Mac Lipsticks

Fifteen dollars down the tube (pardon the pun). :(

Mac Amplified Creme Lipstick contains WHEAT GERM EXTRACT.

Just thought I'd pass it on. Dose anyone know what other lipsticks from MAC do not contain gluten.

Not happy with me right now, :(

Aw, sorry Lisa :( I don't use MAC--I use Neutrogena.

Good one, though--"down the tube" :D:ph34r:

They would probally let you return it if you tell them you are allergic, I had the same problem with some lip sugar thing from supora and they took it back, I would think mac would be as customer friendly....

Well..................I came home and tried it on and it looked soooo good. Thought, hum, maybe I should just confirm the ingredients. Said something like crap and got the tissue out and scrubbed. Back to Burts for now until my gut settles down. (which will kick in sometime tomorrow).

We drove an hour and a half to take someone Christmas shopping and got excited about the MAC counter. Some people here have said that SOME MAC products are gluten free and in my ecstasy, I got slack.

I should have known better.

I love MAC and wrote them about their lipsticks, here's their reply:

Thank you for taking the time to contact us and for your interest in M.A.C.

A vast number of raw materials from many different suppliers and sources

are used in the manufacture of Estee Lauder Companies' products. It is

therefore not possible for us to fully guarantee that our products are

completely free of ingredients that may elicit an allergic response in

highly sensitive individuals who react to gluten. For example, it is

possible that small amounts of a wheat sourced ingredient may remain on

shared manufacturing equipment even after a thorough cleaning. We

therefore recommend that you discuss this with your physician, because

consumer safety is of utmost concern to us.

In regards to your inquiry, M.A.C. is an extensive line with a huge variety

of products. Kindly respond with the exact products you would like us to

further investigate, including formulations and colors so that we may

forward you comprehensive ingredient listings. In the meantime, we have

included the ingredient listings to all of our different lipsticks.

So, it looks like ALL of the lipsticks *except* the Amplified Cream Lipstick are ok.
