Chubby Stick Shadow Tint For Eyes

Along with Himself, cocktails and salt n vinegar crisps, Clinique’s Chubby Sticks are up there with my very favourite things. (And I’m not alone – read Marian Keyes rave review of ‘em here). I was over the moon when they launched the intense versions – Curviest Caramel might just be the perfect nude – and have been truly madly deeply and eagerly anticipating the latest addition to the Chubby family.

Just like the lip products these are absolutely adorable to look at as well as being convenient and easy to use: just twist the base to reveal more product, and have fun colouring in your eyes!

Top L-R: Whopping Willow, Fuller Fudge, Pink & Plenty. Bottom: Curvaceous Coal, Ample Amber, Portly Plum

As for the shade range, I was pleasantly surprised – 12 are hitting counter to start with, and there’s loads of scope to add to those in time. They range from really wearable neutrals to pretty pastels to more dramatic shades of charcoal, navy and purple.

Top L-R: Mighty Moss, Massive Midnight, Bountiful Beige. Bottom: Lavish Lilac, Lots O’Latte, Big Blue

The lovely Clinique girls tell me that Ample Amber is their fave – they’re both wearing it when we meet, and it does look stunning. It makes my top three, along with the dark ‘n’ moody Massive Midnight and the khaki/antique gold colour, Whopping Willow.

The sheers!

They feel silky and creamy and apply in a light veil of colour across the lids. Pigmentation varies – some are more sheer than others, depending on the shade.  I was swatching like a loon and can tell you Lavish Lilac, Pink & Plenty, Big Blue and Bountiful Beige are on the sheer side, while shades like Massive Midnight and Portly Plum are deeper and more pigmented – so there really is something for everyone here.  They all blend brilliantly and I’m told they’re longlasting and work really well together, too.

My faves!

They launch on February 15th – I know what I want this Valentine’s Day! – and they’ll be €22. Which one’s your pick of the bunch?

    Wowzers! these look great, the portly plum one might be my next purchase, they look like they’d just glide on

  • ~Thalia~ says:

    I like the look of these and their simplicity would be good for make up eejits like myself! Foolproof! :)

    LOVE your watch pictured too!

  • Emma says:

    Thanks Thalia – I don’t normally wear a watch but I’ve fallen for the rose gold charms of this one from Daniel Wellington! Cannot wait to get my hands on Weeping Willow xo

  • littlesis says:

    Squuueeeeee! This is very exciting. I am a lover of anything creamy on the eyes.

  • Cait says:

    These look gorgeous but for eyecolour at €22 each I don’t think I’d get any. I just wouldn’t need that much of one colour. I think I’d rather spend a little more and get a pallette of colours

  • *Aisling* says:

    Clinique look like they’re on to another winner with these! Love the fact that they don’t have to be sharpened and just twist up

  • Miss Y. says:

    Although it looks fabulous, I just wonder if it’s easy to apply with precision. Could you get the eye shadow on a brush to apply it?

    The huge pencil just looks a bit messy to me…

  • Emma says:

    I think the joy of these is that you don’t need precision – colour in your lids, blend it with your fingers and bam! You’re done!

  • Jennifer says:

    These look fab, but I’d have to wonder about eye application too, they are a tad chunky so I wonder how precise you could get them on the eye? I just know I’ll give in and purchase one though, I heart Clinique lippys and eye makeup!

  • Sandy Beach says:

    Your eyes look lovely. Don’t think my mother would be too fond though.

    Chubby sticks look good to me. It would be so handy to have in my bag just 3 pencils (eyeshadow/liner & lips) a mascara and a foundation – ready to to. Simples.

  • Jennifer says:

    Ah, cheers for that Emma, that’s what I’ll be doing so!

  • Aisling_eile says:

    These look great.perfect for people like me who are make-up-challenged.

    That eye braclet is the creepiest thing I’ve seen in ages.Its FREAKY!!!

  • Ladyjane says:

    Love the eye bracelet Emma, it’s rather fitting!

  • Emma says:

    Thanks gals – yeah it’s a bit freaky but I love it anyway!
