Any fan of “Scandal” knows how busy Olivia Pope was. The character was constantly running around, saving some politician or getting into a little trouble of her own. So, it totally makes sense that makeup artists used an effortless product on Kerry Washington. According to the Clinique website, Chubby Sticks are described as a “no-mirror required” and “mistake proof” color. Allure seconds that it’s super easy to apply. That means that Olivia Pope could easily throw it in her purse and apply a fresh layer as she’s riding up the service elevator in the White House.
It also means that you can easily nail the look as well. Clinique’s Chubby Stick Moisturizing Color Lip Balm in Whole Lotta Honey is available to buy right now for $19. It’s also one of the brand’s permanent shades, so you should have no problem stocking up on this Olivia Pope-approved must-have. If Whole Lotta Honey is a bit too dark for your skin tone, though, there are plenty of lighter shades to choose from as well. The easy-to-apply product has 15 different shades to choose from.
