Clinique Chubby Stick Shadow Tints for Eyes are described as a "Sheer wash of lightweight, creamy colour" that's also "layerable and long-wearing". Of the 12 shades available, I have three - Pink & Plenty, Lavish Lilac, and Bountiful Beige. Bountiful Beige is a classic warm, frosty champagne. Lavish Lilac is a dusty lilac with a satin finish. Pink & Plenty is a beautiful (and interesting) light pink with a gold frost. 

All three shades lived up to their description in how smooth, light, and layerable they are! These particular shades won't be bold by any means, but they can be built up to achieve a payoff that is true to  the way it appears in stick form. I applied each one directly to a bare lid and none of the shades pulled or tugges at my eyelid. Not only did ech shade play well together, but the acted as nice color bases as well. They aren't sticky in the least, but they are good for transforming whatever shadow you might want to put on top. Without a primer, these lasted a solid 8 hours without creasing or fading! Long-wearing indeed.

Each pencil is in a well-made automatic dispenser, so you don't have to worry about sharpening. The one downside is that the blunt end makes it difficult to apply it directly to narrow areas like your inner corner or lower lash line. While this is easily remedied with a small brush, it might be a deterrent for those who are minimalists when it comes to the makeup process.  

Individually, Clinique Chubby Stick Shadow Tints for Eyes go for $16. If you are a Clinique fanatic, love the pencil-shadow format, or are just looking to pick up a great product in fab colors for spring, these are worth a peek! I also did a step-by-step picture tutorial using all three!
