Plus, a sneak preview of the 8th World Wonder QVC exclusive
Happy Green Monday readers! Last week Stef and I had an exceptionally green and fabulous Thursday when we had the pleasure of meeting Maureen Kelly, the heart behind tarte! This genuinely nice and naturally gorgeous lady is the force behind one of our very favorite eco-friendly beauty brands.
If I was writing this for a magazine in the 80s, now is the part where I would tell you Maureen is a women that proves “we can have it all” – an education, husband, kids, friends, and a CEO position in a flourishing company. As wise women in 2011, we know that of course, we can have it all. But, you need the drive, determination and smarts to go out and get it all.
The inspiring Maureen did just that. Once upon a time, 1999 to be exact, Maureen was a beauty obsessed gal with a desire to go green. Sadly, most of the environmentally friendly, cruelty-free products on the shelves back than where far from glamorous. When she found herself embarrassed to pull out her green (but dowdy) cosmetics in front of others, Maureen decided to do something about it!
Determined to develop a line that would “prove that glamor can be good for you” and the earth, Maureen sourced high-performance, natural ingredients to create skin nourishing, high impact makeup. Just over 10 years later, tarte has established itself at the pinnacle of green brands with it’s unique mixture of skin pampering formulas, chic and eco-friendly packaging and a range of colors and products that can take you from natural to full-on glam.
We were thrilled to spend some time chatting with the inspiring lady and her right hand woman, Director of Public Relations, Candace. The dynamic duo were in town for tarte’s weekend QVC special, Buzz on the Red Carpet. They also managed to sneak in some time to meet with a few Los Angeles beauty artists and bloggers to share some of the upcoming products from tarte for spring/summer 2011.
We lost all composure in front of these impressive business women when we got an up-close and hands-on look at some of these amazing new items, especially the soon to be QVC exclusive 8th World Wonder kit.
Squee! Seriously, it was all Stef could do, not to pick up this collection and run out the door! We’ll be taking a look at this affordable and fabulous set in more depth next week.
Lucky you, you can spend some time with Maureen too! See what’s new from tarte and available exclusively on QVC when Maureen visits America’s favorite home shopping option.
