Ever since trying out the BECCA Beach Tint and liking it, I’ve wanted to try out their eye counterpart—the eye tint. I haven’t gotten my hands on any of them, until now. The BECCA Eye Tint “offers adjustable levels of sheer to high pigment color when applied with a brush or finger.” Basically, it’s just a “semi-sheer créme that tints lids with a soft wash of colour.” Judging from my skin tone, I probably should have known that Baroque would be too light for me.
Here’s a fairly heavy swatch that I tried really hard to make opaque. I barely blended it out, but I think you can see the color? It’s a cool-toned greige, in my eyes.
Look at how much it doesn’t show up, though. I feel like I’m those evil people who sold the emperor his new clothes. Seriously, this is the pigmentation after many layers of Baroque (Baroque? More like b-roke! Boo, I’m not funny.). Barely any color. I guess a great eye product for a “no makeup makeup look,” but honestly, why bother?
It doesn’t look like anything. (Sorry for the hair.)
With a darker color in the crease, you can see Baroque better, but I mean—of course you would. The thing is, it’s not even totally crease-resistant either, so it’s not like I can use it as a primer. I feel like it would fare well as a base over primer and under shadow, but I feel like it defeats the purpose of the product since I find BECCA a great brand for fuss-free, natural-looking makeup that’s easy to use. If it’s a part two of a three-step application process, then I don’t think it’s doing its job very well.
If I got a deeper shade, I’m sure I’d enjoy it. As it is, I don’t think Baroque has convinced me of the merits of an Eye Tint.
