Are Neon Eyeshadows Actually Safe For The Eyes?
While beauty industry controversies tend to circulate around issues of representation or companies being tone-deaf which can often be debatable and not as clear cut, issues regarding safety tend to be a lot more black and white. Not literally though. In fact, this issue is all about the safety of bright, vivid neon eyeshadows. Now, it all started when beauty industry watchdog Instagram account Estee Laundry did a post of neon palettes from beauty brands such as Huda Beauty, Kylie Cosmetics and a handful of other brands on 7 July 2019. They asked their 77,000 followers what they thought about brands not being clear about how these palettes are not “intended for use on the eyes”, starting off a debate with surprisingly two very opposing camps.
