If you’re like us, you’re ob-sessed with Instagram (shameless plug: check us out @tartecosmetics for insider pics and behind-the-scenes shots)—we admit it, we even check it before our morning latte! So you can imagine how delighted we were when we stumbled on this genius instagram idea. Meet casetagram, a site that lets you design your own iphone, ipad, or smartphone case using your own Instagram account. You pick it, they print it. Talk about a one-of-a-kind; the options are endless!

what does your lipstick say about you…?

Ever hear of the lipstick index? It’s the theory that lipstick is an economic barometer. Hmmm, cosmetics predicting finance… maybe. But one thing we know for sure is that the way you apply your lipstick can predict key personality traits.

Need proof? Reach into your bag, pull out your lipstick and compare it’s tip to the seven most common shapes of used lipsticks, which are listed below. Then let us know how closely your personality matches up!

 

One steep angle: The Power Broker

She is self-confident, well-balanced, conscientious, and has a love for detail. With her drive and ingenuity, she gets over every hurdle. She has a perfect memory, doesn’t bear grudges, and is always the center of attention in her circle of friends. In her life, everything always goes steeply upwards, just like the shape of her lipstick. So she is not the type of woman whose place is in the kitchen – nobody can control her.

6 Great Cyber Monday Deals

 

I love a good bargain, and seeing the letters S. A. L. E. hanging in store windows makes my blood rush. Still, I’ve never been the type to get out of bed before dawn and battle the notoriously aggressive Black Friday crowds. Instead I spend Thanksgiving weekend plotting a Cyber Monday offense attack. As more online boutiques begin to throw their “free shipping” hats in the ring, the deals continue to get better. Below are six of the best internet bargains a girl can find.

1.  Amazon.com

This online emporium has so many incredible deals going on right now I can’t even list them all. Instead, I suggest you double-check your gift list and head straight to their site.

2. Jewelista.com

The cyber destination “where fashion discovers jewelry” is offering 20% off anything on the site between 11am and 3pm EST. Oh yeah, and they’re throwing in free shipping.

3. Gilt.com

The mega discount site will be launching brand new sales every three hours in all of their stores between noon and 9pm EST—plus their offering doorbusters for at least 70% off each round as well. If you’re not a member, perhaps you should look in to it.

4. Joesjeans.com

Is there anything better then a brand new pair of blue jeans? The denim purveyors are offering 30% off their entire site.

5. Aeropostale.com

With graphic Ts starting at $4 and outerwear at $15, you can afford to stock up for every kind of winter weather scenario possible.

6. tarte.com

Saving the best for last: We’re offering up to $30 off, plus a full-size free gift, plus free shipping on orders $40 or more!

Get bronzed with tarte!


With tarte’s natural line of bronzing products there is no excuse to step out with a see through complexion during the summertime. Remember, there is no such thing as a healthy suntan so if you’re looking for products that give instant faux glow results while leaving your skin looking and feeling gorgeous, you’ve come to the right place. As a self proclaimed reformed sun worshiper, I’m conscious of skin-cancer risks but I still love the way my skin looks tan so whenever there is a new bronzing product being passed around the office- I’m always the first to try. Here is my expert advice on how to get an allover gorgeous glow without the harmful rays. My favorite everyday summer product is tarte’s smooth operator™ Amazonian clay finishing powder in bronze. This lightweight product mattifies my skin (since it tends to get oily after hours in sun) and gives me a gorgeous natural bronzed glow with every application. Love that! I also rely on tarte’s glam gams to transform my pale stems to bronzed and beautiful; giving me the confidence I need to step out on a hot summer night.

 

What tarte product do you rely on for a natural summer glow?
