Drawn from jasmine petals and geranium leaves, aromatic flower waxes make this formula creamy, blendable, smooth. Line, define, accent, or shade—our pencil stays color-true on eyes or brow, while still respecting the delicate skin around the eye.
This review is for Aveda’s Petal Essence Eye Definer in Wild Indigo, which released with the Spring 2013 Art of Nature collection. Wild Indigo is a matte, midnight blue shade.
Aveda’s makeup comes in eco-friendly, minimalist packaging. The pencil is made of wood and will need to be sharpened.
Wild Indigo is a deep navy blue with a matte, semi-opaque finish. The color is strong and stays within the distinctly blue family instead of looking simply like a light black.
This eye pencil’s formula feels a little stiff on the skin, but it’s creamy enough to deposit color onto the lash-line without significant tugging or skipping. The formula wears well through the day without noticeable fading. It’s not smudge- or water-proof, but it should stay put through the day as long as you don’t rub your eyes.
Ease of Use: 8.75/10
This pencil feels a little sharp on the skin and doesn’t have the creamiest formula, but it transfers color without too much pressure or skipping.
For $16.00 you get 0.04 ounces (1.14 grams) of product. This is the average amount of product you get in a pencil liner and is actually on the lower end of the price range compared to similar brands.
