I first bought one in Chunky Cherry, which is a cute pinkish red and loved it so much I bought a second one in Mega Melon which is more of a peachy nude, a color I find easier to wear everyday. I love both of them.
The texture is lovely and hydrating. It is very comfortable to wear, and it has enough colour that I would qualify it as a lipstick rather than a tinted lip balm. It's not extremely conditioning, so I wouldn't reach for it if my lips were chapped and I was looking for relief, but it's definitely not drying and it gives a very flattering sheen, which looks healthy and polished.
The colours aren't very resistant though, so you need to reapply every so often.
I tend to wear Chunky Cherry in the winter or evening because it's darker, Mega Melon is good for everyday wear. They are cute to whip out as the packaging is fun and neat looking, I enjoy using them and will probably buy again.
Subtle beautiful color - just perfect. This goes on smooth and is a no-fuss no-mess product for sure. Love it especially on the go when I need a bit of color but don't want to look painted up. Very moisturizing without being gloopy or hideously glossy.
After I first applied this I was shocked. It looks like any ordinary automatic chubby lip pencil--except this is SUPER moisturizing! I have woefully dry, cracked, peeling lips and this did not settle into my lines at all. Not only that, it instantly moisturized the peeling areas so that they no longer felt scratchy when I rubbed my lips together.
The pigmentation is pretty good & the packaging works well enough for an automatic pencil--no complaints. Be warned that when you apply it initially there is a strong lipstick scent & taste that reminds me of Rimmel Moisture Renew lipsticks. It fades a bit after a few minutes but if you are sensitive to it you might not like it
This lost one lippie because I'm not sure it's worth 15 bucks but if you can get it on sale or part of a promotion then it's wonderful. If you like the convenience of an automatic chubby lip pencil with the feel of a moisturizing & pigmented lipstick, then this is it for you. continued >>
i have this in mega melon, woppin watermelon, and super strawberry. i love all of them and want to purchase more asap. theyre really moisturizing and add such a sheer wash of color to lips. the only downside is that they arent very long lasting. theyre perfect for school. they make lips look so juicy!
Love my chubby stick! I have one in watermelon, and the colour is gorgeous. This really feels just like a conditioning lip balm, except the colour is quite pigmented for what it is. I wear it almost every day. I've even worn it at night where the colour has shown up in photos.
Some minor flaws with the product:
- The cap sometimes has a tendency to come off... this is quite annoying when the product is still new and the "stick" gets mushed around your bag
- It's not super long lasting, but then again, what lip balm is? It needs reapplying every 1-2 hours, however when the wax wears off it leaves the colour residue on your lips which tends to stick to the dry and flakey bits - therefore the second application won't look as smooth. I tend to go for a sheer gloss instead for a second application.
I really love this product! I have it in Woppin' Watermelon ( kind of a bright pink ) and I love how it is buildable. I have no problem with the packaging except once when I opened it the whole "stick" of color fell out. Luckily I just shoved it right back in and it seemed to have melted back together. I would buy this again and I really want to get a lot of other colors.
Most lip products claim to be "conditioning" but I think that this is one of the only ones that delivers! I bought "whole lotta honey" (a sheer rosey brown) and it looks very natural on me, with a "my lips but nicer" sort of feel! It goes on VERY smooth with no stickiness, and gives a nice touch of colour with a hint of shine. It lasts for ages, and I can't rave enough about how nice this makes you lips feel both while wearing it and afterwards. I took away one lipstick because at £16 it's quite pricey, though it could be worse for what's essentially a lip balm and lipstick in one. BUY THIS!
Thumbs up for name, colors, packaging and effectiveness (color/balm). Just an all-around terrific new product (which, when it first came out I had to search high and low for a place that had Super Strawberry - popular color - in stock). Love it.
I have the chubby stick in Chunky cherry (the red one) and I am very pleased with it. It feels like a lip balm but you still get colour-pay off like a sheer lipstick. I like that it doesn't feel sticky and that it really nourishes my lips. I'm very pale and have red lips by nature and this chubby stick makes them look even more red. I like it and I don't really care that it's pricey...I paid 17.30€ and I see this product as a 2 in 1 so no problems for me! This will be my everyday go-to lip product!
I really like these chubby sticks! I have them in Mega Melon and Whole Lotta Honey. You can apply them sheer or build them up for a more opaque color. They feel moisturizing, are easy to use, and give a put together look to your lips. They also stay put on your lips and will last for a few hours. I think the crayon-like packaging is so cute and I love the name "chubby stick!" Yes, the product is on the expensive side for a lip balm and some people would like to get more product for their money, but I think the price is worth it considering the pros and the great color options. These are perfect for wearing to work or class!
