Artfire, Again-Followup

After this posting the Artfire listings were edited to add ingredients. It should be noted, however, that the ingredients listing for Suess Gold, which was originally (and still is) described as 100% cosmetic glitter now has the same exact ingredients listed as the Carnival Collection, and has the "may contain" statement. In addition to the fact that the listing description and the ingredients listed are diametrically opposed to one another, the fullsize pigment must meet FDA requirements for ingredients listing:
The ingredients must be listed in descending order of predominance.
 "May contain" does not appear to meet these guidelines.

All are exactly the same.

It was understood that GS committed going forward to write down the exact ingredients in all pigments and posting them so that consumers would be aware of what they were purchasing. One catch all listing of ingredients that might have been used does not meet that commitment.


  1. Yea, let's just write them ALL down and that way we have covered the bases.

    What a twit.

  2. Absolutely no fillers! Y'know, except for Bismuth which will cause itching and may lead to Mica sensitivity over time. :D

  3. After what I've learned about Bismuth I wouldn't purchase any cosmetics that contains it. Also, this ingredient list is so broad I'm inclined to believe it's not accurate. It is similar to a restaurant listing every food a grocery sells as the ingredients in their entree.

  4. Cut & Copy Paste, Cut & Copy Paste, Cut & Copy Paste. It just shows she still doesn't give a damn about customers to even go through and list ACTUAL ingredients, not just copy and paste guesses. That ingredient list was probably yoinked off of something else too.
    Might as well "May contain: BS"
