Clinique Curviest Caramel Chubby Stick Intense
Clinique Curviest Caramel Chubby Stick Intense ($16.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “beige plum.” It’s a subtly warm-toned coral brown–there’s some orange and a smidgen of rosiness to brighten the brown coloring of this shade. It has a soft, luminous finish. Bobbi Brown Guava is slightly lighter. Chanel Pimpante is brighter, warmer. Cle de Peau R9 is pinker and shimmery. Burberry Devon Sunset is pinker.
This shade had mostly opaque color coverage with a very light translucency overall. The pencil is creamy enough to apply evenly and easily without tugging or pulling at the lip, but it’s not so creamy that it slides around on the lip, so the wear time is good, too–a nice four and a half hours. It’s lightly hydrating while worn and doesn’t leave you wanting to make a mad dash for your lip balm after it wears away. Clinique’s Chubby Sticks all twist-up, so there’s no need to sharpen.
