I Love a Good Chubby

I have a big mouth. Literally and figuratively. My lips are huge. When I was in grammar school, kids made fun of me for having big lips. But now, even my botox doctor (yes, I botox) refers to my lips as "perfect" and once asked me "who did them?" I have to credit my father (the original Sidney Stone), from whom I inherited both my big lips and my big mouth.

Now that I have "grown into" my big mouth, I've accepted a few challenges that come along with it. Trendy lipstick colors can be very tricky when you have really full lips. I can't wear bright red without looking like a truck stop whore. I can't wear anything too shiny or glossy or glittery. For the past few years, I've just done a simple lip pencil over my favorite lip balm.

Well, now Clinique has introduced these amazing little bullets of lip perfection called "Chubby Sticks" - a brilliant combination of lip pencil and balm that come in the most amazing colors. (I'm wearing Whole Lotta Honey in the photo above. I'm also a big fan of Graped Up). Infused with shea butter and mango, these babies slide onto your lips like silk. And, if you prime first with Urban Decay's Lip Primer Potion, the color will last all day.

I am so completely obsessed with the Chubbies that my sweet friend Rebecca from the Clinique counter at Macy's will text me to let me know when a new shipment arrives. And I go running. Because honestly, who doesn't love a good Chubby?
