Red lipstick is a must for a big night or an anytime mood boost, and every woman needs at least one in her makeup bag. But steering clear of gluten doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice gorgeous, long-lasting color, and here are my top 5 crimson picks from names you know, and a few you may not.
Certified gluten-free, Afterglow’s Lip Love Lipsticks feature organic oils to moisturize and condition lips as vitamins nourish, soothe and repair this delicate skin. “Courage” is a classic, matte, opaque red, and I also like the sheer “Tango” when we want a less dramatic crimson lip.
Red Apple is a top choice for those in the gluten-free-beauty-know, and “Rebel!” is a blue-based red that also helps create the illusion of a whiter smile!
I like the slimmer size of Vapour Organics’ Siren Lipstick because it offers a bit more precision—which is important when applying a bold color like red. With organic ingredients, botanicals and mineral pigments, “Tryst” is a universally flattering, long wearing, neutral red that doesn’t disappoint.
Any beauty maven who knows what’s what (gluten-free or not) has a tube of “Jungle Red” stashed somewhere. This highly pigmented lipstick offers long, full-coverage wear without drying out lips.
When you prefer a subtle wash of color to a full-on red lip, this balm-lipstick hybrid gets the job done. Packed with antioxidants, moisturizing oils—and certified gluten-free—this is perfect for day, night and all occasions.
