Full disclosure: I wear lots of lipstick and the lipstick that I do wear is usually very dark in colour (24 velvet matt from essence at R49.95). I also love wine, loads of it. The tricky thing was always to keep my lipstick game strong while indulging in my favorite wines… I have no favorite, I like them all!
I chose to try a seriously old school technique, which of course made its way onto Pinterest, that promises to make my lipstick last all the way through my morning latte. TBH, it works pretty well… but considering no one really has translucent powder in their makeup kit, it seems like more effort than it’s worth. I have found that simple old baby powder works just as well, but you have to tap your mouth quite a few times to ensure that all the powder it tapped in.
