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.

Comments that do not adhere to our comment policy may be removed. Discussion and debate are highly encouraged but we expect community members to participate respectfully. Please keep discussion on-topic, and if you have general feedback, a product review request, an off-topic question, or need technical support, please contact us!

Please help us streamline the comments' section and be more efficient: double-check the post above for more basic information like pricing, availability, and so on to make sure your question wasn't answered already. Comments alerting us to typos or small errors in the post are appreciated (!) but will typically be removed after errors are fixed (unless a response is needed).

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!
