The miracle of maracuja is here!

very handy: all mixed up

Things  have been busy in the tarte office! We’ve got our miracle of maracuja TSV on QVC tomorrow and everyone is prepping for the kick off at midnight! With all this energy buzzing around, I thought Jen’s mixed nail polish was a perfect example of our pretty, but slightly disjointed, harmony.

Jen used two Essie polishes to create the look, the lighter shade is called navigate her, and the darker is power clutch.

Fashion’s Night Out is Here!

Hello tartelettes!

Tonight is Fashion’s Night Out and tarte™ is thrilled to be a part of it! For the past three years this event has taken over New York City, drawing trendsetters, fashionistas, design junkies, and glamour girls—and guys—from across the nation to ring in New York Fashion Week. We’ll be participating in not one, but three events tonight.

First, between 7pm and 9pm EST, we’ll be at Sephora Times Square hanging out with True Blood actress Kristin Bauer, giving mini makeovers and raffling off tarte™ for True Blood™ packages. Those of you not in New York can enter our online raffle. Tweet out ‘tarte rocks #FNO’ and  link to this blog between now and 9pm EST and *you could be selected to win a tarte™ for True Blood™ prize package.

Then from 6pm to midnight EST we’re participating in QVC’s Fashion’s Night Out Experience Event, where you can meet us in person— the event will be held at 428 Broadway in Manhattan and is open to the public!  tarte fans will have the opportunity to get pretty pout makeovers with our Lipsurgence™ lip tints and lusters while learning how to create the perfect lip.

Can’t catch either of these in person? No worries, for the first time ever FNO is bringing the celebration online.  If you visit tarte.com tonight, between 6pm and 11pm EST and purchase a multiplEYE™ lash enhancer with the code FNO, you’ll get the multiplEYE™ primer and mascara FREE!

Plus, we’ll be live tweeting the entire evening, giving you an exclusive behind the scenes look at FNO tarte style. So if you haven’t already, follow us now at @tartecosemetics.

It’s going to be a fashion and beauty filled evening of glamour and fun and we can’t wait to see you there!

 

Xo,

Koryn

Shopping for a Cause

This past weekend the tarte team participated in Super Saturday 14, a one-of-a-kind designer sample sale, where all the proceeds go to the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund (OCRF). In addition to having a booth, Maureen Kelly appeared on QVC live from the event raising even more awareness. Even better all net proceeds from her show benefited OCRF! Despite the hot weather, our makeup stayed meltproof. We even had a few minutes to do a little shopping ourselves—all in the name of charity! We picked up an Alex Woo necklace, Alice + Olivia silk green pants, Brooks Brothers’ shirts and lots more! Check out our pictures below and find out how you can get involved here: http://www.ocrf.org/index.php

Holiday Curls from Calista Tools

Holidays, weekends, Mondays and every day: I’m a fan of curls! Big, bouncy, glamorous curls and beachy-waves, I’ll take it all! Dressed up or down, curls can be both polished and sexy. To be honest, I actually think I walk a little taller when my hair is Gisele-curled. Over the past 10 years I’ve tried every tool on the market (literally) & finally mastered my style with a BaByliss 1 ¼” curling iron…until now! During one of my recent trips to QVC with Maureen,  I was chatting with Maria McCool, owner and stylist of the chic Calista Salon. Being as curl obsessed as I am, she gave me the sneak peak of the yet-to-be-released Ion Hot Rollers. Throughout the years, Maria has featured some incredible hair products on QVC, but these Ion Hot Rollers are something else! Safe to say it was love at first sight and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on them. In the words of Mr. Trump, “YOU’RE FIRED (BaByliss)!”

Prior to Maria giving me the inside scoop, I was already a fan of her techniques and the salon. In fact, Monica, one of her stylists, cut my hair in the past—love her! So yesterday you can imagine how excited I was when a package arrived for me! And I couldn’t help but hit the blog to boast about them and my fabulous waves. The rollers exclusive launch will be on QVC tomorrow, 11/20 at 10:00pm EST. And believe me, you must tune in!

So, what makes these different than your average drugstore set you ask? Well, I am more than happy to share. Calista’s  Ion hot rollers use Creat Ion Technology which means that the actual plastic is created with 32 different minerals  that are baked together to create the outer shell (most iconic tools only coat the top layer of the curler). These minerals infuse the hair with shine, body, volume & fullness (check out my video on tarte TV for a demo!). The core of the curler houses a PTC heater which allows the entire roller to heat itself instead of sitting in a base with hot metal rods. Additionally, the set comes with 12 hot rollers, 6 of which are twice the length of a traditional roller. Translation: Long-haired girls rejoice because you can finally have a curler that will deliver a full curl root to tip.  I can go on all day about why every beauty aficionado needs these, but here’s just a few more reasons: no burnt fingers, no product lifetime, 3-minute heating time and most importantly quick & easy bouncy locks!

For more details and demos from the hair guru herself, watch QVC Saturday night at 10pm to see Maria. I’m sure you’ll end up checking out with more than just these curlers. While you’re at it stay tuned because Maureen is up on the Q right after Maria with some amazing tarte goodies.

Xo,

Kristin
