Pregnancy Safe Skincare and Makeup from MAC

Pregnancy Safe Skincare and Makeup from MAC

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.

Here you’ll find pregnancy safe products from MAC as of 2/3/2022. If it is not safe, I’ll tell you why. All of the products meet my pregnancy safe criteria. Note I will link to every product directly to avoid confusion. You’ll know exactly which product I mean.

Don’t See Your Product? Read This Before You Ask About It…

Please read the Pregnancy Beauty Guide intro first, where you will learn which products you actually need to worry about (spoiler alert, you don’t need to worry about all makeup or hair products). I will not review products that fall into the “don’t worry about it” categories. If you want to ask about a specific product, I require that you follow these guidelines for asking about pregnancy/nursing safety. You can also learn more about how to use these pregnancy safety lists. I will delete questions that don’t follow the guidelines or are rude.

    Hi!

    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!

    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.

    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

    Hey! Sorry if this is a silly question but… you’ve really helpfully advised that my MAC lipsticks are safe. However, I’ve had a few of them for a couple of years now (4-5) and they don’t smell bad, but admittedly I’ve never properly sanitised them. I’ve now scraped the top layer off and dipped them in rubbing alcohol… will they now be safe to use in pregnancy or should I throw them out? Does all of the rubbing alcohol evaporate fully?

    • 2.15.21
      Christine said:

      The rubbing alcohol will evaporate. In theory those things are only “good” for a set period of time, and that varies depending on your source. But if they smell ok I personally would feel ok using it.

    Hello, I’ve been wanting to ask as of some sites suggest to avoid BHT and yet at this site its suggest as safe. So which is it? example i own nivea watermelon/blackberry lip balm.
    Also i want to ask about alumina and SLS. I know aluminum should be avoided in antiperspirants and of shampoo, well we dont have here a shampoo without sls or im not finding one. Is it still okay to use shampoo with sls while pregnant?
    Thank you <3
