Maybelline Shiny-Licious Lip Gloss

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Does anyone know if Maybelline Shiny-Licious lip glosses are gluten free?

I found a few blogs that list them as gluten free, but I have a few problems:

1) There are no ingredients on the product - I emailed Maybelline regarding this, but they never got back to me.

2) Maybelline seem to only provide a list of gluten containing ingredients to watch out for (but it's of no use if the ingredients are not listed on the product!!)

3) The color I bought is 'Strawberry Tart'. I heard strawberry flavoured cosmetics can contain Barley... so in your opinion, if Shiny-Licious are gluten free, do you think this particular Strawberry Tart flavour Shiny-Licious might be suspect?

Anyone has experience using Maybelline products?

Thanks a lot!

Btw, this is the particular one I am wondering about:

I found the answer to my question... They are gluten free... thought I'd post it here in case anyone else was wondering about these.

I called Maybelline and they emailed me the list of ingredients found in all the different Shiny-licious lip glosses + a list of ingredients Maybelline use that contain gluten. After comparing both lists, they appear to be gluten free.

I put some on yesterday and no reaction. Yay! :D
