Gluten Free Drugstore Makeup?!
0

15 posts in this topic

What do you use that you have found to be gluten free?! Before I was completely debiliated by this brain fog and could still work I was quite obsessed with makeup and beauty products so I have a rediculous amount of stuff.. Being that I am very new to going gluten-free and taking it step by step Im just curious! Esp, eye liner and mascara. ( I have a terrible twitch in my left eyelid and am wondering if it is gluten related! Any recommendations on drugstore face moisterizer as well?

There are hundreds of threads on this topic.

okay, type in moisturizer, etc, and you will find a lot of helpful information!

I do not worry about eye makeup as I do not get that in my mouth.

Your main concern is lip stick.

and welcome to the forum!

Foundation, powder, etc. have caused huge problems for me in addition to lipstick. I touch my face all the time without thinking, rub my eyes, then yep! In my mouth my fingers end up going for whatever reason. So, I just stick with affordable online companies. Cleure (along with great makeup, also has soaps, shampoos, and toothpastes, etc. too) and Afterglow being the best and closest to mainstream makeup as far as blending, coverage, and color.

Hi :)

I use Burt's Bees Lip Shimmers with no problem.

Eye liner and mascara, AfterGlow Cosmetics.

Lotion, soap and body oils California Baby is my line of preference.

Hope this helps!

I use Maybelline Great Lash Mascara and have various eye liners (I picked up a Wet & Wild eye liner on a whim recently). I'm using a Revlon foundation, Cover Girl powder...no special products that I can't pick up at a local drug store or Wal-Mart.

In the past six months I picked up a Garnier moisturizer I like a lot and would like to try their shampoo and conditioner. Right now I use Suave.

Lip products would be more critical...I use Blistex Lip Balm (in the blue-green tube). Rarely wear lipstick but then I don't work so no need to dress up. I threw out tons of lipstick when I first went gluten-free as I had no idea what was in it.

Not everything has to be expensive...and this is coming from a former product snob. laugh.gif

Ditto, SA. I used to buy high- end products like Estee Lauder, Clinique, Origins, Bare Minerals, etc. although I never wore foundation.

Maybelline Great Lash works better than ANY of those brands!

I am still looking for a lip gloss I like. I purchased a very expensive one from one of the "gluten free" makeup companies, as well as a mascara (when I worried incessantly early on about such things) and honestly, for a total of $50, neither of those products was very good. I threw them both out. :(

Back to basics for me. Garnier is good.

I just thought maybe reading a few threads would give you more to consider as you make your list.

Be sure to check the dates on the posts for the most recent info.

Hope you can find what you need!

Have you tried Red Apple Lipstick? I love their lipsticks, glosses and balm. They are gluten-free, paraben free, vegan, etc. They have amazing customer service and when I bought my first couple I cringed at the price (I have never been one to pay a lot for cosmetics since I don't wear them very often) but I've gotta say they are totally worth it.

Red Apple has developed eyeliners and are about to introduce eye shadows. I guess they hope to roll out all sorts of gluten-free cosmetics but are taking it very slowly and doing lots of testing to make sure the products are of high quality but pass all the tests they give them. I've been so impressed with their lip products I will happily buy any other products they develop!

I agree with Red Apple! I have three lipsticks and two glosses. I love that the shades are pink! They are super sweet, check out their page on Facebook.

Another vote for Red Apple Lipstick. They have a lipstick "exchange" program whereby you send in your old used lipstick for a discount on their stuff. I sent in 3 lipsticks/glosses and bought 2 lipsticks and 1 gloss. I love them. I have Ruby Slippers and Strawberry and both are very flattering colors.

At first I wasn't sure, but saw that the "celiac Diva" used these and reviewed them. They were very fast in answering all my questions. I'm gluten-free of course, but also nut, soy free. I have no problems with the lipsticks at all. I will tell you some are lighter on the lips than other. I have both and I love both. they have a few shades that are shimmers. I love that. The are a very sweet couple that really care about putting out a great product.

Has anyone had any luck with Younique? They have several products that are gluten-free too.

 

What about for face cleansers and stuff? I am looking for good products but won't make me broke either.

Welcome, @MBrooks985!

This thread is pretty old, with only one person still posting regularly.  This is from their website, and a long list of gluten free products are listed.  If you have celiac, I would pay attention to the bold statement, especially if there is a chance you might ingest some makeup by accident:

 

 

We are aware that some customers are highly sensitive to gluten. Most of our products are free of ingredients derived from common gluten sources (such as wheat, oats, rye and barley) but since many are manufactured in facilities where gluten may be present, we cannot represent that they are completely gluten-free. We would suggest that you consult with your physician or conduct a patch test if you have concerns about gluten and the ingredients in our product formulas.

    • This easy to make bean dip makes a great addisiton to any good munching session. Goes gret with salsa and gluten-free beer. View the full article
    • Good grief!  :o. I'm so sorry, I wish there was something I could do or say to help you.  I agree with the NP, your primary needs to be requesting copies of your records from the other doctors, as well as the records and lab reports from your hospital stay.  They are supposed to work together as a team, not just individually out in left field.
    • Just a quick one to say I got a diagnosis of celiac disease today. I know in the past it's been helpful for me to know the outcome for other folk, so thought I would update. The moral of this story is even with a VERY borderline blood test it's worth persisting. thanks for all the help Sue

    • Well, I am stressed to the max. I just spent 3 days in the hospital with D and stomach pain, dizziness, chest pain, generally unwell. Then another trip to the ER on top of that. My protein was low and my RBC and hemoglobin dropped below normal in 3 days. Not terribly low, but below normal. I also had metabolic acidosis which still confuses me. I usually eat every 2-3 hours despite it causing pain to keep my energy up and was unable to eat that frequently in the hospital. I usually carry protein with me and had been taking liquid iron which I stopped a few weeks ago because my new endo is not a fan of iron supplements. As soon as I got home from the hospital I started with my protein drinks and blackstrap molasses for iron.  I now have bilateral mild pleural effusions and a nodule on my left lung, which hopefully is nothing, but was not there on a CT back in March. In addition, my left adrenal gland, which also appeared normal in March, is calcified and the report indicates this is most likely due to a previous bleed or infection. My colon appears tortuous (whatever that means) and we are waiting on colon/endo biopsies. I have been gluten-free since March except for cc so expect the biopsies to again be negative.  My primary care is useless. I am in the process of getting a new one I will see on the 7th but need the current one to fill out FMLA paperwork because I both physically and mentally need time to recover. I will have to go off of payroll for 2 weeks but I think I need to. I called the primary's office today to discuss the hospital tests which she does NOT have yet and to ask if we should/could start a low dose of prednisone because my body is attacking itself. My thyroid on ultrasound is also abnormal though my bloodwork thus far is normal. But it hurts on that side. The only reason the ultrasound was ordered is because I asked for it in the first place. The only reason I have started seeing an endocrinologist is because I found one myself. Anyway...I broke down in tears on the phone eith her today and she told me I was having a "manic episode". I have no history of mania. I only recently started taking xanax to help me cope with the stress of being sick. I was not sick until I did this stupid gluten challenge over the winter. My mother was in town and spoke with the doctor on the phone as well who was trying to get my mom to take me to a psych hospital. She also threatened to send the police to check on me. My mother assured her I was in no danger and we hung up the phone in complete shock. Admittedly, I was in tears when I called her and probably sounded like a fucking mess. But I believe I referenced the dropping iron, protein, fluid near lungs, enlarged thyroid and attacked adrenal gland then literally said "my body is attacking itself and I need help" to which she said, "I think you are manic". Lovely. If I was a mess before that phone call it was 10x worse when we hung up.  Anyway, this is the first night it has been extremely difficult to sleep. I admit my thoughts about my odd symptoms keep me up often recently. I mean, who the hell bleeds from or gets an infected adrenal gland?! I am sure it was another time I begged my primary for help. On a side not, the NP at the ER told me the primary should be putting these pieces together and communicating with my other doctors better. He then stated that he used to go to the same practice but left because the practice got too big and like a business. So I got some validation from that chat.  A melatonin or a .25 xanax usually does the trick for me to sleep but I am so disturbed about my interaction today, stressed at my health, stressed that my ex has our son so much because I am always sick (bless him for coming through), stressed that I have to go back to this awful doctor because I will need the FMLA paperwork before I see the new doc on the 7th.  8 months ago, I took a multivitamin when I remembered it and that was it.  End rant. Maybe now that it is off my chest I can finally sleep.
