I used clinique for years as it didn't bother my allergies, but it's not listed on any of the gluten free makeup lists. I'm having trouble finding a foundation that works as well, doesn't cause allergies, and that matches my skin tone. Also clinique's under eye cream really works better than anything I've found.  

I called clinique to ask about gluten in the products I use, and all they'd do is send me ingredients. I'm hoping some of you have the knowledge to tell me if these are gluten free or not. I certainly couldn't tell, and looking up each ingredient would take forever. 

They also said there could be cross contamination. Normally I wouldn't use this but I haven't been able to use foundation for a very long time now, and I'm feeling desperate, but I don't want to make myself sick with it. 

Here are the products and their ingredients:

I don't see anything that would be a problem with the 3 products you listed. If they agree with your skin and you like them you should be safe gluten wise with those. Do check any other products especially lipsticks before using as not all their products are gluten free.

I know exactly how you feel.  I used to love Clinique too.  Sadly, I have been so desperate to get well that I had gone without makeup for years.  This may have been a mistake.  There's something to be said about feeling good about how you look.  I also don't see any obvious signs of gluten in these 3 items.  I believe some of their items do contain gluten (at least they used to).  That's why I stopped using Clinique.  They do mention the possibility of cross-contamination.  Like most things in life, you have to decide if it's worth the risk.  You probably know that Gabriel makes a line of Certified Gluten Free cosmetics.

No fragrance to the foundation, powder, or lipstick.  I love the lipstick and I always had a hard time finding one I like prior to Celiac.

Can buy online at amazon, vitacost, Gabriel site or in Whole Foods stores.  At least, that's where I've seen it.

There is another Certified Gluten Free line, I think it's called Afterglow.  I tried it once but didn't like the lipstick--too drying.

Good luck!
