Clinique Chubby Stick Intense

Hi Everyone,

I've been trying to find the best time to post this, what with the MUA Power Pouts being realised I wanted to space them out. I never really fell into the Hype of the Clinique Chubby Sticks, My Mum, Aunt and Cousin seemed to like them, but It wasn't until a month ago until I finally gave in...
I had seen this colour pop up quite a bit on the amazing Pixi2woo's Video's, So I told myself I just had to go see it in person. I finally got round to doing it and I fell in love, Unlike the original Chubby Sticks this is a Chubby Stick Intense, The difference?

Well the Chubby Stick Intense's are just jam packed full with pigment while still being really moisturising on the lips, You can use a tiny bit and sheer it out, or still only use a little bit and get a really bold colour!
I got the Colour Heftiest Hibiscus Which is kind of a very Orange Red, Now I tend to steer clear of orange and I don't really wear Red either so this was a little out of the comfort zone. Even though I love a bright lip, But I took the plunge after having my favourite Clinique Girl test it out on me and bought it.

When trying it on I was told that It does come out as more of a red on some people and more of an orange on others, For me its more of a red shade which I was quite pleased about.
The packaging is quite heavy compared to the cheaper versions, I love the the metal Cap and bottom as it makes it look expensive and for the price I think the packaging should be sturdy and luxurious.

Overall I think this has encouraged me to try colours I'm not used to and venture out into oranges and reds instead of constant pink, I think its worth the price as it lasts for so long on the lips and fades nicely, while still moisturising for quite a while after application.

They are £16.00 and are available at Boots, also in 7 other colours too.

Have you tried the Chubby Stick Intense's? Do you think the high street versions are just as good? I may do a comparison post of the different Chubby Sticks and they're Cheaper Alternatives too.
