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!

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

I still cannot believe that these sticks pack such a punch of colour. Now i will definitely have to check these (really, Clinique??…’chubby’?…) out.

I have this in my purse right now, and love it. It’s a pretty color, and flexible too. My skin’s a light neutral-cool, sallow with ruddy patches (joy). My face functions like a sifter for 75% of colors, and this one passed.

This really is pigmented, moreso than I expected. A pretty shade on you! I love the idea of these sort of lip products, pencil-style, but I had a mini size from some GWP from Clinique of this and I found it really moved throughout the day, I had color OUTside my lips, which has never happened to me before

I’m really starting to love these after reading your reviews on them! I feel like at this price point they allow me to experiment with colors I wouldn’t normally try! Also, they all look so pretty on you!!
