Does the Mary Kay® Creme Lipstick contain fragrance?
No. It is fragrance-free, meaning no fragrance was added to the formula. The lipstick does have a scent, which is a natural characteristic of the new vanilla flavor ingredient. This concept is not new, as there are other Mary Kay® products that are fragrance-free yet also impart a scent. The most recent example is TimeWise® Targeted-Action® Eye Revitalizer, which contains a botanical extract that smells like citrus.
Why did Mary Kay change the formula to be fragrance-free?
We knew the fragrance that we were using in our lipstick somewhat dated our formula. Therefore, to modernize it, we felt it was best to go with the vanilla flavor that we use in our Mary Kay® NouriShine™ Lip Gloss. This also allows our lipstick and lip gloss to work together more harmoniously instead of having multiple scents and flavors on the lips at one time.
What is the difference between a fragrance and a flavor in a lip color product?
A flavor in a lip color product can provide both a taste as well as a scent for a more pleasant sensory experience. A fragrance is added to a product to specifically provide a characteristic scent and only to impart a pleasant scent, not to impart a taste.
How is the formula fragrance-free if I can smell the vanilla flavor?
Since the biological mechanism of taste involves both taste buds on the tongue and olfactory sensors in the nose, a flavor can provide both a taste as well as a scent or “smell” to a product.
