"Green Envy" is actually more of a dull muddy gray than the olive shade you'd expect based on its packaging, and it imparts a distinctly grubby, greasy look to your eyes, so both halves of its name are inaccurate.


Speaking of the packaging, it's really quite clever -- in a bad way. Since the eyeliner's retractable, Jordana can get away with only putting 0.01oz of product in a tube that looks as though it *ought* to hold the standard 0.04oz. (Or at least I assume that's the standard -- all my other eyeliner pencils from NYC and Rimmel seem to contain 0.04, at least.) Since the price of these eyeliners is about middle-of-the-road for a drugstore brand, you can do the math and see that this product actually comes out four times more expensive per ounce than its competitors. Nice one, guys! I almost didn't notice.


Is the convenience of using a retractable eyeliner really worth paying four times more per ounce? If you have to ask yourself this question, you are probably already rich enough that the answer doesn't matter. For the rest of us, the whole situation is ridiculous.


As far as application goes, the product drags and shudders its way across your eyelid. Expect the tip of the eyeliner to break halfway across.


So what's a girl to do? Either pay the same price for a Rimmel pencil that will actually do its job, or pay 99 for an NYC pencil that, if not exactly a great eyeliner, can still serve as a brow pencil. Jordana's Green Envy isn't good for either of those things.


Luckily, the packaging is recyclable. At least Mother Nature will come out ahead.
