Have you entered my blogiversary? Five great sponsors with five wonderful gifts to celebrate my five years of blogging! Enter here!

Thanks to Kathrin of Shop.School.Sleep. I have a new obsession - Tarte LipSurgence Natural Matte Lip Tint in the shade Fiery. Last week she let me use hers for my company holiday party and I loved the way it looked on me and received lots of compliments. So last weekend I headed to Ulta to buy the lipstick for myself.

I am a bit shy wearing such a bold color but decided to go all in and paired the lipstick with a finger wave hairdo for a '20s look. 

If you're looking for a nice red lip color, I highly suggest this one. Both Kathrin and I wore it (hers is mixed with a similar pink shade) and as you can see we're two very different skin tones but it still works for both of us. Which means it has mass appeal for wearers!

This lip tint stays on for hours! This is Kathrin and I after wearing it for quite some time. Grated the lighting isn't the brightest but you can see it's still on.

I bought my Tarte Lip Tint at Ulta because I had a 20% off coupon but you can get it at most places that carry mid-level cosmetics brands and it retails for about $25 everywhere.

I tried a different color, but it really does stay on foreverrr. Now I have the urge to get that bad boy out.

Your 20's hair looks fantastic! Perfect with the bold lip.

Ahhh, I just don't feel like I can pull that off. But I want to. So maybe I'll get it to try anyway! ;)

Looks gorgeous on you, girl!

Pretty color! I've never worn red before. I'm terrified. Haha! How did it feel on? I hate lipstick because of the stickiness, but I love stains.

Ok, I got the same Tarte stick but in a nude color in my Birchbox a couple of months ago. It looked terrible on me, but it did last a long time. I think a darker/brighter shade would have been better like yours. It def pops!
