Beauty Review: Natural and Gluten Free Social Paint Lipsticks


lipsticks by social paint with a green palm frondsAs Plato once wrote, necessity is the mother of invention. Diagnosed with Celiac Disease in 2004, Kristen Wallace Tostado struggled to find cosmetic products that she could use. Inspired by the lack of lack of natural and organic, certified gluten free, anti-aging, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory cosmetics on the market, Kristen set out to create her own. She founded Social Paint in 2017.  I recently received a palette of colorful lipglosses and was excited to try them!

Social Paint lipsticks are certified gluten free and 100% cruelty-free (Leaping BunnyTM certified) products are free of carcinogenic, hormone and endocrine disrupting ingredients, parabens, sulfates, phthalates, tricolsan, gluten, petrochemicals, and toxins.  They are committed to the integrity of their natural formulas and simultaneously the health and wellness of both their valued customers and the environment.

 Because skin cancer runs in my family, my favorite thing about Social Paint lipsticks is that they have SPF 15. I personally don't understand why more companies don't do this. The skin of the lip is comprised of three to five cellular layers as vs. typical face skin, which has up to 16 layers. You put sunscreen on your face, so why wouldn't you on your lips? Social Paint uses non-nano zinc oxide which is tasteless and odorless. Genius!

 My go to color has been Party Crasher, it's a fun pop of color that's perfect for summer months. Whether I'm out hiking or running around town, Cha Cha Cha is my daytime color of choice. Pucker and Real Housewife are great nudes, Real Housewife has some shimmer in it while Pucker is more of an opaque nude.  I reach for these when I'm doing a colored eyeshadow or don't want to compete with my eye makeup.

An added bonus is the refreshing scent of the lipglosses. It's not overly sweet or cloying like some heavily perfumed lipsticks and glosses can be.  I'm a big fragrance fan, and you know some scents can be deal breakers. Social Paint has a soft citrus fragrance. They're not sticky or thick and gloppy, they slide on smoothly and have a nice consistency. Put them on and go on with your day. An added bonus is that it's made in California, so shop local!

I absolutely love those shades! I love how neutral they look for the most part, yet the consistency (from the pictures) look like it would be very comfortable on the lips!


Really love the shades of this lip color! so pretty and perfect for every day


i love that cha cha cha color, so soft and pretty!


I have coeliac disease too so this is really good to know 💗
