Eye Make-Up Allergies

I tried Physician's Formula as recommended and I am allergic to it. My eyes start tearing from it and my lid gets red and puffy. Are there any other non-allergenic brands that I could try?

    I think Almay is although I can not use their eyeliner. It seems to aggravate me. But most of their other stuff does ok for me. I think Clinque is supposed to be too but most all their stuff aggravates me too. I guess that isn't much help, huh?

    I use Loreal eyeshadow and do ok with that.

    What were you using? Mascara? Eye shadow? Eye liner? Have you tried products with less chemicals and more natural ingredients? (Look out for anything that has triethanolamine. I don't really know what it is, but I understand this can cause some serious reactions.)

    I struggle with all kinds of allergies, so I'm searching for good hypo-allergenic products, too. So, far, I like Bare Escentuals best.

    If you do find something great, please share! :blob5:
