E.L.F Jumbo Eyeshadow Stick Review

I've always wanted to try the Nyx Jumbo Pencils and heard that elf came out with some dupes that are quite comparable, so I had to try them out! 





Jumbo Eyeshadow Sticks:
These shadow sticks are $2 each on the e.l.f website but I don't think they are available in stores yet.   They have a small range of colors and  I decided to get Like a Boss (blue) and Midnight Rendezvous (black)..  They are creamy and have nice pigmentation.  They also blend well but I do have to say they make a better base for the shadow than being a shadow itself.

Like a Boss is a pretty bright navy blue and Midnight Rendezvous is a really nice black with gold shimmers in it.

Pros:

  • Inexpensive
  • Great pigmentation when not blended
  • Nice as a base for powder shadow
  • Creamy
Cons:
  • Creases
  • Short lasting power

Thoughts?:
  Again the prices for these are great.  I cannot compare them to the nyx jumbo pencils because I do not own any.  I am a bit disappointed in these, I guess my expectations for them were a little high.  They seep into the crease and fade when worn alone very quickly even on top of a eyeshadow primer.  They seem great as an eyeshadow base though.  I say give it a try and see what you think but I will not be repurchasing these or any of the other colors anytime soon.

I hope my review and swatches were helpful.  What do you think of them?  The elf mineral blushes will be next! If there is something you would like me to review go ahead and leave the product name in the comments below!

    1. I know right? The other colors don't seem too appealing I recommend getting the Maybelline Color Tattoos

  2. I like that you focused so much on the interpersonal aspects of growing a brand. One of the really tricky things to get across to new bloggers (without seeming like a jerk) is that it’s still all about reaching out to other people–you’re not just drawing people to you like some glowing beacon for internet moths, you’re going out there and communicating with them.
