Important Update

Dear tartelettes,

Due to Hurricane Sandy the tarte offices and customer service line will be closed from October 29th until further notice. We will reopen as soon as it is safe to do so. If you need to contact us in the meantime, please send an email to info@tartecosmetics.com, and we will answer it as soon as possible.

Our thoughts are with those who have been affected by the storm. Please stay safe tartelettes.

xo,
the tarte team

fall color inspiration: navy blue

It goes with everything, it’s equally flattering, and it’s unexpected – like these adorable pieces below. More >

fall’s best accessories

The Fall 2012 runways saw a welcomed return to the sort of luxe glamour that had been eschewed for several seasons in favor of barely-there etherealism. We’re talking chic drama in the form of sensuous fabrics, old-Hollywood mystique, animal prints,  sleek patterns, boldness – all worn at once, the more the better! Accessories, especially, received particular attention, making it even easier to pull these trends into your looks without revamping your entire wardrobe. Here, a few of our favorite trends in fall accessories. Glam it up, tartelettes! More >
