Hello lovers. It was only a matter of time before Chubby Stick powerhouse Clinique added two specific additions to their range. From lips, bold lips, shadows and cheek tints they have the chubby stick game down to a T but they were always missing two key players to help you get that Kim K sculpted look. Oh yes the time has come – let me introduce to you the Sculpting Chubby Sticks.

Available in Curvy Contour* and Hefty Highlight* they form the sculpting duo to help us all achieve those lusted after supermodel cheek bones. Foolproof to apply simply swipe each stick onto your face and blend out with a brush or your fingers to give a soft and natural finish. Personally the contour shade is a little on the bronzey/warm spectrum for my skin tone. Although you can blend it out personally I would prefer something a little lighter and more grey in finish to mimic the shadows in the hollows of your cheeks.

Hefty Highlight however is where luminous highlighted dreams are made of. Icey in tone compared to most golden shimmers this looks so flattering and complimentary on your skin when applied to the high points to lift your complexion. This has quickly become a firm favourite to the point I’ve already made a sizeable dip in the product. Considering ease of application and softness of finish it will suit a multitude of skin tones and makes highlighting a doodle.

Also. My hair. The colour. I can’t. Good job I’ve got a rather swish appointment coming up on Saturday for a very overdue appointment to sort out that colour ;)

  • Oh it looks very natural, awesome!

  • I find they are great for a natural contour, but I sometimes also build up the bronze with some additional powder!

  • These look incredible and the format is perfect!

  • These look amazing and so easy to use. I need to look into these as the would be perfect since I’ve been learning contouring in makeup class.

    They look like a great idea but not sure if I like the sound of the consistency. Think I’ll stick to powder for now xo

    • I didn’t think I would as I’m a powder girl but these work seamlessly over or under makeup xx

  • Looks very natural on you :) I love the concept of cream contour in stick form, so easy to use.


  • I have been waiting for this post. I think the contouring stick would be too dark for me too but I am all about that highlighter! I am definitely going to get it!

    Speaking of hair, my color is long overdue too but I am going to see my hairstylist tomorrow. Going to get a new haircut too, I think. Unless I chicken out and just go for a trim, we shall see! :-)

    • The highlighter is gorgeous! Defo my fav at the moment. Eek go for the cut! You won’t regret it :) xx

  • The Curvy Contour seems to be too warm for my taste, also prefer grey-ish tones. The Hefty Highlighter sounds like a dream! Love the fact it’s more of an icey tone, may give it a try someday! :) xx
