Using different product together...

Post by ChristmasMarie on Thu Oct 11, 2012 12:42 am

Is it safe to use different brands of paints together. I know I have seen some posts about using one company for black lining and another for the base color. I just wanted to know how safe that is. I only use snazaroo and like it but was just curious if I could mix products together. I know the snazaroo website doesn't recommend it in their safety guide. Thanks

It's safe to mix brands. Mixing brands does not increase the chance a reaction will occur.

Snaz likes to pretend they are "more" safe than other brands, but that's a bit of baloney (anyone is free to illuminate me as to why this is wrong).

I use different brands together almost always, some are better for blending, some are better for lines and fine detail. I think some cakes are even put together with different brands.

Is there a ditto emoticon?
Well put...

We're using a cosmetic grade product (or at least I am) so there's very little to worry about as far as reaction. The Snaz warning stems from the loophole that using mixed products gives the manufacturer in the case of skin reaction, but it's more of a brand loyalty inspired ploy. Currently I'm wearing Smashbox primer, Mary Kay powder, Coastal Scents eye shadow, Maybeline eye liner and Milan lipstick. If there was a danger in mixing products, my face would be a walking timebomb! Shannon...you don't need to expound on that statement...fight the urge Red!

What Snazaroo likes to advertise is if someone were to have an allergic reaction, if various brands have been used, they (Snazaroo) the manufacturer will no be held liable. So the burden rests on the face painter w/o deep pocket recourse.

Yes, it is a matter of liability when you can't trace which thing it might have been. There could also be the argument of certain ingredients not being tested together and each company can't be responsible for knowing what other things you might be mixing in there.

I haven't heard of very many cases where mixing brands caused a problem, but I think it was Pashur told me about ONCE with ONE particular model, where he painted with two different brands individually, it was fine, but the few places where the two crossed over each other, she developed a rash. RARE, but not impossible on some skins.

Snazaroo can say they won't be held liable for reactions from their product, but the reality is that a statement like that in no way protects them. It sounds good, but it's not going to legally hold up. Note: I am not a lawyer and I am not providing legal advice, but I am aware of how the legal system works. A parent, painter, or insurance company could certainly go after them regardless of what combo of products were used.

if you can't prove that it was their product that caused the reaction, there's nothing to hold them liable

That would be the job of their attorney to prove that it wasn't their product and the ultimate owness on the prosecuting attorney to prove that it was...not the job of the face painter or Snaz, either way. That said, the liklihood of us ever finding ourselves in such a position is thankfully close to nil. =)

And if, say, you mixed wolfe and snaz and had a reaction, and someone was so inclined as to seek compensation for damages, their attorney would probably go after both companies - not disregard the opportunity entirely (assuming they thought it was worth the payout).

Again, though...liklihood? Nil. About as likely as someone is to sue both Revlon and Maybelline because you mixed their eyeshadows.....
