Clinique Chubby Stick Intense Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm - Heftiest Hibiscus

I've been curious about Clinique's Chubby Sticks for what feels like years! I would also stare at them when walking through department stores, but I never actually picked one up and bought it. I guess back then I just didn't get the hype of jumbo pencils - but now I've completely changed my tune. I love jumbo pencils, and I want to try all of them. Well, I've been trying Clinique's Chubby Stick Intense Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm in the shade Heftiest Hibiscus* ($19 CAD/0.1 oz), and today I'm sharing my thoughts with all of you!

Clinique Heftiest Hibiscus

"Soften lips with a cushion of color that’s not quite sheer, not quite opaque—but something perfectly in between. This moisturizing balm is loaded with mango and shea butters to make dry, delicate lips feel comfortably soft and smooth." - Sephora

Clinique Heftiest Hibiscus

Clinique has two different Chubby Stick formulas, and this one is the intense kind. I would describe Heftiest Hibiscus as being full on, pigmented colour. The pointed tip helps to outline your lips, but I know that this will wear down with subsequent uses. This formula does come in twist-up packaging, making it perfect to take with you on the go. Since this shade is so pigmented, I do recommend using a mirror to reapply.

Heftiest Hibiscus is a pretty orange-coral shade that works perfectly for Spring & Summer. This formula is hydrating, and it stayed creamy on my lips for about 4 hours. The colour itself started to fade at the 5 hour mark, which impressed me. There isn't any shimmer in this formula, but it does give a nice shiny look to your lips. As with all of Clinique's products, this one is 100% scent-free. I keep trying to smell the tube, and then remembering that Clinique is scent-free.

I've really been impressed with Clinique's Heftiest Hibiscus! The pigmentation is great, and I love how comfortable this formula feels. If you've been curious about this formula, I'd say give it a try - you might just be pleasantly surprised! Now I'm also wanting to try out the shades Roomiest Rose and Grandest Grape (these lippies could use some better names, am I right?). Have you tried this formula before? Which shades are your favourites?

  8. I was going to say, this lip crayon name is sorta meh. Luckily the color is super pretty. I like the Clinique crayons. I think they fall between Tarte (being #1) and Revlon (being #3).
