Clinique Chubby Sticks were among the first to start the wave of retractable, stick form cosmetics. After the tremendous success with the lip range, Clinique released the same version for eyes and cheeks. I got four of these shades recently – Fuller Fudge, Whopping Willow, Pink and Plenty, and Ample Amber. I will be reviewing the shade “Fuller Fudge” today, which is described as a bronze brown shade.
A super-wearable, sheer, creamy color for stunning eyes.
What it does:
This sheer wash of lightweight, creamy color is easy to wear and will make your eyes pop. Simply glide this layerable and long-wearing formula on for a swift tint, contour with another to add depth, and yet another to highlight. Best of all, it never needs sharpening—just swivel up to reveal more of the shadow.
- Apply directly to eyelids.
- Blend gently upward and outward; build to desired intensity.
- Layer with multiple shades.
- Never needs sharpening: simply swivel up to reveal more eye shadow.
- Remove with your favorite Clinique eye makeup remover.
17 USD for 0.1 oz product.
My Experience with Clinique Fuller Fudge Chubby Stick Shadow Tint For Eyes:
Packaging: The outer box is the same as the Clinique Chubby Stick for lips packaging. Inside, we have the chubby stick, with a silver cap on top. The cap closes with a click, which really makes it quite secure to be carried around. It has a silver base too, which can be twisted for retraction. The body is plastic; with the color corresponding with the shade of the stick inside. The stick seems to wobble a bit inside the plastic casing, but with continuous use, that problem has settled down. All details are written on the box packaging. The stick is rounded at the tip, which really sits quite nicely on the upper lid globe; and makes usage really very easy.
Shade: The shade is a dark bronze brown shade with micro shimmer in it. The shimmer is extremely fine, not gritty at all; and visible only on closer inspection. It is a nice neutral shade for every day use; or for creating a quick smoky eye as well.
Texture: The texture is not very soft, but not very hard either. It is of medium texture, semi-hard consistency. It feels like a cream initially, but applies like a powder. It does not require too much pressure for application, and does not crumble under pressure as well. It glides quite smoothly on the lids. It sets very quickly onto the lids, but gives you just enough time for a bit of blending. After setting, it simply does not budge till you actually remove it at the end of the day.
Pigmentation: This is a tinted eye shadow, not very high on pigment. One swipe will produce a light tint of color; however, the best part is that you can go to and fro over the lids without the shadow caking up or creasing at all. It can be built up to medium pigmentation.
Staying Power: It lasts and lasts and lasts. Without a primer, it lasts for around 8-10 hours on my lids without creasing or fading. Even if you want to top up during the day, you can easily do that and it will not crumble at all.
