Clinique Chunkiest Chili Chubby Stick Intense
Clinique Chunkiest Chili Chubby Stick Intense ($16.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “brown red.” It’s a warm-toned, slightly muted red with a frosted finish. CoverGirl Captivate is a touch less warm-toned. Make Up For Ever #44 is similar. Guerlain Luxure is darker. Guerlain Habit Rouge is also similar.
It delivered mostly opaque color coverage, and the consistency of the pencil was creamy, so it glided on beautifully and evenly. It was lightweight, didn’t cling, and felt comfortable to wear. Chunkiest Chili wore really well, too, clocking in at just under six hours and did leave behind a soft stain. It was lightly hydrating–it won’t replace a good lip balm–but it won’t dry out lips. I’m not certain why Clinique is touting this formulas having only medium coverage–nearly every single one I’ve tried so far as borderline opaque coverage.
