Why the HELL did hey discontinue Blackberry (09) when they modified the look and application of the chubby stick!? Can't figure it out and have yet to find something comparable to that original crayon color.

These Chubby Sticks (the original shades) and I have a love/hate relationship. For those that are not big lipstick fans or just want something very conservative, these are fantastic! But for those of us that love more ooomph, these can be a bit frustrating. $17 for a tube of almost nothing-ness? But, on the other hand, you do get easy, tame, subdued lips, easy application and portability. Even to describe the shade differences seem so silly some times because on more than one occasion I have had a Clinique rep tell me, "they all look alike...it really doesn't matter". Wha? This is your job to sell the nuances of different shades! I believe I had Whole Lotta Honey, Graped Up and Fuller Fig on my hand when these statements were made. I also had problems finding a shade that looked great on me. Graped Up is the only one I really enjoy or feel like it does anything for me. But I digress. All in all, not a bad product. If these were $10 or less, I would probably buy a lot more to play with. All that being said, for what it is, it is a great product (twist up pencil, light, glossy, conservative). It just isn't a favorite for me.

So for a long time I thought these were just overpriced tinted lip balm. And they kind of are... but they're great overpriced tinted lip balm. Better than many far more expensive tinted lip balms. They just make your lips look great and feel smooth. I like them much better than Burt's Bees.

In love!!!! Absolute Holy Grail lipstick/lip liner/gloss!!!!! I currently have three of these and even though I don't care for the price, the truth is they last for a couple of years (at least for me.) They not only give you gorgeous color, they line your lips perfectly! If you want bigger, plump lips, without looking fake and overdrawn this is the lip product you need!

I am in my 40's so I haven't been a customer of Clinique in a very long time, well actually I own their Teddy Bear eye-shadow pallet. But they hit pay dirt with this product!

They mainly are true to color but I would ask questions before buying the stick. Example: midnight maraschino 03, is true to color. Its like a cherry, candy red. It is moisturizing. However I also have voluptuous violet 16, and it is very light and sheer. It looks nothing like the packaging. I also have broadest berry 07, and it is true to color and an excellent choice for overdrawing your lips without the fake look. It was my first chubby stick and I fell in love with them.

F.Y.I. you do not use a pencil sharpener, they just twist up. All of them so far have been moisturizing and at least if not a lot, glossy. Like I mentioned though I would ask questions when at the counter. I used to be a Counter Manager for Prescriptives back in the day and have also worked for Bare Minerals and you can learn a lot from the girls and guys at the counters!

Stay beautiful!

This is the perfect harmony of lip balm and tint! I have very dry lips that always peel and bleed, year round. This keeps my lips hydrated during the day and doesn't leave behind and thick filmy layer. It absorbes nicely. The shades vary as far as how much tint they have. My favorite is strawberry, a nice natural flushed rosiness added to my lips. I dont like full coverage lipsticks, so this is perfect for me.

I bout 3 of these on line and they were very disappointing, they were sheer and had little colour. They also dried my lips out. Terrible product.

I have this in multiple colors and I like all of them but I wanted to write a separate review for the color poppin' poppy. In the packaging the color looks like a bright almost neon orange. Knowing that these are sheer I bought it anyways. I tested the color on my hand and sure enough it was super sheer and a pretty coral color. But when I put it on it looks totally different! Crazy it almost looks reddish......i'm not sure if I like it. It's a confusing color.

I bought a Holiday Kit that has 4 different range of colors and I love them! Love how creamy they are!! Stays on for a good few hours on me which is good.. I only reapply once a day.. Will buy full one once I am done with these travel sizes...

One of my FAVORITE lipsticks ever!!! I have several colors including 'bountiful blush' and 'curviest caramel'. They are extremely moisturizing and last quite awhile on the lips. It's a very nice glossy lipstick which I really like. They have so many beautiful mauve and nude colors. I can't wait to purchase more! I believe EVERY girl should have one of these in her makeup bag. They even make the chubby sticks in 'intense' and they are even more amazing on the lips and the same price. I have nothing bad to say about these :) I love them!

I love these babies! I'm not a makeup person at all but do like a bit of lip colour. I find these perfect - beautiful and creamy and they don't dry out my lips. I like the range of colours and have quite a few. Even as the colour fades, it doesn't dry out my lips although sometimes you do end up with the colour sticking to any 'flaky' bits on your lips. For a subtle colour, I pop on some Vaseline and then a thin coat of the chubby stick. To make it more of a lipstick, use a lip brush to apply and you get quite a strong colour. They can transition from day to night quite easily depending on how thickly you apply it.

These are great for throwing in the handbag and swiping on in the rear view mirror to give yourself a bit of a lift. I've bought these for all my friends and they also love them. They last ages too if, like me, you don't apply it too heavily. I'm not giving it 5 stars because I'd still like a bit of extra moisture in there but still a great product.
