Aveda Lemongrass Petal Essence Single Eye Color
Aveda Lemongrass Petal Essence Single Eye Color

Aveda Lemongrass Petal Essence Single Eye Color ($14.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as a “satiny, light, iridescent green.” It’s a lightened, pastel green with warm, yellow undertones and a pearly sheen. It had good color payoff, and it applied well. When I tested it, the shade lasted eight hours with some minimal fading. bareMinerals Wicked ius lighter, not as warm-toned. MAC Juxt is slightly warmer. Dior Peacock #1 is slightly darker. Dior Peacock #5 is lighter. Urban Decay Jealous #2 is darker. Aveda Papyrus is darker, less frosted. See comparisons here.

Aveda Oceanica Petal Essence Single Eye Color ($14.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as a “satiny, bright, island blue.” It’s a medium, muted blue with a frosted sheen. It had good pigmentation and applied smoothly, but it did look noticeably faded after I wore it for eight hours. Dior Swimming Pool Turquoise is lighter. MAC Cool Heat is much darker. Guerlain Les Aquas #2 is slightly less blue. L’Oreal Endless Sea is a touch darker. MAC Parrot is bolder, slightly darker. Make Up For Ever #72 is brighter and matte. Tom Ford Emerald Lust #3 is darker, more frosted. See comparison swatches here.

    I am LOVING the swatch gallery links for dupe comparisons! It really helps visualize the similarities and differences. Major kudos for the recent website updates! Your hard work has definitely paid off and we appreciate it :D

  4. Lemongrass Petal is really cute! I used to really go for those sorts of shades!

  5. Neither colors are ones I’d select on my own, but they are both pretty. I have to say though… AVEDA really comes up with some of the prettiest, most appealing shade names
