I also battle really bad chapped lips from time to time. Burt's Bee's makes it worse for me. Regular chapstick is OK, but it just doesn't last (like for overnight). I never thought of using lanolin (you should be able to find Lasinoh and/or Purelan at your local grocery store or drug store near the baby supplies) but I'm sure it would be great. I have always used lanolin for diaper rash.
Back to the lips. . .this probably won't be very popular here, but it works! My dermatologist has recommended using an OTC 1% hydrocortisone cream. I buy a small tube of the store brand, and it works great. It stays on all night. . . I usually only use it at night, unless it's really bad. Don't get the lotion, though--what I use is more of a gel type cream.
