I’m a big fan of all the Clinique Chubby Stick lip products so couldn’t wait to try out the brand new Chubby Sticks for eyes!
There are twelve incredible looking colours in the range and essentially these are a sort of cream eyeshadow in pencil form which I find dries down a little to a powder- ish finish.
On me I don’t need a primer, but if you have particularly oily eyelids I would recommend you do use a primer.
The colours I have have, Whopping Willow and Lots’o Latte are both lovely. I wasn’t thinking I’d like Whopping Willow, a green based shade but I absolutely love it!
Lots o’ Latte is the top Swatch and Whopping Willow, the bottom.
In terms of application, although the pencil format is very convenient and quick. I struggle a little with my eye shape to fit the large rounded tip and get any kind of precision. I tend to swipe it on and then try to gently blend with my finger so the edges are where I want them to be. But other than that, it’s a breeze and they are quite buildable from a nice sheer wash to a good deep colour as shown in the hand swatches.
Anyway, here’s how Whopping Willow looks on me!
I just love the colour so much and the formula suits me very well so generally speaking its a huge thumbs up, I’d personally just like the tip to be a little pointier for ease of application on my eyes. The end of them is wider than my mobile lid, meaning I cover more than I’d like to when I apply. But they are very easy to blend so it’s not that much of a problem really.
The Chubby Sticks for Eyes are £16 each and as I say, come in twelve shades… I’m eyeing up Massive Midnight which looks gorgeous!
