Clinique Chubby Stick In Graped Up , Review , Photos , Swatch

I love makeup products in cute packaging. When Clinique first came up with the Chubby sticks I was instantly attracted ! How cute does it look? I love tinted lip balms in twist up packaging.

Clinique prices are usually exorbitant in India, so I waited till I could get it from US. When my brother was coming from US I got a bag full of beauty goodies. Clinique Chubby stick in Graped up was of the thing I got. This is a tinted lip balm in a pencil like packaging which twists up. I really like the consistency and the texture of the balm but I am not a big fan of the color. Graped up is a brown pink color which is usually my favorite kinda color but this one somehow does not suit my skintone so much.

Swatch of Clinique Chubby Stick In Graped Up

The Good?

  • I love the packaging. It’s a chubby pencil which twists up. No need for sharpening.
  • Its moisturizing. It will not cure severely chapped lips but its just adequately moisturizing.
  • Its quite pigmented. Somewhat like a luster finish lipstick. I like it when tinted lip balms have decent pigmentation.
  • I think 15 dollars is a reasonable price for this.

The Not So Good?

  • I don’t like the color so much. This is what happens when you get a guy to go makeup shopping! It just doesn’t suit my skintone so much. I wish I had bought a better color.

Makeup-Mantra Rating:- 7/10

I love the concept of lip balms in cute chubby sticks. If I get a chance I will definitely pick up one other color. Have you tried the Clinique Chubby sticks? Which color is your favorite?


  1. hi u have a very interesting blog. I like the colour very much of the chubby stick. I also went in for the DDmg but instead the sales man put in DDML. Its not too oily but i could have done with the Gel. Its about 9 months old and Ive just used quarter of the bottle! I feel its a waste of money.

    do we have make up exchanges in mumbai ? wouldnt that be great to exchange good quality, hardly used stuff, share shipping expenses etc etc...

    Let me know :) thanks Chris

  2. @ Anonymous : Thanks :) Yes DDMG is way better than the DDML..i dont kno of any makeup exchanges happening in Mumbai..
