I’ll tell you about my small magic wand, which I discovered very recently. We’ll talk about the CLINIQUE Chubby Stick Sculpting Highlight which I found in a beauty box.
Product info 📎
Accentuate your best features with this highlighting stick, formulated with light-reflecting optics to illuminate the face. Long-wearing and oil-free, it’s ideal for wearing over bare skin or foundation, and to spotlight the top of cheekbones, the bridge of the nose, and other areas.
Name: Chubby Stick Sculpting Highlight
Size: 6g (0.21)
Outer appearance 📎
The product is actually a stick highlighter. It’s small and rounded.
The packaging is handy, it’ll fit into any makeup bag or a purse.
The design seems simple, yet cute. I like it:
The stick itself has the name of the product and the brand on it:
The back of it shows some product info.
The top cap comes off:
You’ll have to twist the tube up to get the product out.
The stick seems glowing with a bronze shade. It’s round. This was all due to that round shape that I used to think the stick would be inconvenient to use. But I was wrong!
The texture is creamy and the highlighter applies gently and it’s visible on the first go. When I apply it, it always feels as though the texture melts down, leaving a glowing finish behind.
This is how it looks like on my skin without any foundation on:
Daytime reveals its glowing finish, while in the evening the small shimmer becomes more detectable.
I can’t be picky about the list of ingredients. For me, the most important thing is that the product works and I like the result. But if you’re concerned about the components, I’ll cite them for you below:
Isodecyl Isononanoate, Polyethylene, Propylene Glycol Dicaprylate/Dicaprate, Hdi/Trimethylol Hexyllactone Crosspolymer, Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) Wax\Candelilla Cera\Cire De Candelilla, Bis-Diglyceryl Polyacyladipate-2, Diisopropyl Dimer Dilinoleate, Ozokerite, Squalane, Ceresin, Hydrogenated Polyisobutene, Silica, Caprylyl Glycol, Tocopheryl Acetate, Octyldodecanol, Phytosteryl Isostearate, Lauroyl Lysine, Lecithin, Synthetic Beeswax, Alumina, Lauryl Pca, Ethylene/Propylene/Styrene Copolymer, Tin Oxide, Oryzanol, Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Disteardimonium Hectorite, Propylene Carbonate, Butylene/Ethylene/Styrene Copolymer, [+/- Mica, Titanium Dioxide (Ci 77891), Iron Oxides (Ci 77491), Iron Oxides (Ci 77492), Carmine (Ci 75470), Manganese Violet (Ci 77742), Bismuth Oxychloride (Ci 77163), Ferric Ferrocyanide (Ci 77510), Ultramarines (Ci 77007), Chromium Hydroxide Green (Ci 77289), Iron Oxides (Ci 77499), Blue 1 Lake (Ci 42090), Yellow 5 Lake (Ci 19140), Chromium Oxide Greens (Ci 77288)]
You see, the product is creamy and taking into the account several areas that I highlight on my face, I conclude that it won't go a long way.
Glide on over bare skin or foundation to accentuate top of cheekbones, bridge of nose and other areas.
It isn’t tricky to use this product. The most important thing is to understand what you wanna do with it. For instance, if you want to make your nose appear thinner and smaller, just glide the product all over the bridge of your nose. But if you want to make your lips look poutier, then accentuate the Cupid’s bow on your upper lip in the middle.:)
I use this product over my forehead, bridge of the nose and draw a triangle under my eyes. I also apply it over my cheekbones, Cupid’s bow and never forget about my chin:
After that, I blend the product out. Sometimes I can add some more formula if I need it.
I love the result. My face looks cuter and fresher, I’d say.
BEFORE and AFTER:
So, girls, if you’re thinking on whether you need it or not, I’ll list the pros of the product for you:
+ convenient packaging
+ skin glow
+ my face looks fresh and cute
+ my nose is thinner and lips are pouty
- if I were too picky, I’d say that the spending is huge.
- price tag
Price: $24 for 0.21 oz
Highly recommended! :)
