Otter Obsession – Tarte Cosmetics

We love makeup, skincare and everything in-between. The catch is that we look for something that doesn’t scream makeup and is not full of chemicals either.

Cue tarte cosmetics.

Some of the MD Team have been using tarte products for awhile, so we can say these have been stamped with the Otter Approval.

Before we get to those items, here’s a message from tarte’s founder and CEO, Maureen Kelly.

Before I started tarte out of my one bedroom apartment in 1999, I was a total beauty addict like you, but I quickly became frustrated when I couldn’t find pure, powerful cosmetics.

Everything I found was full of unhealthy, icky stuff, and whether it was from a department store or one of the very few ‘healthy’ makeup lines I could find, the packaging was so unglamorous that I hardly wanted to buy it let alone take it out of my purse in public!

Here’s some more from Maureen.

“All of our products are formulated without parabens, mineral oil, phthalates, sodium lauryl sulfate, triclosan, synthetic fragrances and gluten, just to name a few.”

“Ingredients are absolutely important to me, but so are formulas that perform. We call it tarte 12-hour power™, but you’ll just notice it lasts. Not to mention that we’ve got budgeproof, waterproof, sweatproof, SPF and formulas with truly compelling consumer panel claims.”

Knowing all of this, you have an idea why this brand is our latest Otter Obsession.
