holiday shop and share with tarte

Sometimes holiday shopping can lose a bit of it’s luster when you find yourself with too many people on your list and a budget that can’t match it. tarte to the rescue! I love giving gifts I would want to receive myself and tarte has read my mind when creating two fabulous, limited edition sets that can be divided up, mixed and matched or added to your own vanity.

The THREE CARATS natural cheek stain set spreads a little bling with silver, jewel-encrusted tubes. Infused with the t5 super fruit complex of anti-oxidants and vitamins, the long-lasting tints are made without parabens, pthalates, sulfates, or petrochemicals and are oil, gluten and glycol free. Naturally scented with cassis, the holiday trio includes BRILLIANT, a shimmering champagne, PRINCESS, a shimmering rose and CUSHION, a shimmering deep apricot. The shimmer is subtle, and these are perfect for all skin tones. At $25 for the set (they retail for $54), they’re fabulous together or grab some mini organza bags and give them individually (making them $8.33 a piece).

Even more versatile gifting can be found in the CROWN JEWELS lipgloss set. Presented with three boxes you can gift together or separate to share. Like the cheek stains, the lipglosses are free of all the worst offenders which means you won’t ingest any of the petrochemicals and other harsh toxins found in less green lippies. The sets include GLITTERING GREEN GODDESS, with sheer glosses in shades of pink, peach and beige, TWINKLING TRENDSETTERS includes shades of pink from strawberry and melon to fuchsia and the sparkling DAZZLING DIVAS includes warmer shades like coral, orchid, gold and violet. Each set contains five glosses, so at $39 (a $160 retail value) you can give them all, split them up into three fabulous gifts at $13 a piece, or mix and match!

The sets are available at,and at Sephora in stores and online. xo alex.
