Clinique Chubby Stick Intense Moisturizing Lip Balm

  Lost count of the time Sarah's raved on about the original sheer Chubby Sticks (and our testers Beauty Bible love, love, love them too...)

Now it's Jo's turn for a bit of a rave, with these super-pigmented versions, which just launched.

The chubby lipcolour features the same brilliantly lip-conditioning ingredients as before - shea butter, jojoba seed oil, mango seed butter - for comfort and condition.  But the colour really is super-intense.  On balance, these deliver the coverage of a typical lipstick, but (unlike most lipsticks) are really softening and comfy on the old smackers.

Perfect for a season when strong lips are the way to go, these particular Chubbies are available in eight ker-pow! shades - from the palest (a deep rose called Curviest Caramel) though to Grandest Grape, which actually goes on rather more deep raspberry.  (If you want to take the edge off the depth of colour, add a touch of an everyday lip balm first, then blend with a finger once applied.  If you want to go really Hollywood intense, the Clinique Chubby Stick Intense Moisturizing Lip Balms are perfectly buildable.)

We predict that, in common the Chubby Sticks that have gone before, they'll be topping the lipstick charts very soon.

They really are that lipslickin' good...
