Eyeshadow from China...could it cause allergies??

About 1 month ago I started suffering from weakness/fatique/heavy limbs/loss of appetite.

So I went to my doctor and she did a standard blood test panel and one of the tests (don't remember the name but I think it started with an E) showed I was allergic to something.

Funny thing is I haven't been having any allergy symptoms at all other than what I described above, but she still insisted it shows I am allergic to something.

Anyway, I still am not myself and I am getting more depressed each day over this, my whole life has changed.

Anyway about 3 weeks prior to this I started using an eyeshadow I bought off of ebay from China. Hubby warned me about using this product from the start because who knows what is in it. So now he thinks that is my issue and maybe my body is reacting as if it is being poisoned by some unknown toxic from this eyeshadow.

Sounds like a stretch to me....but could it be????

I am also hypothyroid and am being treated for that, that is what doc thinks the issue is.

Anything is possible. Do a search on the ingredient list and see what comes up. If there is no ingredient list...maybe try not using it for a few weeks and see what happens. Or toss it and start over with a familiar product.

Here are the ingredients....Vaneline, Talcum, Silicon, Stearic Acid Zine, Phosphor Powder, Anti-Oxidant, Perfume.

I definately am going to stop wearing it and see what happens.

I would have brushed this idea off if it weren't for the blood test showing I have some kind of allergy.

Talc is a red flag. It's definitely an allergen, but it's also a toxin, and possibly a carcinogen, as it's closely related to asbestos.
