Review the active and inactive ingredients in your make-up and cross reference whether those can cause your symptoms. Rhinorrhea (runny nose) can also be caused by allergic rhinitis, seasonal allergies, or vasomotor rhinitis, as well as a sinus infection or other respiratory illness. If rhinorrhea is the only symptom, a intranasal corticosteroid such as flonase or nasonex or sinus rinse can help.
