Is Morphe Makeup "Inherently Dangerous"?

I am sad to announce that Morphe Makeup is facing a class action lawsuit. According to an article by Erin Shank ( The lawsuit alleges that ingredients not safe for the eye area but are being marketed for use in the eye area. Phrases being used to describe the makeup are "unsuitable and [FDA] unapproved", "severe eye irritation" and even scarier "inherently dangerous".

But worse are the allegations that Morphe was intentionally deceptive with its marketing. It's worse because that means I can't trust them. Shank's article has me convinced that Morphe knew the dangers of certain ingredients. Morphe used words that wouldn't be used unless intentionally trying to deceive their customers. Calling it "artistry palettes” or “pressed pigments" instead of eyeshadow. Eyeshadow is the wording used when the product is safe to use around the eyes. But, Morphe is clearly marketing the same products as eyeshadow in the photos below.

I will be keeping an eye out to see how Morphe handles this situation. But right now I am wary of trusting this company.

And my friends, the list of problematic makeup is very long. So, if you have these makeup products you should consider not using them. And if you still want to use them definitely avoid the eye area because they may contain dangerous color additives. (I want your opinion at the end)
