Summer Series - Chubby Sticks

I've just realised that these look wonky... great photography skills Emma! Anyway, on with the post, I only got into liking chubby sticks this year and they're so easy to wear as well as use. Having them as easy to use might sound a bit odd but I've always struggled with lipsticks with putting them on, I know with practise I will get better but at the moment it never looks perfect! However with most of these (apart from Unapologetic) I can apply them without a mirror either for topping it up or if I'm feeling like a pop of colour which is why I tend to keep a couple of these in my handbag. 

Chubby sticks are perfect for summer because of how sheer they are but still give your lips a nice subtle hint of colour, I never want something too bold and heavy in the summer months because I like to tone down my makeup when it's hot. 

 Left to right (and top to bottom) - Soap and Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Gloss Stick in Raplumzel, Revlon Colourburst Matte Balm in Unapologetic, Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Honey and No7 High Shine Lip Crayon in Delicate Pink. I haven't yet been in a daring mood to wear unapologetic on its own, I tend to lightly apply it and then apply a gloss over the top so it isn't as bold. \One day I will feel daring enough to wear a bold pink lip but today is not that day.

As the swatches above show, each chubby stick is quite sheer with a hint of colour which is what makes them so wearable and perfect for summer. I love how they have a nice shine to them and they are surprisingly hydrating. Although the Revlon Matte Lip Balm is matte on the lips it isn't drying on the lips which is always good as no one likes dry lips.

Have you tried any Chubby sticks? Any others that I should try?
