Clinique Whopping Willow Chubby Stick Shadow Tint
Clinique Whopping Willow Chubby Stick Shadow Tint

Clinique Whopping Willow Chubby Stick Shadow Tint ($16.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “golden sage green.” It’s a subtly warm-toned olive green with strong olive/khaki tones and a soft, shimmery finish. MAC Vintage Coin is much darker. Guerlain Coup de Foudre #1 is a powder product and greener. Sephora Snakeskin Dress is a touch greener and a powder product. MAC Sumptuous Olive has a stronger brown undertone and is also a powder eyeshadow. Inglot #433 is ever-so-slightly warmer but is very similar–definitely the closest–though it is a powder product.

I would describe the payoff of Whopping Willow as rather opaque, but it is easy enough to get just a sheer wash of color, but if you were to just do one stroke of the pencil against your arm, it would be semi-opaque.  It builds up color very well, as it doesn’t bunch up on itself, so it goes on smoothly, evenly, and can be built to opaque color.    The consistency is more waxy than it is creamy, which helps it apply color smoothly, but it did tug just a bit at the lid.  Whopping Willow lasted just over ten hours on me, and there was faint creasing after twelve hours. It comes in a twist-up pencil so there’s no sharpening required.

Whopping Willow

B+

Its best attribute is that it can build from sheer to more opaque color, but it could be creamier, which would make it easier to blend and apply.

    The name makes me think of the Whomping Willow from Harry Potter….I wonder if that’s the name they were going for but misspelled it…

    Anyway, it’s a very nice color. I love gold shades and this looks more like an antiqued gold than olive to me….maybe it’s jut my screen’s settings though….

      The Whomping Willow was the first thing I thought of! :D

      Love the Harry Potter-inspired name but it’s not a misspelling, it’s a play on words. “Whomping” means to strike (the willow attacks people/things who get too close). “Whopping” means large, and all the Chubby Sticks have names that play on the chubby theme (plus, the name Whomping Willow is probably trademarked to Warner Bros. anyway).

    I love this color!

  7. Oh gosh gorgeous color–I can never resist a pretty olive-y green like this! But I am not sure about the wear for those with oily lids…like me. I did pick up 2 of the Laura Mercier ones and I am optimistic about those, though

  8. Ahhh this is JUST my shade! So glad you reviewed this first. It’s the most memorable one in the whole bunch for me :)

    Tried this in-store last week & didn’t like it. I didn’t find it to be anything remotely unique or special.
