Product Spotlight : Clinique Chubby in the nude Foundation Stick

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 Рonly 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 caf̩-au-late and I am in shade Voluptuous Vanilla for this chubby stick.
