Meet the product that made me love eye makeup. I have been using it so often in different ways – with eyeliner, without one, for nights out, and even for girls day out. Basically, I am obsessed with it.
Sheer wash of lightweight, creamy colour slips on. Layerable and long-wearing. Versatile, too. Glide one on for a swift wash of colour. Contour with another to add depth, and yet another to highlight. There’s no need to stop at just one. Appropriate for sensitive eyes and contact lens-wearers.
How to Use:
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.
Recap after each use; an audible click tells you it’s securely closed.
Remove with your favorite Clinique eye makeup remover.
My Experience with Clinique Portly Plum Chubby Stick Shadow Tint For Eyes:
Packaging: Since these Chubby Stick for Eyes is the sister range of Chubby Stick for Lips, the packaging is just the same; primary and secondary packaging both. The stick is color coded and is easy to identify if you own many. Also, it comes with a nice, functional cap that keeps the product secure. This is a no fail packaging! I have travelled with it, have kept it carelessly and have even forgotten it at a friend’s place once, and it didn’t get affected. The product inside the tube remained secured and as good as new. Just like all the other Clinique products, all the information regarding the product is printed on the packaging, and for more, you can refer to their website.
Shade: Let’s talk about the shade now, since it is gorgeous to the T! As you can make out from the pictures and from the name of this variant, it is a beautiful plum color with hints of shimmer in it. I have dark brown eyes, and it enhances the color of my eyes really well. The shade is sheer enough that it can be worn during the days without looking out of place, and can be built up so that night looks can be created.
The shimmer in this shade is super fine and does not irritate the eyelids at all. But, if you are looking for a super pigmented and dark shade, forget this one! It is gorgeous and sheer, in a very good way. I am head over heels with the shade. Really, really love it! Keep one thing in mind before buying this that you cannot apply it as intensely on eyes as you do on your hand while swatching as it will require you to put pressure.
Texture: It’s super soft and glides very easily on the eyelids. 2-3 swipes maximum are required for the color to show up on my lids. It feels so beautifully creamy yet powdery. The great thing about this one is that even if I put a little pressure while applying it, it does not crumble or break down. It sets very quickly and nicely on my eyelids. As I mentioned earlier, its shimmer is super fine and does not hamper the application. Also, I feel this shimmer actually enhances the look of the shade and how it looks on the eyes.
Staying Power: This shadow could stay on my eyes forever if I do not remove it. It does not budge on its own, but if I rub it, it gets removed which is sad for me. I avoid touching my eyes and it stays there until I remove it. If I do not touch my eyes and do not remove it, it stays for 8+ hours even (that’s the maximum time I have tested it for). It does not crease, but gets faded a little with time. To remove this shadow, I just need a wet wipe.
Honestly, I do not have any complaints with this shadow tint. The shade, packaging, texture, staying power – everything is superb about this product. Since it is not powdery, it is perfect for sensitive eyes and contact lens-wearers, as claimed by the brand.
