Allergic to eyeliner

I am allergic to every eyeliner ive ever used. My eyes get red and itchy a few hours after applying eyeliner. I was wondering if anybody knows of any eyeliner that doesnt irritate for sensitive skin?

A lot of the pencils are made in Germany and there are only a few major companies that supply most of the pencils for all the brands.  With that being said, I would use a damp angle eye brush or flat push eyeliner brush and use powder to line your eyes.  NARS powders work well wet, and I'm sure others do too (maybe you have one you can try to line your eyes with).


I have contact allergies too so I know how 'hypo-allergenic' doesn't mean a whole lot.

One more eyeliner that I wanted to add to the list I gave you is the Buxom Insider Eyeliner which comes in lots of colors, is long-wearing, and is so gentle you can apply it to the inner rims of your eyes.  You can find this pencil at:

Make Up For Ever's Aqua Cream Eyeliner is made to not irritate sensitive eyes and it comes is a lot of gorgeous colors which you can find at:

Also, Make Up For Ever's Kohl Pencil is specfically designed for the sensitive and thin skin surrounding and inside the eye and is particularly gentle.  You can take a look at it here:

Another option is Bare Escentuals Bare Minerals Shadow Liner which is a smudge-proof and water-resistant powder eyeliner that is long lasting and is good for sensitive eyes.  You can find it at:
