Some things are worth a second look.
Some beauty is so subtle you almost miss it.
When we were up in Norway at my brother-in-law´s place, we went for a lot of short hikes. Now the northern part of Norway isn’t as colorful and blooming as the Caribbean may be, but the mountains and the harsher landscape do hold a beauty of their own.
A beauty on second glance. Just like Clinique Chubby Stick for eyes in “Bountiful Beige”.
I love my Chubby Stick in Mega Melon, so of course I was excited when they steadily expanded the range, introducing Chubby Sticks for the eyes and the cheeks.
But as these products aren’t cheap and the reviews I read were mixed, I was hesitant.
Earlier this year, Douglas had one of it´s promotions, offering holders of the “Douglas Card” a travel size version of the Chubby Stick for eyes. I asked my mother to get me one, and received it when I came back from New Zealand.
Looking at the shade, I regretted buying it. Don’t get me wrong, it looked pretty, but I knew in an instant that the color wasn’t going to show up on my lids.

Already owning it, I figured it wouldn’t hurt to try it at least.
Just as assumed, it is hardly noticeable on my lids.
At least not on first sight.
But when I move and the light hits my face, my eyelids get a soft, satiny sheen. The capillaries ain´t showing and everything looks fresh and alive.
I discovered a “My Lids But Better” shade!

I tend to grab it a lot if I am in a hurry and want to look polished, but effortless.
Now rumor has it that these tend to crease quite a lot, and even though this one doesn’t on me, this may be down to the fact that I would hardly notice it if it did.
Another added bonus: on my skin this works really well as a creamy highlight, subtle and easy to blend, just the way I prefer it.
If you are looking for intense color, longevity or a dramatic difference to your look, this one won´t be for you.
But if you are a fair skinned girl looking for a subtle everyday color, you can find this beauty for 18,99 € at your Clinique counter or on Amazon here.
Now getting back to this stone, I had to take a picture. But bear with me, the beauty was equally hard to capture on camera.
