As much as we love bright pops of colour, lately we’ve been veering towards metallic hues. Makeup products in shades of copper, gold and silver give a laidback, edgy vibe that we just can’t get enough of! Clinique’s Chubby Stick Shadow Tint For Eyes in ‘Ample Amber’ is the stuff metallic dreams are made of, so naturally we had to get it.
Like all products from the Chubby Stick line, this eye shadow comes in the form of a mega-sized crayon, which makes it ideal for touch-ups on the go. The outer packaging matches the colour of the shadow perfectly. The shade name is printed in silver to go with the cap.
The dome-shaped bullet allowed the shadow to go on smoothly without any tugging. One swipe provides a sheerer finish, but we prefer going over our lids about three to four times for a saturated look. ‘Ample Amber’ is a beautiful, coppery-bronze shade with a frosted finish. The colour leans more towards the warmer side but does have a hint of pink to it.
We wore this eye shadow for a full day of work and by the end of the day, we were not disappointed. The shadow stayed true to colour and shimmery despite it being a hot day. It also proved to be waterproof – a fact we realised after we mistakenly washed our face. Those with oily lids may need to layer it over a primer, as it can migrate around your lid.
Creamy, lightweight and shimmery, this shadow can be worn both at night and in the day. We love the fact that it gives our eyes a natural look, yet manages to open them up. All in all, we highly recommend that you succumb to the metallic mania and buy this gorgeous shade immediately!
