Clinique Chubby Stick Cheek Color Balm: Review and Swatches
Packaging:
The Clinique Chubby Stick Cheek Color Balms are basically giant Chubby Sticks. They come in a retractable plastic crayon packaging with silver lids and twisty bases. The tip of the blush is dome shaped for easy application.

Formulation:
Although the name of the product (Chubby Stick Cheek Balm) suggests that the product is probably very sheer and has a more balmy texture, these guys are actually very pigmented cream blushes. The formulation is smooth and easily blendable and it has a non-drying cream to powder finish. The wear is just ok but my oily skin tend to have a hard time with cream blushes.
Plumped Up Peony: Gorgeous dusty mauve-y plum.
Poly Poly Rosy: Subdued dark pink.
Robust Rhubarb: Light pinky coral.
Amp'd Up Apple: Beige-y peach.
