Theres some really great lip products out at the moment and I've wanted to try the Clinique Chubby Sticks for sometime now, but when other brands such as Rimmel, Collection 2000 and Revlon brought out similar products the northern bargain bagger in me choose to not spend the £16 on the Clinique original instead opt for the Rimmel 1,000 kisses Lip Stain and Balm for only £5.99. Boots was having a 3 for 2 offer on at the time so I thought I'd made a pretty good saving.
I choose the colour Endless Blossom as its a pretty natural pink colour and great for everyday its also similar to the Clinique Bountiful Blush shade. Unlike the Clinique Chubby Stick which has the colour and balm in one, the Rimmel Version is split into two parts. The Lip stain tip, which went on easily and evenly and then the balm stick which when I used it for the first time it actually snapped clean off! Meaning I can no longer use the balm only the stain which dries out my lips, so pretty much a waste of money.
I was so disappointed with this product and I really wish I'd just bought the Clinique version as in this case you clearly get what you pay for, which is a shame as Rimmel products are normally pretty good.
Have you bought this product or any other beauty products you were disappointed in?
