My Favorite Lip Balm

For the longest time, I shied away from wearing lipstick as they made my lips crack and peel. However, there comes a time in a woman’s life when cherry Chapsticks just don’t cut it anymore. So the need for color had me go on a hunt for a product that would treat my lips like balm but be pigmented enough to pass for a lipstick.  

I found what I was looking for in Clinique’s chubby stick moisturizing lip colour balm.
Clinique chubby stickJust as advertised, it feels more like lip balm and is very comfortable on. It’s also very pigmented – I had to try on so many colors (they have 16 shades) to find the right fit for me (not too shockingly bright).  I finally settled with Super Strawberry.

After: The difference some color (and a small smile) makes. My lips look moisturized and I look more polished.

Have you ever tried this product? What did you think? 

Before I sign off, here’s a tip to keep your lips moisturized at night and feeling soft in the morning:
– Using your toothbrush, lightly brush your lips to remove flakes.
– Apply lip balm and keep it on while you sleep. (Good ol’ Chapstick will do the trick for this one.)

What I’m wearing:
H&M hat (love!) (similar here)
H&M necklace
Mexx blazer
Clinique chubby stick in Super Strawberry

What are your tips for soft and supple lips?  Do share them below!

  1. Very adorable Kerstie! Is your necklace a recent find at H&M? The color of the lip balm is very rich and it gives your lips that pretty glow! 🙂 – Lena

  2. “[T]here comes a time in a woman’s life when cherry Chapsticks just don’t cut it anymore.” Truth! I’ve heard a lot of good things about Cliniques chubby sticks. I always find my favorite lip products are balm-like with just a tint of color. My favorites are Revlon’s ColorBurst Lip Butters!

  3. I love all forms of the Clinqiue Chubby Stick, my favorite is Wopping Watermelon.
    There is the new Clinique Chubby Stick Baby Tint is apparently amazing, there are four shades and each reacts to the uses lips so no shade looks the same from person to person. It’s top of my September purchase list.
