Eyes swell, but face isn't affected?

I have to be careful with new makeup or new soaps because it may cause an allergic reaction. But I can't test the product on my arm because it looks like only my eyes are affected when an allergic reaction occurs, even if I use it all over my face. I don't get hives or any itchiness anywhere else.

Does anyone know why this is? And it seems to affect my left eye more than my right. Is there a way to test the product before putting it on my face, or do I just have to risk it?

Stick with non allergenic ones- esp with no fragrance. What products -eyeliner, foundation,etc-does this?
