Not all products are created equal and not all makeup products are made in the USA either. Just because one product from a line is made in America doesn’t mean that the entire line of products is made there. So the rule of thumb is even if you have heard that the beauty line is “made in the USA” make sure to check the label to ensure that you are buying locally. Since this can be a daunting task we’ve scoured the makeup shelves and have come up with a quick list of the top eye makeup products made in the USA, from mascara to eyeshadow and more.
We all love our mascara, but what if you could get a natural ingredient mascara that’s also made in the USA? Christopher Drummond Beauty offers just that, and then some. Infused with vitamins A, C and E, as well as seaweed proteins and algae extract Christopher’s mascara gives your lashes a smudge-proof, long wearing and water-resistant American made experience.
Even though Maybelline has released multiple versions of their Volum’ Express mascara line my all-time favorite is their Colossal formula. If the affordable price, super thickening and lengthening formula, and easy wash-away formula wasn’t enough then how about knowing that it’s also made in the USA? And who says a girl can’t have it all?
L’Oreal makes pulling off a smokey eye as easy as pie, especially with their Wear Infinite Studio Secrets Eye Shadow Quad. Each one of the four shadows in the palette is placed together for perfect harmony, allowing for a quick and easy blend that’s also crease-proof and fade-resistant. The affordable price of under $8 is a steal, and the bonus of having it made in the USA will make you feel proud while wearing it.
Clinique is a great line to go-to for your department store fix without breaking the bank. Their Color Surge Single Shadows are the perfect product for a single look, or to add to your existing eyeshadows. I’ve always loved their Color Surge shadows, and knowing that they are made in the USA makes me love them more. Oh, and did you know that the Color Surge line comes in a variety of shades, textures, and multi-colored palettes?
Liquid eyeliner is one of the go-to products for many fab eye looks including a colored smokey eye, cat eye, and whatever else you can dream up. Even though many of us may be intimidated by a liquid eyeliner Almay makes application super-fast and super easy, and affordable. The double bonus is that it’s also water-resistant so it will stay in place for up to 16-hours, and it’s made right here in the USA.
Nothing can ruin a great eye look faster than tired-looking or wrinkled eyes. So what’s a girl to do when 3 o’clock hits and you’ve run out of energy, and it’s showing through your under eye area? Reach for the fix-all that I refuse to leave the house without. Ooh La Lift has light reflectors that instantly give your tired eyes a boost while also giving you the slight lift that you need in order to keep you looking professional. The double bonus is that you can use it right over your existing makeup without ruining your work, and it’s also made in the USA.
