I have these in Lots O' Latte and Fuller Fudge and Bountiful Beige. At first, I was afraid they would be too sheer but they do go on quite pigmented. The stick form is very easy to use, just a few quick swipes and you're good to go. I find that this is easy to blend so long as you don't wait too long after the initial application. The best part is that with a primer (I use Wet n Wild), I get 16 hours of wear with these. I am so very, very impressed. I have quite oily lids and the most I usually get out of anything is 7-8 hours. These wear solidly for 16 hours without even a hint of a crease or fading. They likely would last longer but I end up having to go to bed before I can find out. I can't wait to try the other colors and see if they perform just as well. SUCH a great product.
On my daughter's insistance I picked up the ample amber and boy am I glad I did. Goes no smoothly, no tugging. I worked an 8 hour shift and it stayed fresh with no creasing. Very buildable without looking cakey, but can be worn sheer for a quick run out the door look. Going to pick up more colours today. I do recommend.
This is by far the BEST eyeshadow I have ever purchased!! I have the Lavish Lilac colour and it's gorgeous - I was afraid it would be too retro 80's but it's a much deeper purple and very little sparkle. It goes on smoothly and doesn't tug my eyelids. It lasts a full work day as well and it doesn't crease - very rare for me as I have incredibly oily skin all over. It's really expensive for eyeshadow ($19 CDN) BUT I know that it will last me a long time and I love the crayon/roll-up packaging. It's less messy than the regular powder eyeshadows and I don't even bother with a brush to apply as well. I'm definitely going to purchase this again in a few more colours!
I purchased the color Bountiful Beige. I wanted a very natural looking shade of color for my eyes, which is why I decided to go with this one. And, I am totallly love it!
It has incredible staying power, it doesn't irritate my eyes in any way, it is easy to apply, and it is not drying to my eyelids at all. And, the shade Bountiful Beige is perfect for everyday wear, no matter the season!
I love these eye shadow tints. I had previously tried a cream eye shadow by Mary Kay, and found it increased the look of "crepey" eyes and was dismayed. When Clinique came out with these Chubby Sticks, I was hopeful they'd not make my middle-aged eyes look older. And they don't! I love them. I have three (portly plum, lots o latte, and ample amber) and will be buying more. The color just glides on like silk and they stay all day, with no creasing. I have found, though, that if I add a powder eye shadow on top, there is some creasing. But there is none from just layering the Chubby Sticks themselves. I'm extremely impressed with this product and am finding myself using my powdered eye shadows less and less.
These are really nice, crease resistant shadows. Don't let the the name fool you, its more that just a tint. The pigmentation is really good. They go on smoothly and wear all day without creasing even without primer. The two that I have (Lavish lilac and Ample Amber) have a slightly metallic/shimmery finish but there is no fallout and the shimmer is not too much. These are modist enough to wear to work. Checkout my review on yahoo for more info!
was never a Clinique girl but I tried some of these in store and just in love!
It doesn't crease for at least 6 hours which im happy about.
Love the colours: lots of latte, beige and the purple one!
I recently purchased Ample Amber. The colour is a shimmery pinkish-gold, but I wouldn't call it frosty. It's fairly sheer on me (NC15/20) and it is gorgeous. I apply it directly to my lids and it goes on really smoothly. The application is fantastic because it doesn't tug on my eyelids at all and I don't need to blend it further. After about 4 hours it still looks great and hasn't creased. I am very impressed!
Ok, so these just released very recently, and I already own 8 out of the 12 colors, yes, I am obsessed with these! They are creamy and easy to blend. You can layer these sticks to give a bolder color, or just one layer for a sheer wash. They really do last a long time without creasing. But what I love the most is the finish of these. You would think they would be very shimmery, but they're not. They are the most perfect suede like finish. Not completely matte, but nice, soft, velvety finish that just looks so luxurious! Get them!
Love this! Many years ago Clinque had another shadow stick that I used and adored, then they discontinued it and I hoarded the last inches. I bought the new coal color and the willow green. I'm sure I will buy at least 2 more as I just love these. Easy to use, lasting power, no smudges and a minimum of shimmer. They glide on smooth with no tugging and you can leave the line sharp or blend with your finger. More then one color blends easily together. I am so glad these are back in their new form. My only wish is that they would make a softer gray. The coal is a little dark, I can blend it out and it looks fine but a soft medium gray would be so much more flattering to most skin tomes.
