Clinique Chubby Stick in Mighty Mimosa

I love peachy colors. They match my tan or fair-skin. I got bored with my Romantic Lip balm stain from Revlon. The color cherry-red was too much for my daily use.

Cost: ₱920 (Rustans) = $16 (Sephora)

*The ₱ price is inclusive of tax, I think.

DETAILS from Nordstrom:
Eight natural-looking lip tints in all, each with a subtle sheen. Tempt lips with a soft cushion of color that's not quite sheer, not quite opaque - just the perfectly happy medium. Loaded with mango and shea butters so lips feel comfortably soft and smooth. In a variety of shades

I couldn't find any list of ingredients on the internet and the photo of the packaging with the list is not that visible.

I have been eyeing this stuff ever since I heard about lip balms that color the lips. I have read reviews about this and the Revlon's. I couldn't make up my mind because both seemed to equally have positive comments from customers, but most of them say they prefer Revlon because it's way cheaper than Clinique's.

I purchased Revlon in Romantic and regretted a bit because after doing another research about the two, people swore Clinique's chubby stick is the best. I couldn't sleep. I needed to buy the that. It took me a month before I could get hold of the chubby stick. 

This is the Clinique Chubby stick lip color balm in Mighty Mimosa. I asked the SA for a peachy-pink color and this is what she suggested.

The actual product is the photo below. No edits. I used my iPhone 4s to take photos since I can't afford to buy those high-definition-taking-cameras. The money I am earning cannot suffice all my WANTS so basically, I'll have to use whatever I've got. I saved a lot for this baby too.

It took me a while to decide what colour should I get. What's so good about Clinique is that they have tons of shades to choose from that you want to try all of it. I have fair skin so peachy-pink to orange suits me well.

This is the actual photo of my lips wearing the Mighty Mimosa. In the photo, the colour looks more on the pink side. I'd definitely say this stuff works on any skin colour. I am glad that the SA in Clinique Rustans Cebu suggested me this. 

I felt how the balm is quite moisturising. It doesn't give a sticky feeling. I looked at the mirror across me. I couldn't tell if this shade is peach or pink because the lighting in the little Clinique station was quite yellowish. I was hesitant at first. Sensing my reluctance, she told me give it a try and go around for a while to see if the colour really works for me. 

After a few moments of strolling around, I checked my lips. It was a beautiful peachy-pink but more on the pinkish side, the one that I really wanted! I love the shade. 

It awakened my pale lips. It had little shimmers on it but not too visible. Really perfect for everyday use.

Without a doubt, I went back to Rustans and purchased it.  

The downside of this lip balm is that I have to reapply more than three times a day. Unlike the Revlon (which I will then right a review on soon) stays long the whole day.

I wouldn't say this is the best lip balm stain I have ever used. I do like the color but the staying power is too short. When you eat and drink, it erases nearly everything. Oh, if you have chapped or cracked lips, this isn't the best balm to help your lip problem. This is good when your lips are already hydrated and you want to keep them on the hydrated level.

                       This photo is taken using my Mac Air. I don't know if the colour is really that visible.
