Clinique Mightiest Maraschino Chubby Stick Intense
Clinique Mightiest Maraschino Chubby Stick Intense ($16.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “classic red.” It’s a rich, vibrant cherry red with strong blue undertones and a natural sheen. MAC Ronnie Red is very comparable. Guerlain Calligraphy #5 is pinker. NARS Dragon Girl is darker, bluer-based. MAC Ruby Woo is darker.
It applied evenly and smoothly without tugging or pulling on the lip when applied straight from the pencil. I didn’t experience any feathering or bleeding during the six hours this wore for–and there was a soft red stain left behind that lingered for another hour or so. The consistency is lightweight and thin, but comfortable, as it doesn’t cling and get sucked into the lips. I didn’t find this shade hydrating, though it was not drying. The color coverage is very nearly opaque, which isn’t quite the “perfect” in-between sheer and opaque as described–so that might be to your advantage or not!
|I wish it was more hydrating, because that's part of the appeal of the Chubby Stick formula. It's also nearly full coverage, even though it's listed as medium coverage.|
