I realize I've already gushed over Becca Ultimate Matte Lip Colour because the shade Aurora is the bestest matte orange-red all and sundry could ever hope to find, but today, I found a new reason to profess my love for it.

This morning, I applied it and put it in my makeup bag. Around 3pm, I ran to meet an out-of-town friend for a quick catch-up, and when I was in the cab, I realized I should probably touch up my lips. But when I looked in the mirror, they were virtually identical to how they looked this morning after the color was freshly applied. I almost said something to the driver about it, but then he said, "Look! That's a cop cab!" And we got into a discussion about how some taxis are driven by plain-clothes police and they have a siren instead of a horn.

I was sure I'd have to reapply on the way back to the office after repeatedly putting my lips on a drinking glass and, you know, drinking. But slap my croissant and call me Sparky, it was still looking lovely!

When I got back, I snapped this picture--I call this my Slightly Nervous-Looking Sexy Batwing Sweater Selfie pose--to prove it.

And I gotta tell ya: my lips don't feel dry or icky. Becca Ultimate Matte Lip Colour may just be my favorite long-wearing lip color.
