It’s hard enough to find foods that are soy-free and gluten-free, let alone a brand new lippie. You can study a chart full of alternative names for soy all day long and then search for them on your lipstick’s ingredient list, but the process is going to make you feel crazy — and if you’re lucky, you’ll end up with one or two options. No matter the reason you steer clear of soy and gluten, we’re here to make your life a little easier by giving you some soy-free and gluten-free lippie options. Ahead, discover some of our favorite lip balms, lip glosses and lipsticks:
Not only is this cult-fave shade soy-free, but the entire line of NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick is too. Choose from one (or more) of 24 shades, including one of our faves — pictured below — a mauve neutral shade named Soft Spoken.
“Go ahead, lick your lips,” is one of Colorganics’ most frequent mottos because their product bases are certified organic to USDA food standards. The base of the brand’s most popular shade, Red Earth, is created using plant derived oils and waxes.
The natural pigment from 100% Pure cosmetics comes from “only fruit, vegetables, tea, coffee and cocoa.” The brand’s beloved Lip Glaze contains a base of avocado and cocoa butter and will give you a sheer coat of color with a shiny finish. Every shade of Lip Glaze is soy free.
If bullet lipstick or lip gloss isn’t your style, we recommend La Bella Donna Lip Sheer. It’s designed as a click-pen and the product dispenses into the brush applicator for you to paint onto your lips. For a subtle touch, try out the shade Nude, and for bold, bright color, check out La Viv en Rose or Poppy.
VMV Hypoallergenics is committed to formulating the safest products for allergy sufferers with very strict standards. We’re loving the brand’s Glitz Lipstick, which comes in 10 different shades ranging from a mauve pink shade named Chorus Line to a coral shade named World Peace.
Afterglow Cosmetics is dedicated to using organic ingredients. The entire brand is certified gluten-free and soy-free, so if you’re looking for more makeup to pair with your new lippies, we recommend starting here.
