Hello beautiful ladies,
How are you all doing? Since the time I was a child, I liked collecting colored pencils, so I used to have many different kind of pencil colors, but now as I am a grown-up, I don’t have them. So, to fulfill my desire of owing many colored pencils, I decided to buy some eye and lip pencils, but most of the brands were costly, so I wasn’t able to buy many due to my restricted budget, but when I came across Jordana brand on an e-commerce site, I found that pencils from this brand are so affordable, so I bought 5 of the pencils just to try them. There were many colors available and I wanted all, but I restricted myself, got only 2 eye pencils and 3 lip pencils, so that I can test the formulation first. Today, I will be reviewing one of the eye pencils I bought from Jordana. One of the shades I bought is called Emerald.
049 OZ / 1.39 gm.
$1.49, In India, they are available for INR 129 or INR 149 (different sites have different prices), I bought it for INR 149.
It is just like any normal colored pencil with a colored body (same as the color of the liner) and has a golden cap. The overall look is not so classy and it might look cheap to some. The only thing I was satisfied with was the cap, which is long enough to get fixed properly so that it doesn’t come off on its own.

My Take on Jordana Eyeliner Pencil – Emerald:
Emerald, as is obvious from the name is a shade of dark green and the same is reflected on the body of the pencil. Unfortunately, the actual color is not as dark as the outer body. There are many eye pencils which give a good color in just one swipe and this particular one is exactly opposite. One swipe does not make the color visible at all; I tried 2-3 swipes after which a light shade of green became visible, but in order to get the actual dark green color, multiple swipes are required (at least 7-8).
After so many swipes, the color becomes visible, but a lot of clumps are visible too. It is easy to get so many swipes on the hand for swatching, but on eyes repeating the liner 7-8 times gets too difficult especially because of its hardness. The pencil is too harsh to apply. The only thing I like about this pencil was the staying power; it’s not amazing but is at least better than some of its not so good properties. The liner stays for around 4-5 hours with a little fading.
Pros of Jordana Eyeliner Pencil – Emerald:
- Decent staying power.
Cons of Jordana Eyeliner Pencil – Emerald:
- Cheap looking packaging.
- Too harsh to use.
- Not so pigmented.
- Looks clumpy after multiple swipes.
Would I Repurchase Jordana Eyeliner Pencil – Emerald?
No, although it is affordable, but I will not buy it again. I already have two and I am not sure whether I will be using these or not.
Do I Recommend Jordana Eyeliner Pencil – Emerald?
No, I would rather suggest spending a little more and getting something better.
1/5 and that too because of the price and many color options.
