Clinique Chubby Stick Intense (03) Mightiest Marschino – Review, Swatches and a drugstore dupe

Posted on Sep 2 2013 - 7:01am by agnibanya
The CLINIQUE Chubby Stick Intense (03) Mightiest Maraschino (INR 1025 /10 OZ./3g) is a bright blue red with soft sheen. The formula definitely has that soft cushion-y feel on the lips as it claims , perhaps because of the mango and Shea butter in its formula. This particular shade applied completely opaque
on my lips as opposed to the medium coverage that it claims, and although that’s a great thing for me as I love opaque lip colors, it might or might not work for you. I find the formula really comfortable to wear. The chubby stick can directly be applied to the lips, and though the texture is quite thin while application , it sets down after about 5-10 mins of application , from glossy to natural soft plush looking lips and I did not experience any feathering with this formula, and even after 4+ hrs of stay, it left a soft stain on my lips and definitely more hydrated than what they were before application.
The packaging is very user friendly with a twist up bottom , that you can swivel up and down as per your convinience. If you smell very closely, you can detect a faint Shea butter smell.

Overall, it’s a great lip color, with the most incredible lightweight texture, the color payoff like a lipstick and the goodness of a great lip balm all clubbed into one tube.                                           
A must try from Clinique, especially if you’ve always secretly wished that the Original chubby sticks had a little more color to them. 

And I found a drugstore dupe in my stash:
