Any Gluten-free Lipstick At Walgreens, Wal-mart, Etc?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if there are any gluten-free lipsticks available at local drugstores, discount stores, or easily available at many health food stores? Thank you so much!


Gluten Intolerant with double HLA-DQ6. Pre-diagnosis: Weight gain, swelling, diarrhea, mouth sores, back pain, body aches, fatigue, muscle weakness, BRAIN FOG, runny nose, recurrent sinus infections, bruising, low white cell count (whole life), and more. My feet were so bad, I could hardly walk. Toward the end: Chronic Vit. D deficiency (almost no D in my body despite a quality multi-vit. each day).

There is hope! Gluten-free since Sept. '09, and I have my life back - I feel better than in many, many years!

Burt's Bees lip shimmers are gluten-free. I see them at just about every drug store, even grocery stores now.

That's awesome! Thank you! How much color do they give? Are they like a lightly colored chapstick, or do they give more color than that?

They're not like Chapstick--they're more like a cross between a lipstick and gloss. They range in color from clear to very saturated deep reds and pinks.

The tocopherol they use is from soy.

Just had to add my two cents about Burt's Bees lip shimmers...I have really dry lips, which is made worse by constantly playing the oboe, and I searched and tried different products that I hoped would help my chronically chapped lips. By far the best thing I ever found was the lip shimmers, and that was before going gluten free. They used to be so hard to find, I'm glad they're more widely available now!


Had severe health problems for 5 years; previous diagnoses are asthma, mitral valve prolapse, migraines, lactose intolerance, foot drop, fibro, chronic fatigue, suspected neurocardiogenic syncope and ehlers danlos syndrome, and now suspected celiac.

Been gluten free for 3 weeks now, and feeling much better. Able to exercise for the first time in 2 years, much more energy, and much less pain...starting to feel 40 instead of 80 (I'm 23). I'm excited for what the future will bring.

Hello.  I am new here and work in the beauty industry.   Gluten free lip products include:  Pacifica, Revlon Colorstay Lipstick, Physicians Formula Argan Wear Lip Oil, Elf products, Blistex products, Cover Girl states most should be, but double check the ingredients, Maybelline and Loreal both state that they use no gluten ingredients but cannot guarantee the environment in where it is manufactured.  Hope this helps!

If you really want piece of mind and to insure the end product is tested, consider a certified gluten free lipstick like Red Apple or Gabriel.

I use L'Oreal Colour Riche mostly and haven't had a problem.  However, I don't know that I'm what one would consider 'highly sensitive' with my Celiac.

Didn't know that about Revlon Colorstay -- that's good news.
