Clinique Holiday Gift Set 2012 Whole Lotta Color - 5 Chubby Sticks Pack Review

Dec 26, 2012

Clinique won my heart this time with awesome gift packs that it launched. This is just a first impressions review of the Whole Lotta Color Holiday Gift Box


I hurried myself into posting this because it might not be available for long and I do not want you to miss it! It has 5 chubby sticks and the color selection is very nice – a cherry red, a rose, a brown, an orange and a pink – could you need anything else? 

All gift sets are either bright orange or bright pink with a pink pull out and silver box.

What makes this a true value for money – it retails for 2050 INR which is almost like 400 INR each chubby stick…..let’s say the box is for 50. At 400 INR you are getting 1.2 gms while the full size is 3 gm and retails at around 1300. 
Also, you get to try 5 colors which are very usable for everyday. I do not know when I will use Richer Raisin but then I can deal with it.

Top Row - Under Direct Sunlight,
Bottom Row-  lighted but not directly under sun.


First Impression of Chubby Sticks - This is the first time I am trying Chubby Stick so I found that they have a funny smell in the beginning but that become unnoticeable after few seconds. They have a balmy texture and semi opaque finish with build-able color. Best part they are twist-up! No loss of products due to sharpening. I am loving them winter – very moisturizing!

Price – 2050 INR for 5 Chubby Stick of 1.2 gm each
Limited Edition – Holiday Set 2012

  10. I Like packaging and nice deal for this price. I want different shades, can we ask for customization?

    ReplyDelete

    1. I am not sure about customization. They are the smaller size of the regular size and I do not think they will have it in other colors as well to fit in the box. You can check once to be sure
