[Update:] For the most up-to-date gluten free lipstick and makeup, subscribe to our Gluten Free Cosmetics List!
As the financial situation grows more uncertain, women are treating themselves to a new shade of lipstick in lieu of spending sprees on pricier items. A recent New York Times article listed 41 of fall’s most popular shades, and I wondered if any of them are safe for women with celiac disease (or their significant others with celiac). So, I’ve been working my way through the list, and I have received confirmation that the following lipsticks are gluten free:
Mark Dew Drenched Moisturlicious lip color in Pretty Posey, $6 at meetmark.com
MAC lipstick in Viva Glam VI, $14 at maccosmetics.com
With the holidays approaching, I thought that this list might also be helpful to people purchasing gifts for loved ones with celiac disease.
I hope that cosmetic companies will eventually include gluten plainly on the ingredient list, similar to what food companies have done. In the meantime, I’ll continue posting on this topic, and I hope that you’ll share information about any products you use with us.
