Ingredients from packaging:

Organic Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil Organic Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil Mica Organic Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax Organic Elaeis Guineensis (Palm) Oil Organic Elaeis Guineensis (Palm Kernel) Oil, Organic Cera Alba (Beeswax) Carthamus Tinctorius (Safflower) Seed Oil Chamomilia Recutita Matricaria (Chamomile) Flower Extract [+/-: Iron Oxides (CI 77499, CI 77491, & CI 77492), Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Carmine (CI 75470), Manganese Violet (CI 77742), Ultramarines (CI 77007)]

Directions from packaging:

1. Always start with a freshly sharpened, fine-tipped eyeliner pencil. 2. For round eyes, apply liner to the upper and lower lids without touching at the corner. 3. For almond eyes, apply liner only to the upper lids and lash line. 4. NATURAL: draw tiny strokes into the lash line. Begin above your iris, extending a bit past the outer corner of eye. The line should be straight across or slightly upward. Blend upward and outward. Smudge line lightly to soften the look. 5. SMOKY: hold the skin of your upper lid taut, apply eyeliner in short strokes from the inside corner of the eye moving outward. The middle of the line should be a bit thicker than the edges. Use the eyeliner s sponge tip to smudge the liner into the lash line. This creates a soft dramatic eye rather than a harshly defined eye. 6. DRAMATIC SMOKY: follow instructions for Smoky, then apply Mesmerize Eye Color. Apply the color over the entire upper lids and blend outward using only your fingers. Blend, blend, blend. Follow with another layer of the pencil and smudge into the lash line with the sponge tip. 7. INTENSE DRAMA: rim both upper and lower lids with the pencil and smudge with the sponge tip. For the bottom lid, simply pull the lid down and apply pencil onto the rim of the eye. Apply heavily on the bottom lid and then blink a few times to get color to the upper lash rim. Blend with the sponge tip. Follow up by drawing Mesmerize Eye Color on the outer-third of the bottom lash line and blend into the lash line.

Understanding scores

Cosmetics and personal care products are not required to be tested for safety before being allowed on the market. The Skin Deep® scoring system was designed to help the public understand whether a product is safe to use or whether it contains ingredients of concern.

Every product and ingredient in Skin Deep gets a two-part score – one for hazard and one for data availability. The safest products score well by both measures, with a low hazard rating and a fair or better data availability rating.

HOW WE DETERMINE SCORES

Hazard score

The Skin Deep ingredient hazard score, from 1 to 10, reflects known and suspected hazards linked to the ingredients. The EWG VERIFIED™ mark means a product meets EWG’s strictest criteria for transparency and health.

Score legend

Data availability

The Skin Deep data availability rating reflects the number of scientific studies about the product or ingredient in the published scientific literature.
