Beauty Splurge vs. Steal of the Week: Clinique Chubby Stick

Clinique Chubby Stick for less!

In this weekly column, I’m bringing you my favorite budget-friendly beauty products - and their high-end equivalents. This week, we’re chatting tinted lip balms! Also make sure to check out my blog, for even more beauty product reviews and tips.

The Clinique Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm was definitely the first BIG, “chubby” crayon-like lip balm that I can remember; in fact, I remember when it launched and thinking “wow, I kind of love the idea of a big lip balm with some actual GOOD color to it” since other lip balms I’ve tried usually, how do we say it, lack? I’ve been testing out some good (cheaper) options over the past month or so and I am in LOVE with REVLON ColorBurst Matte Balm. For one, the color is velvet-like and two, it’s retractable, which means no sharpener required! The Clinique version doesn’t require sharpening either but, for some reason, the REVLON version just seems to last me longer! Plus, I love the fact that it’s also infused with combination of shea, mango and coconut butter, making it the perfect product for dry lips (like mine).

Good to know, I have the clinique one, it came in a gift - I'd be interested to try out the revlon one as well.
