9:00 A.M. Apply one coat of Infinite Berry after breakfast.

10:00 A.M Face-melting temperatures in the subway? Ha! Arrive at work, gloss intact.

12:10 P.M. Turkey sandwich with hummus, four apricots, one glass of water. Lipcolor fades to a nice rosy pink; lips starting to feel dry.

4:00 P.M. Apply lip balm. The color fades a little more, but still noticeable.

8:00 P.M. The pink shade is almost gone. Regular facial soap washes off the last trace.
