from @beauty.investigator - For clarification, I want to make this clear, because I see a lot of people are misinformed about what is going on, from both sides:
1) This isn't "just a handful of people" this is happening to. One trip to Twitter will prove you wrong, as would my inbox. It's actually over 30 known cases now last time I checked, and a lot of them are either comments people left on the Lime Crime page, or they asked me not to share their stuff.
2) It's not mold, it's rust. This is again proven to be false when you see the rust test conducted by the first person who submitted their faulty superfoils to me. Is it possible it could be mold as well? Sure, but not likely.
3) The people who have these faulty pans did not use water on their superfoils to cause this type of reaction. Many of them were brand new and never used. I know this is true since someone I personally know has a foil and NEVER allows her makeup to come in contact with water. The compact has a steamy mirror too, just as others claimed with theirs, and this was only used once!
4) more to add to #3. There is no water in their formula, as they claimed there is, and rust is not safe for the eye area or any body part for that matter! Glycerin is in the formula, which is a humectant. Humectants draw water from the air and hold onto it. Tin pans rust when in the presence of this substance. Take a look at the glitter injections fiasco from several months ago. She was originally using tin pans, and they are not meant to store moist makeup like cream shadows, pressed glitters or in this case.... Superfoils.
5) I have been in contact with professionals who actually create cosmetics, and actually KNOW their stuff and they all concur: It's rust, not mold, and is dangerous. -
