So far I'm digging all the Clinique Chubbiness, so I was pretty curious about the latest Chubby product, the Chubby in the Nude foundation stick. Also my first foundation stick - and I do have to admit that I was a bit scared that the application would be a bit well eh, cakey to say at least.
So, review time!
Chubby In The Nude Review and Swatches
The Chubby In The Nude foundation stick comes in the typical Clinique Chubby packaging. The stick is compact and very handy for traveling, or just to put in your handbag for touch ups on the go.
The formula is surprisingly blendable and creamy. It feels nice on the skin, and it blends out to a medium to even light coverage (so no cakiness!), but you can also step up your game and go for medium to full coverage. Chubby In The Nude has a finish that is not dewy, nor matte, more of a satin finish.
The sticks are suitable for all skin types and come in 6 colors (4 extra colors at Inno!), I have color 09 'Normous Neutral and 07 Capacious Chamois. 07 is the closest fit to my skin tone. You can apply the foundation by just drawing 2-3 horizontal stripes on your forehead, one on the bridge of your nose, 2-3 on the cheeks and one on the chin. Blend downwards and to the sides for that 'second skin effect'.

Overall I'm pretty impressed with this little chubby one, blending goes so much easier than I thought, and you can choose which coverage you'd like. These sticks are also GREAT for contouring and highlighting, pick up a darker and a lighter shade, and you have (perfectly blendable) cream contour products.
Have you ever tried a foundation stick?
