Clinique Chubby in the Nude Foundation Stick.

Clinique is adding to their Chubby Stick franchise with a foundation and I was excited to give it a try! I mean, what's better than a portable foundation stick that can travel easily? I took the new Chubby in the Nude Foundation Stick with me on my recent Florida vacation and I was seriously impressed.

Clinique Chubby in the Nude Foundation Stick was built to be portable and provide on-the-go touch-ups, but honestly, it' so long-wearing that touch-ups are not needed with this. It's not what you'd expect out of a cream stick foundation. What is really great about this, is that it's super buildable — you can build up your coverage from sheer to medium depending on how much you apply. It's really moisturizing but leaves a soft, sheer, natural finish giving me a no-makeup, makeup look.

Chubby in the Nude is made up of a superior blend of gels and waxes that provides the long wear and keeps color true all day long. It even lasted on me through all of the Florida heat and humidity.

There are 10 shades in all, and what I really like about this is that I used 'Bountiful Beige all over as foundation but also have 'Intense Ivory (a much lighter shade) and used that as highlighter. It's super easy to just draw it on across the tops of the cheeks, down the center of the nose and blend out to give skin the perfect highlight with the lighter shade.

Clinique Chubby in the Nude Foundation Stick is available now at Clinique counters nationwide in stores like Macy's, Sephora, Nordstrom and online at
