They’re fat, chunky and cute, they come in eight shades for €26 a pop and unless you live near a Brown Thomas branch with a Bobbi Brown counter, you’re bang out of luck to try the new Art Sticks until October 30th, when they’ll go nationwide.

Bobbi brown Art Sticks 

Unlike other chubby-alike products, Bobbi’s version is actual proper lipstick in a chunky pencil format, so it’s more stickable aboutable than the more usual tinted balm we’ve become used to. Downside? You have to pare these, but you do get a sharpener included, so that’s something.

Shades range from a deadly tomato-red to a lilac-tinged brown, daytime pink and a good classic red, so most bases are covered. Definitely worth taking a look if a satin shine, dense pigment and easy application’s your thing.
