Clinique were one of the first cosmetic companies to bring out a lipstick in the crayon form - they now have two lines of their cult favourite Chubby Stick: the original formula and the intense formula. Although they have a wide colour variety, we have been loving the pink shades which range from soft pink to a dark berry.

This a gorgeous light pink that creates a perfect healthy natural shine on the lips and can easily be paired with glowy makeup. It is one of those products which is great to just throw in your handbag for a quick wash of colour or a simple touchup throughout the day. We love to use this during the spring and summertime as it creates a simple, fresh and pretty overall makeup look.

The original formula of this product gives a glossy tint to the lips that requires no maintenance throughout the day. Pudgy Peony is slightly darker than Plushest Punch, but rather than being intensely pigmented, it only gives a wash of colour almost like a tinted lip balm. This shade is amazing during the autumn/winter months as it has a slightly more berry tone, but obviously you can use it whenever and it works well with almost any makeup look.

If you are a fan of the bold pink lip then this is an elegant option - it isn't overly barbie pink but has more berry tones creating a classy look. It is one of the intense crayons and so has amazing pigmentation in one application. You can apply lightly during the day time by blending it onto the lips with your finger and then to make it more evening appropriate, use it straight from the bullet.

This is the darkest and boldest shade of the bunch - it is the most red/purple undertoned. Also as part of the intense collection, this berry shade has beautiful colour pay off and is ideal for the autumn when you have paler skin and can get away with slightly heavier makeup during the day. If you aren't one to wear a bold lip everyday, then maybe give this a try during the evening paired with a subtle shimmery eye and fluttery eyelashes.

Both of the formulas are smooth to apply while being extremely hydrating but they still have staying power. The full sized Chubby Sticks cost £17, however we got these as part of a gift set around Christmas time.
