scarlettbegonias87:  Nope. Hypoallergenic is not a valid term when it comes to cosmetics, but it works wonders for Almay’s advertising. Clinique uses the term “Allergy tested”. That doesn’t mean that 100% of people tested had no allergic reaction. 

Do a little detective work and try to find out which ingredients don’t agree with you. Is it a certain fragrance, dye, preservative, etc…? Compare your “safe makeup” to the ones that cause a reaction and see what the difference is in the ingredient list. Also be aware that just because a cosmetic brand is “high end” doesn’t mean it contains no irritants.

I have a lot of skin allergies myself! I typically stick with vegan makeup like http://www.shirocosmetics.com I seem to have good luck with them compared to the more mainstream stuff. And no I am not actually vegan but the legitimate vegan make up stores use ingredients that do not make me flare up.
