As both a bonafide beauty product addict and a fan of the existing Clinique Chubby Stick ranges I’d been avidly awaiting the launch of their new Cheek Colour Balm and the Baby Tint Moisturising Lip Colours.
So to arrive home from holiday and find a colourful package awaiting my return really helped to take the sting out of the holiday being over. Thank you Clinique!
Starting with cheeks, the four shades deliver a subtle glide of sheer colour and that elusive glow factor that I think only comes with a cream blush formulation.
Having been busy daubing myself with these all in the name of research its safe to say I’ve found the perfect set of seasonal blushes. Currently prolonging the holiday glow is Robust Rhubarb, Amp’d Up Apple has beed designated for autumn, Roly Poly Rosy will be worn in winter and Plumped Up Peony is set aside for spring.
Top row L : R – Plumped Up Peony, Roly Poly Rosy, Amp’d Up Apple and Robust Rhubarb // Bottom row L : R – Flowering Freesia, Poppin’ Poppy, Budding Blossom and Coming Up Rosy
Onto the new Baby Tint lip shades. Delivering moisture with a fusion of Vitamin C, shea butter, mango seed butter and jojoba seed oil, the colour of these clever sticks adapts differently according to the wearer. Flowering Freesia and Budding Blossom turn out to be both quite similar on me, the deeper purple of the two being a little more intense.
My favourites are Poppin’ Poppy and Coming Up Rosy – both beautiful shades for warmer days and now constant fixtures in my makeup bag. I highly recommend trying these out to find your goto glow and don’t just buy one…they look so pretty lined up on display together!
