We were each blindly assigned a lip wear that we couldn't reapply until the end of the day. We also couldn't check ourselves out in the mirror.

The lipsticks were put through three ~Olympic~ events to see which one would last the longest: Drink some coffee, eat a taco, and kiss a hottie.

Candace's color got on her hands and meal, while Freddie's lip color left a few specks on the tortilla.
