I love a good foundation review, so I couldn't wait to share my findings about Clinique's new Chubby In The Nude Foundation Stick with you. It seems like Clinique is launching a Chubby of everything, but I'm not complaining as I've been smitten with the Chubby hype since day one. This new foundation stick promises easy light coverage which is buildable to a heavier coverage, with a soft creamy formula that wears well for 8 hours without settling into pores. Whew, that's a whole lot of promises. So does this new Chubby live up to them?
I found this one waiting for me when I came from holiday and I immediately felt like it would've been the perfect holiday handbag companion to have with me for small touch-ups. I must admit that I underestimated this foundation a little as I focused on the promise of sheer, natural coverage. You see, I have acne scars (and a recent new breakout, boo) that I want to cover. I don't mind going out without foundation, but when I use one I usually like it to be at least a medium coverage as I only use concealer under my eyes. But boy was I wrong to think of this new Chubby as another light "is it even there" summer base - this thing knows how to cover!

Clinique is launching 6 shades in Belgian stores, with an extra 4 shades added on the Clinique website. I'm wearing Intense Ivory which is the second lightest shade. The funny thing is that this is my version of being a little tan during the summer - during the winter I'd probably need to opt for Abundant Alabaster.
