|Becca Eye Tint|
For those of you who aren't familiar with Eye Tints, they are described as ingenious eye crème's with a unique formulation that glides on as a creme and sets to a powder. They're also described as being long-lasting, water-resistant, crease-resistant and easy to apply. The product is packaged in the same mini 7ml tube as the brands Beach Tint's which I personally love. I find the tubes are practical, make dispensing the right amount of product easy and they're of course hygienic too (I'm not a big fan of pots and jars).
One of the colours I picked up is Baroque which is described on the Becca site as a Mushroom Beige. I would describe it as more of a soft, golden brown which almost has a peachy hue to it in certain light. The lovely Zuzu of Everyday Beauty actually gave an excellent description of the colour a little while ago, so I knew what to expect when I ordered it. I would have preferred the Mushroom Beige that the Becca site promised, but the soft brown is still very pretty.

The actual formula is really lovely and is incredibly easy to apply. I find a very small amount (about the size of a grain of rice) is all that's needed for both eyes. The creme formula feels soft and smooth and blends effortlessly. They do seem to dry fairly quickly, but I still find I have plenty of time to play before they set. Baroque leaves lids with a subtle wash of budge proof colour which is perfect for when you want to create a quick and easy, natural look. I've found the shade makes a fantastic base for other shades too and definitely seems to improve the lasting power of my powder shadows. Lasting power is also excellent when I wear the shade alone, I've not experienced any creasing on my oily lids which I'm really impressed with.
Overall, I'm really quite pleased with my purchase. The colour is pretty (although slightly different to Becca's description), the formula is really easy to apply and seems to last well too. If you're a fan of cream eye shadows or fuss-free make up, I'd definitely recommend checking these out.
Eye Tints are available from Lookfantastic, Salon skincare, Beauty Expert, Zuneta and the Becca site where they're priced between £18.00 & £20.00 for a 7ml tube.
