REVIEW of Clinique Chubby Stick in 16 Voluptuous Violet With SWATCHES

Hi chickadees!
So, was my experience with Clinique's Chubby Stick in Oversized Orange just a fluke? Not if Clinique's Chubby Stick in Voluptuous Violet is anything to go by. Where Oversized Orange was the lip product I was reaching for the most in the summer, Voluptuous Violet was my go-to color for the fall/winter. It can go berry or (if you really build up the color) you can definitely get a stronger sense of the purple if you pair it with the right makeup and outfit colors.

It's a bit strange to pick up a purple lip balm and think of it as an every day color but because the product is so sheer, I find that it goes with just about everything.You just have to be careful if you want to go for a very dramatic eye look or bold cheeks when you build up this lippie because together it can look a bit overwhelming. I've been having a lot of issues in the past few months with dryness and allergic reactions to the products I've been testing. This product is perfect for those times because you get a bit of color but it won't catch in any flakies or accentuate the dryness of your lips.

Link to Oversized Orange Review:

My opinion of the product is basically the same as my opinion of Oversized Orange, though I find Voluptuous Violet glides on a little more smoothly. Both products keep my lips nicely moisturized and provide a sheer wash of color. But I liked Voluptuous Violet so much that I bought a backup after only using it for a few months.
