Are any of you allergic to MAC products?

Sadly, when I wear deeply pigmented purple MAC shadows, my eyelids get puffy and pink. :( It breaks my heart because I LOVE purple shadows and I have green eyes (killer with purple shadows). I must be allergic to one of the dyes or something. Shadowy Lady, Sketch are a few of the culprits (and some of my favs). Anyone else experience anything like this?

Such a bummer. So sorry. :( I still wear them sometimes anyway and just suffer the consequences. Sometimes I eyelids will be puffy for a few days afterward, but oh well.

Yes I am allergic to the MAC mascaras! I don't know if it is all of them but I have tried 2 different formulas so far and both of them have made my eyes red and swollen and itchy. It was horrible. So I am not prepared to try a 3rd as the last one I tried left my eyes swollen and red for almost a week. Not a pretty sight specially when you can't wear any makeup to cover it! :(

Strange thing is that I can wear $5 drugstore brand mascara without any issues. Guess I get to save a bit of money!

A lot of people are sensitive to more red-based purples, if that makes you feel any better:).
I can't use their face wipes. At all. They hurt my face. That's pretty much it though.

I can't use the face wipes either! the smell gives me an instant headache. I used purple eyeshadow n eye liner a few days ago, they wore fine but once I removed it my eyes itched like crazy! ;( I am not sure which item bothered me so I will try each on its own to find the culprit. I think it's the pearlglide tho which sux because they are the only liners that don't smudge in me

If the pearlglide got in your waterline then that's probably the culprit. They're not really made to go in there. And I LOVE the smell of the facewipes, they're just not really so great for sensitive skin, even my trainers have told me that..

ya I only put it on the top lid usually, but this time I did my bottom lid, didn't go on the waterline intentionally but maybe it got some in there... I have very sensitive skin and can't wear perfume or body sprays ;( even scented lotion. kinda sux, it saves me money I guess but if someone is wearing perfume around me u get instant migraine ;( I get both sensitivities from my momma lol
