I can remember those times when my 14-year-old nieces and girlfriends were crazy about these sticks because “they are so glossy, lip-friendly and bright.” Such an affordable dupe of the Clinique Chubby Stick. For me, I bought a couple of these sticks in summer and bright shades which are Stiff Pink and Coral Of The Story.
This is the perfect stick for your pout! Now you can liven up your lips with one stick for a kissable pout in no time. To keep you pucker-perfect, these balm stains glide on smoothly while conditioning your lips. Enriched with acai and palm oil, this amazing formula forms a protective shield on the lips to prevent feathering.
When I could get my hands onto these sticks, I already knew for sure who they tried to copy. It’s true that Chubby sticks have a lot of copies but what about these ones? Are they really so close to the original?
I liked that packaging. The cap clicks there, so I’m sure that it won’t pop open in my handbag.
As for the stick, it’s rather thin, so no problems with my Cupid’s bow lining and lip inner corners. No problems with twisting it either.

Honestly, I didn’t expect that these shades would be so vibrant. But they are okay for the summer, sun, and seaside, I think. They apply well and almost don’t look patchy. Make sure your lips are fine before application, otherwise they’ll look like a messy something.
In fact, these are more like lip tints and not balms at all. The shades are vibrant for a tint and it stays put for good, even if I drink or eat something.
The products do almost nothing for conditioning my lips. I haven’t noticed any minty sensation at all.
These are great to play with for the summer or as a good makeup product for a teenager. But still, the disadvantages are here to keep them away from using them on a daily basis.
