Clinique recently held an Instagram competition to celebrate reaching 20K followers, the prize was a bunch of their products worth £200+ and I was fortunate to win them! You can catch up the Clinique prize post here. Last month, I sung high praises of the Bottom Lash Mascara & High Impact Extreme Volume Mascara – both of which I am still using on a daily basis and still love! This week it’s time to show case Clinique’s contouring products: Chubby Stick Sculpting Contour and Chubby Stick Sculpting Highlighter.
*Clinique Chubby Stick Sculpting Contour – £19.00
The first thing I noticed about the stick was “omg the colour!”. It looks incredibly dark when swatched and even I panicked a little thinking “how on earth will this suit me?!”. I applied it to the hollow of my cheeks, jaw line and temples and blended it in with a Real Techniques buffing brush. The product immediately melted away into my skin and didn’t stain at all – phew! The colour blends extremely well and the product is oil-free and very nourishing on the skin. It’s shaped in such a way as well that it doesn’t need to be sharpened which is super handy. The price seems a little steep for what it actually is considering how broad the ‘contouring market’ is, but it will certainly last a long time.
*Clinique Chubby Stick Sculpting Highlighter – £19.00
The highlighter is very shimmery and I’d describe it as a champaign silver kind of shade. I find that I need to add more product in order to make it show up but I really enjoy using it to give my skin a dewy glow. I apply it to my cheekbones, forehead, bridge of my nose and cupids bow. I blend it with a soft blush brush by Real Techniques. It has a lovely creamy texture, making it easy to blend into the skin without rubbing away any makeup that was previously applied. I’d definitely repurchase this, it’s a nice alternative to powder highlighters that I own and gives a nice subtle shimmer.
