Handlebar touch-up paint

I've managed to get several scratches and scrapes on my handlebars. What paint is recommended to touch them up? Thanks.

For the cheaper bastard in my I usually just hit a minor scratch with a Sharpie. As long as you are not scrubbing it really hard when you wash the bike it should last a while.
