lipSTICKS – Part 1: The Chubby Stick

After Clinique released their Chubby Sticks, the beauty community fell in love with the idea of combining a moisturising lip balm with some colour. I am sure this existed before, but they managed to produce the right product at the right time. As these kind of big lipsticks are such a big seller, many other brands started to release similar product, so I was wondering… what is actually available at the moment, and what are the differences?

When I started looking for those chubby sticks I realised that there so many different brands who sell similar products that I decided to split this up into several posts. Let us start in Part 1 with the original Chubby Sticks by Clinique and their latest addition, the Chubby Stick Intense.
