Clinique Chubby Stick Intense in Grandest Grape, £17 here

It’s rare something gains perfection status for two years in a row as there’s always so many new additions to the clan, but Clinique Chubby Stick in Grandest Grape has reigned supreme for over a year now and it’s time to sing it’s praises once again.

If you haven’t hopped on the Chubby Stick bandwagon, where have you been? It’s time to get involved and lets start with the perfect shade of berry. Something that’s not too light that it appears purple and not too dark or vampy. The formula is what gets it, a light balmy texture that feels comfortable on the lips as it hydrates. What’s best about the formula is how it doesn’t highlight dry lips or make them stand out (cough cough Mac Lipsticks). Being a swipe ‘n’ go crayon it’s easy to apply and even though the longevity isn’t all there that’s something that comes with most coloured lipsticks but as it’s so easy to slap on, topping up is simple. If you fancy seeing it in action it’s what I was wearing all throughout this video.

The exciting news is there’s one up for grabs for you too! Leave a comment down below saying what your favourite lipstick is with contact details and a winner will be chosen this time next week!

  • Isabelle McWilliam

    Perfect autumn winter shade!
    My favourite lipstick at the minute is MAC Lady Danger :)

    It can’t be another beauty blog

  • Ana Rita Mendes

    My favourite winter lipstick is KIKO Smart Lipstick in Amaranth :)


  • Charlotte MacDonald-Gaunt

    Beautiful shade. The one I’ve been wearing the most is actually Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker in Raplumzel, love it! Xx

  • Therese A

    My favourite lipstick is Jemma Kidd Cleopatra duo :)

  • Cassie

    I have been wearing a ton of theBalm’s Staniac in Beauty Queen. More of a stain than a traditional lipstick, but it works great!

  • Lucy Dering

    My current favourite has to be the Clinique Chubby Stick Intense in Roomiest Rose, such a beautiful colour!


  • Dusica Veselinovic

    Chanel Rouge Coco in Rouge Noir – formula, shade, staying power, finish… everything :)

  • Ellen Findley

    I’m a sucker for MAC Plumful and Bourjois Colour Boost lip crayons; I love Red Sunrise and Peach on the Beach, and I just picked up Red Island and Plum Russian.

  • sarah beth

    I’m loving Revlon’s JBKBS in Crush just really lightly patted onto the lips- it’s long lasting and just such a nice colour (but unfortunately Revlon lip products taste quite lead-y to me so I’m keeping them to a relative minimum) xxx

  • Leanne Bates

    Ive got 2 favourites, MAC’s Violetta and Maybelline’s Shocking Coral. Now its Autumn Violetta can now be used without the “Purple? in the summer.. really?” looks of disgust by die hards lol

    topazstarz@hotmail dot com . hahaha Spamming demons, try and get me now lol. Sorry I’m sleep deprived. xxx Leanne

  • Ella

    I love my YSL Sheer Candy in dewy papaya, so easily wearable and perfect for everyday!

  • Liyana Ismail

    My favourite is MAC Amplified in Brick-O-La. Love the shade, texture, and staying power too. :)

  • EB

    Benefit – No Competition – a deep plum..All time favourite, discovered in celebutant set and loved it ever since!

  • Alexa

    Ah amazing, mine would be a Clinique cubby stick too, the rose one! I would love to try this one out too though, more of a winter vibe! (

  • Megan Clarke

    my fave has to be berry lips for the autumn, with a tartan jumoer thrown in! i love the Nars satin lip pencil in Luxembourg combined with Revlon Black Cherry :)

  • Alice Porter

    At the moment my favourite lipstick is Laura Mercier’s Merlot, I’m loving deep lips this autumn!


  • Darija

    My favourite lipstick at the moment is… Rimmel by Kate 107 Rossetto… perfect for autumn 😉

  • Astrid R. Mikkelsen

    Im loving revlons lip butter in berry smootie:-)

  • sleepandwater

    I can see this being an ideal autumnal lip colour :) I have one Chubby Stick but it’s in Woppin’ Watermelon – I agree that the formula of these just make application so easy and fuss-free. My favourite lipstick … tough question! At the moment I am inclined to say MAC Patisserie, though it’s more an everyday neutral kind of shade rather than a colourful/bright pick. What a really nice giveaway :)

  • Allana Davison

    I have been absolutely loving the Revlon Kissable Balm Stain in “Honey”, but I have been dying to try the Chubby Sticks because everybody and their mother has been raving about them!!! Thank you for doing another giveaway — your Oskia code was to die for too!!!! XO

  • Sarah

    My favourite lipstick of the moment – The Body Shop’s colour crush lipstick in Crazy, Sexy Crimson – it gives me a really wine-stained look when I pat it on.

  • Mafalda Mello

    Kiko lipsticks rule! They are just as pigmented as MAC but not so drying. Try their Smart lipstick range for a no fuss swipe of long-lasting colour! I love 908, true red. A perfect red.

  • Corin Allison

    That colour looks gorgeous! I also feel like none of the lipsticks I have are all that hydrating so I could definitely do with getting my hands on a chubby stick. My favourite lipstick for ages has been Pom Pom by Soap and Glory. It’s a really pretty colour and tastes a bit like vanilla!

  • Amy

    My favourite lipstick at the moment is the Rimmel Moisture Renew in Glam Plum Fulham :)

  • Astrid Bevers

    My favourite lipstick is the Rimmel Apocalips in Celestial :)

  • Danessa

    my fav lipstick at the moment is the hourglass nude stylo lip crayon in # 4

  • Samantha Booth

    I love the nars velvet matte lip pencils – bettina is a perfect nude and sex machine is a lovely rose colour. I also love macs rebel :)

  • Maddy Cane

    Love the look of this colour, there is a pretty good dupe for it in the Bourjois lineup too which I love!

    Maddy from UNSTITCHEDD

  • Susan Nguyen

    I love the Revlon lip butters because they are so hydrating!

  • Rachel

    Out of all the lip pencils going on right now, the Chubby Stick is the one that I haven’t tried yet – slightly ironic considering that it was this which started the lip crayon craze! My favourite lipstick has got to be MAC Patisserie. It’s such a flattering and simple colour, and looks good no matter what look I’m wearing that day X

  • BBFF

    At the moment my favourite is Kate Moss for Rimmel 03, a perfect nude lip on me, goes brilliantly with smokey eyes. Feels great, smells great, lasts well. What more could one ask for? I haven’t tried any of these crayon type lipsticks yet… so late to the party as ever! x

  • Kristin

    Right now my favorite lipstick is from the Kate Moss for Rimmel collection in shade 09! Revlon’s balm stain in Honey is also a favorite!

  • elspeth

    I’m torn between Clinique Chubby Stink in Roomiest Rose and MAC Plumful and Illamasqua Shard. I just can’t choose!

  • Ida D

    Oh my, I’ve bee itching to try this, but haven’t been able to justify to myself to buy it yet. Fingers crossed now. My current favourite is either Mac Rebel or a morrocan ‘magic’ lipstick that stains your lips in “perfect” pink, as it adjusts to your personal ph-levels.

  • Wendy-jayne Wilson

    I love the Revlon Lip Butters and Clinique Chubby Sticks, I’m rocking grandest grape as we speak 😉 . My all time favourite is Chanel’s Rouge Allure 104 Passion

    My favourite lipstick is definitely MAC brick-o-la, such a lovely shade of dark red for paler girls, and maybe those who a bit scared of colour! :p

  • Carolin G

    My favourite lipstick is Kiko’s Smart Lipstick in Cherry Red. :) It’s really good if you don’t want to spend much money on a lipstick.

  • Chloe Witty

    i love mac shy girl, such a perfect colour

    My favourite lippy is a budget buy, recently discovered Accessorize Passionate. It’s a rich dark black currant stain, looks scary in the bullet, but applied it gives a beautiful berry purple stain if applied with finger, straight from the bullet it gives a vampy autumnal look. Love it for its versatility xxx

    I’m not very adventurous when it comes to lip products, in fact I only own 3. MAC’s blankety is my favourite nude, a Clarin’s instant light natural lip perfector, and for the perfect A/W shade, Rimmel Kate Moss in 107. This Clinique chubby stick looks similar in colour to the Rimmel Kate Moss lipstick, but a hell of a lot more moisturising, and with the cold weather causing dry lips, who doesn’t want an extra boost of moisture?!

    I like Dior’s Color Reviver Balm.
