Clinique Chubby Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm Review, Swatches, Photos
Here’s your must have Spring lip product, Clinique Chubby Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm.
You NEED it.
A super nourishing balm that’s loaded up with mango and shea butters plus a hint of color!
Dry, tried lips can always use an extra boost that’s why lip balm is a solid choice but so inconvenient to tote around in its traditional pot form. Clinique Chubby Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm come housed in a chubby little pencil that travels easily and hydrates lips while giving them a blush of color.
For those who go the more minimalist route with their makeup or their lip makeup in general these should appeal as the formula is incredibly lightweight, hydrating, and leaves color behind that enhances your lips natural pigment without being overly done or garish. I tried five shades and all five give my lips just the right amount of gorgeous color without being too bold, too over done, or too heavy. Part of the main appeal of the product is the way it visibly enhanced the color of my lips. It really gives the MLBB (my lips but better) experience a new meaning! Compared to other products of its kind I felt like this was what set it apart and made it so enjoyable to use.
The texture feels like a lip balm of sorts with a bit of a waxy feel however not an unpleasant one simply one that wraps lips in a moisturizing finish. They don’t give a ton of shine but they do leave behind a nice healthy sheen. If you’re wanting to get the most bang for your buck you can easily swipe ’em across your cheeks for a flush of color as well!
Shades I tried were Mega Melon (deep melon peach shade), Super Strawberry (rich fuchsia berry), Whoopin’ Watermelon (sheer pink), Fuller Fig (brown fig), and Graped-Up (sheer plum). Out of all the shades I loved Super Strawberry, Mega Melon, and Fuller Fig the best however it really doesn’t matter which shade you try as most all are guaranteed to work no matter your skin tone in my opinion.

Formula wears quite long and with a clear gloss on top they really pop and sizzle!
These swivel up and do not have a sharpener so if you prefer a precise point at all times you might be a bit disappointed when the point starts to get a bit stubby.
- Anyone who likes minimal makeup or those who apply and reapply balms and glosses throughout the day (these are great for traveling with and for touch ups throughout the day).
- Anyone who wants to multitask one product for cheeks and lips (nothing stopping you from using ’em on your cheeks for a bit of color).
- Anyone who likes an MLBB (my lips but better) experience (these enhance the natural pigment of your lips).
- Anyone who likes balms.
- Those who want a bold, pigmented lip product (these are subtle).
I absolutely adored these not only for the formula but also for the considerably cheaper price tag ($15). The formula just does something wonderful for my lips and leaves behind a lovely little burst of hydrating color. I’ve tried plenty of products like it but none are nearly as nice plus as I said can’t beat this price.
Great stuff. You NEED these.
