I got a free sample in broadest berry. I was super excited bc I've been dying to try the chubby stick but for the price I just can't justify it (when there are so many cheaper options out there these days). I am IN LOVE with this 'intense' version of the chubby stick.
The quality is amazing! It applies like a balm, super creamy and smooth, but it sets matte! The color becomes one with my lips, it's so comfortable. I have perma-chapped lips but this is like a soft, cool caress shielding them from the air and keeping them extremely comfortable to the point where I wear it at home while I'm just vegging out on the couch!
I'm a total spend-thrift, but I am convinced that I need more of these in my life! Although I'll probably have a anxiety attack handing over $20 for a single lip product, I get so much wear out of these that it's worth it!
I got a free sample of this tonight just for trying the product on. I have heard people rant and rave about these things, but I honestly have a thing against buying Clinique for some reason. I think it has to do with the fact that when I first started wearing makeup everyone worse Clinique and it was so boring to me. I do have to admit they have stepped up their game some and added some more personality to the line, but I still have this stereotyped image in my head of Clinique being boring. Perhaps I will have to rethink that.
Anyways a really lovely makeup associate helped me and my sister. I say lovely because I usually HATE makeup counter "artist"....I hesitate to call them all artist. Some are mind you, some are not....most around Central Illinois are not. She talked to my sister who hardly wears makeup about what foundations she could try in the future if she ever decides she wants to wear makeup on a regular basis. I sort of drifted off into lala land while she was talking to my sister, but I guess at some point she told us if we tried on some sort of product we could get a free sample of perfume and an intense chubby stick...I told her I didn't have any money to buy any products. She responsed by saying I didn't need to purchase anything...just try something on. lol
I tried the intense chubby stick in Mightiest Maraschino. It was super flattering and produced bit a nice red mouth, if I do say so myself. It popped and was bold, but not too bold. Sometimes I feel like red is just too sexy. This was sort of a more tamed, every day red lip....if a red lip can be tame. lol
The feel of the product is like a lip balm and it felt very nice. The color wasn't patchy and it was just plain pretty. Overall I really like the product and think I will have to indulge in some more in the future.
My only complain is that the pointed part of the stick doesn't go all the way inside the tube. I can forsee myself gouging the balm at some point with the lid. Other than that I don't really have any complaints.
I wanted something plum-colored for my lips, but all plums are too blue for me and I end up looking like a Goth Granny.
On my last trip to Sephora I tested the Chubby Sticks. I swatched them on my hand and even the darkest color barely showed up. The light ones didn't even register (honestly, those who claim the regular Chubbies have "such wonderful color" must have totally white lips). And then I noticed the Intense group. I ignored Mightiest Maraschino, Heftiest Hibiscus, and Plushest Punch, because I DETEST loud lip colors. I don't care how fashionable they are. To me, they just scream 'vulgar.' I tried Grand Grape, and was delighted. It's exactly what I was looking for: plum but not blue. It has enough red in it to avoid the Goth Granny look.
It won't survive meals with any oil content (pasta, salads, etc.). But after dinner, I swabbed it on again and it stayed put through wine and coffee. I just rubbed my lips together and got a nice, noticeable stain for quite a long time. It did not bleed, or feather. I might get the Chili or the Berry (which I thought had a lot more brown than berry in it) because it is really a good product. I'm very happy with it.
Fantastic product! After trying the regular Chubby Sticks because I was drawn to the wonderful packaging, I was disappointed with the lack of color payoff and greasiness of the regular formula.
Enter Chubby Stick Intense: I received a sample of Plushest Punch, a bright pink on the cooler side and I fell in love! Great creamy opaque color, good feel on my lips, non-drying, wonderful. I subsequently bought Mightiest Maraschino and Boldest Berry, both are excellent choices for cooler toned skins. Mightiest Maraschino is the perfect cherry red for me and Boldest Berry is more subdued, a true neutral/cool berry but it has enough impact to brighten my face. While the regular Chubby Sticks were quite a disappointment for me, the Chubby Sticks Intense totally deliver. I am hoping for more shades to be added and I will definitely repurchase the shades I currently use when I run out. Retail: $17.
stellar product from Cliniqe. Glides on beautifully for rich, pretty, chic, instant colour, plumping and moisturising. Amazing packaging. What's not to love?
I have these in Mightiest Marachino and Plushest Punch. Both are lovely, bright colours and really make my lips pop, however I would say that they perform only an average job at conditioning my lips and also have very limited staying power. After a few sips of water pretty much all of the lipstick is on the glass. But because I like the colours, find them easy to use and well designed, I would probably repurchase in more colours if there were others I liked.
I have given this 4 lippies but I would actually only award this 3.5.

WOW, WOW, WOW Clinique!
I got this a few days ago and I can already tell it will be a favorite. I have the color "Heftiest Hibiscus 04" which is a beautiful corall color.
It feels more like a lipstick on the lips, the color looks great and it isn't sticky at all. It is moisturizing and the color stays on well.
-Beautiful, amazing color!
-Feels like a lipstick (I hate the glossy feeling you get from lipglosses)
-Isn't sticky at all
-Stays on well

I have this in Grandest Grape. Jeez I love lip color crayons, and this is no exception! While not as moisturizing as say, Tarte Lipsurgence, this wears comfortably and is beautifully pigmented. For a Clinique product, this is very "in for you face" and intense. It is opaque, with a bit of a satin shine. This wears well on me and leaves a stain behind. It doesn't get flakey or caked on my lips as it wears away, either, which I really like. Smooth, pigmented, comfortable. Great product.
Wow, Clinique!! I had a terrible relationship with Clinique as a teenager because I found their skincare to be just brutal for my combination normal skin. Once I stopped using it, my skin cleared up entirely. Move forward 8 years and now I am simply in love with their Moisture Surge overnight mask, their CC cream and these Chubby Stick Intense lip products!!! The original chubby sticks were so disappointing for me, I bought two colours and they are so sheer and..balmy..they don't last at all. The new Chubby Stick Intense version are totally different..the colours are BOLD, and absolutely gorgeous..I bought the 'Heftiest Hibiscus' and 'Plushest Punch' and I want to go back and buy 'Roomiest Rose' because the colour play-off is just amazing. I am extremely fair with neutral undertones, and these colours really suit me I think, but I am sure they look great on any skin tone! I love that it comes in crayon form, and that you can roll the stick up. The size of the product is fantastic for the price, which I think is quite affordable at $20 CND, compared to Lancome, Dior coloured balms etc. When these wear off a little bit they create a gorgeous and long lasting stain on the lips. I am obsessed with these currently, I haven't been able to wear anything else.
Let's just start off and say what a cute and clever name! I laugh a little bit just saying the name haha. With that said i really like this lip stick! I love the variety of colors it is available in and i love that it is big enough to spread all over your lips. Great application!
