Clinique Chubby Stick Baby Tint & Chubby Stick Cheek Balm Review!

clinique chubby sticks
Most of you will know by now that I am a massive fresh, bright, bold colour lover and that's why I got so excited when these beautiful creations landed on my doorstep. Clinique was the first 'real' beauty brand I ever used, my Mum and Grandma swear by it and I've always had a soft spot in my heart for it. It's great to see that their original and amazing chubby stick has evolved and beauty lovers now have an even bigger, more exciting collection. I can't wait to share this with you!

I am now the proud owner of two of the new baby tint lip balms and two of the cheek colour balms. I was always too scared to try creme cheek blushes but I'm officially hooked now I've finally got the hang of it. Let's talk about the lips first...

Clinique Chubby Stick Baby Tint in Poppin' Poppy - This is such a handbag staple for me, it's such a beautiful, natural colour - I know it doesn't look natural on the tube but it's just a tint so it's more of a light kind of lipbalm than a lipstick. It's nice to have a vibrant tint to my lips, that doesn't dry them out. I think this is a really nice transitional colour from Summer to Autumn too.

Clinique Chubby Stick Baby Tint in Coming Up Rosy - Another really cute colour, it's nicer than a normal red because it isn't as harsh as some red shades can be, it has more of a nice kind of playful tone to it. Again, this is more of a balm rather than a lipstick.

Robust Rhubarb Chubby Stick Cheek Balm - I was so excited when I saw the cheek balms, I've always dreamt of using cheek balms and nice, happy, bright, fresh creamy colours on my cheeks and now, my dream is a reality. This is so easy to use, you may have seen me use it on my Summer Get Ready With Me YouTube video - you literally rub it onto your cheeks (it feels nice and moisturising), I do it after foundation application, blend it with my fingers and tadaa, I have lovely bright, natural cheeks. Robust Rhubarb is the dream colour, it's so pretty and innocent. 

Chubby Stick Cheek Balm in Amp'd Up Apple - I think this is such a gorgeous sultry colour, it's a really nice colour for a nice bronzed, evening look. I've found that the colours stay on really well all day and they transform your look instantly, they're so easy to just draw on and blend in and you could easily use this one as more of a bronzer/contouring tool too. At £19.99 I don't think they're too expensive to say they're from such a good brand.

So as you can see from the swatches, the cheek colours are a lot more prominent than the lip tints but as mentioned, they are just gorgeous balmy lip tints with a nice hint of colour, perfect for a natural day look.

  1. Poppin' Poppy looks lovely! I love Clinique too, it was my first ever real skin care venture so I think i'll always be a bit fond of them. The Chubby Sticks are so handy and easy to use too!

    1. It's so lovely! Oh my gosh I'm the same so they always have a place in my heart! xxx

  2. Definitely want to give the blushers a go!! They look so good!

    1. It's such a yummy wearable red, most reds really aren't every day lipsticks!

  4. I'm a big fan of clinique. It's basically the only brand that doesn't irritate my eyes. While I love the look of the Cheek Balms, I must admit that I got Bourjois chubby sticks that look exactly like the ones above, but are so much cheaper..haha..

    1. Clinique is the best brand, the first brand I ever used and one of the only brands i can fully trust for naturalness and yeh, not making me itch and stuff! Ooo did you... I must check them out! x

  5. I'm not a huge fan of the chubby sticks to be honest! I am intrigued the cheek balms though, I like cream blushes though I struggle to make them work sometimes.

    1. Really! Ahwww noooo... maybe you just need to find the right colour! They are kind of like marmite, you love or hate the sheerness! I do love the cheek balms but like you, I've never really got along with cream blushes until now! I think it's because these are so easy to apply! x

  6. These sound and look amazing! I especially love the shade poppin' poppy xx


  7. Love the Coming Up Rosy shade! No denying that Clinique's chubby sticks beat drugstore ones! x


    1. It's such a nice shade!!! Oh completely, there are no equivalents!

  8. Love the shades, I really want to try the cheek balms!
