YAY!! Non-Irritating Eye Makeup

I thought I was doomed as far as eye makeup is concerned. Seems that EVERYTHING I buy ends up irritating the tar out of my eyes! Liners and shadows, in particular. And it didn't matter if I paid a lot or a little for them.

About 2 weeks ago I picked up some Physician's Formula liners (3 to a pack, for blue eyes - a black, a lovely bronzy brown, and a great blue - cross between a cobalt and navy). LOVE them and they do not irritate my eyes AT ALL. Have worn them everyday since buying. AND they don't budge all day.

Last week I got the shadow trio and YAY it's been great, too, no itching or burning or making my eyes water. Very comfortable.

I decided to give these a try as I have been using the PF tinted moisturizer, the concealer AND the mineral wear talc free correcting powder. I LOVE it all, my skin looks great. I was using LG's balance n brighten but I've thrown it over for the PF correcting powder.

Just thought I'd post for anyone who may have sensitive eye issues and are looking for products they can wear. I know that everyone is different, but I've been through so many brands (and several of them all "natural" that irritate me).

I will say that my skin is a little too shiny with just the tinted moisturizer on it - the correcting powder, lightly applied, gives me a nice glowy finish, just short of being matte (I don't care for a matte finish, but you could probably get it with a heavier application).

I'll be trying more of the PF products in the future!

Thanks for posting this. I am going to try it. Pencil liners have been irritating my eyes lately but if I go without it everyone tells me how tired I look. Hmph. Thanks again and I have a rewards coupon at Ulta to boot!

I must have 300 pencils that I can't use because of irritation.

The PF trio (I think they're called Shimmer on the box - the bronzy/brown one does have a bit of shimmer to it which I really ike but the others don't seem shimmery to me, if they are it's very subtle) come in various color combos according to eye color.

Good luck with them!

Thanks for the information. I have been looking for a eyeliner that doesn't bother my eyes so I will definitely try this.

I love PF matte shadows!

I think my 57 year old eyes look better without shimmer.

I gave up on eyeliner but think I will try these, thanks for posting!

I was ready to give up on eyeliner, too.

I hope you love them!

Thanks for the eye makeup review. I am trying to replace my Laura Geller Bal n B with PF because it's less expensive and doesn't cut into the budget as much, but the LG TSV's blow up my plan sometimes.
