clinique chubby stick moisturizing lip colour balm in pudgy peony review

I've had an obsession this summer with bright fuchsia pink lipsticks, it's a trend that I've been loving. While my go-to is the YSL Fuchsia in Rage on the weekends, it is really not appropriate for work. I find that the sheer Clinique Chubby Stick Lip Balm in Pudgy Peony ($17) is very wearable (also, much more affordable). It is also surprisingly low maintenance. It leaves a stain so it fades evenly and it feels moisturizing while you are wearing it. It has great color payoff, the "chubby stick" style is about as simple as it gets for application, and really just brings life to the face.

I could see it flattering a variety of skin tones, the sheer color lets your own lip color come through so it will appear unique on everyone. As summer comes to an end, this is an easy way to hold onto the season a little longer.
