What are some possible irritating ingredients in eye shadows/liners/mascaras. I know this is a broad question and that everyone is different, but I think one of the ingredients in my eye products may be irritating my eyes.

You're right that it's a broad question, with broad answers. Very Happy Most mascaras have paraffin wax and even tar in them, as well as other creepy chemicals. And many cheaper eye shadow brands have a lot of talc, plus bismuth oxychloride (?did I get that right?) which some people are sensitive to.

There are TONS of more natural options: for mascara, you can go with a mineral makeup company (Alima, Everyday Minerals, Lumiere, Glominerals, BE, etc.) or a natural cosmetics company like Ecco Bella, Gabriel, Dr. Hauschka, etc. I personally don't think much of Aveda's natural cosmetics anymore, but they do at least have a fairly broad range of well-pigmented shadows.

My fave natural mascara is Dr. Hauschka, by a long shot. I like both their new volumizing formula and their old non-volumizing one, for different looks. I also used to use Ecco Bella, and I've tried at least two by Aveda. Any of those are going to be more "natural" than your typical drugstore or department store mascara.

Hope this helps! Let us know specifically what you're trying to combat and some of us might be able to help tailor advice a bit more to your specific situation. Smile

that helps a lot. right now I am using lorac eye shadow and mascara (as well as BE eyeshadows), Dr. H's eye liner and that's pretty much it... I'm trying to narrow it down from there. I thought it was the BE for a while, but I stopped using that and still had problems.

what brands are good for sensitive eye people like me? Dr. H seems to be a popular choice. Any others?

I tried Nvey Ecco mascara and had a terrible reaction to it - and I don't have sensitive eyes or skin. I don't know what's in it that made me react, but it did. I just started using Zuzu Luxe mascara instead (and their lipstick) and I love it. The mascara is reasonably priced (US$13) and I recently did a review of it on this forum, probably not so detailed but it's there. I also started using everyday minerals eye shadow with a lot of success.

Could ingredients like bismuth and silica cause perioral dermatitis?
