I recently purchased this jumbo eyeshadow stick from Elf at Target a couple of weeks back and I have been trying it out ever since. I purchased it in the shade Little Miss Thing, a champagne gold jumbo eyeshadow stick with shimmer. There were three options in total at Target, but I felt like this one would get the most use from me because I mainly wear natural eye makeup. 

The packaging of this product is slim and convenient to throw in a small travel makeup bag if necessary. One of the big perks about these jumbo eyeshadow sticks from Elf is that they do not need to be sharpened--it is a mechanical twist up pencil, which makes it convenient for lazy girls like who can never seem to find their eyeliner sharpener....

Swatches of Little Miss Thing without Flash

The shade Little Miss Thing is a light champagne gold shimmer. With just one swipe of the jumbo eyeshadow stick, I was able to get a very opaque swatch on my hand without too much pressure. For those who have the Maybelline Color Tattoo in Bold Gold, Little Miss Thing is much lighter and has a slight pink tinge whereas Bold Gold is more of an antique gold. I had no irritation when using Little Miss Thing from the jumbo eyeshadow stick. The eyeshadow was very buildable and blended easily on the eye. 

The main downside of this jumbo eyeshadow stick is that in creases almost instantly on me without any primer. Within 10 minutes, I already saw the eyeshadow creasing on the inner folds of my eye. I am used to wearing eyeshadow without primer, mainly because of the humid weather in Florida, so it is not that big of a deal for me. I've also tried wearing the jumbo eyeshadow stick with eyeshadow on top but it still creased within 10 minutes for me. With the eyeshadow primer, it lasted for 9 hours (I haven't tried it longer than that, but it still looked as good as when I first applied my makeup!)

Overall, I would recommend this product if you do not mind using an eyeshadow primer (Wet n' Wild Take the Day Eyeshadow Primer is a drugstore eyeshadow primer that I recommend!). However, if you do not use eyeshadow primer, then I recommend you pass on this product. Hopefully one day Elf will make an jumbo eyeshadow stick that doesn't crease! The closest thing so far I have found for a drugstore creaseless eyeshadow is the Maybelline Color Tattoos, and even then they crease on me after 8 hours!

Let me know what you think of this products on the comment section below! I'm currently waiting on the weather in Florida to hit 90 degrees Fahrenheit before I post a review of the Covergirl Outlast Stay Fabulous Foundation. It's survived with the Elf HD Powder and Rimmel Stay Matte at 90 + degrees, but I have yet to try it by itself! 


  1. Great review! Have you ever used the NYX Jumbo Pencils? I've never used this ELF shadow stick (my Target doesn't have this product) so I can't say for sure, but I find that if I only apply a small amount of the NYX pencil it helps prevent creasing on me.

    1. I haven't tried the NYX Jumbo Pencils yet. Every time I see them in stock, they are almost always open and used :/ They are on my to do list of things to get though :B

  2. Great review!I actually purchased one of these in "French Lace", which I loved, but it creased on me too. *sigh*

    1. Aww :( Yea, that's really an unpleasant thing about these jumbo eyeshadow products. Having them crease is not a good thing unfortunately :(
