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.

    • Easy Soy-Mirin Glazed Salmon (Gluten-Free)
      If you're looking for and easy yet exotic way to serve fish, look no further than this soy and mirin glazed salmon. It's easy to make and offers a delicious departure from standard fare. View the full article
    • Mexican?
      Chipotle is one of my favorite places to eat, but it is a 50/50 chance of having a reaction due to cross-contamination.  Yes, they graciously make an effort to be gluten-free and will change gloves.  BUT, before that they used gloves and handled flour tortillas and then used same gloves to reach into the lettuce and cheese--voila--cross-contaminated food.  Changing gloves for you does not avoid this cross-contamination problem.  I started having reactions and my daughter advised me to avoid all the corn products there because of what she read on their website about allergens--so no more chips, or crispy taco shells, or corn.  I also avoid the green salsa and the pico de gallo--not that I am aware of cross contamination but she never eats that there and she has been successful at not having reactions, so that is what I do now and have had much success. Here is what I get:   burrito bowl with either white or brown cilantro lime rice, grilled veggies, black beans, barbacoa, red salsa, cheese, sour cream, guacamole, and lettuce on top.  So GOOD! and so far, safe for me.
    • I'm actually scared to go to the doctor and could use some advice
      Hi Elle.   To be honest, to this day I am not sure if I actually had zoster sine herpete.  It was one of several suggestions by bewildered doctors.  What I can tell you is that I had to have MRIs  because one doctor thought I might have trapped nerve in my spine and I thought it would reveal something dreadful being the sort of person who gets weird nerve sensations - and it didn't reveal a thing.   It was unsettling to have symptoms like that for so long but what made me think my brother in law might have been right was because the worst of the symptoms lasted a year which I gather is pretty typical (but don't panic, because they can go a lot faster!)   My nutritionalist told me that if we get run down we are more prone to shingles so that is something to watch. Easy to say (and I'm speaking to myself here!) try not to spend too much time by yourself worrying about these things because anxiety never helps with nerve pain. I found that rest was very beneficial so I would recommend you try to get as much of that as you can.  Also, someone suggested a warm bath for 20 minutes with some Epsom salts.  That helped too. As I say, just one reason you might be getting this pain but I would continue with the investigations and perhaps mention the pain to your doctor and ask if it could be shingles.      
    • Rudy's Not Gluten Free
      Rudy's is one of my favorite places to eat, but you do have to be VERY careful due to cross-contamination.  I always get the cutter's choice brisket, some form of potatoes (new potatoes or baked potato), pinto beans, 3-bean salad and use generous slathering of their regular BBQ sauce, not the Sissy Sauce.   My daughter has gotten sick a couple of times dining with us at Rudy's, but we have narrowed down the culprit to cross contamination.  She usually orders the stuffed baked potato, gets brisket (chopped up)--not the chopped BBQ, and asks them to use a new plastic knife to  cut open the potato.  They use tissue to pick up the chopped meat and put it on the potato which also comes with sour cream, butter/margarine, and grated cheddar cheese.  They have always been very courteous about accommodating us.  This has eliminated my daughter from having reactions.  (The regular metal knife had been used on bread.)  I also reach over the tray as it is being filled and place one of their paper tissues over my meat or potato so that when they place my husband's bread slices or sandwich (made with regular bread), crumbs won't get on my food.  I am so thankful for Rudy's--it is so good--and with taking these precautions, I believe it is relatively safe.  
    • I'm actually scared to go to the doctor and could use some advice
      Thank you, squirmingitch. I'll pass that on to Mom, too. Cristiana, did they ever determine what caused your nerve pain or do you now think it was related to Celiac? That form of shingles sounds awful (well, any form sounds awful - my mom's had it 3 times!) and fortunately I do not think that's what's ailing me.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
