Clinique Chubby Highlight






In recent months I've become increasingly obsessed with highlighters. It started last year with MAC Cosmetic's limited edition Stereo Rose before I fell hard for The Balm's Mary Lou Manizer, fast forward to 2016 and I'm building quite the collection. I've always opted for powder highlighters but after attending an event with Clinique I fell a little in love with the Chubby Stick Hefty Highlighter and as I had Boots vouchers from my birthday, I snapped one up. 

The Hefty Highlight holds a luminous cream which is long wearing and oil free. Containing light reflecting properties the cream highlight draws light to your skin showing off your best features. The cream glides onto skin giving a beautiful, pinky shimmer. I've found it much easier to highlight my cupid's bow with this, being able to sweep on the skin and blend out in seconds. The tube itself is a lot bigger than I first expected, with 6g of product. The packaging is in Clinique's signature mirrored silver which I think makes it look minimal and sleek. As much as I'm a fan of pretty packaging at times, I'm also a fan of something a bit fuss free and Clinique nails it. 

I'd love to see the Hefty Highlight in some more shades as I'd definitely buy it again if it was released in a golden shimmer, perfect for a tan in the summer. Have you used the Hefty Highlight before? What did you think?
