Rimmel 1000 kisses lip pen in timeless tango

On my nails I am wearing Barry M's Bright Purple with Max Factor's Fantasy Fire layered on top

I recently purchased Rimmel's 1000 kisses lip pen in 120 Timeless Tango when on a shopping trip to Oxford Street from one of the Boots stores. At the time they had a £2 off most Rimmel cosmetics deal, so this was reduced from £6.99 to a more reasonable £4.99. As for range of shades there were quite a few, but this one in particular stood out to me (although I'm really looking into 'Nothing but Nude' and 'Endless Blossom', nude and pale pink shades.) It was actually the last one in the whole shop, so I have a lucky feeling about it.

The colour is way more outrageous than I usually go for, but I like it nonetheless. It makes my complexion look very Snow White, with pale skin, dark hair and bright red lips. I think red lips are empowering, they make you feel stylish (though sometimes self-conscious)..

The formulation of the product is perfectly reasonable, the aapplication being easy, as if you were colouring in your lips with a thick, felt-tip pen. However, I do find that the product can wear quite easy (especially when eating/drinking) and can go quite patchy, with some areas of a more intense shade than others.
The moisturising balm on the end is an absolute godsend. Lip stains and pens are notorious for drying out your lips very quickly, yet the balm makes the drying effect delay and gives a nice, glossy finish.

Have you tried out any lip pens? What were your thoughts on them?
