i love the clinique chubby sticks for lips so it’s no surprise that their eyeshadow story is equally deserving of my affection. in this revamped version, creamy eye color is tucked inside twist-up chunky pencils for easy one-handed application and ultra long wear. the gorgeous palette includes tame neutrals and bold shades that can be layered together for look after look. i’ve found that these are incredibly easy to blend into your crease or onto your lid and can even be grazed along the lash line as a smudgy liner. if you’re eye makeup challenged like me, you’ll really like how easy these are to work with. the pen itself is huge giving a nice wash of color, plus it’s completely portable thanks to a click-on top (no need to worry about painting the inside of your handbag in ‘portly plum’). if you’ve been searching for a spring addition to your eye wardrobe, look no further. i think that the combination of formula and packaging is so good here, you’re going to want to scoop up more than one!
