Weekly Must-Have: Clinique Chubby Stick Shadow Tint For Eyes
Remember that post I did on 3 different ways to wear the Clinique Chubby sticks (recap here)? Well, it seems that the good old folks at Clinique listened to me and made a range of Chubby Sticks exclusively for the eyes… although I’ll still be wearing the Chubby Lip Sticks on eyes from time to time because I love the glossy lid effect.
But, alas, for those of you who prefer your eyeshadow classic and cream – sans the gloss, Clinique Chubby Stick Shadow Tint For Eyes is your must-have. Wear one shade alone for an allover, sheer wash of gentle color, or combine hues for drama and definition. A quick tip to create a smokey eye look with the chubby stick is to draw a line in your desired shade from the outer corner of the crease to about 3/4 inward. Then, with your ring finger, gently smear the line down – toward the lash line – and out and up toward the outer corner. You can use the chubby stick on your lower lash line, too, and smudge outwards. For a more vibrant hue, layer the color on. This is the perfect daytime eye look and will take you all of 2 minutes to achieve!
Favorite colors are: Fuller Fudge, a bronze brown, Lots ‘O Latte, a taupey brown, Bountiful Beige, a light peachy beige (ideal to use as a highlighter on the brow bone and inner corners of the eyes), Curvaceous Coal, a dark charcoal grey, and Mighty Moss, a deep olive green that is right on trend with the emerald color of the year hue. The other colors include, pinks, purples and blues. There are 12 shades in total.
The Clinique Chubby Sticks have a similar use to Laura Mercier’s Caviar Sticks… but I find Clinique to be a bit more wearable with more manageability over the vibrancy of the color and they are definitely more affordable ($8 less per stick!).
