Here's some more info on Glittersniffer. Not only is her stuff not eye safe (which she states on her etsy site) but it turns out she's not using all cosmetic dyes. She's using some dyes made for candles so technically these aren't safe to use anywhere on your face.http://www.aijuswhanakno.com/2010/06/gl ... ction.html
GlitterSniffer: A Retraction.
I no longer can say that I recommend GlitterSniffer Cosmetics. Not more than 4 hours ago, I posted my experience with GSC, and how happy I was with the order, despite Phyrra's experience.
Thanks to the help of a good friend, I found out that I was sold pigments that were not approve for COSMETIC use. I knew when I originally purchased these pigments that they were not eye safe. I figured I could take the risk, since I assumed they were still cosmetically approved.
Well, I was wrong. At least four of the pigments that I wasted my money on are SOAP DYES. Pretty much nothing I was sold was cosmetically approved. That means that I would be forced to use them in some kind of liquid media only (nail polish, hair gel, soap, lotion, candle wax, etc.) Why do I say that I wasted my money? I paid $30 for these pigments. ONE FREAKING SAMPLE, OF ANYTHING, FROM TKB TRADING COMPANY, IS $1.50. WHAT IS THAT MULTIPLIED BY 7? $10.50. ONE THIRD OF THE PRICE THAT I PAID. These are basically pigments that you can buy from any cosmetic wholesale company.
These pigments are NOT safe to put anywhere on your face, let alone your eyes. My friend also brought up a very good point. What if it got on my son? Or worse, in his mouth? Food for thought. Needless to say, it made me very angry. That thought never even crossed my mind.
