girl crush: connie britton

The moment Connie Britton appeared on-screen in Friday Night Lights, she walked straight into our hearts. (And if you haven’t seen this show, tartelettes, then run – don’t walk – to your nearest Netflix subscription and devour the whole delicious, feel-good series at once.) As Tami Taylor, Connie played the type of woman we always aspired to be: whip-smart, funny, graceful, and – above all – one that never took any crap from anyone. (And that hair!) So, imagine our pleasure in discovering that Connie herself is as charming and feisty as the woman she played on the silver screen.

Now, she’s back in another Southern-inflected role in Nashville, a show that focused on the drama of a different intense world far from football – country music. We’ll be watching and rooting on our favorite sassy gal! Will you?

the tarte team’s favorite halloween movies

The summer blockbuster may be Hollywood’s working goal, but if you ask us, fall is truly the time to sit back and watch some good movies. Starting this month with Halloween and moving right through to December, it’s time for some great, and frightening, cinema.

To kick off the fall movie season we polled the tarte team on their favorite Halloween movies. Did yours make the list?

girl crush: alison brie

Very few actresses will ever star on a hit TV show, very few actresses will ever work on possibly one of the greatest drama series of all time, fewer still will be revered at both the Emmys and Comic Con, or threaten Joe McHale with paintballs…twice. More >

2 Broke Girls and a Lot of envy

Smart and snarky, we’ve loved Kat Dennings since the moment she stole the spotlight from Samantha on Sex and the City; then she convinced us that Michael Cera was swoon-worthy in Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist, and we were psyched when we found out she’d scored her own show: 2 Broke Girls.  So just imagine how exited we were to learn that she loves us back.

We recently heard from 2 Broke Girls makeup artist Patty Bunch that Kat is a huge fan of tarte and uses our LipSurgence™ matte lip tint on and off set.

“I’ve received so many calls and e-mails on what lipstick I’m using on Kat Dennings on “2 Broke Girls,” Patty told us in an email. The answer: our matte lip tint in envy!

So, if you’ve ever wondered what our matte shades look like on, just tune into Kat’s hysterical sitcom every Monday night at 8:30pm EST on CBS to see them in action. And pick up some envy today!

Inspired by the hit show, the tarte™ for True Blood™ limited-edition palette is packed with 17 new eyeshadows to take you from dawn to dusk, and well into the night. Open after dark: buried in a pullout drawer is a full-size emphasEYES™ aqua-gel eyeliner in black, a deluxe lights, camera, lashes! clinically-proven natural mascara and a deluxe  lifted™ natural eye primer with Firmitol™.

Want more? We also have a lust-worthy natural cheek stain and LipSurgence™ natural lip tint in shimmering red! Now there’s something for you to really sink your teeth into.  And be sure tune in to True Blood™ Sundays at 9 pm on HBO®.

Will you be turned?

Celebrity makeup artist Maria Maio gave actress Susie Essman the perfect look using her favorite tarte goodies for hidden camera TV show Make My Day. Since we’re huge fans of her hilarious, out-spoken character ‘Sussie’ in HBO’s Curb Your Enthusiasm, we’ll definitely be tuning in to her latest project! Get this glowing day look with the vanity available at QVC today. Kudos to Maria—we love it!

I just saw a commerical for the “Full House” complete series dvd collection. This will definitely be going on my Christmas list. I loved watching “Full House” going up and I’m sure I’ve seen every episode but who could resist watching them all over again! -Erica

Prison Break Returns

08/29/07

~I’m anxiously awaiting the return of one of my favorite series of all time, Prison Break. I’m literally counting down the days until September 17th – it feels like an eternity since last season ended and I’ve been pining for a new episode ever since! Besides being a great show I look forward to having Monday night quality time with Rich – usually one of us has to compromise while the other watches sports (Rich) or reruns of Law & Order (me). This is one show that we are both really into and it’s become a fun tradition to make dinner and watch the show together every Monday night! -maria
