Welcome to Day Five of my Earth Week Focus! Today's giveaway is sponsored by Tarte Cosmetics, whose natural line of make up and trendy packaging have made them a favorite of mine. Tarte has a long-standing relationship with many eco-conscious charitable organizations, including the Sustainable Amazon Partnership (SAP). With the purchase of every tarte product that has our new t5 super fruit complex™, customers will be helping to preserve the Amazon Rainforest through forest conservation, improved living conditions and educational opportunities for communities in Brazil. We’re supporting the Sustainable Amazon Partnership (SAP), a public and private collaboration to promote lasting sustainable management of the Brazilian Amazon Rainforest. We’re using sustainable organic acai in t5™ and will be making contributions to SAP throughout the year.
Tarte's line of nourishing cosmetics recently introduced a range of products that contain Amazonian Clay, a hydrating and reparative ingredient. The Gifted Amazonian Clay Smart Mascara is one of those products, and is also today's giveaway item!
From the press release: This amazing mascara delivers a 406% increase in lash volume and long-term reparative, rebuilding, and strengthening benefits with each swipe giving you instant results and better lash health. Just as it intuitively restores hydration and texture in skin, Amazonian clay intuitively hydrates and replenishes dry and brittle lashes to prevent fallout.
I have wanted to try some of their Amazonian Clay products since I first started hearing about them, particularly the 12-Hour Blush. That product retails for $25.00, so when I saw the QVC Exclusive last month called the 8th Wonder of the World Best of Amazon set (below) offered as a "Today's Special Value" for just $48.36, I couldn't pass it up. I have a love-hate relationship with those QVC eMail alerts I get--or maybe it's my credit card that has the "hate" part of the relationship! At any rate, I am very pleased with all of the products that were included.
If you're a Tarte fan or have been interested in trying their products, I wanted to let you know about an Earth Day special on their site. Through April 25, they're offering a 25% discount site-wide, and also free shipping over $40.00. The code is EARTHDAY2011.
