I'm kind of lazy at the moment and keep putting off washing my eye makeup brushes, mainly because I forget they need it until the moment I'm about to use them and after my stupid eye infection back in September, I'm nervous about ever getting another one from... anything really, so the new Clinique Chubby Stick Shadow Tints for Eyes came along at a perfect time. I already love the lip versions, but having these around to use without having to worry about cleaning my brushes means I've really gotten a chance to play around with them. There are twelve different shades ranging from Bountiful Beige, which is light enough to be used as a highlighter, to Massive Midnight, a dark blue. They're so easy to use and the shadows blend easily and really stay put. I also love that you don't need to sharpen them - if you want more shadow, it's just a simple twist. (Also great because in addition to forgetting to wash my brushes, I can never find any of the ten sharpeners I know I have somewhere). They're also a good, budget-friendly option at only $16 apiece (something I'm appreciating more and more lately). Plus, they're perfect for throwing in your bag to use after work when you're heading out and want a more dramatic look for evening (I usually try to avoid stopping at home when I go out after work because I'm always kind of afraid if I see my pajamas and couch, I might just stay there). I'm really loving these. I daresay I might have to own them all!
Note: Samples were sent to me by a PR representative working with Clinique
