The Clinique Chubby Contour Stick




Contouring definitely isn't my strong point. I've tried to master it and just failed, resulting with the finish being obvious and fake looking.
Having oily skin I always opted for a powder product, but I always knew a cream contour would blend a lot better, hopefully making it easier to look less like I was trying waaaaaay too hard. I was torn between a couple of options but decided to try the Clinique Chubby Contour Stick. I was slightly sceptical as to whether the one shade "Curvy Contour," would work for how flippin pale I am, so I tried it on in store. Finally, I feel like I've found a product that works for me, goodbye chipmunk cheeks, hello cheekbones!

After blending

I apply this just under my cheek bones (yes I do have some), along my jawline and by the temples. What makes this different to other contour products I've tried is how easy it is to blend. It leaves a seamless finish that creates a subtle shadow, making a good difference that isn't obvious. The shade doesn't resemble the typical cool toned/ grey contouring shades, it is a more natural and neutral brown that looks more like a bronzer, but blended it is just perfect. I use my fingers first, but often i'll go in with a buffing brush, to make it even less obvious. Staying power depends on the base I am using, applied over a tinted moisturiser it doesn't last aslong, on top of one of my more long lasted bases and it lasts the majority of the day!

I'm so happy that I picked this up, I'm seriously late to the party with contouring but happy that I finally have something that works for me. What are you favourite contouring products?

  2. Wow I didn't expect it to blend out so well! I've only ever tried contour with powder, I think it's time I step it up a bit, I have a serious case of hamster cheeks!

  5. I would like to see what this look like on my skin, I'm so fair! I've always stayed away from bronzers or anything like that, but I think this would be easier to blend since it's creamy! xo

    1. I didn't even spend long blending it in on the back of my hand, so I think it could become even more sheer. I tried mine out in store first and loved it xx

    1. Yeah exactly, it really is perfect! Its nothing like the really cool toned shades, I think they make contouring so much harder. I'm so happy I bought it x

  11. I've been contemplating getting this product for a while. Contouring definitely isn't my strong point either, and I usually stick to powder contouring too but I often find it does look too harsh. This product looks as though it blends beautifully! I may just have to bite the bullet and try it out. Great review!
