Make up for Moms: I ♥ chubby sticks! July 28 2014, 0 Comments
Whether I chose to blame it on the weather or just the natural progression of aging, my lips have just recovered from a few months of server chapping. As we age we need to add more moisture onto our faces, this is why face creams are so popular. I had been adding lipstick all winter long, it had probably been a good decade since I last wore lipstick, as I have always strictly been a lip-gloss girl. But if you read my posts on beauty you know I like one-shot makeup, that one makeup piece that is going to make my face feel less tired. So I am now on the Chubby wagon. Chubby’s for the most part are tinted balms. The Chubby’s I like are made with colors that are more to my stylish liking which is why I tend to use the Clinique ones. I find these tints last for a few hours, they keep my lips nice and moist so a win-win in my book, best part? They can last at least 6 months or longer.
A few picks (left to right):
- This Chubby has a darker tint, great if you like some deep color on your lip or as you’re ‘going’ out tint. I love this one for its shine. Estee Lauder (owns Clinique) Bronze Goddess Pure Color in Pure Plum.
- The one I have been wearing, a color that is in between a purple and pink and seems flattering for most skin tones. Clinique Chubby stick baby balm flowering freesia.
- A barely there pink, this is perfect if you like wearing a natural balm but want a wee bit of color. Clinique Chubby stick baby tint budding blossom.
