There’s something about wielding lip balm in the form of a giant crayon that irresistibly appeals to the little kid in me. I think the folks at Clinique played their psychology right for people like me who are a sucker for packaging.
Fuller Fig is a deep rose brown with surprisingly good pigmentation for a tinted balm (medium and buildable coverage). A really flattering colour for both warm and cool skin tones and a perfect ‘my lips but better’ colour for Fall. LOVE this.
Graped Up is a neutral brown shade, with sheer to medium coverage. Although it looks quite similar to Fuller Fig when swatched I find that Graped Up looks a bit flat against my skin tone (maybe cooler skin tones would suit this better). I don’t reach for this colour nearly as much as I do Fuller Fig.

Texture and performance:
The Clinique Chubby Sticks have quite a thin consistency on the lips with a little bit of balminess and ‘slip’. This makes it lightweight and very comfortable but also means that the product wears off quite quickly- normally I get about 30mins of wear before I need to reapply.
A fun lip product which combines colour with a bit of lip treatment on the side. Pigmentation is quite impressive for a tinted lip balm, and packaging is luxe, but I do wish that it lasts a little longer on the lips given the $35 price tag in Australia.
