When I think of fantastic lip products, I often overlook Clinique. There is usually not a lot of pomp and circumstance around their products. Yet, they are simplistic and effective. The Clinique Chubby Stick Lip Balm is a beautiful example of this. Retailing on the Clinique website for USD 18.50 this little gem is fragrance, phthalate, and paraben free. It is full of shea and mango butter and glides on smoothly.
Boasting 16 shades this little lip crayon provides excellent coverage and long-lasting wear. I found myself reaching for this for day to day use. It found its way into my handbag and into my makeup bag on a regular rotation.
As described on the Clinique website:
Super-nourishing balm is loaded with mango and shea butters. Just what dry, delicate lips need to feel comfortably soft and smooth. Natural-looking lip tints have a subtle sheen.
How To Use
- Apply directly to lips.
- For subtle definition outline lips first, then fill in with natural-looking colour.
- Never needs sharpening: simply swivel up to reveal more lip colour balm.

I was lucky enough to receive this product in PR, and I feel immensely grateful that I did. I will be repurchasing this lip balm. It provides a quick finished polish while on the go.
