I’ve been wanting to try this for the longest time. Clinique launched their Chubby Stick Shadow Tint for Eyes a few months ago, and it has finally reached our shores. I had my expectations before trying these out, because I’ve only read good reviews. However, those reviews are mostly by bloggers living overseas, with weather less hot and humid than ours. So, how did it fare here?
Like Clinique’s Chubby Sticks, these are a twist up mechanism. I love this because it is hassle free, no sharpening needed, and just super easy. The cap closes with a click so you don’t have to worry about throwing this into your handbag and tote it around. The cap won’t come off. I was sent Fuller Fudge, a lightly shimmery warm brown, borderline bronze. These Shadow Tint for Eyes are quite sheer, so if you want the colours to show up more, you’d have to layer them.
As a cream shadow, this texture is surprisingly powdery. It goes on with less slip, and it tugs a little, but it’s not a complaint at all. The colour is smooth and on me, one sheer layer appears a little patchy. I colour my eyes directly from the tube until I reach the intensity I want, then blend out the edges with my ring finger. It is very easy to apply. If I want the colour to be bolder, I just repeat the step. Fuller Fudge looks very natural on me, and I like to wear it with just a swipe of eyeliner and mascara.
Due to its powdery texture, it doesn’t crease on me until the 6th hour and that’s only on my inner eye where the fold of my lid is. This is absolutely amazing! I don’t apply any primer underneath or any eyeshadow on top to set it either. ON ITS OWN, it lasts on my oily lids for 6 friggin’ hours. After that, the colour fades a little, so I’ll just touch up a little. It’s so easy to touch up too. Just swipe, blend with fingers and ta-dah! I’ve been loving this because my eye makeup can last the whole day looking fresh. All because Fuller Fudge lasts and lasts and it’s just so easy to touch up. Photo below is how I wear Fuller Fudge alone, with just a black liner and mascara. For a full FOTD, you can read my previous Sunday Stash Shopping here.
One Chubby Stick Shadow Tint for Eyes costs RM60 and there are 8 shades available. It’s affordable, great quality, and I already have my eyes on the light beige and green one. Are you interested?
