Does not need setting powder
Needs to be worn over a moisturizer
Difficult to blend with other liquid products
I was always against the concept of stick foundations. I am a fan of liquids and the coverage they provide. I was still under the impression that stick foundations do not provide any coverage and are hard to blend and might end up looking weird. But, I was so wrong.
A friend of mine forced me to try it on, and it changed my opinion. This Clinique Chubby In The Nude Foundation Stick is serious business. First, the packaging is so travel-friendly. It fits in my pocket too. Then, the formula is creamy and yet doesn’t feel heavy on the skin. It blends like butter. I apply a few strokes of this stick on my face, blend with my finger, and I am done. It takes me 30 seconds to get ready.
Moreover, this foundation has a very powdery finish, despite being creamy. So, I do not need a setting powder. It does not transfer and stays on for about 6 to 7 hours. Touching up is also pretty easy. This is perfect for anyone looking for a quick makeup fix in the morning.
A few downsides to this product are using a liquid concealer with this is a pain. It ends up getting cakey and patchy. And, using a heavy moisturizer under the foundation is a must. Or else, it tends to dry out and settle in fine lines. Nonetheless, I love it, and you should like it too.

Lightweight and breathable
Makes skin look moisturized and healthy
Not very long-lasting
I own two sticks of this foundation, so you can guess how much I love it. I moisturize my face and use both the sticks at the same time. The one with my skin tone goes everywhere on the face, and the darker one works as the contour. I blend it with my kabuki brush. I do not use my fingers because it appears a little streaky then. With a kabuki brush, everything blends well.
I do not have a lot of imperfections on the face and for sheer coverage and everyday use, this foundation stick is pretty good. I use Clinique’s liquid foundation on days when I want medium to full coverage. But, I truly love this one.

Easy to use
I like how this foundation is so easy to use. It doesn’t take very long to apply it and blend it. It appears natural and makes my skin tone look even. I do not use makeup much, and this stick is perfect for achieving a healthy glow on the skin.
But, it does not last very long. I have large pores. Whatever kind of primer I use, this foundation still tends to settle into the pores and highlights them after a few hours of use. I use it on days when I step out for just a few hours. I like the product, but I wish it lasted longer.

Limited shade range
I tried this in the store. I had to try four shades that were almost close to my skin tone. It blended so well. And the foundation didn’t feel like a thing on my skin. I liked the coverage and feel. But, I couldn’t find my shade.
There are only eight shades in this range, and I am sad that there was no shade that would match my skin tone. Sigh!
The foundation is available in 8 shades:
Very fair, cool neutral undertone
Moderately fair, warm neutral undertone
Moderately fair, cool neutral undertone
Medium, cool neutral undertone
Deep, cool/warm neutral undertone
