When I heard that Clinique were releasing Chubby Stick Shadow Tint for Eyes I got really excited. I love my Chubby Sticks for lips so I had high hopes for the eyes version.
I couldn't wait for them to be released in Australia. Don't you hate how we have to wait for everything? It took a while but they were finally released in Australia but in early July. Naturally, I had to head to a Clinique counter ASAP to swatch and purchase.
I was immediately drawn to the more neutral shades. Being pretty boring with my eye shadows it was a foregone conclusion. After a little bit of swatching, I walked away from the Clinique counter with:
02 Lots o' Latte - taupey brown
03 Fuller Fudge - bronzed brown, this has a bit of a reddish undertone
04 Ample Amber - coppery bronze
For being a tint these shadows are actually really pigmented and can be built up if you want even more opacity. To give you an idea of pigmentation - the swatches further down show two swipes of shadow.
If you are a regular Luxury on the Lips reader you will know I am very lazy when it comes to eye make up. I love the look of it but I hate all the blending and shading and yadda yadda. Cream shadows, especially when in stick/pen form are a favourite of mine.
These are therefore perfect for me!
Super easy to apply - just swipe over the lid and then blend out with a fluffy brush. Takes less than a minute each eye for one of those morning when I have slept in and need to be out the door in 20 minutes (you know what I am talking about). If I have more time I will apply an extra shade to the outer third for that added dimension.
Another reason I love these shades? They all work together really well. But they also work really well on their own.
The Chubby Sticks for Eyes are very smooth making it is to apply and blend. I have found that they semi set on the eyelids - they don't dry out but they don't stay really creamy. With no primer or powder on top they still last all day on me.
L-R: Bountiful Beige, Lots o' Latte, Fuller Fudge and Ample Amber.
Overall, I am really happy to own these little beauties. Perfect for a quick and easy yet polished eye look. Honestly, they are a perfect product for a lazy girl like me. I know I'm not the only one out there! Or at least I hope I'm not..
Always rushing around to get your make up done before heading out? Your beauty sleep more important than a complicated eye look? Then you need the Clinique Chubby Stick Shadow Tint for Eyes in your life, STAT!
The Chubby Stick Shadow Tint for Eyes retail at $35.00 each and are available at Clinique counters and online now.
