The smell will be not at all irritating for you if you like the smell of toffees.

Also, you can use some sort of lip liners to make it look more pigmented and long-lasting.
The staying power of these lip creams is approximately 7-8 hours while you take light snacks and drinks in between. After that, you may require some slight touch-ups if you are wearing it for some occasion.
