I was so excited when Influenster emailed me to let me know they would be sending over their latest VoxBox because it was a fancy one! 

I was chosen to test out the Giorgio Armani Eye Tints and new Eccentrico mascara

You guys, I literally ran a victory lap around our condo when the box was delivered. My husband was thoroughly amused. 

And before you write me off as a total label snob -- hold your judgment. 

I actually LOVE the Armani Eyes to Kill mascara. So I was actually most excited about trying out another mascara by this brand. I had high hopes because my Eyes to Kill mascara is pretty darn fabulous and does my lashes all kinds of favors. 

I was almost excited about the eye tints because the colors they sent me were right in my wheelhouse: neutral shades that I could wear to the office, on a date, or to the grocery store. You know, in case I'm discovered while shopping for avocados.

However, if I'm being totally transparent, I was a bit nervous about the eye tints. I've always found liquid eyeshadows tricky to work with.

But if I (potentially) was going to be bested by another liquid eye shadow, it may as well be designer. So I dove in. And I was pretty pleasantly surprised. Check out the pretty and totally wearable look I put together. 

Now that I knew I could use these new makeup goodies, it was time to dive in and tell you all about them. 

Today we are going to review them and show you exactly how to use them and how they perform, so you can decide if they're worth the purchase. 

Let's start by discussing their claims: 

Eye Tints (available in 17 shades; retail price $39): 

  • Boast innovative formula that transforms from liquid to powder and instantly adheres to eyelid
  • Provides 16 hours of smudge-proof, crease-proof wear
  • Blends seamlessly and disperses high-density color
Eccentrico mascara (available in two shades; retail price $32):
  • High-volume and long wearing
  • Precise lash separation
  • Buildable formula
  • Instant volume and definition with flake-free, clump-free results
Sounds promising right? Let's talk about how they measure up.
