There’s allegedly a lawsuit against Huda Beauty related to her Neon Obsessions Eyeshadow Palettes. Did I see that one coming? Yes! It’s always been a great concern of me that these were advertised as being an eyeshadow palette versus a pressed pigment palette. When it comes to pressed pigments and avoiding the FDA there are plenty of loop holes and brands have exploited them quite well in the last two year.
Interestingly enough this Summer there are plenty of dupes popping up!
Don’t let lawsuits scare you guys! Don’t be shy do more Huda Beauty Eyeshadow Palette dupes!
Makeup Revolution Viva Neon Palette ($9) are a new selection of 9-pan eyeshadow palettes that are very, very similar to the Neon Obsession Eyesahdow Palette launch! I mean, just look at them! The color range, the packaging, it all screams Huda (palettes pictured above) but hey, Makeup Revolution has never been shy about doing copying and creating dupes of a variety of popular brands right? Sadly, these do have certain dyes that are not FDA approved such as Red 40. Makeup Revolution is a British brand where Red 40 isn’t on the most wanted list for being unsafe for eyes but I still do wonder if they have printed any warning on the back of the palette about safety precautions when using on eyes!
Lottie London, another British brand, has two new Laila Loves Neon Palettes which have nine shades each. Again, I’m seeing Yellow 5 in the ingredients list here which is not FDA approved either.
But take a closer look….! Neither palette sayings “eyeshadow palette”! They are merely labeled as “palette”! Also, take note that the advertising says nothing about using them on your eyes merely that they contain a mix of colorful neon shades in matte, shimmer, and sparkle finishes.
Are you over the misleading palette trend?
Or are you fine using shades that aren’t eye safe?
I don’t really have sensitive eyes and never had an issue using different dyes on my eyes aside from the occasionally stained lid! However, I still feel very passionately about the way certain items are marketed and I’d like more transparency with these products.
