Clinique Plushest Punch Chubby Stick Intense
Clinique Plushest Punch Chubby Stick Intense ($16.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “raspberry pink.” It’s a bright, bold raspberry pink with a natural sheen. Tarina Tarantino Fuchsia is darker, redder. MAC Impassioned is brighter. Guerlain Gigi is very comparable.
It has full color coverage, and the pencil has a great consistency–just creamy enough to apply evenly and smoothly but not thick, so it adheres well and doesn’t feather or bleed. I’ve mentioned it before, but it bears repeating: this range is very much an opaque one, though Clinique describes the coverage as “perfectly in between” sheer and opaque. The other issue I’ve had is that these aren’t that moisturizing (some better than others). Plushest Punch was moderately hydrating, and of the ones I’ve tried thus far, it was the most hydrating. It wore long and well, though, topping five hours with a very subtle residual stain that lingered for the next hour.
