When it comes to my everyday makeup, I’ve kind of developed a routine which feels like I could do with my eyes closed. A light foundation, a little undereye concealer, mascara and some bronzer and I’m good to go. I’ve all but abandoned lipsticks and glosses during the week.
Even though I’ve been loving my new paired back makeup bag, I was feeling the need for a new lip product. So, when I was perusing the Clinique counter, I couldn’t resist picking up one of their Chubby Stick Balms. They feel like they were made for lip-colour-sceptics like me. Promising subtle washes of colour with much-needed hydration, they’re the perfect summer lip product!
I picked up 03 Budding Blossom, which is probably the lightest, most subtle of the line up. Almost colourless, the balm adds a seriously subtle pink tinge to lips which is a serious case of my lips but better! As it wears the pink deepens slightly, leaving lips a pretty rosy shade.
