By now you know , I am not big on makeup and what captures me more is au naturale and organic living. While I love to put on a blusher and add a hint of gold to my eyelids , but its restricted to occasions only and that too I would be quite selective of the product. I would rather do plain than doing a silicon or a paraben product. Which is why I am a big fan of Clinique. One, Clinique is a clinical brand and not a cosmetic brand and two, Clinique speaks skincare first and then makeup. Clinique was one of the first brands to introduce the three step skincare routine – cleansing , exfoliating and moisturizing.
So when Clinique launched their Chubby product line , I really wanted to try out their foundation stick. I am not a foundation girl but sometimes it just helps to get the no-makeup-makeup look and even out skin tone. Liquid foundation is definitely not made for my sensitive skin. It just makes me look white-washed!
Clinique Chubby stick is just the right product if you want sheer coverage and something to cover small open pores and giving your-skin-but-better look. It makes you look natural and doesn’t give you a faux “beauty plus” filter. I draw few strokes of this one on forehead , cheeks , nose and chin and gently blend it with fingers. However, one can use it just as a spot correction too.
It is twist up stick and convenient to put in a small sized hand bag. The only downside I think is that it has limited shades – only three in India. Although in my opinion the three shades are very close to most of the Indian skin tones but still it might not have a shade for everyone. My complexion is café-au-late and I am in shade Voluptuous Vanilla for this chubby stick.
