Subtle flavoring is okay. Nothing overwhelming or I feel like I’m in grade school with my Lip Smackers! But I do LOVE that all MAC lip products are vanilla scented/flavored. Yum!

I would much, much rather their be no scent/flavor. With all the allergies and intolerances to scent/flavor, I would think companies would just forgo it.

No flavor for me at all, luckily high end companies don´t really flavor their products as far as I know, they just scent them, and in most cases you can´t smell anything once you apply the lipstick or gloss. On the other hand, flavor on my lip products can be a real deal breaker to me.

I wouldn’t really taste it anyways (I never, ever lick my lips), but I prefer no flavor! If it were up to me most lip products would be unscented even.

I absolutely LOVE flavoured lip products, on lip sticks it is not really necessary but it is a huge bonus if they smell nice, like MAC for example, for lip glosses and lip balms a flavour, or at least scent, is absolutely essential, unless it’s a Chanel gloss, then i can overlook the fact that it isn’t flavoured lol. And I’m actually still a big sucker for lip smackers 😀 My favourite flavours are fruity berry ones, sweet ones like bubble gum oder candy floss and vanilla. I really hate chocolate or coffee or something like that though.

I’m not a fan. The flavours tend to be weird and artificial tasting anyway, and if you do taste it you end up with a mouthful of waxy lip balm/gloss/stick. Mildly fragranced is okay, but nothing more.

It’s better than a gross flavor….but I wish it had no flavor because it’s the best for the lips

Love it! But only if it tastes nice, like some yummy food. But i have a Body Shop sheer lipstick that tastes almost bitter. Love the color on me but hate the taste!

No flavour for lipstick or gloss, but I don’t mind the concept of flavoured lipbalm, perhaps as more of a novelty item than something for actual use.

if a lip gloss is pretty and tastes good it pretty much makes it a holy grail for me
if a lip gloss shade name is something like “Strawberry” or “Watermelon” i’m disappointed if it doesn’t taste like it!

I like flavour in some lip products. I definitely don’t mind peppermint, because it can help with freshening your breath a bit. But only subtle flavour, nothing to overpowering and annoying.

Even products with no added “flavor” still have *some* taste to them, so I don’t really have an issue with it. As for any product making my food “taste” bad, a simple solution is to remove it *before* eating, which I do anyway, as I don’t want it to wear unevenly, or travel, and I find it extremely rude & obnoxious to leave lipstick stains on cloth napkins. Restaurants have to pay to replace those that are stained, which is an added expense, and every so often one slips by and is given to a patron, which is just gross.

I’m not extremely sensitive to taste & scent in my lip products to the point I have adverse reactions, but I often detect the taste of the oils & waxes used, which isn’t pleasant, either.

I hate flavored lip products. I don’t mind if they are scented (like the Maybelline lipsticks), but once I put them on my lips I don’t want to taste anything.
