Company’s Description

Give lips mouth-watering moisture and a hint of soft shine. Five shades of award-winning Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm are just what dry, delicate lips need to feel comfortably soft and smooth. This set features a beautiful range of bestselling shades to take her through the holiday season and beyond.

Clinique’s Whole Lotta Colour Set includes five (5) mini versions of the company’s famous Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Colour Balms:

  • Super Strawberry: sheer berry pink
  • Richer Raisin: sheer plum brown
  • Curvy Candy: sheer bubblegum pink
  • Oversized Orange: sheer peach
  • Chunky Cherry: sheer cherry red


Packaging: 10/10

This set comes in a pink and silver box made of heavy, glossed cardboard. The box includes a slide-out drawer that you pull out with a pink tab and that holds the lip balms. This is a perfect gift that you don’t have to wrap or decorate.

Quality: 9.5/10

Super Strawberry is a light, peachy-pink shade. Richer Raisin is a brown-toned nude. Curvy Candy is a light, cool-toned pink. Oversized Orange is a soft, orange-peach. Chunky Cherry is a nude-pink.

All of these lip balms give off sheer, entirely wearable color. The soft, transparent pigmentation means these lip balms can be worn on any skin color or skin tone. The pigmentation on the Chubby Sticks is much softer than with Revlon’s Kissable Balm Stains or Tarte’s LipSurgence Lip Tints.

Some of the shades technically have tiny silver shimmer particles, but they don’t leave a shimmery effect on the lips.

These balms are completely smooth on the lips and keep them moisturized. They don’t have any menthol taste or smell. Because of the already soft pigmentation, these don’t leave a strong stain behind on the lips. The formula lasts two (2) to three (3) hours.

Ease of Use: 10/10

These are simple to use because of the pencil form and the sheer pigmentation of the colors.

Price: 8.75/10

Individual Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Colour Balms cost $16.00 and contain 0.1 ounces. With the Whole Lotta Colour Set, you get a total of 0.2 ounces and pay $34.50, so you unfortunately end up paying more per ounce with this set than by buying the colors individually. On the other hand, you get a variety to choose from with this set.

    I just purchased the tarte statement lips. Do you like the clinique chubby sticks better?

    • Allura says:

      No–I like them the same and for different reasons. The Tarte LipSurgence tints have more body to them and are much more pigmented. The Clinique Chubby Sticks are more sheer (easier to wear with anything) and adhere more closely to the lips.
