I picked up this Max Factor felt tip-style lipstain on a 3 for 2. The marketing promises that it "permeates the upper layers of the lips" (umm...!?) to create "kissproof" colour.

built up layer.
So, honestly, I would not buy this again. I'll keep wearing it until it's used (or more likely dries up), but I have actually had more success with the cheaper, similar Maybelline Colour Sensational Lipstains. Poor show, Max Factor.
On a brighter note, though: BONUS ROUND of What I'm Wearing! I'm wearing this, because the sun is out and that means it's springtime, temperature be damned. And what could be more springlike than pretty pinks and greens and yellows? Nothing, that's what.
This picture has been Instagrammed to death because the light source was behind me. Sorry not sorry.
