1.A bouquet of roses is beautiful that’s a given, but instead go for an arrangement with variety, personality and fun spring colors.
Well, if your mom is anything like mine- beautiful, fun, overall just your favorite person in the world, but completely stuck in a make-up time-warp, this Mother’s Day help her get back to the future tarte-style.
The four-piece Lip Couture set is the perfect gift for a lipstick-challenged mother like mine. It comes with a quartet of colors ranging from a totally now nude to a more recent red. And true to tarte form, the quilted purple packaging is pure chic-y goodness.
If mommy dearest has been a “maniac, maniac…” for 80s-eque eyeshadow since the Flashdance days, tarte has two solutions for you. The Spring Greening palette, a set of six vibrant lid hues and three pretty lipglosses, is a great way for her to transition into 21st-century eye color. With eyeshadow names like vibrant teal and golden lime, you can even trick her into thinking that she wasn’t completely off the mark with her dated make-up. The second peepers’ palette is the sleek and sophisticated Eye Couture, which has ten eyeshadow hues ranging from pretty pale pink to chic charcoal. Aw, Mama’s first smoky eye!
For the mom whose idea of make-up is a few swipes of cherry Chapstick and clear mascara (I mean, honestly, what is the point?), tarte’s Be Good to Your Mother (earth) is the perfect present. The set comes with a cute trio of lip sheers with SPF 15 and an adorable tote in signature tarte purple, so she can be granola-chic while hauling her soymilk and veggie burgers.
Bonus time! For purchases of $30 or more, tarte is offering free shipping.
Sunday is quickly approaching, but thankfully for you, tarte has all of the au naturale answers for your Mother’s Day queries.
Though I absolutely adore He of ruffled blouses, four-inch heels and perfectly coifed hair, this post is about beauty, not “The Beautiful One.” Sorry, Prince!
I bought Tarte’s Vanity Palette back in December and instantly fell in love with the little purple tube of Lights, Camera, Lashes! mascara. Since the day mama okay-ed make-up, I have been a total mascara player- flitting from one wand to another with no indication of settling down. Clinique’s Long Pretty Lashes? Wore it! Maybelline’s Great Lash ? Why, of course! Bare Escentuals Big Tease? Well, duh, the name speaks for itself.
I have spent too many years being the Karen Smith of mascara. You know, the first-cousin kissing, as stupid as she is slutty Mean Girl. Well, I am finally ready to give my heart to just one. Yep, you guessed it- Lights, Camera, Lashes! It’s dark and sultry, but leaves my lashes soft and flirty. That sounds like soulmate material to me. And the fact that the main ingredients are length, volume, curl and conditioning, not sulfates, parabens, dyes and fragrance is music to a contact-wearers’ ears…and eyes?
But don’t just take my word for it. Sephora.com boasts a whole slew of LCL fanatics. Prettygirl2990 proclaims that with The Purple One her “lash prayers were answered.”
And for just $18, you too can be lash-tastic!
Happy New Year everyone! I’m very excited because today I’m getting a visit from our fabulous board member (and my friend) Maurey, who I haven’t seen in almost 3 years. She’s going to stop by tarte HQ for a visit with everyone and then we get to have a nice catch-up dinner. Of course, it’ll be 16 degrees tonight, but I’m excited nonetheless. We’re both eagerly awaiting the day tarte expands to London, so I can visit her for a change. (Plus, I never pass up the opportunity to be in London!) -Alexis
So for the past 2 days on the news here in NYC it’s been nothing but coverage on the blizzard that’s about to hit us. I was skeptical that it would even happen but as Maria and I made our coffee run this morning we were pelted with chunks of hail. Now it’s snowing like crazy! If I was still in school I’d be hoping for a snow day and then spend the day sledding and drinking hot cocoa! Maybe the tarte girls will have an impromptu sledding break today?! -Erica
~On Wednesday night we had our annual tarte holiday party hosted by Maureen. It was an amazing time as always, this year we had a wine & cheese tasting theme with a cheese expert. Alexis (cheese-aholic) was in heaven and showed off all her amazing cheese knowledge and everyone else learned a lot and enjoyed themselves. Maureen and her husband Scott cooked an amazing dinner that everyone couldn’t stop raving about, followed by desserts galore! We really need to make this party a monthly event instead ofjust once a year.-erica
~For those of you who haven’t seen the posts on our board yet, this weekend we have two hour shows this Sunday on QVC. It is so exciting to be there, no matter how many times we’re on. Hopefully all of you guys can watch and support us…it’s always so great to know that our loyal tartelettes are pulling for us! Plus we are introducing some new items, and running a lot of great specials so tune in if you can! April 2, 2006 at 5am & 6pm ET! -maria
Good Housekeeping that will streamline my spring cleaning…but I’ll probably still top it off with some ice cream! -maria
