Review | Clinique Chubby In The Nude Foundation Stick
This is what it says on the Clinique website:
Portable perfection for full-face coverage, or bare-minimum touch-ups. Creamy, moisturizing foundation stick blends easily. Builds from sheer to moderate coverage with a natural finish. Long-wearing. Oil-free.
- Draw several strokes of foundation across the forehead, cheeks, chin and down the bridge of nose.
- For sheerer coverage, fingertip-blend to a seamless finish.
- For moderate coverage, use Clinique’s Buff Brush to buff foundation into skin using light, circular motions.
So, stick foundations have been talked about alot lately, and I’ve been very curious to try them, so I got this one from Clinique and I’m actually quite impressed with it so far.
Now, I know that people say most stick foundations usually are better for normal and dry skin, and not so much for oily skin, so I didn’t really know what to expect (not that my skin is very oily anymore, but I do get quite shiny in my t-zone), but it did hold up for way longer than I was expecting.
It did get shiny after about 4-5 hours, and it did fade around my nose/cheeks at the end of the day, but it did hold up for around 6-8 hours without touchups, so I wouldn’t say it’s bad at all.
It might depend on how oily your skin gets, but for me it worked quite well.
Now, when it comes to the coverage of this I would say that it’s a light/medium to full coverage, depending on how much you build it up, but you can easily build it up and it doesn’t look cakey or heavy, so I really like that it’s so easy to control.
I also find that it’s very easy to blend out with a brush, I haven’t tried it with a sponge because it is so thick, but I do think that a dense brush is the best way to go, at least for me.
So, overall I do enjoy using this foundation. It is a bit dark for me right now, and I don’t think that the shade description is accurate online, which is something to keep in mind. But it is a very beautiful foundation with a natural finish, so I would recommend checking it out if you’re interested in trying this.
I got mine from Kicks for 265nok and it’s available in 10 shades.
