The Clinique Chubby Stick Review

Clinique are starting a chubby revolution. First came the Lip Colour which provided easy to apply colour with the texture of a balm. Next came the Shadow Tint For Eyes which gave lids a wash of colour in one easy swipe. Then it was the Sculpting Contour Stick, solving all our contouring woes, and now we have the next chubby hero – the Chubby In The Nude Foundation Stick. We tried it out so you can know, before you buy.

By stimulating beta-endorphines (the molecules that make you feel good) these perfumes could really be a godsend. But do they actually work? We put them to the test…
