Recommended Posts

So I went ahead and called MAC makeup corporate to check my makeup. Because I spent alot of money on the makeup and now with going on Gluten diet for a month and having no pain, i need to eliminate it from my life totally it seems.. My GI is wonderful and doing lots of testing on my after having a horrible GI.

Anyways, I asked about Gluten and corn, since my grandmother and aunt have gluten and corn allergies. i don't have confirmed corn yet, so I'm going to use this until i run out and then go to gluten free makeup.. Anyone have good results with a cheap makeup???

MAC Foundation Studio Fix- No Gluten, but has Corn

Base Powder- No Gluten, but has Corn

Base visage (creamy white, evens out skin for foundation) HAS GLUTEN, they are letting me exchange it for a different product

Blush-(i don't have it in front of me) HAS GLUTEN, they are letting me exchange it for a different product

Most glosses do have gluten but she gave me a list of a few that I could try which would not contain gluten.

The corporate office was amazingly kind about letting me switch out my products since I can't switch them at the department stores without a receipt and its past 30 days. I just know spending lots of money on makeup is not in everyone's budget, especially ours. I'm so glad that I can still use most of these products but I might steer away from the Corn a little just in case I do have a Corn Allergy as well.

HERBAL ESSENCE-- Has released an official statement.. They cannot guarantee the fragrances. But their facility and all Herbal Essence products are gluten free, except for the fragrances that come from another location, they cannot guarantee they were not contaminated..

I've only been on this diet for about a month or so.. Does anyone else have problems with Herbal Essence..?

I cannot use Herbal Essence, not sure why since I did not see any gluten in the ingredients but my head did itch a lot. But I did not actually feel sick which is my usual gluten feeling. I changed my shampoo and itch went away. I do use MAC and Prescriptives make up, I read the labels, took a while but finally found blush, eye shadow and lipstick and eyeliner. I went to Macys where they give individual help. I have been soooo sick for lipstick so I am very careful of my makeup.

Recently diagnosed with Celiac Disease and starting to make some calls to companies. Had a lengthy phone conversation with very helpful rep. at M.A.C. Cosmetics. Such differences in ingredients depending on what "finish" you choose. The rep. followed up our conversation with an email that I thought might be useful to others so am posting it below. This forum has been incredibly beneficial as I begin learning about Celiac. Thanks to all for the posts! :D

Thank you for your interest in M.A.C, a brand of The Estee Lauder Companies.

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.

In response to your inquiry, the Zoom Waterfast Mascara contains ingredients derived from Soy and Corn.

In addition, please review the following products that we have previosly discussed:

Lipstick (Sheen Supreme) contains ingredients derived from Soy and Corn

Lipstick (Amplified Crème) contains barley extract, wheat germ extract and soybean extract

Lipstick (Cremesheen) contain ingredients Wheat bran, Soy and Corn

    • Hi there I have this exact same thing.. however I don’t have celiac that I know of.. I found this when google searching for what the heck is wrong with my face.  I was wondering if you ever found out.. or if it just went away. Thanks
    • I have read the newbie 101 and have been careful about reading labels. I'm the only one that's gluten free in my household, so they could be contaminating me. I was eating gluten for 6 weeks after my blood test because it took that long to get an official diagnosis and my GP told me to still be eating it for the tests to be accurate. It was probably too soon to retest, but the test was accidentally ordered by the lab. I have been having an increase in joint pain over the last couple months and my rheumatologist ordered lab work. The lab saw the celiac panel had been ordered, but didn't see results so they added it on because they thought it still needed done.  My gut issues are starting to get better, but I'm thinking the joint pain might have been from the celiacs because all of the rheumatoid tests came back normal for the first time in twenty years.
    • Hi and Welcome to the Forum.  I am glad that you are here! As with a lot of things in life, try not to compare yourself to other people. You are trying to be the best version of yourself - not Jill, Annie, or Maya.  People make a lot of foolish decisions in the world and it does not mean that you should do it too.  Also, many people are gluten free for a lot of reasons that aren't celiac. One of my best friends has gluten sensitivity but not celiac.  He eats a lot of food that I won't touch due to possible cross contamination which he doesn't worry about too much.  Be true to yourself and keep your self healthy.  It is so hard, but it's better than getting sick! I hate not being able to partake in yummy food at parties, but I have learned what junk food I can eat.  I will make sure to buy some tortilla chips or Fritos for picnics.  I freeze gluten-free cupcakes to eat when we celebrate birthday parties (I can just take one out of the freezer and go).  I make sure to take a dish to share to potlucks.  I ask permission at restaurants and parties to bring my own food - no one has ever said no, and when there is a time to celebrate, I splurge on something I really like.  Fortunately, there are a lot of gluten-free foods that I really like. Do i miss pizza and really good burger? YES! And sometimes, I still feel awkward, but life is so much more than food.
    • If Small was going to get rid of anything in a takeaway meal, it would be the bread with all its dreaded gluten. However, many scientists and nutritionists argue gluten is not a problem for people who do not have celiac disease or who are not "gluten-sensitive". Massey University senior lecturer in food ...

    • Holy cow! You people are all angels! I have been suffering unbearably with these hot, itchy, and painful bumps on my scalp for a year now. Two doctors had no idea what it was, so I was sent to see a "dermatologist." To my utter shock, he told me I WAS DIRTY! HE TOLD ME TO WASH MY HAIR EVERY DAY with a shampoo called Nizoral, that it would take the itch away. He also prescribed a Vaseline based salve with a steroid in it. Guess what? It did nothing nor did the shampoo, and the more I washed my hair, the worse it gets. It's like torture, and I just can't stop scratching holes into my scalp. Then they scab over, then itch again. I was almost ready to shave my head, until I found this forum. I knew nothing about celiac disease, sensitivity to gluten... I knew nothing. Just so happened that my daughter found a paper talking about celiac during her visit to her GI yesterday. She brought it home for me, and demanded that I read it!  WHAM- a light come on, and I said to her... That IS what I have. I am going to my GP tomorrow to demand that I be tested for ciliac. I am rather terrified, as I am already a type 1 diabetic and have been on insulin for 52 years! I was blaming my diabetes the whole time. I have had a lower left leg amputation, and the last thing I need is to start getting this ungodly rash on my stump!!! Thank you everyone for all of the useful information you have provided in this blog. Maybe I'm not going to die after all! 😉
