Clinique Broadest Berry Chubby Stick Intense
Clinique Broadest Berry Chubby Stick Intense

Clinique Broadest Berry Chubby Stick Intense ($16.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “beige plum.” It’s a muted, reddish plum with a natural sheen–not frosted or shimmery but enough of luminosity that it doesn’t look matte. Tom Ford Casablanca is rosier. NARS Christina is darker, less warm-toned, and shimmery. MAC Brick-o-la is a touch browner. Chanel Etole is very similar in color. Chanel Rouge Orage is less plum.

One of my favorite features of Clinique’s Chubby Stick range is that they’re twist-up pencils, so there is no need to sharpen–which means there is no wasted product being sharpened off of the point! No need to freeze, just twist and go. Broadest Berry has very nearly opaque color coverage; which is great if that’s what you prefer, but the Intense range is only supposed to have medium coverage (“not quite sheer, not quite opaque–just the perfect happy medium,” according to Clinique).  Broadest Berry wore five hours on me, and it was lightly moisturizing during that time.

A

It's a bit more pigmented than one would expect, but it applies evenly and easily, and it wore well, too.

  1. Hm, special color, I can’t decide if I like it or not lol :-)

  2. Marina

    Love the color! I already have one of these in roomiest rose (I think that’s the name!) that’s similar though so will pass on it. It’s a great formula though!

    I have this and I love it – I love them all, and I’m only missing mighty maraschino and heftiest hibiscus. I like the opaque color coverage, and it’s so hydrating and comfortable to wear.

      do you think this would be a good choice for someone with constantly chapped lips? I am always stuck using chap-sticks and tinted lip balms, but I saw moisturizing and was like hmmmmm.

      • blueraccoon

        I think this isn’t as good as a regular lip balm, but it’s pretty comfortable to wear and you might be okay with it while you have it on. I wear them sometimes in place of lip balm but my lips aren’t usually chapped that badly; when they are I go for more moisturizing products.

    I don’t have this one-I like the color. I have Grandest Grape and Roomiest Rose-they are both great performers!

    Christine in the product & review faq you wrote it’s $13 instead of $16 :)

    I’m so excited to check these out! One of my favorite every day lip colors was their “old” chubby stick in Sweetheart. A coworker admitted that she just thought I had a pretty lip color naturally; the color was THAT great. The new generation of chubbies were just too sheer to compare to Sweetheart’s beauty, so the higher opacity in these may be just what I’ve been missing!

  7. Bruna

    How does this product compare to that Urban Decay super saturated lip color?

  8. my friend gifted me this and am soooooo glad to have the most beautiful Clinique chubby stick shade :D i loveeeeeeee it to bits :D
    you are looking beautifulllll C :D :D

    • Christine: You look gorgeous and its a stunning colour indeed.

      Rash: I can’t wait to see it on your stunning face. <3 So happy you like it.

  9. These are gorgeous. I think I will check out the original version though–I like sheerer washes of color better. I am very curious about the new Neutrogena ones, though–I wonder how they compare. Definitely going to grab some this week!

  10. nice shade, do you use any thing beneath lip color?

  11. Wow such a pretty color on you!! I still havent tried the chubby sticks but if i do buy definitely want to try broadest berry!

  12. Peggy

    That is a gorgeous color on you!

  13. Miranda

    I have a couple of Clinique’s Chubby Sticks but I find they only last a couple of hours and for the price not really worth it. I colors I think are nice and it is moisturizing but doesn’t last very long ~ same goes for their new Shadow Chubby sticks, even with primer on lids~ :(

  14. Jennifer

    Hi Christine! :) do these have a scent or taste? The tarte lip pencils have a minty scent that I don’t like and was wondering! Thanks!

    I just bought this product in Chunkiest Chili (silly name). As a redhead I have always been really afraid to wear red lipstick, but it turned out absolutely beautiful. In addition, I didn’t have lip balm on prior to putting it on (as I usually do) and it made my lips feel amazing.
