What kind is it? Is it a really fancy one, or from a department store? To check, try a different type of mascara (I'd go a cheapy). It could just be time for a newy. Try using it without any other makeup near your eyes, too, to check that it's not something else that's getting in your eyes. :kopfkratz: Let us know.

Hmm there could be a particular ingredient in that particular brand that irritates your eyes.

I think all the mascaras I've tried have made my eyes itch and/or water... even Almay's which i think is supposed to be ophthalmologist tested. I know they advertise that it's hypoallergenic.

Maybe you should try a different brand. I've tried alot of different mascara brands [high and low end] and found I was allergic only to Maybellines.

I HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM! I've learned that REGULAR MASCARA of any kind, no lengthening or whatever... just plain old colored mascara, usually in a lighter color than the skin or CLEAR MASCARA OR CLEAR BROW GEL.... will not irritate the eyes. I love CoverGirl's clear mascara because the brush is exactly like the brush of the regular mascaras.... It works great and i'm not rubbing it off all day.

I know it's possible to be allergic to mascara -- I knew someone who was and it was really a bummer for her. That said, I couldn't say what it was about it that made her have an allergic reaction to it -- I know she'd tried several different kinds. Like others have said it's probably an ingredient in it, but it might be one necessary to mascara. Perhaps you could ask your dermatologist to check out the ingredients?

I just purchased the Double Extend and it's making my eyes itch. I didn't think anything about it until I talked to my mother and she had the same problem with that mascara :( There are also several cheap lipsticks that break me out in tiny blisters, too! I would love to know which ingredient I should be avoiding so I don't breakout or itch! LOL

Hope you find your perfect mascara soon ;)

That sounds like an allergic reaction to me... Maybe get a formula with less stuff in it and no promises. Or opt for clear.

It would suck that you have bald lashes because of an allergic rxn...

Many times even if you have never been allergeric you can develope allergies. Google mascara supreme hypo allergenic,
or mascara for sensitive eyes. Then you can shop around a bit.
