Anyone Else With Problems With Maybelline Eyeliner?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Has anyone else noticed a sensitivity to Maybelline solid eyeliner? I had used it for years without any reaction. About a month or so ago, my lids started feeling itchy and like there was grit near my lid lines. I thought it was from not removing the makeup at bedtime ;) ....so I got better about taking it off with plain Vaseline. It did not help, so I went bare(not a pretty sight......a co-worker asked me if I was tired!!) After the itch/grit went away, I bought some pricey liner(I sure missed the $5 variety) and the itch stayed away. I thought after a few weeks, I'd retry the Maybelline today and within a half hour the itch/grit came back. Off it went again. I doubt I;ll retry, but I was curious if anyone else has had a similar reaction.

AND HAPPY NEW YEAR TO EVERYONE !!!!!!!

Hey mamabear,

Happy New Year to You!

I can't vouch for the eye liner, but I believe that the mascara contains gluten.

I have reactions like that to a lot of pencil eyeliners.

You should check out the Everyday Minerals thread :D

Everyday Minerals has eyeliners you can order for $2.50. It's all natural stuff (just a few ingredients), and doesn't seem to irritate anybody's eyes. It comes in a little pot of powder though....but it's easy to apply and stays on all day.

:)

Your story is so close to my own recent experience! I used Maybelline eyeliner forever, then about two months ago, I began to have an allergic reaction to it. Of course, it took me awhile to figure out, as I had been using it for so long. I now use Almay, which I confirmed was gluten free. My eyes got puffy and itchy and red. It was awful. I hate it when formulas change and we have to suffer.

Did you speak with Almay on the phone? I just spoke with them yesterday, regarding makeup remover pads and eyeliner and they said they could not guarantee it was gluten free.

I don't know about gluten in Maybelline, but many years ago I decided to save money and switch from Revlon to Maybelline mascara; ouch!! that was a disaster. For a couple of years after that I could not wear any mascara, even

the Revlon. Eventually tried Physicians Formula and that was okay. I am not even sure what I'm using now, but it could well be Almay, and have had no problem with it gluten or no. I will never touch another Maybelline product..

I wear the expensive pencil eyeliners from Benefit and the cheap ones from Prestige (made in Germany). I use Cover Girl mascara, but I have to make sure to get the formula with shellac and not wheat protein. I get them when they go on sale 2 for one.
