Review: Clinique’s Whole Lotta Candy

Hi Glamifys,

Robinsons recently had a member private even sale and cosmetics were going at 10% off.

It has been awhile since I bought anything from Clinique and the Christmas sets caught my eye.

As many of you are aware, I had been using Revlon’s Kissable Balm Stains which are an exact drugstore dupe to Clinique’s chubby sticks.

The Christmas set came with 3 mini chubby sticks retailing at SGD 39.

While the packaging was cute and colorful, I felt a little “cheated” by the amount of product in the tube.

The set comes with a pink/fuschia “pudgy peony”, orange/red “two ton tomato” and grape/purple “voluptuous violet”.

Chubby sticks are rather translucent with buildable coverage. At the very most, they offer sheer to medium color payoff. Chubby sticks are more of lip balms or stains with a hint of color and are meant more of lip moisturizers.

From top to bottom:
Pudgy peony
Two ton tomato
Voluptuous violet

The sticks are about 3 3/4 inches in length which is about a regular travel size item. However, when you wind up the stick to the max, you only receive about 3/4 inch of chubby stick.

That is extremely little considering it cost SGD 39. ūüė¶

As much as I pay for quality and Clinique is a well known brand, I also wish to get a bang for my buck.

Oh well..
