How to make Lipstick stay on for longer

Finding a lipstick that stays on from 9 to 5 will be much of a miracle for me. Despite of all the technological advancements today and huge claims of up to 12 hours of stay, cosmetic companies have still failed to fulfill the promise.
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
