Pregnancy Safe Skincare and Makeup from MAC

Pregnancy Safe Skincare and Makeup from MAC

Pregnancy safe beauty 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. Also be sure to check out this post on pregnancy safe makeup.

Here you’ll find every pregnancy safe skincare and makeup product from MAC as of 4/19/2019. 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.

I have included makeup in this post as I am frequently asked about MAC makeup. I’ve gone through the MAC website, where they organize everything by finish, so for your favorite lipstick, look for the correct finish. Please refer to my post on pregnancy safe makeup, where I explain why you don’t need to worry about your mascara, powders, eyeliners, brow products, etc. I do not review these products.

Please note, it can take up to an hour to review the ingredient lists of each product. I review with my own list of pregnancy safe criteria. I obtain my ingredient lists from the brands and major retailers (typically Nordstrom and Sephora), and I review the US versions. Please do not ask me to re-review the same products over and over, I do not have the time to do so, and many people have been rude about this. For more brands, please head over to the list of pregnancy safe products.

    For items like “matte lipstick”, “satin lipstick” and “retro matte lipstick”, etc. does that mean that all colour options in these lipsticks are safe? (as opposed to the ones that pop us as the option when you click the item and are taken to the website)

    Thanks so much, you’re the best.

      That’s just one of the chemical sunscreens in the formulation, there are a couple (Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate is another). There are also salicylates, which is the aspirin family. It’s recommended to avoid all salicylates while pregnant, my OB included the entire class of chemicals on the “to avoid” list.

    Hi, Thanks for the comprehensive list. Do you also check if products contain lead? I know it’s not listed in the ingredients but I saw on FDA website there are lots of lipsticks containing lead e.g. MAC Amplified in a lot of shades are listed there, but here you have it in safe for pregnancy. Looking forward to your feedback. Thanks!

    • 9.4.19
      15mins said:

      I don’t include lead in my usual screening. Lead sounds scary but it is found everywhere in the environment around us and it does end up in products. As the FDA hasn’t pulled products from the market and we don’t say to avoid topical use, which is a much lower level of exposure than you’d get from drinking grape or apple juice for example.

    Hi. I know you mentioned that eyeliners are safe since they’re wax and skin doesn’t absorb. But i’m currently using liquid eyeliner; MAC’s Liquidlast Waterpoof Liner. Can you please review this product for me. Here are the ingredients. Thank you so much!

    Ingredients: Isododecane, Trimethylsiloxysilicate, Dimethicone, Calcium Aluminum Borosilicate, Disteardimonium Hectorite, Sorbitan Tristearate, Silica, Propylene Carbonate, Ascorbyl Palmitate, Tin Oxide, Caprylyl Glycol, Hexylene Glycol, Phytosteryl Isostearate, Hydrogenated Palm Kernel Glycerides, Hydrogenated Palm Glycerides, Pentaerythrityl Tetra-Di-T-Butyl Hydroxyhydrocinnamate, Phenoxyethanol, [+/- Mica, Titanium Dioxide (Ci 77891), Iron Oxides (Ci 77491), Iron Oxides (Ci 77492), Iron Oxides (Ci 77499), Bismuth Oxychloride (Ci 77163), Blue 1 Lake (Ci 42090), Carmine (Ci 75470), Chromium Hydroxide Green (Ci 77289), Chromium Oxide Greens (Ci 77288), Ferric Ammonium Ferrocyanide (Ci 77510), Ferric Ferrocyanide (Ci 77510), Manganese Violet (Ci 77742), Ultramarines (Ci 77007), Yellow 5 Lake (Ci 19140)]

    Hi Doctor

    When I open the link for Retro Matte Lipstick, the page shows one color that is Ruby Woo. Does this mean only this color is fine or other colors are safe too?

    My second question is that the link for “Pro Longwear Lip Pencil” doesn’t show any lip pencil on Mac page, only a general Mac page opens in that link. Why is it so? is it still safe?

    • 2.16.20
      15mins said:

      I screened all of the colors of the products, so all of the lipsticks, all of the lipliners, etc. They may have changed the link, but all of the pro longwear lip pencils are also ok. They just redirected the page.

It can be so confusing to navigate all of the brands & products on your own – I want to thank you for this wonderful gift you created.

    Hello doc. Many doc say glycolic acid and willow bark is safe in pregnancy. I am pretty confused,. Pls help…

    • 7.29.20
      Christine said:

      In the US willow bark is considered a salicylate and uniformly it is advised to avoid it. Glycolic acid is more controversial. You’re in India, so they may look at the data differently, but in the US neither are considered definitely safe. More info here: skincare ingredients to avoid during pregnancy
