Arbonne Recalled Its Liquid Eyeliners After Bacteria Was Found in Them
When you’re putting makeup near your eyes, it’s super important to know the formulas are safe and clean. (You probably know this already, but eyes are particularly prone to infection and long-term infections can have serious repercussions.)
Arbonne recalled its liquid eyeliners voluntarily after discovering bacterial contamination in two products. According to Womens Wear Daily, the Food and Drug Administration has announced that Arbonne recalled 14,837 units of It’s a Fine Line Liquid Eyeliner in black and 3,818 units of the same formula in brown.

In a statement from the brand provided to Allure, Arbonne, a California-based direct sales cosmetics company, said that even though it has recalled its liquid eyeliners, there has “been no reports of any injury relating to the product.” Furthermore, if you’re a huge Arbonne fan, you don’t have to worry about other products from the brand being contaminated. “We initiated this voluntary recall when our third party manufacturer informed us that standard safety testing of our most recent order of goods revealed the presence of a common type of bacteria,” the company said. “While all products made prior to this date passed safety testing, out of an abundance of caution and due to our high quality standards, we are recalling all liquid eye liners. To our knowledge, the recall is isolated to the liquid eyeliner and no other products are affected.”
