  • Elizabeth Arden lip products smell like crap too. My mom gives me all her lipsticks from because she can not stand the smell.....

  • How long are you keeping them? Any of the applicators that go straight onto your mouth then back into the tube need to be replaced about once every three months or bacteria starts to take over. That might be why! I like the Avon glosses but it isn't exactly a "sponge" tip. They don't seem to have any scent that I've noticed though! The Mark ones are my favorite! if you want to see what I'm talking about by the tip. :)
