diy holiday: bow & go

For this year’s “Baby, it’s bold outside” holiday collection, the tarte creative team designed each product box to mimic beautiful, rich, colorful wrapping paper. The goal was to not only save our tartelettes time and money on wrapping, but also to be environmentally conscience. We even printed a “to & from” gift tag to the back of each box!  All you have to do is add a bow and give it to the lucky gift recipient! More >

holiday gift guide: urban muse

One of our favorite rock & roll divas, Kim Schifino (the female half of the indie dance duo Matt & Kim) is a fearless, stylish and hilarious tartelette! Check out #MKrealtalk to see what we mean. She also lives by a cruelty-free philosophy, so when it came time to plan Matt & Kim’s Fall 2012 Lightning Tour, the duo arranged to host that city’s no-kill animal shelter in the concert venue’s lobby. This gave concert-goers the opportunity to learn how they can help keep their community a no-kill area. We’re very proud to call her a tartelette — but not too proud to snoop through her holiday gift list!
