Fall 2010: Tarte Celebrates Ten Years With a Limited Edition Collection Aptly Called TEN…

One of my all time FAVE brands, Tarte is celebrating TEN YEARS in the beauty biz!! Tarte is known for it’s skin friendly ingredients without the harmful addition of parabens, petroleum, and pthalates. They have launched several new products including a limited-edition TEN natural cheek stain and TEN collector’s shadow palette (which is exclusive to Sephora), as well as a radiant & rested luminous complexion collection (also exclusive to Sephora).  They have also developed a matte version of their best-selling LipSurgence natural lip stains (6 shades in all).  To extend the emphasEYES collection, they ALSO created emphasEYES aqua-gel eyeliners in 8 shades (composed of rich mineral pigments in a 50% water concentration).  Whew!  That’s plenty, right??  I absolutely LOVE the cheekstain, palette and AquaGel Liners. The packaging alone makes this one of the cutest limited edition keepers ever.

The Rundowm:

  • TEN Natural Cheek Stain One of my all time FAVES.  This best seller is all new with TEN, a limited-edition sleek, gold studded tube in tarte’s signature dark purple and a shimmering bright pink blush shade to invigorate all complexions. Powered by the t5 super fruit complex™ this nutrient rich natural cheek stain fights free radical damage while treating skin with antioxidants, vitamins and minerals.Available at Sephora for $30.
  • TEN Limited Edition Collector’s Palette With all the effervescence of our favorite champagne, TEN limited-edition collector’s palette celebrates tarte’s milestone: a decade of high-performance natural beauty. Overflowing withTEN limited-edition shadows, a limited-edition double-ended eyeliner and a full size eyeshadow brush, this reusable palette is a true collector’s item filled with endless looks from soft and smoky to earthy and jewel-toned. The shades on the top row, from left to right are: matte soft pink, shimmering silver gray, soft shimmering gold, vibrant shimmering copper, vivid shimmering amethyst.

  • LipSurgence Natural Matte Lip Stains Just like the original and best-selling natural lip stains, LipSurgence natural matte lip stains are peppermint-infused and glide on smooth for a rich matte finish that will stay all day. Each of the six matte shades boasts the high pigment concentration we love from matte lipsticks, but unlike drying lipsticks these stains are infused with our high-performance natural LipSurgence™ technology which is clinically proven to increase moisture content by an astonishing 6000% after 28 days. Available in 6 shades: lucky (light pink), hope (warm rose), lively (hot pink), envy (mauve berry), fiery (true red) and exposed (nude). Available at Sephora for $24.
  • EmphasEYES Aqua-Gel Liner This revolutionary emphasEYES aqua-gel eyeliner captures the high pigment concentration and staying power of a gel pot in an effortless pencil, no brush required! Even more unique is the proprietary formula which encapsulates rich mineral pigments in a 50% water concentration. By a process of hydrous pigmentation, cooling and refreshing pure water absorbs into skin to hydrate and replenish the delicate eye area, leaving behind an intense, long-wearing and pigment-rich color. Fortified with vitamin E, cucumber and aloe this soothing aqua-gel eyeliner maintains moisture balance in the skin while treating with healing free radical fighters. Available in 8 shades: black, brown, navy, charcoal, plum, green, teal, and bronze. Available at Sephora for $18.
