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.

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.

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

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.
