    Hi! I’m sorry but the official website of The Balm says that the Foiled Again… Eyeshadow Palette and In theBalm of Your Hand Palette, have CARMINE (CI 75470) as an ingredient 🙁

      Hi Patricia,

      Hm.. thanks for catching that! I’ve removed both the products you mentioned from this list. This vegan product list was pulled from the balm’s official website when I searched for the keyword “vegan”. It appears as though some of their products that contain carmine were included in the search results. Thanks for letting me know and to help keep this list as accurate and updated as possible =)
