Clinique Chubby Sticks, My New Best Friend!Thursday, January 08, 2015
During my first trimester, I was still wearing makeup ever time I would step out of the house, but as my pregnancy entered the second trimester, I was all about dressing for comfort and that meant going out almost makeup-free.
It didn't have anything to do with concern for makeup ingredients, it was more on laziness. Seriously, I never thought that I would be attending parties last holiday season makeup-free, but I did. With only little makeup on. Thank goodness for makeup like these for preggy times! LOL
When I received these chubby sticks from Clinique, I thought I would only be able to use them under lipstick because they're so cheer, but it actually makes me look put-together even without full makeup on!

Something you think you need? More after the break!
I have always been a fan of crayon-type lippies. They're very convenient to use and portable too! Easy to use and it's just overloaded with cuteness. Every brand seem to be coming out with their own version of a crayon-type lippie now-a-days. Clinique being (if not the first) one of the first to come out with the crayon-type lip product.
For me at least, during my second trimester I was all about being comfortable, and that meant having as minimal makeup as possible because I didn't the feel of having anything heavy on my face. Of course except when I am attending events then I will make the extra effort to put full makeup. But when I just want to go around the mall or have lunch with my mom and my sister, I go almost makeup free! And because of this, Clinique Chubby Stick has become my new best friend.
Aside from them being lightweight on the lips, they are fragrance-free! No sickening sweet fruity smell so you can be sure that they won't make your overly-sensitive pregnant nose go aahhh-chooooo, or make so turn green (you know what I'm talking about!)
