    Hi there~
    I love your site and hope to peruse it in depth at a later time. Meanwhile though, for the last year or so, I seem to have developed some kind of allergy(?) to my
    lip liners? At first it was only Lancome liners I could not wear, but now even my staple MAC is deserting me! Along my liner line, my lips get extremely chapped
    and flaky. Lipsticks/glosses don’t seem to be a problem. I would love any recommendations you might have on a liner that is not likely to chap me — I really
    NEED to wear liner along with my color (p.s. I am blonde, fair and dry skinned and just turned 40. I do a LOT of moisturizing, including lip treatment, currently by Sisely.) Thanks!

  2. Hi Julie. Are you able to get an ingredient list for any of your liners? I’m wondering if they contain bismuth or perhaps some other potential irritant. I think I have some MAC ingredient lists around, so I’ll look into it more and post a more detailed comment tomorrow. In the meantime, if you have ingredient lists for any of them post them in a comment and I’ll take a look. If we can pinpoint a problem ingredient, then we might be able to find a liner that doesn’t contain it.

    One thing that comes to mind is that some of the more creamy liners, like the Nars or Sonia Kashuk lip crayons might not contain some of the powder type ingredients that cause irritation in some people. But I need to do some looking into their ingredients.

  3. Julie: I looked into things more, and I think bismuth is definitely the likely suspect. Most lip liners have that as an ingredient and it is known to cause itchiness and flaky skin in some people. It could be a different ingredient bothering you, but that is the biggest suspect. Anyway, look for natural lip liners or check ingredients for ones without bismuth. Note that other cosmetics also contain bismuth, including many mineral makeups that claim to be “pure” or “natural.”

    I haven’t tried these, but Carefree Beauty makes a bunch of lip products, including liners, that are organic and do not contain bismuth or other irritants. Check them out here: http://www.carefreebeauty.eu/lips

    Another one you might look at is Greenfeet’s lip liner here: http://www.greenfeet.com/ItemMatrix.asp?GroupCode=7513-04333&MatrixType=1

    I hope this helps!
