Ok this might sound weird..and it might be because im sick..but from the lingerie collection....is it me or do the lipsticks not smell like vanilla. My body suit especially has no vanilla smell at all. My friend also smelled it and agreed...so i dont think im going totally crazy. I dont know...it might just be my lipsticks...but i even brought it back to mac and the MA was just like..it smells fine to me. I dont know..figured I would just ask.....anyone?

My Body Suit and Lingerie l/s have a really strong vanilla scent...
I was kinda sad that the lipsticks that came with the ornamentalism stashettes didn't smell like vanilla to me...

Mine have a very nice vanilla scent to them.
Do yours smell bad or rancid??
However if you're still not happy with yours, deff. take them back (again) and get an exchange. There's no point in holding on to something you're not 100% satisfied with.

Some of mine smell like vanilla and others are less scented.. I wouldn't worry if they don't stink.
Rancid lipstick smells really strong, but its a gross smell.

Wow, I don't think any of my lipsticks smell like anything... I didn't know they were supposed to be scented!

*goes to smell*

Humph! Nothing! Creepy. Maybe I just can't smell it.

I've got my nose right up body suit now..you kinda smell the more lipsticky smell more...but theres a little hint of vanilla in it. Its really tough to point out though. I never knew also that they were scented. My boyfriend now thinks im a dork for sitting here smelling my lipsticks.

I love the MAC Lipstick smell and i'm planning to get a MAC perfume that best smells like it..but keep forgetting which one is supposed to smell most like the lipsticks.

Mmm... I love that scent! I love CSP.

I don't think any of the MAC fragrances smell like it, but I personally am addicted to MV3... It's dark, sexy, sophisticated... and mm oh so good. Has a bit of that vanilla smell to it. It smells like vanilla and leather to me.

That is the big reason I love mac lip products and not any other....I haven't bought any lipsticks in a month... Its time for a trip to the counter.

My Dame in a Dress, Who's That Lady and Cool and Aloof Lipgelees have the same smell, it's not a strong vanilla scent like it's supposed to be.

Same with my Body Suit.

Doesn't smell rancid, but smell like regular lipstick.

I'm a new MAC addict and I noticed that the lipglasses smelled sweet (i didn't know they did this on purpose or that it's suppose to be vanilla, but it is absolutely wonderful!) Smelly lipstick is the worst. Back in high school, I use to buy a particular drug store brand that smelled terrible, but I thought lipstick was suppose to smell that way back then. =p I ended up throwing them all away.

i have the Heatherette lipstick and it smells like play-doh (even when i first got it). anyone else experience this?

Glaze and Lustre formula lipsticks from MAC do tend to have a weaker scent. Mattes tend to 'decay' faster scent wise than the remaining formulas.

Interesting, I just assumed I got used to the smell - my lipsticks don't seem to smell of vanilla anymore, but my lipglasses seem to be like that after I've used them for the first time - no more smell. It's true that the TLCs seem to smell of vanilla the strongest, they even seem to taste half-decent if I accidentally lick my lips or something.
