Delicate Flower

Now I get to add something else to the list of things I'm allergic to . . . Brazil nuts, red ant bites and now . . . eye makeup.
This is exactly what happened to my skin!  Puffy red skin - not good on ones face - that goes a little flaky later.

I don't know which product is the culprit as I use a number of things . . .  mascara, eyeliner, eyeshadow, Touche eclait . . . .please don't let it be the touche eclait! 

It all has to go!  I will reintroduce items back one at a time after the skin has returned to normal. I have to stop wearing all of it for a while until my red puffy eyelids feel better.   Then get hypo-allergenic stuff to replace the makeup that I can no longer wear.

Oh bad luck, that looks very sore. Similar happened to me at the beginning of the year, my eyelids actually cracked and bled. It turned out that it was caused by medication, Naproxen an anti-inflammatory.

Allergic reaction to the vulcanized rubber in eyeshadow applicators? Switch to Q-Tips, and wet for more intense application.

Did you ever find out what did it? I'm having the same reaction now. Very painful. How long did it take to go away? Any helpful soothing tips?

It was liquid eye liner that was the culprit. I just had to stop using it and go back to using an eye pencil.

After I stopped using all my eyemakeup the bad one was the eyeliner, which I never had a problem with before. Hopefully this red/purple rash and swelling will go away soon. Guess I'll try some hypoallergenic next time.
