Clinique Gift Box Whole Lotta Color - Curvy Candy, Chunky Cherry, Richer Raisin, Oversized Orange, Super Strawberry (Review and Swatches)

Jan 22, 2013

I already did a preview of the Set. You can check that post for product details, ingredients, price and other information. Link for Whole Lotta Color Preview.

All the colors are sheer but I tried to put here the most intense color possible for all colors. These were possibly the toughest ones to swatch on lips so far. After clicking their pics 3 times and rejecting them every time, I did them again on Sunday and I am quite happy with the results got better results than the previous ones and I do not have patience to do 5 of them again for the 5th time!

As I have declared earlier, I used them almost every day for around 15 days in a row. I had to reapply it a lot. While it looks awkward to reapply lipstick in front of other, this one looked like I am rubbing a huge crayon on my lips. And who never liked crayon? So, like a crazy kid I rubbed then on my lips. While they are moisturizing and balmy in texture, I wish they were little more pigmented. Anyone who have pigmented lips - which is like the most common issue faced by everyone in India - will face issues. All the colors might look similar.

Clinique Chubby Stick Oversized Orange

A peachy orange sheer color with gold shimmer. It’s the sheerest of all and hardly seem orange in fact. This is the only one which contains shimmer in it but they are hardly noticeable. 

Clinique Chubby Stick Curvy Candy

Cool toned bubblegum pink. This one is quite opaque compared to other colors. 

Clinique Chubby Stick Super Strawberry

Berry tones warm pink. This is the most worn color and most loved one. Its suits me a lot as a everyday n*de glossy pink.

Clinique Chubby Stick Chunky Cherry

Red toned pink. Most opaque of all. Like it for the vibrancy in it.

Clinique Chubby Stick  Richer Raisin

Brown. I have actually never worn it for a day. Only while swatching etc. This one will surely be the last one to finish or dare I saw will not finish ever.

Sweet Part of Whole Lotta Color Chubby Sticks

1. Moisturizing and balmy in texture.
2. 5 colors to play.
3. Better value for money compared to 2 colors which will come for the same amount.
4. Will be loved by anyone who likes sheer colors.
5. Staying power better than most other tinted balm. Last more than an hour very easily.
6. Easy twist-up. No product lost due to sharpening.
7. Other than Oversized Orange none have glitter particles..
8. Easy to remove.

Bitter Part of Whole Lotta Color Chubby Sticks

1. All colors make look alike on pigmented lips.
2. Had a smell when they were new (but now its gone).
3. Limited Edition.
4. Leaves behind no tint.

Overall - I love the concept of chubby sticks. Lip color in crayon like twist up form is attractive. I also loved the concept of packing 5 travel size color consisting of all variety into a rightly priced gift box. I do wish they were more pigmented but I was aware of this issue when I got them so I am not complaining here.

Rating - 4.5/5  ( negative 0.5 for being sheer)

PS: I have also got one Revlon Just Bitten which look exactly like chubby sticks. I will do a compare post soon. When I say soon try to understand I have too many posts in pipeline. I am even thinking of not buying anything unless I review everything I have!!.....very bold statement girl...very bold statement


  1. I'm waiting for the Chubby Stick Intense to be launched here. Those have much better pigmentation.

    1. I think I will wait for Revlon just bitten. They are much cheaper and intense in color.

  2. wow, these look great on you! Great swathes :D

  3. Ya true, they don't seem to be highly pigmented.. just another version of tinted lip balms

  4. You lips!!!! Sorry, couldn't help :P The shades look wonderful on your lips!!!

  5. Texture and finish looks nice. Like Chunky Cherry
