Earth Month Day 21: Tarte Cosmetics

tarteI’ve been chatting with my friends about their favorite eco-friendly brands. My beauty blogging pal Amber, aka the Beauty Blogging Junkie, told me she can always count on Tarte Cosmetics. I love the brand as well. Their cheek stain is my go-to blush for summer. I just smudge some Blushing Bride on my cheekbones, coat my lashes with their waterproof masacara, apply some Borba lipgloss and I’m set for the day. But I never realized how eco-friendly Tarte was until I talked to Amber. Here’s what she had to say:

“When it comes to natural makeup in particular, I’ve found that more often than not, you negotiate performance for pronounceable ingredients. My policy on negotiating makeup performance is, obv, the same as the U.S.’ policy on negotiating with terrorists.

However, I can always count on eco-friendly brand Tarte. All their products are free of sulfates, parabens and synthetic fragrances and their packaging is made from either recyclable or post-consumer recycled material. I feel I never have to compromise on anything—including packaging. Theirs ranks in my top five fave list for cute, cleverly packaged items. The brand has even partnered with the Sustainable Amazon Partnership and donates proceeds from some of their products to help preserve the Amazon Rainforest through forest conservation. Check out their Health Couture collection in particular.”

Oh, and Tarte is offering free shipping on all orders for Earth Month!
