Clinique Chubby Stick Chunky Cherry - Swatch and Review


Clinique Chubby Stick Chunky Cherry

     Since my last post on the Chubby Stick I have been in a constant state of inner battle with myself. Did I get it right? Is the Revlon one really better? How about the Lakme one? Oh Damn! What if I got it wrong?!? Hey Clinique is a well respected brand....maybe....could be.....hmmm....what.....zoinks!!! So when I started to pen this post I was like I'm going to try them all out at the same time and figure out which one is actually better and lay my uncertainties to rest. Right or wrong I'm gonna figure this out. 

    I picked up the 2 Lakme pop tints recently especially since there was an offer on them. There was about a 100 bucks off and I got them from New U. Since Revlon ones are for 650 I had no issues paying 700 a piece for these. Do check out your Lakme counter to see if this offer is valid there. So after having all of them in my kitty I'm going to do a comparison post along with the Chubby Stick review side by side.

     Let me start by comparing the Lakme and Clinique one. The former is supposed to be a tint and the latter is supposed to be a balm. So I decode that as the first being more like a lippy and the second being....well....a balm :P Considering them as apples and oranges I'm gonna throw Lakme out of this mix. Phew! One down....another to go.

     Ok now coming to a face off between Revlon and Clinique. When I wore Revlon my lips felt comfortable. I did not feel like I had something on...they just felt nice. It was not too moisturized but decent enough and it felt right. The color does not move around on your lips and gives them proper coverage at all times. Plus as they are a stain lasting power is much greater and I don't get the whole patchy look after an eating session. Phew! Ok Revlon = Good! BTW all 3 mentioned brands look the same when you swatch it on the back of your hand. On the lips they are a whole different ballgame.

     Coming to the Clinique one. My lips looked more "oily" when I put this on. So for a second I was like oh I was wrong.....but then I realized that my lips didn't feel comfortable in them. By that I mean I could feel a light stretch sort of feeling on the outer part of both my lips when I had this on. I'm having a little bit of dry lips at present. They looked better moisturized but did not feel so. Also I noticed that the color moves around and it ends up looking patchy. I know they are not a stain and it is unfair to compare this quality but I just want to put it out there for you. They don't completely survive an eating session and disappear from the middle of the lips.

     If you compare the intense version with the regular one, the latter is actually more comfortable to wear on the lips. Feels more moisturizing. I read some review where the blogger said she felt her lips felt well moisturized the next day even but I did not have the pleasure of experiencing that. That is to say it didn't work on me that way. Plus I didn't like the patchy look it gets when you rub your lips. The product does not distribute evenly when you rub the lips together or pat them together. Color lifts up from places and other areas end up looking darker. Only swiping it with the crayon again brings in the evenness.

     I'm having difficulty in describing the color of Chunky Cherry perfectly for you. It is a sheer pink shade but I find a tone to orange in it. And at times it looks like an orange toned red to me. These were my observation for the color swatched at the back of my hand. On the lips it looks like a very nice sheer red.

     In conclusion,  I would say that if do want to buy this brand then choose the intense if you are looking for color and the regular one if you want moisturization. But Revlon costs much less and has better qualities overall giving you a wide range of color choice. Someone would argue that Clinique has more color choices but I beg to differ. I saw a couple of swatches online where a couple of shades from the regular line were swatched side by side and some of the colors looked almost identical with a very slight difference.

     That wraps up another review on these Chubby Sticks. I don't know why I have gotten fixated to the Revlon ones. If you guys feel differently then do let me know. Have you tried any? Is there some other product that you feel is better than these? Waiting to hear from you. Till next time - Ciao!
