Thank you for your interest in M.A.C.

For the benefit of our gluten-sensitive consumers who may have cross-sensitivities, M.A.C takes the extra precaution of including soy, corn and rice in our research in addition to wheat, oat, barley and rye derivatives.

In addressing your concern about gluten, we would like to explain that a vast number of raw materials from many different suppliers and sources are used in the manufacture of Estee Lauder Companies' products. It is therefore not possible for us to fully guarantee that our products are completely free of ingredients that may elicit an allergic response in highly sensitive individuals who react to gluten. For example, it is possible that small amounts of a wheat sourced ingredient may remain on shared manufacturing equipment even after a thorough cleaning. We therefore recommend that you discuss this with your physician, because consumer safety is of utmost concern to us.

Provided below are the results of your gluten ingredient inquiry per our chemist. I trust they will answer your question; however please do not hesitate to contact us directly at 1-800-588-0070 between 9 AM and 5 PM EST if you should require any additional information.

That was nice of them. Always good to see a lipstick without it.

I have super sensitive eyes and can only use a mineral type liner that you wet with water and put on with a brush. Pricey little tiny jars of powders! Found out that the trick is to use a good quality brush. But trying to coordinate this stuff if you're over 50, and can't see anyway is a real trip.
