NEW Clinique Chubby Shadow Sticks

It's here ladies (and gents!) The latest edition to the Chubby Stick craze is the new Clinique Chubby Stick cream eye shadows. I picked up one in the shade "Ample Amber" which is a soft copper/amber cream shadow. Wanna hear my thoughts AND see a demo on it? Keep reading!

The Chubby Stick shadows retail for the same price as the original Chubby Sticks for lips, $16. The first thing I noticed when I opened this little guy was that the tip is not pointed like the Chubby Sticks for lips are. It is very similar to the Revlon shadow sticks (except you get two colors for half the price ). 

 I'll be honest, the first application was not very pigmented and the shadow almost seemed to tug my eye. I was expecting it to be rich and creamy. After a couple of applications the stick started to warm up and the pigmentation got better. This shade is definitely going to be for light every day wear or used as a shadow base.

The color itself is gorgeous. Definitely perfect for fair to light skin. Considering my complexion is very light and it took a few applications for the actual color to be noticeable, I would say "Ample Amber" wouldn't be the best choice for someone with medium to tan skin.


Final thoughts?
I would definitely have to find a color that was absolutely stunning and not comparable to anything in the drugstore to purchase another Chubby Shadow Stick. The wow factor just wasn't there for me on this product. Don't get me wrong, this is going to be something that I will use, but it's also something I could have found for A LOT cheaper in Walgreens. 

Hope you guys enjoyed this quick little review and eye tutorial. 
Thanks for reading!

Love, Shelbey.
