Becca Eye Tint in ‘Vicuna’

becca_eye_tint_vicuna_swatchI have been using this eye tint almost on a daily basis for about four or five weeks. That’s almost unheard of for me – usually I’m chopping and changing, testing out new things, finding faults with the old things.. But I can’t find much of a fault with the Becca Eye Tint. It gives a sheer gleam of colour across the lid that can be built up to a more intense effect – the Vicuna shade is beautiful, a peachy-nude that makes the lid look absolutely smooth and even.

This formula is crease-proof and budge-proof, making it perfect for summertime, and perfect for creating an easy ‘no-effort’ sexy eye. I just slick a little bit on with my fingertips and leave it to dry for a few seconds and it stays on for the whole day. I love that I can leave it bare for a glossy, sexy eye, or I can use it as a shadow base. The sheen from the Eye Tint seems to shine through powder formulas to give them a slight ‘lift’ and extra brightness.

This really is the ultimate in ‘easy eyes’ – take a look at the Becca video I made to see how simple it is to apply. No brushes required, and there’s no clean-up required because there’s no dropped powder or smudged product. This will most definitely be a re-purchase, but I was rather taken aback to see that it had sold out on the Becca website! You can put your name on a waiting list at Cult Beauty HERE.

Becca’s Eye Tint in Vicuna costs £20 and I think that’s well worth it for such a well-performing product. There are quite a few cream eyeshadow products similar to this on the market but none that I’ve tried so far have come close in terms of quality!

Becca Eye Tint, is £20 from SpaceNK here.

    Becca Eye Tint in Baroque are my go-to for my oily eyelids; they stay on all day with minimal creasing, no primer required. And a tube last forever, even with daily use! I own Baroque, but am picking up Vicuna and Gilt for the summer months.

    My fave eye colour too. It stood the test when I spent several days in the outback on my son’s hot and dusty property/farm over the recent long weekend. It stayed perfect every day despite the outback conditions.

    I love this stuff. I have the Eye Tint in Baroque and wear it a lot in warm weather. Last year I had surgery, and I was told I could wear no makeup. Were they NUTS? I furtively snuck on a me-but-better face using Becca Eye Tint, and I wore Becca Beach Tint in Watermelon on my lips and cheeks. No one could tell, but I knew that if I died on the operating table, I’d die pretty. :)

    i agree this is a superb product which i find myself wearing most days. also love baroque which the posters above referred to and which is a kind of taupe grey – tend to use that more in autumn / winter and vicuna in the summer.

    I’ve started using and loving Becca after watching your YouTube tutorial for glowing skin using Becca products. I love their approach to healthy natural skin. I always try to have a natural look and love their tinted moisturiser because I don’t wear foundation. All of their shades are stunning and I love the finish of Becca products. Can’t wait to try the Baroque eye tint, I’m sure it’s gorgeous! X

    Yes! I agree with Ella. I got to try this product free through a promo and I absolutely love it, thought I would continue to use it after trying different brands without much success but Oh the price! For suh a small amount I’m finding it very difficult to justify. Have to think again and perhaps back to the drawing board until my next trip to England. 20pounds is expensive but try $42 in Australia. Come on people a Becca
