Gluten-free Lipstick

18 posts in this topic

I received assurance from Maybelline that Shiny-Lucious, Moisture Extreem, Superstay Lipcolor and Shine Seduction lipstick ARE gluten-free. I also received the same assurance from Estee Lauder that their lipsticks are gluten free. Has anyone else contacted these or other lipstick manufacturers?

I started a similar topic: http://www.glutenfreeforum.com/index.php?showtopic=37642

Did you mean "shiny-licious" and is it the lip gloss in the tube, cause I think I have that one laying around from before I was dx'd and I didn't know about using it.

Have you had success using any of those maybelline lip colors?

This was Maybelline's reply:

Thank you for your interest in Shiny-Licious, Moisture Extreme, Superstay Lipcolor, and Shine Seduction.

I also need to know about Revalon lipsticks, Victoria Secret Lip gloss and loreal. If anyone has this info thanks for your help. I also have been using maybelline age rewind liquid foundation. I put it on my lips to ensure my lip color stays on longer, and I hope I am not making myself sick from doing this..

I recently ordered some lipstick from Afterglow after seeing advertisement on the forum. It's really wonderful. A little pricey, but totally gluten-free and no chemicals. It's worth the price. I can't wait to try some other shades. If you're not sure what shade to order you can talk to consultant on line. Nice company to deal with.

Afterglow states : "Are your gluten free cosmetics made in a gluten free facility? Our gluten free cosmetics are made in a facility that makes other non gluten free cosmetics."

Anyone sensitive should be aware that this brand is not totally gluten-free, just technically gluten free.

I am still looking for just one single totally gluten-free cosmetics line.

Lancome's line Le Rouge Absolu is gluten-free. I'm highly sensitive to gluten and have worn their lipstick every day for over two years. Pricey but lasts and worth it.

I use Afterglow Cosmetics. Actually, in the last 2 years I've switched virtually all my cosmetics to the Afterglow brand. I'm highly allergic to soy and gluten. Afterglow's gluten free lipsticks and lip liner are amazing and I hear that they just came out with gluten free organic lip glosses too!

I find it really comforting to know that the founder of Afterglow understands celiac diseas from a personal perspective. The website says that both her mother and sister have celiac disease. I've called Afterglow's customer service before and they all seem very knowledgeable about gluten issues... which is a huge difference from most companies who don't have a clue or just email an automated response.

It seems that Afterglow has updated their website since the last comments (and added new products)... it's very interesting. . . Afterglow Cosmetics Gluten Free Statement

Where does one find "Afterglow'? I just re-researched a bunch of Lancome products 'cause I needed/(wanted) some new lipstick and Le Rouge Absolu, Color Design and L'Absolu Rouge are still gluten free.

Go to www.afterglowcosmetics.com. I actually placed an order for one of the starter kits and some eyeshadows last night and if I like them, will probably be ordering more. They are a little pricey but not anymore so than department stores. I'm also trying the Rejuva and Everyday Minerals to see which one I like best. :)

Lisa, here's the link. I bought a tube of the lipstick and a lip pencil--they threw in a sharpener for free. :D

I realize that this is an old thread but wanted everyone to know that I recently communicated with a regional manager at AfterGlow. When I inquired as to whether the company's Everyday Mineral products (including lipsticks) were actually tested for gluten and soy, the answer was NO.

I would love to try their products but I am super sensitive. If anyone who is SUPER SENSITIVE has safely used the foundation (loose powder for dry skin), lipsticks, lip pencils, blush, and bronzer without a reaction, please let me know.

Thanks a million,

Sylviaann

I don't know whether this is new news or not, but the what I from the Lauder Companies (Lauder, Clinique, Prescriptives, Origins, Aveda, Bobbi Brown, MAC are ones I can think of....) that I saw stated that their lipsticks are not guaranteed gluten-free (see quote below). I worked for Estee Lauder in the past. This is consistent with the company policy, due to manufacturing processes and purity. However, it should be noted that in a recent study, the amount of gluten found in most lipsticks is not easily determinable, or even available. (http://www.livingwithout.com/blog/gluten_in_moisturizer-2734-1.html). And, as noted in the quote below, just because gluten isn't added TO the lipstick, doesn't mean it isn't IN the lipstick due to manufacturing processes. Currently, I don't know of any companies that independently test their lipsticks for gluten content.

All of Arbonne's make-up, lip stick included, is gluten free.

    • I'm actually scared to go to the doctor and could use some advice
      Hi Elle......do you think you would have better luck obtaining a full Celiac panel from your GP or a gastro doc?  You really need to be tested for Celiac because of all your symptoms.  Many other people probably thought they were dying of some horrible disease because they had so many symptoms that docs ignored.  Very common problem for us.  Plus, your Mom has had "IBS" all her life.  I should add that IBS is not a diagnosis.  No one needs to be told their bowel is irritated......they already know that.  This is where the medical establishment, no matter where you live in this world, fail us.  They need to find the root cause and there always is one.  You also do not need to have any gastro issues to be a Celiac but you do have some, along with all your symptoms mentioned.  Anxiety is a huge problem with Celiac Disease and for many, it goes away just fine on the gluten-free diet, without need of meds...which should always be a last resort measure.  I have never had an anxiety problem in my entire life until after I was diagnosed with Celiac.  I may have had it but with all the other numerous symptoms I had, the anxiety may have gotten buried somewhere.  But guess what? On the extremely rare occasion when I am glutened or cc'd, I get major anxiety for about 4 days and then its gone. B12 is a water soluble vitamin so whatever you don't use, it exits the body in your urine.  It is pretty damn hard to overdose on the stuff.  I take a B vitamin everyday, very high quality ones and my B12 is usually in the high 600 range.  Optimally, it should be between 650-800 so yours was abysmal pre-supplementation.  Absorption can also be affected by PPI's.  You did notice improvement with the tingling sensation and fatigue once your levels were way up so take notice of that. My biggest advice is to get your mother and you tested for celiac, with a FULL PANEL. Then you'll have to wait and see what that shows. You could always trial a gluten-free diet if all testing is complete and the results were either negative or inconclusive. That sometimes happens with people, especially if they have Celiac's other cousin......non-celiac gluten intolerance.  This would be the best route to go with regards to your anxiety, unless it becomes disabling and you need meds, short term. Make sure you tell them that anxiety is a HUGE symptom of Celiac and it is not normal for younger people to have extreme anxiety like that, for no reason. Good luck to you and please call and make the appointment. I understand your fear....I hate doctors and it's pure mistrust. But sometimes you have to address a problem head on.    
    • newbie diagnosed mom - testing 8 yr old now
      good to know. I am not going for a biopsy. I do not have health insurance, i know i know please no political comments. My children do. My husband and I don't right now. If we lived in another state, we would have coverage. I just made an appt to do a full blood panel for my daughter this week. I would rather find some confirmation for her through a blood test, i feel a scope is too invasive for a child.

    • I'm actually scared to go to the doctor and could use some advice
      Well, if I were you, I would go see your doctor and talk to him/her about all this.  Tell your doctor about your anxiety. When I finally did, my doctor prescribed a low dose of an anti-anxiety med and it has made a world of difference in my life.   About the whole thing with the B12 and the weird symptoms . Keep taking the B12 in the meantime to see if that helps again. But talk about it anyway.  If you want a celiac test, ask for the panel to be done. Your doctor may or may not want to send you to a GI for that. Remind him your mom is being tested. You do not have to wait for her results.  Work with your doctor if possible and if not, maybe find a doctor you can work with. If all you end up needing is b12, that's a good thing. If you end up needing more help, starting with your doctor and a heart to heart Talk will have you going in the right direction.

      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.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
