I always talk about how much I love anything in crayon packaging but the Make Up For Ever UltraHD Invisible Cover Stick Foundation was actually my first experience with a stick foundation. However, Clinique, the creator of the Clinique Chubby Stick Shadow Tint For Eyes, Clinique Chubby Stick Cheek Colour Balm, and of course the original Clinique Chubby Sticks has now introduced one more product to the chubby family, the Clinique Chubby in the Nude Foundation Stick*.
I have the Clinique Chubby in the Nude Foundation Stick in Intense Ivory (06), which is the second lightest of 10 shades. It comes in a twist stick that is perfect for tossing into your bag, but honestly works just as well to apply at home. My only complaint in what is going to be an otherwise rave review is that I wish it came with more product. It holds 6 grams, the same amount as the Clinique Chubby Stick Cheek Colour Balm. That said, at $29 Canadian it’s the same price as some drugstore foundations these days…
The Clinique Chubby in the Nude Foundation Stick in Intense Ivory is a fair beige shade that just a hint too dark for my skin. It will be the perfect match when I get a tiny bit of sun. It has a firm but creamy consistency, and I apply it by drawing a few lines on my face and then blending it into the skin. You can use a brush or your fingers, but I’m lazy and I always use my fingers. It is honestly the fastest foundation to apply that I have ever used, and it’s so convenient for travel or touch up–no spills, no brushes.
In terms of coverage, I absolutely adore the light to medium buildable coverage that the Clinique Chubby in the Nude Foundation Stick in Intense Ivory offers. You can still see my freckles but all my redness is gone, and it’s easy to apply more to any trouble areas so I don’t even need to use a separate concealer. Even though the foundation is oil-free, it’s the only thing that’s looking nice on my dry winter patches these days since it’s so creamy and moisturizing. It’s not at all cakey or drying and I find it much easier to apply than the MUFE.
The Clinique Chubby in the Nude Foundation Stick has a gorgeous, natural, streak-free finish with a slight sheen to it. It does wear away in oilier areas but lasts all day on most of my face, so I would set with powder for oily skin.
So…have I told you all the ways I love the Clinique Chubby in the Nude Foundation Stick in Intense Ivory? If you are looking for a foundation with an easy application and gorgeous finish, you may just fall in love with this convenient, natural-looking foundation like I have! HIGHLY recommended!
Have you tried a stick foundation before?
