Clinique Chubby Stick Intense: Hey! I'm INTENSE!
Me: No way. You're kidding me. You're a lip balm.
Clinique: Oh yeah? Try me, sistah.
Me: *applies Chubby Stick on lips

I guess that pretty much sums up my experience with this product, but I'm going to provide an in-depth review anyway because that's just me-I love talking here on my blog. :)

We're all aware that the classic Chubby Stick will always remain as Clinique's best- seller, but I do believe that this baby equally deserves that title too! This fab product perfectly marries lipstick, lip balm, and lip treatment! Sorry, classic Chubby Stick, this is now my favorite. :)


Chubby Stick Intense pretty much has the same ingredients of its older sister (Jojoba Oil, Shea Butter, and Mango Seed Butter), but the difference is the former is overdosed with pigmentation. It comes in 8 shades.

The packaging brings to mind my favorite chubby crayons by Crayola. In grade school, you're the coolest kid if you have these fat crayons, or the 68-piece crayon collection. Right? :D

Looking for a very, very, very moisturizing and very, very, very pigmented lip product mashed into a single, convenient packaging? Look no further and click READ MORE! :D

Chubby Stick Intense layered twice

Admittedly, I didn't expect that its pigmentation would be THIS good because I've had a couple of the same product (others even came from premium brands) and they were just so-so in this department. The first time I've used Chubby Stick, I'm already a believer! Texture is very emollient (literally like Shea Butter) and feels super soft, smooth, and nice, and it just banishes dry areas almost instantly. Finish is almost comparable to a Satin lipstick. Maybe some of you would contend and say that pigmentation is just okay, but for a lip balm, it is superbly pigmented already. It has this yummy sweet smell. My minor issue is, the tip of the actual product is a lil' too wide and big for me to line my lips properly-I'd always have to clean up the corners of my lips after application.


Mightiest Maraschino is a cherry red shade with a hint of pink-It's a summery and laid- back kind of red. It's super rich yet such a breeze to wear, and it also has some line- concealing effect. Staying power is so-so since finish is emollient: It stays for around 2 hours if untouched and fades and bleeds for a little after a meal and few sips of coffee, albeit gradually. It transfers heavily too since it doesn't really set onto the lips and has a slippery finish. Also, if used consistently, it really helps alleviate dryness.

There are days when I want to wear lipstick, but my lips are not cooperating. In these moments, I always reach for Chubby Stick Intense because it gives me what I want without having to sacrifice anything. (Hello dry, irritating lips!) That said, I love how it allows me to be the boss sometimes! :D

In case you're wondering how it compares to Revlon Just Bitten Lip Stain, here's a quick low-down:

Chubby Stick Intense: Moisturizing; Satin Finish; Pigmented; Good for casual or special events
Revlon Just Bitten Lip Stain: Hydrating; Glossy Finish; Sheer; Good for casual events

 I used this product in Sydney's 12-degree temperature and found out that it's very good for cold, dry conditions where traditional lipstick would just feel even more drying and regular lip balm won't suffice. I reckon it's good for everyone, generally, because it's such a soothing, protective product that takes care of our lips continuously as we go about our busy, daily lives.

  3. woah, that is INTENSE! i only tried the original formula of the clinique chubby sticks... the difference in color payoff is miles apart...

  4. i love the color payoff! but not the price for a lipbalm

  5. Very pigmented! I love it! Always wanted to try this one... now I have all the more reason to! Thanks for posting :)

  6. I already have that! And I really like it too! :))

  7. I love the shade on you!

  8. Whoa! lipbalm yan? hehe. Nice pigmentation. worth the price, to add that clinique products are hypoallergenic.

  9. woah! i love it because it is really pigmented! but it is kinda pricey for a lipbalm....

  10. Hi, Ms. Martha! Good morning! Ang dami ko ng natunung na mga beauty blogger but it's either I don't get a reply or maybe they haven't read my posts. I have small eyes and they are uneven too.. I was wondering panu ko ba gagawing mukhang magkasing laki sila. Medyo banlag din kasi ako so may angle na halata yun pagkabanlag ko :(

  11. Hi, Ms. Martha! I have a Q. My eyes are small and they are not even too.. I was wondering kung panu ko gagawing mukhang magkasing laki sila. Medyo banlag din ako,, so may mga angles na halata ang pagkabanlag ko.. help? :)

    btw. that red lipstick look good on you. ^_^

  12. Would want to check the other shades as well :) Red would really not go well with me especially a pink undertone one. Couldnt use it at work without my co-engineers checking out my lipcolor in a meeting from time to time.. need to catch their attention for what I am saying and not for what I am wearing..lol..
    Probably next year though.. the price would be out of the budget for this month :)
    Thanks for the review though since dry chap lips has always been a problem to me.. I always have my dandy EOS layered by my fave lipstck daily for now :)

  13. I fell inlove with the color, too good to be true na this is just alip balm. Since its very expensive, How i wish they improve the staying power so you can get what you pay for.

  14. girls in red lippy always get my attention on the lips firt but this one is different. your beautiful flawless face got my attention first before i even realized it was a red lippy review. you carried the red lippy well instead of the other way around. you're simply the bomb gorgeous :)

  15. Looks so good, and it's a classic red too! I think for a lip product of this quality the price is worth it.

  16. i have tried their other shade when clinique offers a free makeover on facebook. As what u've said, i agree! it instantly alleviates dryness. it was really good esp. for people like me who has a very dry lips.

  17. Brownoso: Thanks! :D

    Katrina: Yup! It's my go-to red lipstick nowadays. :)

    Becomingsleek: Yup! Surprised that it's pretty affordable! :)

    Sherwin: Nice to have a guy in here! Thank you for the compliment! :)

    Leilani: I guess staying power will never be good on moist lip products like this one, but I think it's still worth it because the moisturizing effect is the bomb!

    Winnie: Now that you mentioned eos, I suddenly missed mine! :)

    Aisha: Hi Aisha! Please check my fake it: how to make eyes look bigger blog post. It should help you out. :)

    Issa: It's actually more than a lipbalm. :)

    Aura: Cool! :)

    Roselsmomdiary: Thanks! :)

    Maria: Thanks for reading too! :D

    Ravene: Yup, the hypoallergenic part is what makes it a winner as well.
