Well. I figured out the other day that I'm allergic to red dye... and almost all my makeup has red dye in it. I found an eyeliner, mascara, and foundation I know I can use that I had. But, all the MAC eyeshadows that I have have red dye in them, even if they are very neutral. Enough said. Does anyone know of eyeshadows that are red-dye-free? (Other names are Carmine/Crimson Lake/Red)

100% Pure Cosmetics (www.100percentpure.com) is one of the best vegan brands around and every product is free of dyes. I see a lot of companies such as Tarte, who make great organic products (and I will be the first to admit, I am a fan), but some of their products still possess red dyes.

Your best bet is to switch to mineral makeup if you're allergic to red dye. Do you know WHICH red dye you're allergic to or are you allergic to ALL red dye? Have you had a skin test to see if you are indeed allergic to red dye?

I'm allergic to most blue eyeshadows but I find if I put a liquid foundation on my eyes before the shadow it doesn't irritate my skin. Don't know if that would work for you but worth a try =)

I recently found out that I am allergic to red dye in eye makeup.  They have recommended me to use greens, grays, etc.I..and it has gotten rid of my problem that I have had for over 20+ years ...
