So then, about some time ago, I discovered this little trick that actually DOES help the lipstick stay on for longer. I shared it with a few friends and they said it's a pretty old trick, but hey, I still didn't know about it. So here's how it works.
First, apply the lipstick of your choice. I chose red.
Then, lightly dust some talcum powder all over the lips.
And finally, reapply the lipstick generously and voila! It ain't goin anywhere for at least 8 hours straight.
This trick works on cream and matte lipsticks. Staying power may differ according to lipstick formulation. But one thing's for sure, it does make a difference. Try it out...xoxo
