Clinique Chubby Stick Shadow Tint for Eyes: Portly Plum and Big Blue

Clinique Chubby Eyes Portly Plum and Big Bl

The long-anticipated arrival of Clinique’s Chubby Stick Shadow Tints for Eyes finally arrived recently, and I have two to show you: Portly Plum* and Big Blue*.  For me, these two shades couldn’t be more extreme in regards to my sort of colours as the Portly Plum I absolutely love and have worn at least every few days since I received it, whereas Big Blue is a shade that I’m not sure I can pull off, sadly!

Both shades are extremely well-pigmented and are formulated to contain just the right amount of slip, so they’re not too greasy, but also move over the eye area with ease.  Unfortunately, they do need a bit of primer help to stay in place for longer than a few hours, but I’ve found that if I prep my eye area with foundation and powder then this prolongs their wear considerably.

Portly Plum is a deep, rich plum shade with the tiniest bit of shimmer.  It is most perfect shade for blue-eyed girls as it pulls all the blue forward, allowing for that elusive colour-pop we’re all trying to achieve.  If you have blue eyes and buy just one colour-enhancer for your eyes, make it this one.  Big Blue still packs solid pigment, but it’s a little too pale for me as it’s very cool-toned and would wash out those with cooler, pale skintones.  It is a lovely shade to highlight with, but I haven’t used it enough to put forward a full review of how it works as an all over eye shade.

Clinique have put together some truly beautiful and extremely wearable shades in their Chubby Eyes collection, ranging from some strong pops of colour to versatile nudes and neutrals.  There are 12 shades in the line so far, meaning there’ll inevitably be something for everyone.  Available now priced at £16 from Clinique.
