    I am really sorry to hear about your lip woes. I have a theory that lip balms only work for so long and then something seems to turn them into hindrances rather than helpers. At the moment the Dr.Lipp Nipple Balm is working for me, but I do need to lay off for a bit and try another sort of in rotation. Hope that it gets sorted for you. xx

    • Charlie says:

      I have often thought similar, I’ve never been completely convinced that lip balms, any of them, work. Although I have had successes in the past with a few, they don’t seem to be working with this current state of affairs! x
