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.
