Clinique are known for making high quality makeup and skincare products.
I attended the launch for ‘Eye Want Candy’ Clinique event and reviewed the latest 2013 collections held at Estee Lauder’s swanky head office in Mayfair.
Chubby Sticks Shadow Tint For Eyes
This creamy shadow stick offers long lasting colour with twelve different shades of colours to choose from; Bountiful Beige, Lots O’latte, Fuller Fudge, Ample Amber, Whopping Willow, Portly Plum, Pink & Plenty, Curvaceous Coal, Lavish Lilac, Big Blue, Mighty Moss & Massive Midnight.
Beautifully contained in a colourful, shade-matched, crayon-like barrel, this silky sheer formula stays on the eye lids firmly without causing creases or dust to fall onto cheeks. I would highly recommend using this product if you are new to makeup as it is easy to use without the hassle of using a brush.
You simply apply the stick to your eye lid and slowly blend with your fingers to make it even. I chose to use two colours and layered three coats worth. I then used BB cream that acts as a primer. I managed to get at least 8 hours wear with this product and was very impressed. I preferred using my fingers instead of a brush as it was easier.
