Imagine glowing, rosy cheeks with the swipe of a stick. Well Clinique has got it sorted with their new Chubby Stick Cheer Colour Balm, all the prettiness and ease of a cream blush in a convenient, portable stick-crayon form. Clinique have really mastered makeup on the go for women everywhere with their Chubby Stick Moisturising Lip Colour Balms and the Chubby Stick Eye Shadow Tints for Eyes, all perfect for quick, fuss-free makeup on the move with no mirror required. With the eyes and lips covered Clinique has turned their attention to the cheeks and launched four new chunky cheek colour balms which offer a sheer, creamy shade to give you a perfectly rosy look for all skin tones.
Clinique’s Chubby Stick Cheek Colour Balm (£19)* are 100% fragrance free, allergy tested and are the ultimate blush without the brush. The dome-shaped design glides smoothly and effortlessly onto the apples of your cheeks, depositing a long-wearing formula with a glowing but not sticky finish. The consistency is silky and fairly sheer on the skin but is easily built up to an intense and gives a lovely finish without being too drying or cakey at all. A combination of Lecithin, Squalane and a healthy dose of vitamin E gives the formula its non-drying properties whilst keeping it water, sweat and humidity-resistant. Available in four shades; 01. Amp’d Up Apple, 02. Robust Rhubarb, 03. Roly Poly Rosy and 04. Plumped Up Peony, these colour sticks are easily swivelled up and blended out onto the cheeks either with a beauty sponge, foundation brush or simply the warmth of your fingertips (my preferred way to apply these balms). My favourite shade has to be Robust Rhubarb which is the prettiest coral-pink shade but I think Plumped Up Peony will be the perfect Autumn Winter cheek colour paired with some berry lips and smokey eyes.
