Any fully-blown beauty addict is well aware of the liabilities that comes along with wearing lipstick. Not only does it occasionally feather onto your face (and even onto your teeth), it often fades much faster than you'd ever want—or expect it to.

That's precisely why we've singled out the lovely Toni Braxton here. At the 2013 Soul Train Awards last week, the sexy soul singer showed up with a faded matte mauve pout on purpose. We're guessing it's because she didn't want to be bothered with touch-ups throughout the event.

Thing is, matte lasts a lot longer than glossy formulations, so if you want your favorite lippie to last a lot longer, just remove the shine. After swiping on your lip color, blot your lips on a square of toilet tissue to take your lipstick down to a stain. This removes all of the excess product and moisture, leaving nothing behind but pure pigment that'll last for hours on end.
