Tarte Summer Must Haves!



About Tarte:
"Before I started tarte out of my one bedroom apartment in 1999, I was a total beauty addict like you but quickly became frustrated when I couldn’t find healthy, nourishing cosmetics – everything I found was full of unhealthy, synthetic formulas. And whether it was department store makeup or one of the very few ‘healthy’ makeup lines I was able to find, the packaging was so unglamorous I hardly wanted to buy it let alone take it out of my purse in public!

So I set out to create a line that would prove that glamour can be good for you by pioneering the use of
high-performance naturals™ that bring clinical results to the everyday woman! Nine years later tarte is the leader in earth engineered™ beauty offering the widest selection of natural cosmetics full of skinvigorating™ ingredients including our proprietary t5 super fruit complex™ (a blend of the five most active, free-radical fighting super fruits), vitamins, minerals and natural fruit and plant extracts. But it’s not just about what’s in our healthy formulas; it’s what’s not in them that really sets us apart! We are 100% free of parabens, petro-chemicals, phthalates, sulfates and synthetic fragrances, just to name a few.

We don’t just stop at the formulas – our chic, runway-inspired cases and compacts are more then just pretty packaging. We’re helping reduce green house gas emissions one mascara at a time by creating components that are made from
recyclable or post-consumer recycled material and can often be re-used to help reduce environmental waste. We like to say we’re doing the ‘leg work’ to help all of us minimize our carbon footprints.

I hope you enjoy your tarte purchase and remember:
be
green, be smart, be tarte!"

Natural Lip Stain & Lip-Enhancing Lipgloss

Lock & Roll
Creaseless Cream & Powder Shadow Duo
$17.00
Shade:
Sandstone: matte nude cream/shimmery bone powder
Unlike traditional cream shadows that crease and smudge, this new twist on the makeup artist trick is waterproof and creaseproof. The matching loose shadow in a roller ball applicator easily glides over cream shadow to lock color in and add luminosity so color lasts all day.

Natural Cheek Stain
$30.00
Shade: Eco-Cheek
(coral with a touch of shimmer)
Achieve long lasting, buildable color with a completely “goof proof” application – unlike traditional stains these will not streak, leak or drip. It also gives you about 15-20 seconds of blending time before it dries down for a natural finish that’s pure perfection! Cheek stains are free of alcohol so they won't dry out your skin and oil so they won't clog your pores. They are infused with the tarte t5 super fruit complex™ for a healthy dose of natural antioxidants.
The tarte t5 super fruit complex™ is a proprietary blend of the five most active superfruits: goji, acai, maracuja, acerola and pomegranate. The first blend of its kind, the t5 super fruit complex™ is loaded with naturally occurring, antioxidant rich nutrients and vitamins that have been known to deliver refining, anti-aging and skin-restorative benefits with each application.
