Pregnancy Safe Makeup from CoverGirl

Pregnancy Safe Makeup and Products from CoverGirl

Pregnancy safe beauty products can be super difficult and confusing. I have an entire guide devoted to what products are safe to use while pregnant including information on what ingredients to avoid while pregnant and a huge list of pregnancy safe skincare products. The list has gotten so large that I’ve decided to start listing brands in their own individual posts.

Here you’ll find pregnancy safe makeup from CoverGirl as of 11/8/2021. If it is not safe, I’ll tell you why. All of the products meet my pregnancy safe criteria. If they release a new product that is not listed here, please comment below and I will add it. Note I will link to every product directly to avoid confusion. You’ll know exactly which product I mean.

      It’s basically a mascara product, which is a film former that you don’t need to worry about. It’s fine for pregnancy and nursing, but I think you’re overthinking it.

    Hi! I have been using Covergirl Outlast All Day Ultimate Finish 3 in 1 for over half of my pregnancy because I didn’t think to look up if it could be harmful. I’m super nervous now that I caused some sort of harm to my baby. Can you please tell me how terrible this is or could be? Is it not safe to continue using? Any help is really appreciated, thanks in advance!

    Hello,

    You list CoverGirl Clean Liquid Foundation as being okay for pregnancy and nursing; however, it contains propylparaben and methylparaben. Is that right?

    Below site says it is NOT paraben free. Can you please clarify?

      You can pretty much find info out there about avoiding everything possible, much of which isn’t based on much. Parabens are NOT considered ingredients to avoid by the medical community, the actual evidence doesn’t support this. My list of ingredients that I screen out is very conservative and it’s here: skincare ingredients to avoid during pregnancy

    Hi Doctor, I saw on your “Pregnancy Safe Facial Sunscreens, BB and CC Creams”
    page that the CoverGirl Clean Matte BB Cream is considered a safe option for pregnancy. The ingredient list doesn’t seem to have any physical sunscreen in it, other than “May Contain: Titanium Dioxide”. I am wondering if this is just a regular BB cream that doesn’t have spf?
