The Anointing of Jesus

It is ONLY JOHN who tells us that the woman who anointed Jesus' FEET was Mary the sister of Lazarus. ONLY LUKE tells us that she was a sinner (but does not name her) and that she bathes his FEET with her tears and wipes them with her hair and then kisses and anoints his FEET with the ointment.
MATTHEW and MARK tell us that she anoints Jesus' HEAD but do not name her, nor do they tell us that she was a sinner.
Nowhere are we told that she is Mary Magdalene. Also Nowhere are we told that Mary Magdalene was a "prostitute".
