Clinique Chubby Contour Stick Review
Since the Kardashian contour conquering era began, I've seen many a contour product emerge on the beauty shelves. My favourites include the Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit and the Kett Cream Foundation Palette; but recently, I decided to try out Clinique's brand new contouring product, the 'Chubby Stick Sculpting Contour'.
This product is part of Clinique's new contouring collection, which includes a highlighter stick, contour stick and powder palette. It looks pretty, is easy to use and you get quite a bit of product for your money.
However, I found that, as I began to apply the contour, the formula was incredibly dark - a huge contrast to my light-to-medium skin tone. Blending the product in, I found that it was slightly patchy, and not as smooth as I'd have liked it to appear; it seemed rather sticky and clung to patches of my skin. Once I had blended it in and removed the patchiness, I found that the contouring wasn't even visible, and therefore had to reapply. Once I had applied a second layer of contouring, I found that I was happier with the colour, but it still appeared a bit too patchy for my liking.
As this was a first impression, I may film a second review in the near future, perhaps detailing a few methods in which you can use this product in a more effective way. However, for the moment, I'm inclined to give it a 5/10. At £19.00, I was expecting a bit more wow-factor, and unfortunately I didn't receive this.
Take a look at the video below for a demo of this product!
