Do you ever get that feeling that somewhere out there, on this vast, ever-turning world, there is someone out there who just gets you? If ever you were to meet them, you'd spend the time jaws agape at each other after both proclaiming (simultaneously and without prompting on either part), 'wouldn't it be fantastic if you could get a lip balm in the shape of a giant crayon!'
I'm beginning to think Clinique have been reading my thoughts. Either that, or they recognise the appeal to the child within all of us who desires to colour in.
Oh, how I love you, Clinique Chubby Stick.
The balm itself is lovely and moisturising. It's lightweight, not at all sticky and leaves an absolute beautiful tint on the lips. Being a balm, it doesn't have super staying power, but if you got to use a crayon to reapply, how could that ever be an issue?
Also, unlike other jumbo pencil/crayons, this baby doesn't need sharpening. It winds up and down. Genius.
Chubby Sticks come in eight shades, of which I've got the colour Chunky Cherry, a super bright yet sheer wash of red across the lips. I'm looking at adding the more subdued Mega Melon, a pinkish coral to my repertoire.
To get a little chubby friend in your life, check out your nearest Clinique counter, or order online here. RRP$35.
