I don't know how much you're willing to spend on mascara, but in my case, I use Blinc's mascara. I don't really have sensitive eyes, but I have really sensitive skin. What attracted me to Blinc was that it won the 2008 Best of Sephora award, and that its ingredients are supposed to be non-irritating. I didn't want any problems when I put on mascara because I have enough with going through different foundations haha. I know it's a lot to pay for mascara, but this stuff literally stays on all day long :)

Bourjois khol liners, Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliners. That's what i use personally.

 

Stay away from Bourjois mascaras, crap ! L'Oreal voluminous is okay. I like Clinique's mascaras, YSL False Lashes for high end. You can also try organic mascaras, they are much softer on the eye, do you Couleur Caramel or Dr Hauschka?

Yeah, I second the Urban Decay 24/7. I've gotten some really bad reactions to supposedly "hypoallergenic" Clinique. So I don't know, that's about the only high-end brand I exclusively stay away from haha

I heard the new Physician's Formula mascara is great for sensitive eyes, it's the one that looks like a big green leaf (not the one with a little leaf on top, that one is crap). It's all organic and has been getting great reviews on so many blogs. Nouveau Cheap is one of my favorite blogs and here is G's review: http://nouveaucheap.blogspot.com/2011/02/review-physicians-formula-organic-wear.html

 

She also recommends Physician's Formula for their new pencil eyeliners: http://nouveaucheap.blogspot.com/2011/01/review-physicians-formula-shimmer.html

 

Now Physician's Formula tends to be kind of high priced for a drug store brand, but right here at Makeup Talk you can get a $5 off coupon for any product! (Print out several!) http://www.makeuptalk.com/forum/thread/116787/physicians-formula-sale-at-cvs

 

Now the story goes that there was this doctor whose wife was so sensitive to makeup she couldn't find any brand that she could wear, so this doctor decided to create his own cosmetics for sensitive women like his wife, that's the story behind Physician's Formula!

No need for mascara or even eyeliner!

 

You can try eyelash extensions at $60 only. You get already get your mascara and liner in one. And have it for 2 months. I have mine for the past 2 years now and I dont have any regrets to trying it. You can call Yvette and her team at 4164108152 to book your consultation and appointment or check their website for actual photos. www.xtremelashcanada.com

i suggest you to try products with less harsh chemicals, some natural products--- 100% pure make their mascaras and eye liners out of fruit pigment.

Clinique creamshapers & mascaras.

I love the Lancôme Ôscillation Intensity Mascara . It makes my lashes thick and does not smudge.

My SIL was complaining about her sensitive eyes (allergies, constantly watering etc).  I recommended Laura Geller's I-Care eyeliner duo (I have 3 of the colors myself) and she loves them.  No more watery, itchy eyes.  Also, what worked great for her was Almay One Coat Nourishing Mascara.

My eyes have became very sensitive in the past couple of years. I used Great Lash for years and switched to Physicians Formula and I still have the same irritations, especially Red Eye! I guess all mascara work differently on each person. One I haven't tried, but just bought online is OcuSoft Mascara. All reviews were great and I'm hoping the same for myself. It's cheap too!

I get eye stys a lot but I haven't in a couple years and I use Maybelline's Great Lash Mascara.

post #16 of 26

i have sensative eyes too and I use MAC's Technakohl eyeline with no problem and loreal's beauty tubes mascara also.

post #17 of 26

Try Clinique High Impact mascara and MAC Smolder. Avoid any eye pencils/ khols with shimmer, better use wet eyeshadows.

post #18 of 26

I spent ages searching for a nice mascara for my sensitve eyes. I found one that's water resistant so it stays on better and doesn't smudge, with camomile and organic aloe vera in it. I got it from a website called 'nemki health'.

Clinique mascara is good for sensitive eyes, in my experience. It's an option for you if the L'Oreal Lash Out doesn't work out.  :)

I'm still looking for eyeliner and mascara for my very sensitive eyes that are allergic to any eyeliner I have used.  Eyeliner seems to cause problems with my eyelashes.  Anybody have any new suggestions?

Have you tried anything thats organic/all-natural? It may be chemicals in certain products that are causing the reactions. You should also be looking for something that's hypo-allergenic, and something that is super smudge proof so it's less likely to run down into your eyes. Vapour Organics makes a really good eyeliner pencil, great pigment and smooth application. blinc's liners are also great, those puppies won't budge once you put them on. They have liquid and now pencils available. blinc's mascara is also great, and again, that stuff won't budge when you put it on, and it's super waterproof, cry-proof, nap-proof.....it holds up for sure, which means its less likely to run into your eyes at some point while wearing it. With eyeliners, try to avoid putting it on your waterline until you find one that doesn't irritate your eyes at all.

I have allergic conjunctivitis so constantly an issue. I use Tarte lights, camera & Korres liner that I don't think they make anymore, a pencil. I'm allergic to all the waterproof gels,etc.
post #23 of 26
And I'm leery of organic as I'm afraid they don't have the chemicals to keep it bacteria free. Not sure on it but I do buy organic skin care.
post #24 of 26

I have sensitive skin as well.

 

Tarte, Urban Decay and Too Faced don't make me have a reaction. I've used a lot of their products. 

 

I've only had one allergic reaction to Physcians Formula mascara, and it was the mascara mentioned here as someone above mentioned http://nouveaucheap.blogspot.com/2011/02/review-physicians-formula-organic-wear.html My eyes itched whenever I used it. I've tried the one that has a leaf top only, and I had no reaction to it and liked it. I haven't used the pink bottle that they make yet. I haven't had a reaction to any other of their products.

 

Eco Bella is another great brand. They try to use limited ingredients in their products. 

 

Maybellines products give me reactions whether it's lip or eye products. I've switched to cruelty free makeup since then, and to me it seems that I'm having less reaction to makeup. Maybe the giant corporations that sell world wide are willing to use more questionable ingredients.

I have been using Almay lately. I have severe problems with eye makeup allergies developing. My eyes water and burn, then the mascara ends up on my face in stead of my eyelashes, In a short amount of time! It works OK. I LOVE other mascaras more with their length, volume, and separation and everything else! I don't even wear mascara lot of the times now and I think people are just about used to me, no matter how bad I look! LOL

Clinique was my brand for nearly 30 years, then they changed the formula on most products I use.  Now I can't use Clinique because they don't have as good of quality in there products as before.
