I fell in LOVE with Tarte long before most people had ever heard of Tarte. I was living in New York City and my “day job” was working in cosmetics at the glamorous Henri Bendel on 5th Ave. My favorite part about working there was getting the inside scoop on designers and brands that were launching before anyone else knew about them. The CEO/Founder of Tarte, Maureen Kelly, is this adorable, intelligent and vibrant woman who inspired me to go above and beyond. Although I don’t sell cosmetics anymore, I secretly have always wanted to be a tartlette.
The reason I am so passionate about Tarte is because they put so much TLC into each and every product. Tarte is healthy, eco-chic beauty that uses skinvigorating ingredients such as superfruits, plant extracts, minerals, vitamins essential oils etc. All of their products are formulated without parabens, mineral oil, phthalates, sodium lauryl sulfate, triclosan, synthetic fragrances and gluten, just to name a few.

Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes Natural Mascara 8 of 9
Every time I stray away from this mascara I ALWAYS find my way back to it. What I love most about it is how conditioning and gentle it is on my lashes, yet I still get the lengthening, volumizing and curling that I would from any old mascara.
