Aveda Jade Vine Petal Essence Eye Definer
Aveda Jade Vine Petal Essence Eye Definer

Aveda Jade Vine Petal Essence Eye Definer ($16.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as a “matte, bright, grass green.” It’s a yellow-toned, medium green with a matte finish. MAC Emerald Sea is less pigmented. Make Up For Ever #16L is darker, cooler-toned. MAC Landscape Green is darker, brighter. See comparison swatches.

It had decent to good color payoff in a single pass, and it was buildable to mostly opaque color after a few passes back and forth. However, I wasn’t able to achieve this kind of payoff on the lash line, because the consistency of the pencil was rather waxy and stubborn, so it didn’t glide on easily. It tended to drag and skip, and it ended up looking rather subtle when I tried to apply it. The wear was so-so, as the eyeliner (that I managed to apply) lasted six hours well and started to smudge after that.

The texture really made this a difficult product to apply, and it also resulted in weaker color payoff.

    is the grade correct? it doesnt LOOK like an F product to me, judging by the swatches

    • It doesn’t wear well for longer than six hours, painful to use, doesn’t apply with opaque color to the lash line because it’s SO stiff that you can’t use enough pressure to get it to deposit on the lid/lash line.

  2. What a shame that it performed so badly. It’s such a pretty shade.

  3. Kira

    It’s a shame, because the color is quite pretty and very appropriate for the spring time. When I first saw this I thought it was a colored pencil xD

  4. Omg, what a beautiful colour….so very unlike Aveda. Must get this soon.

  5. I have this and it’s soft, pigmented and beautiful!!

  6. That’s just a gross color. I’m all for green eye makeup, but ew.

  7. Amanda

    Wow it looks SO stiff in the pictures… Doesn’t look comfortable at all.

  8. Can’t stand when liners don’t apply smoothly

  9. I had a feeling this wasn’t going to get good reviews. It looked very stiff, like a colored pencil I used to use in elementary school to draw with.

    So unfortunate because you make it look so good :(

  11. artemis

    Lovely color…bad product :(

  12. What a shame, because it is a gorgeous color. It looks so pretty with your eyes.

    I am actually pretty happy with this liner! I mean it’s no Makeup Forever liner… But for the line, I’m pretty satisfied with it! I wear it as a cute cateye liner or use it on my inner eye corners. I must say I do have trouble wearing it on my lower lash line too, so I avoid it. But the color… I couldn’t resist! And I’ve found it lasts pretty long for me, which is great, because your review worried me.
