Hi Rockin', just saw your post. The lipsticks are definitely scented, but no taste for me. It is a rose water scent, which I actually really like, and the formula is usually really great on the glosses, but to be honest, for 1/3 of the price, the L'oreal glosses are just as good. If you want to splurge (or occasionally get the GWP as I love to do with Lancome) their gloss is a good bet to buy and I usually love their colors/pigmentation. I don't think the L'oreal gloss is as scented and the Lancome ones.
I lurves the lipsticks as well, very, very moisturizing.
L'oreal is the sister brand to Lancome and their glosses are very similiar, as are the foundations for less money. I love the Lancome foundations, and loved their TM before they d/c'd it. I was really disappointed when they did that. You do have to be sure you check ingredients with Lancome to get a foundation with good UVA protection, but I find myself going back again and again to Lancome or L'oreal for foundation because the texture is divine.
Anybody tried these new gel liners from Lancome? I can always check MUA for a review, but I love the advise I get here on Specktra the best.
