Clinique Chubby Stick In Pudgy Peony

7/22/2014



Clinique Chubby Stick in Pudgy Peony was a recent beauty discovery. I have been lusting after many follow-ups of this original chubby beaut and have a clear favorite among the drugstore aisles - the Bourjois Color Boost Lip Crayons. I find that those are the best drugstore alternative to the originals. However, original is the original. It's the same thing as with Urban Decay eyeshadow palettes. I have searched high and low, tried, purchased and tested similar more affordable offerings and yet none come close to the UD palettes. Finally, I gave away all those dupes to friends and have only kept the real deal. The same thing happened with Clinique Chubby Sticks. I lusted after them for a long time and after I've completely changed my shopping philosophy - I am finally owing beauty items I truly wanted for years. No more random drugstore shopping rounds - I have a list to which I strictly stick to and save money for one but well-worth thing per month rather than wasting money on ten different, cheaper products. The packaging of this super-nourishing lip balm is beautiful and adds to the experience. You get what you pay for and this chubby stick looks gorgeous. I cannot put my finger on it but it's simply well made. No screeching, gaps or letters peeling off. Even the silvery cap and bottom look scratch-free despite being toted it in my bag along with a set of heavy keys. 

Clinique Chubby Stick u nijansi Pudgy Peony je relativno svjez dodatak make-up kolekciji. Obracala sam paznju na mnoge slicne debeljuce nesto pristupacnijeg cjenovnog ranga, pa sigurno mjesecima ako ne i godinu dana. Nakon mnogo pokusaja, iz drogerijskog ranga su mi se izdvojili kao najbolji Bourjois Color Boost Lip Crayons, koje sam i recenzirala. Ipak, original je original i ponovio se isti scenarij kao sa Urban Decay paletama sjena za oci. Trazila sam na ociglednim i manje ociglednim mjestima te kupovala, isprobavala i procjenjivala dosta paleta slicnih poznatoj Urban Decay trilogiji u nadi da cu im pronaci zamjenu. Nakon nekog vremena, poklonila sam svaku slicnu paletu prijateljicama te sam kod sebe zadrzala samo originalne primjerke. Ista stvar mi se desava i sa Clinique Chubby balzamima u boji. Tek nakon sto sam promijenila filozofiju kupovine, napokon sam dosla u posjed proizvoda koje zaista zelim i o kojima mastam godinama. Nema vise nasumicnih i neplaniranih kupovina po dm-u i cm-u. Sada se samo pridrzavam svog spiska te se radije odlucujem na mjesecno sakupljanje novcica za jednu ali u mojim ocima vrijednu stvar sa spiska, radije nego kupovinu 5-6 ili vise jeftinijih stvarcica (koje me prvenstveno privlace niskom cijenom). Ovaj pristup mi odgovara u smislu da se osjecam zadovoljnije nego ranije. Pakovanje ovog ultra hranljivog balzama za usne je prekrasno i svakako da dodatno uljepsava cijelo iskustvo kupovine. Ono sto mi se dopada jeste sto vidim da je cijena od 55KM opravdana ne samo kvalitetnim proizvodom vec i dobro uradjenom ambalazom. Nema skriputanja, propusta, rupica, nepoklapanja, labavosti ili skidanja slova. Cak su i srebrnkasti cep i dno bez ogrebotina iako debeljucu nosim u neseseru zajedno sa kljucevima.





Clinique Chubby Sticks have no prominent scent which I like and are also very soft (but they do not melt easily) and nourishing towards the lips. I think these are great – lovely range of colors that makes easy for everyone to find a matching one. I am keeping my eye on a lovely reddish shade Two Ton Tomato as it could very well be my next purchase. These are also very pigmented whilst acting like a lip balm in that they glide on and leave the lips very moisturised. That moisturizing part is what makes them ideal for dry lips such as my own. I prefer this type of lip balm/pigment hybrids than regular lipsticks (apart from MAC ones obviously, because I adore those). They don't accentuate dry, flaky bits of lips and they even cover for them, smoothing the skin out. They are very comfortable to wear and the shine fades away evenly, leaving a lovely tint. Lasting power isn't out of this world but it tops regular lip balms whilst coming short in comparison to lipsticks. These never need sharpening as you simply swivel up to reveal a bigger nib. That makes them ideal for travelling or keeping in your handbag as they are so easy to apply. Pudgy Peony is a lovely shimmer-free purple/pink shade which makes lips pop but is still very wearable. It lifts up the entire face and makes the complexion look perked up. It is so versatile in sense that you can add it to a daytime look and freshen it up but you can also incorporate it with a stronger eye as well. The lightweight formula is also a joy to use. As a conclusion, I really cannot tell you that this is something you cannot live without. I reckon that mostly beauty junkies and collectors will purchase these original chubby sticks. However, if you are on a tight budget - I doubt these will enter your priority shopping list.

Clinique Chubby Stick balzami u boji nemaju izrazajan ni specifican miris, sto mi se dopada. Jako su mekani no na vrucinama se ne tope tako lako. Takodjer ih krasi odlika zadovoljavajuce hranljivosti spram usana. Mislim da su sjajni - toliko razlicitih nijansi imamo na raspolaganju da vjerujem kako se sa lakocom moze pronaci idealna nijansa. Drzim na oku i krasnu crvenkastu nijansu Two Ton Tomato koja bi vrlo lako mogla biti naredna kupovina. Pigmentacija ovih Clinique balzama je prilicno dobra dok pruzaju odlicnu njegu, poput pravog balzama, hidratizirajuci njeznu kozu usana. Bas ta njega ih cini savrsenim dodatkom boje za osobe suhih usana, kakav je slucaj sa mnom. Uvijek radije biram hibride balzama i pigmenta posto njegu ne mogu kompromitirati i drazi su mi od npr.klasicnih ruzeva (osim MAC ruzeva koji su u sasvim drugoj ligi). Suhi, perutavi dijelovi usana nece biti izrazeni sa Clinique debdeljucom te ce usne biti zagladjene. Prijatnog su, laganog osjecaja na usnama, sjaj nestaje postepeno tokom prvog sata nosenja dok se boja zadrzava jos cca pola sata (pocinje se skidato od sredine usana ka ivicama). Trajnost nije najjaca strana posto se ipak radi o balzamu za usne no Clinique je nadmasio neke prosjecne balzame dok ruzevima ipak ne moze da parira. Siljalo nije potrebno, balzam funkcionise na mehanizmu za odvrtanje. Jako je praktican i savrsen proizvod za torbicu upravo zbog jednostavnosti koristenja. Pudgy Peony je divna ruzicasto-ljubicasta nijansa bez shimmera ciji ruzicasti pigment preovladava na mojim usnama dok je hladni podton primjetan (cak primjetniji swatchan na ruci nego na usnama). Ova univerzalna boja mislim da bi pristajala vecini tonova koze. Moze biti nosena u sklopu dnevnog look-a ali i upotpuniti intenzivnije nasminkane oci. Kupila sam svoju debeljucu u Inoma parfumeriji u Sarajevu (SCC) za 55KM. Kao zakljucak, zaista ne bih mogla reci da je ovo nesto neophodno u vasem zivotu i prije ce ljubiteljice i kolekcionari biti skloni kupovini originalnih debeljuca. U slucaju da kupovinu najvise procjenjujete sa finansijske strane, vjerovatno Clinique debeljuce nece biti pri vrhu vasih prioriteta.
