I’ve written before of my love for Clinique Chubby Sticks. There was just a sale where they went down to $15, so I bought two of my regular color and tried two new colors as well, making a total of six that I’ve tried, I think.
The one I keep buying again and again (see all my beauty empties) is “Graped Up,” which is a super sheer brownish mauve. Truly “my lips but better.” I also keep buying “Fuller Fig,” which I like just a bit less than “Graped Up,” and I bought a more intense bright red, “Broadest Berry” when I was hunting for an everyday red lipstick. (It’s very buildable and wears really well, but the idea of an “everyday red” just didn’t take.) Just a week or two ago I also got “Voluptuous Violet” and “Lot of Honey.”
Honestly? No complaints about any of them; would buy again, 5 stars. The colors are pretty and sheer; they go on easily with the crayon applicator; the product is moisturizing without being sticky; and the color is buildable if you sometimes want a hint of color and sometimes want more of “a lewk,” as the kids say.
The crayons are $18 full price, which in the era of $90 lipsticks isn’t bad at all — compared to a $8 drugstore brand, yes, they’re pricier, but the nice thing about department store makeup is that it’s so easy to return. I keep reading about how drugstore makeup is returnable also but have never tried to return anything — I’d love to hear about your experiences if you have! (Here’s our last discussion on the retailers with the best return policies.)
How about you, readers — what is your favorite lipstick/balm/tint right now?
