Clinique Chubby in the Nude Foundation Stick


We’re not sure about the name of this (is there a woman alive who loves the thought of being ‘chubby in the nude’...? Voluptuous, yes. But chubby...?) Anyway, let’s move beyond names, here – and of course it’s tongue-in-cheek –to a fantastic product: a great, blendable, buildable stick foundation in a choice of 10 shades. (And being Clinique, they go quite dark – meaning there’s something for every woman.)

The coverage is great – excellent on broken veins, age spots (even Jo’s broken veins, which is always impressive). And the texture, while moisturising, also stays put rather than sliding right off.

What’s stellar about it is the fact you can keep it in your handbag without risk of spills and disasters, because it’s a stick. Which means it’s great for on-the-go touch-ups.

Straight in the handbag, thanks, Clinique.

And we’ll forgive you the name – just.
