I was very excited to attend the Clinique bloggers Cocktail party last week to find out more about their new launches, including the new Clinique Chubby Stick Intense. I am a huge fan of the original sheer Chubby Sticks from Clinique and have a couple in my handbag at all times. You can read my review of the original chubby sticks here, which launched last year.
The Intense Chubby Sticks launch this week, costing £16 each. The new range have the same crayon-like large barrels and offer the benefits of a balm but have a much more pigmented and fuller coverage formulation than the original shades. There are eight new shades in the range: Curviest Caramel, Chunkiest Chilli, Heftiest Hibiscus, Mightiest Maraschino, Plushest Punch, Roomiest Rose, Broadest Berry and Grandest Grape. I tried the Plushest Punch and as you can see by the swatch it’s much more intense and more like a lipstick when it comes to coverage. I did have a shock when I applied for the first time in the office, it was very bright!! They are so moisturising for your lips and really worth trying if you have dry lips and find lipsticks can dry your lips out. Personally I’d like to try a nuder shade, as I find reds and pinks too bright for every day use but still love the shades. Hopefully they will expand the range to more pinkier/nude shades in the future!
The Cocktail party itself was lovely and in the most stunning of locations in a penthouse overlooking London and right next to Selfridges! Here are a couple photos from the event, look how stunning the penthouse flat is!I also got to meet the lovely Dutchess Roz and catch up with other bloggers who I haven't seen in ages and try yummy cocktails! Thanks to Clinique for hosting a great event it was the nicest event I have attended for a long time.
