Last night I was invited to visit the London Clinique HQ to check out their super cute candy store! The event was to introduce the newest member to the Chubby Stick collection; the Clinique Chubby Stick Shadow Tint for Eyes! All over the world, Clinique have won people’s hearts with their amazing Chubby Stick lip products (you can read my reviews on the popular Chubby Stick lip products here and here) and now they are expanding the line with eye candy; check out the Clinique Candy Store…
The candy store was filled with lots of sweets and cute milkshakes for us to indulge in whilst we got the chance to check out their brand new Chubby Sticks Shadow Tint for Eyes! Just like the famous Chubby Stick lipsticks; these Shadow Sticks have a lovely creamy formula that deliver a pretty wash of sheer, build able, long-wearing colour for your lids!
There are twelve super-wearable shades in the collection ranging from nudes to pinks, to violets and blues. The sticks are 100% fragrance free and have the same easy crayon-like barrel design to make on-the-go application a breeze.
Shades in the collection are: Bountiful Beige, Lots O’Latte, Fuller Fudge, Ample Amber, Whopping Willow, Portly Plum, Pink & Plenty, Curvaceous Coal, Lavish Lilac, Big Blue, Mighty Moss and Massive Midnight. Here are some pretty shades swatched on the back of my hand. The Chubby Shadow Sticks glide on smoothly because of their creamy formula but it does set into a more powdery finish that they say will stay put on your lids all day without creasing.
Bountiful Beige is definitely one of my favourites. It is a lovely shimmery champagne shade that I would use all over the lid on it’s own for a simple eye popping look, or I’d use it as a highlighter underneath my brows. Some others shades that caught my eye were; Whopping Willow, Lots O’Latte, Fuller Fudge and Massive Midnight; which I think will provide a great base for a dark smokey eye look.
When I left the event I got given a lovely goodie bag filled with candy (nom nom…) and two of the new Chubby Sticks Shadow Tint for Eyes for me to play with at home. I can’t wait to try them to see if they are as long-lasting as they promise.
The new Clinique Chubby Stick Shadow Tint for Eyes (£16/€22) will be available nationwide at Clinique counters and online at www.clinique.co.uk from 15th February 2013.
What do you think; do you like the idea of these crayon-like Chubby Sticks for your eyes?
