9 BEST GLUTEN FREE LIPSTICKS
Kjaer Weis Lipstick $30
Okay, first things first, we love how iconic the name of this product is⎯ when the formula is that good, no need to try to bedazzle customers with a fancy name, Lipstick is enough! This lippie has a silky, velvety finish and works with the warmth of your lips to deliver the perfect consistency. Shea butter, rosehip, and jojoba oil make this product super nourishing for the lips. Other organic ingredients we love in this formula include castor seed oil, lemon peel oil, and sunflower seed oil. With an innovative refillable tube, you’ll be spending less money on repurchases and saving the planet on the side!
Lily Lolo Natural Lipstick $19
This award-winning product is packed with nourishing ingredients like vitamin E and rosemary extract to provide a wonderful natural glow. In fact, the brand says the natural lipstick is good enough to eat (perhaps not the tastiest, but either way, impressive). The organic lipstick uses organic extracts and oils to leave a natural, velvety finish on the lips. Lily Lolo advise uses to prep lips before using to make the most of the product, and blot lips before a second layer to ensure long-lasting wear. In addition, adding a gloss to this product completely changes the makeup look and works beautifully!
Ilia Color Block Lipstick $28
Arguably one of the most well-known clean makeup brands out there, Ilia has done it once again with this luscious lipstick formula. The Color Block Lipstick comes in a plethora of shades⎯ from nudey pinks to vibrant reds, berries, and browns. With immense pigment, it leaves a smooth and creamy finish on the lips that stays for the entire day! The hydrating formula uses castor seed oil, apricot kernel oil, jojoba oil, shea butter, mango seed butter, cocoa seed butter, and so many more organic oils and extracts. These ingredients not only hydrate the lips, but further intensify the pigments too!
Alternatively, Ilia also makes a lip product much more subtle and rather sheer and tinted. The Tinted Lip Conditioner ($28) is perfect if you’re looking for something to swipe on in the mornings to give the lips a hint of color. In other words, it is the best in-between of a too-sheer tint and a too-pigmented lipstick. In the ingredient list, you’ll find many of the same organic ingredients as the Color Block Lipstick, but this also has jasmine oil, olive fruit oil, and sesame seed oil. These ingredients add to the lovely subtle scent of the lip tint, and to the sheerness of it as well. We promise this one will be a top shelf product⎯ you’ll be using it on the daily!
Alima Pure Velvet Lipstick $26
With a semi-matte finish that does NOT skip on the richness of natural oils, this lipstick truly is heaven in a little tube. The luxe formula “performs like a lipstick, but feels like a balm”. Key ingredients in the blend include coconut and jojoba oils that absorbs quickly and leaves lips soft to the touch. Antioxidant-rich elderberry extract nourishes and soothes the lips. The unique inclusion of bamboo powder is to thank for the satin-like consistency of the formula! The result is a natural, clean, and wonderfully silky lipstick.
Hush + Dotti Organic Lip and Cheek Tint $29
If you’re not fully immersed into the makeup world and find yourself hesitant to try out lip products, there could not be a less intimidating one to begin with. This lip and cheek tint can be blended with the warmth of your finger onto the eyelids, apples of the cheek, cheekbone, lips, virtually anywhere on the face. The blendable formula is also layerable, so one swipe is great for a sheer, natural-looking glow, but a couple more can build into something more bold and glam! With skin-loving ingredients like lavender, sunflower and oregano oils included, this product won’t break the skin out but rather leave it feeling nourished. We also love how it is one of the rare non-greasy, gel-based formulas among lip and cheek tints, so it won’t slip and slide on the face or lips. This one is perfect for keeping in the purse for touch-ups to add color onto the face, or to add onto your full-face makeup routine for cohesivity in color!
Kosas Weightless Lipstick $28
The name couldn’t be any truer: this truly is a weightless lipstick. Straying away from overly matte or overly greasy formulas, this lipstick hydrates the lips with numerous active botanical oils and butters. Mango seed butter works to smooth lines in the lips, and shea and cocoa seed butter repair and soften the lips. Rosehip seed oil and jojoba oil are both rich in vitamins and antioxidants. Essentially, these botanicals will leave your lips feeling truly hydrated, not just looking like they are. With an even fade and a nourishing feel, you can’t go wrong with this one.
Juice Beauty Phyto-Pigments Luminous Lip Crayon $22
Where most of the lipsticks on this list are tubes, this lip crayon has easier application. Juice Beaty’s product is a sheer lipstick that leaves the lips with a tinted, balm-like finish. If you’re looking for something bolder, don’t run away just yet: this is a buildable lipstick! Easily layerable, a couple more swipes will help you achieve the perfect ratio of natural-to-bold you’re looking for. The non-toxic formula uses vitamin C and E to soften the lips. Mango seed butter further hydrates the lips, leaving them pillowy-soft. Credo-certified clean (meaning cruelty-free too), the lip crayon comes in nine playful shades that range from soft nudes to vibrant pinks. For the lip-tint lover, this one is a game-changer!
Bite Beauty Power Move Creamy Matte Lip Crayon $26
Perhaps one of the best in the lipstick game, Bite Beauty’s lip crayon is certainly worth the price. Key ingredients include pomegranate extract for hydrating antioxidants, African mango butter for nourishing fatty acids, and orange peel wax to seal hydration and allow creamy application. The vegan and cruelty-free formula is high-performance, and leaves a bold creamy-matte finish. We also love the built-in sharpener, which is perfect to prevent it from dulling down. With numerous shades to choose from, specifically a wonderful nude range, you’ll certainly find the color meant for your skin tone. Bite Beauty has only impressed us even more with this lip crayon!
