Make Up For Ever Fluo Night

As you know, I love blinky things. I love glow in the dark things. I love blacklights, led poi, and fun makeup. Make Up For Ever just released a new product called Fluo Night. Fluo Night is available from Sephora for $31 for .10 oz.

The ingredients are:
Polyester-3, Disodium Distyrylbiphenyl Disulfonate, [+/- CI 42090 (Blue 1, Blue 1 Lake), CI 45410 (Red 28), CI 45350 (Yellow 7), CI 45370 (Orange 5), CI 45380 (Red 21), CI 45380 (Red 22), CI 77289 (Chromium Hydroxide Green)].

It comes in one transparent shade that can be mixed with makeup products you already own.

What do you think of Fluo Night? Are you excited by the product?



The above text is from the FDA’s website. I wish I’d read the ingredients listing closer last night. red 21 and 22 aren’t approved for use near the eyes.

So rather than being excited by MUFE’s Fluo Night, I’m disappointed. :( I won’t be purchasing.

      YES!!!!!! This looks so awesome!

      • Phyrra

        Sadly, after double checking the ingredients I don’t think it would be good to put near eyes :(

      What an amazing idea! I can’t say that I’d personally have that much occasion to wear it, but I’d purposely go places to wear it >:D

      • Phyrra

        It’s a great idea, but it doesn’t appear to be safe to use near eyes :(

      What an awesome idea!

      • Phyrra

        Yeah, but upon reading the ingredients closer, some of them are not approved for use near the eyes :(

    • Spooki

      Don’t like that they show it used on lips when chromium hydroxide green is not approved for that use. If I remember correctly polyester-3 isn’t eye safe either.

      I don’t think I will be purchasing or using this product.

      • Phyrra

        I won’t, either, now that I see that the Red 21 and Red 22 aren’t for use near the eyes.

      Ugh, I’m on the fence. I think it’s a cool idea, but like Spooki mentioned, I don’t think it’s actually cosmetic safe :(

      • Phyrra

        Yeah I wish I’d checked the ingredients last night. Red 21 and Red 22 aren’t approved for use near the eyes.

        I’m disappointed and won’t be picking it up either :(

    • Becca

      Some of the ingredients, as mentioned above, are not generally used for the purposes they’re being shown in, because they are not FDA-approved for those uses, so I do believe I’ll pass on this. Would be fun for a Halloween party though :)

      • Phyrra

        I’m disappointed. After checking the ingredients closer, I see that Red 21 and 22 aren’t for use near the eyes.

      I wonder if it would work in nail polish. It would be pretty cool to franken your own glow in the dark polish. It’d sure beat trying to track down those bottles of OPI every Halloween.

      • Phyrra

        My guess is that it would be fine in nail polish.

      man! I’ve been tempted to get this but seeing as how there are unsafe eye ingredients, maybe not. I guess it’s too expensive for me anyway, but I really wanted to try it! seemed like a fun thing to incorporate for Halloween makeup

      • Phyrra

        Yeah, I’m super disappointed in this. Usually I love MUFE.

      I got excited when I read about it, but became suspicious when I saw that it was used both on the eyes and lips in the ad. Glow in the dark things tend to have a very limited usage, so that just raised a red flag for me.

      I’m just really disappointed that the ad didn’t match the fine print. While I check the “fine print” on these types of things before I buy them, I know there are many people who don’t, and to an extent, I think it’s irresponsible for them to advertise a product in such a way that it would be dangerous to mimic. It doesn’t seem obviously unsafe, so I could very easily see someone forgetting to read the back/bottom/inside of the box in their excitement to try it out. Obviously, it’s the consumer’s responsibility to read the instructions, but I feel it’s the manufacturer;s responsibility to make the instructions clear and not misleading. If they don’t end up putting the warning on the outside of the box, where it would be visible–that’d just be bad. I’d be pretty irritated to see this in a store, buy it, and open it up only to find out that I can’t use it in the way I wanted to.

      These kinds of things just make me grumpy. I like MUFE, but I feel like I can’t help but be paranoid now. I know they’re just trying to market to appeal to a larger demographic, but it always feels like a bit of a let down when there’s fine print involved.

      • Phyrra

        Last night when I got the email from MUFE, I was excited, but I didn’t read the ingredients (which were nowhere in the email) when I snagged them from Sephora’s website.

        After looking at the FDA’s site and the ingredients more closely today, I was very disappointed.

        My experiences with MUFE previously have been great (I love their liquid liners, pencil liners, aqua creams, etc), but this is kind of a let down for exactly what you said. I thought that the product could be used on the eyes, lips and cheeks from the ad.

      Ack! Thank you for posting the FDA details. I am one of those people that do not always check the fine print, especially if I get over excited. Especially looking at the way the product was used in the ad I was about to plaster it all over my eyes! Yeesh! I agree with Aleksandra, they should not advertise the product used in an unsafe manner. It is a bit misleading.

      • Phyrra

        You’re welcome! I’m just kinda disappointed since I really like MUFE :(

      I am pretty sure I am getting this and i’m putting it on my eyes anyway!!!!

      • Phyrra

        LOL! Totally your choice :)
