Water/Aqua/Eau, Mica, Polyurethane-2, Alcohol, [+/-: Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI77492, CI77499), Red 40 (CI16035), Yellow 5 (CI77288)], Polyethylene Terephthalate, Glyceryl Stearate, Glycerin, Butylene Glycol.

Directions from packaging:

Use alone for a highly pigmented eye, lip or cheek. Layer beneath Metals or Micro Metals for an uber rich color payoff and lots of dimensionality. Mix colors to create your own custom shades. Layer with ColorFix Glaze for a glossy finish. Mix in complexion products to adjust shades or to create a waterproof finish. Use as a waterproof base for concealers. This high-performance formula dries rapidly and should be blended quickly. Plays well with wax, silicone and oil-based products.

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.
