Face Friday: Five Product Face

ff-5product-thI am all for using a million different products and brushes to make amazingly complicated masterpieces from my makeup collection. It can be great fun experimenting. However, there are also times when I just want to get ready and go. And that’s where a look like this is so useful. It is literally just five products, and the most complicated tool you need is your finger.



  • Tinted Moisturiser: MeMeMe – Flawless Tinted Moisturiser (02 – Beige Blush)
  • Blush: No.7 – Pop n Glow Cream Blush (Classic Rose)


  • Shadow: Clinique – Chubby Stick For Eyes (10 – Big Blue)
  • Mascara: Wet n Wild – XXL Lash Mascara (Black)


  • Lipstick: Rimmel – Apocalips (301 – Galaxy)

Okay, this literally takes minutes to do, and almost everything is done with fingers (except for the mascara and lipstick). It doesn’t look overly special, but is put together and looks so much better than my bare face. Besides, I try not to look ready for a night out early in the day.

Tried Tuesday: Clinique Chubby Stick

clinique-thIs it wrong of me to say I’ve never tired Clinique’s Chubby Sticks? It is. Well, I have to say it anyway. I’ve never tried Clinique’s Chubby Sticks. Until today. I’ve had one sitting in my review basket for the past while, after it arrived from U Magazine, and for Tried Tuesday, I’ve finally gotten round to it.


This particular one is shade 10 – Big Blue, for  eyes. Firstly, let me say that I have a problem with blue eye shadow. I just can’t  get it to work for me. Possibly because I’m blue eyed. I do know a very much younger version of me did try different shades, usually bright blue, before, and they just didn’t work. But will this one?


For those of you not familiar with chubby sticks, they’re very simple. They’re a twistable crayon/pencil type product that you just wipe over your eyelids, and are done. The formula is lovely and creamy, and feels great going on to the eye. The colour itself, even though it is named as blue, is really more of a bluish grey. This is, I think, a good thing, as it is perfect for those who don’t actually do “blue” shadows.

Now, as for how it looks on the eye. On the lids is the chubby stick, accompanied on the lashes by Kate Moss for Rimmel Scandaleyes Mascara in Jet Black. The photos were also taken during a rain shower, so the lighting isn’t great for them, but in Ireland we have to make do with what we’ve got. (They’re also shot really close up, and show up every imperfection)



I actually quite like how this looks. The fact that it is more grey than blue means it’s so much more wearable by everyone, and would be a great quick face product, ideal for when you’re in a hurry.

So, what do you think of Clinique’s chubby sticks? What shades should I be picking up? Please, as always, let me know in the comments.
