Hope you are doing good. It started raining in Bangalore and the climate has been amazing today. I feel the urge to eat hot pakoras and hot elaichi tea now. How is July treating you all? I have been shopping quite a bit these days and very eagerly waiting for sales to start in July. Counting days already 😀 Rati’s recent Maldives pics have inspired me so much that I have planned to go the Yoga way from this Sunday to see a more fitter me. Wish me luck.
I recently shopped from Clinique. This is my first buy from them and I am quite overwhelmed with the way they treat their customers with care. I am looking forward to picking more products from them in future. The product I picked is from Clinique – New Chubby Stick Cheek Color Balm – Roly Poly Rosy. Isnt the name so funny and rhyming.

My experience about Clinique Roly Poly Rosy Chubby Stick Cheek Color Balm :
I visited the Clinique store to check out some new shades of Clinique Pop lip colors and zeroed on two of them. Unfortunately, the SA realized that both are out of stock. She then showed me these chubby stick cheek color and told me that they are new ones. I have been on the look out for blush sticks and cream blushes for a while now and so was convinced to try these on. The Robust Rhubarb and the Roly Poly Rosy looked great on my skin tone while the other two just washed me off. I finally decided and picked up the Roly Poly Rosy because of the beautiful color flush it was offering to my cheeks. I must admit here that the name also quite attracted me.
The Clinique Chubby Stick Cheek Color Balms are a little fatter version of the Chubby stick lip stains from Clinique, with a flat top. It has a beautiful broad silver cap. It really looks and feels huge. Its super pigmented and one needs to know the right way to blend it to not look like a clown. I am practicing the art these days with brush. With fingers it blends quite easily. It stay on my skin which is normal to oily these days for about 3-4 hours. And for oily still it has to be reapplied after 2 hours or so.
The color is a beautiful rosy pink color as the name states and the texture is matte-creamy (which means its not very flowy but easy to apply to). There is no shimmer and hence can be easily worn to work. Though it glides and melts beautifully with finger tips, one needs to be careful to not apply too much pressure which might result in complete wiping of blush. The texture is buildable though. Though I liked the new makeup toy( was amused for a long time with the packaging) that I bought, I feel it is expensive. Otherwise its indeed a good product.
Pros of Clinique Roly Poly Rosy Chubby Stick Cheek Color Balm :
• Travel-friendly neat packaging
• Super pigmented and color is easily buildable
• Creamy texture – Easy to blend
• Available in 4 shades (non shimmery)
• A Neat everyday wearable shade

Cons of Clinique Roly Poly Rosy Chubby Stick Cheek Color Balm :
