Clinique Chubby Stick Intense Review | 01 Curviest Caramel & 04 Heftiest Hibiscus

Jumbo crayon/ pencil type lip products seem to be everywhere at the moment. I recently picked up a few new ones to try "for review purposes" and the first ones in the lineup are the Clinique Chubby Stick Intense. 

I reviewed the regular Clinique Chubby Sticks a while ago (Clinique Chubby Stick Review) and I quite like those. However, I am LOVING the Clinique Chubby Stick Intense.

The Clinique Chubby Stick Intense is available in 8 colors:

Surprise surprise. After swatching all 10 colors at the Clinique counter and after a very very long deliberation, I bought the nude-ish color (01 Curviest Caramel) and the orangey color (04 Heftiest Hibiscus).

On the left: 01 Curviest Caramel. On the right: 04 Heftiest Hibiscus.

01 Curviest Caramel is a brownish dusky rosy nude and 04 Heftiest Hibiscus is a orange-tone red. 

Clinique describes the Chubby Stick Intense as "a soft cushion of color that's not quite sheer, not quite opaque- just the perfect happy medium" (source). However, I think that the Chubby Stick Intense are indeed opaque and pigmented, with just a hint of translucency. Unlike the regular Chubby Sticks that give out a hint of color, the Chubby Stick Intense have color payoff that is true to what you see.

In terms of formula, I find it (strangely) to be much more moisturizing than the regular chubby stick. The formula is very creamy and smooth so it glides onto the lips very evenly without emphasizing lip lines or dryness. The texture is not too heavy and it feels very comfortable on the lips. When I wear the regular Chubby Sticks, my lips tend to feel dehydrated after a few hours but I don't experience that with the Chubby Stick Intense. In addition, the slightly glossy look made my lips look nice and plumped up.

The Chubby Stick Intense is a twist-up crayon/ jumbo pencil so it is less fussy and doesn't cause product wastage since it doesn't require any sharpening. Another thing, the Chubby Stick Intense has no obvious scent.

The Chubby Stick Intense also have better lasting power than the regular formula. These last about 4 hours on me (without eating but with occasional drinks), which is what I typically get with a more opaque/ creamy lipstick formula.

On my lips: 01 Curviest Caramel Chubby Stick Intense.

 On my lips: 04 Heftiest Hibiscus Chubby Stick Intense.

 My recent favorite lip look: 01 Curviest Caramel Chubby Stick Intense all over the lips, with 04 Heftiest Hibiscus Chubby Stick Intense applied in the middle portion of the lips and blended out.

  2. I love the combo look you've created! Great way to get the most out of both colors by blending them together! It's not too simple, yet not too dramatic! I think I should go get me these colors and try that out for myself too!

  20. I love the color 01 on you! I had no idea clinique came out with a cubby stick intense. I've been interested in their original chubby sticks, but just never had the chance to test them out at the department store yet lol. sounds like i am probably more interested in their 'intense' ones now since you mentioned they are more pigmented which i like! thanks for the review liz~ keep in touch :D
