Tarte – New Cosmetics Find!

Tarte
Because of my concerns about cosmetics in this country (Please see myToxic Cosmetics Post) I’m on a constant search for non-toxic products. I sometimes get lucky, and when I do, I love to share what I’ve discovered.

Tarte cosmetics was founded by Maureen Kelly in 1999 because, like us, she was frustrated that she could not find healthy, natural cosmetics.

The line is made without the use of Parabens, Phthalates, Fragrances, Gluten and Petroleum. Of course, they are also not tested on animals!

I use the Smooth Operator Tinted Moisturizer (SPF 20) and the Mascara so I can only speak to those two items, but they are really great. Even on those days when the kids wake up early, and I couldn’t get to sleep the night before, the tinted moisturizer helps me look refreshed. I just ordered the eye liner, so I’ll let you know how it is after I use it. (Warning – all Tarte Cosmetics I have used have gotten good reviews from the EWG’s Skin Deep website. The only one that has been flagged is the Eye Liner in the color Olympia, and their Mineral Bronzer, Hotel Heiress).
