  • I did. I use MaryKay now, but before I was just buying whatever from the store. once I bought this new makeup that was metallic and stuff and immediately my eye started itching and I rubbed it which spread the makeup around and then it swelled up, but I never started coughing. Something in the makeup was bothering you. Are you pregnant, because you can develop allergies to things when you're pregnant that never bothered you before. I couldn't use anything with cocoa butter in it. Still can't.
