That's so frustrating!!! I think I'm going to call MAC HQ today to verify because these inconsistent answers are not acceptable, especially when it comes to something as important as the safety of your EYES, for cryin' out loud...
ETA: Just got off the phone, and what a waste of time it was. The woman on the other end just said to ask someone at a Pro store. She also said they don't have any sort of list they can send me regarding safety (although I'm pretty sure there's a whole post on Specktra regarding pigment safety that came from a MAC HQ fax) and that if something is NOT listed as eye safe, that just means they didn't test it on the eyes. While I know this is one possible reason for something to not be listed as eye safe, I know it's not the ONLY reason. Glitter, for example, is not considered eye safe mainly because the particles are pretty big and have the potential to scratch your eyeball.
So basically the message seems to be: This might be safe to use on your eyes, but we're not sure or just don't want to tell you. Take your chances and don't hold us responsible if you scratch your cornea.
Don't get me wrong, I love MAC and am sickly addicted to their products. The whole glitter thing just irks me!!!
