refill is perfect for pockets

So I bought these, and one full sized lipstick.
You pretty much can use just the refill and it\’s much cheaper than buying the full one for the applicator.
I don\’t feel you need the applicator if you\’re not a collector or love packaging. Just buy the refill.
The formula is fantastic, smooth, opaque and non drying. I didn\’t notice any patchiness and had to reapply after going for lunch with friends (but we went for ramen, so I\’m not surprised). Sometimes for workouts I wear mascara and lipstick only and this lasted really well through that as well.
