Review: Clinque Chubby Stick Cheek Colour Balm

I can't believe it's October and I'm still managing to keep up with my posts for the 2014 Blogger Challenge! Only 5 posts left now until the year is up! The theme for this post was a review. No specific review, just any old review. 

I recently picked up one of the new(ish) Clinique chubby sticks for cheeks at work one day as I really like cream blushers at the moment. Plus I had a little play around with the shades and they were so nice it was rude not to treat myself to one with my Boots points! I decided on the shade Robust Rhubarb which is a beautiful coral pink that goes well with most looks.  

The balms are incredibly moisturising, but their oil free formula keeps the shine at bay to give a healthy looking flush. I like that these are really blendable so you can add a subtle hint of colour, but equally can be layered up to give a nice vibrant pop of colour - see below for blended and unblended swatches.

I'm wearing this so much at the moment that I think I may have to go back and invest in another shade. For £19 I think they are a great price as you only need a tiny amount each time you use it. Considering I've worn mine quite a lot, it's barely gone down so it's going to last me ages.

Have you tried the chubby stick for cheeks? What do you think of it?
