Tarte Spring '08

I'm always intrigued by what the wonderful ladies at Tarte will come up with next. Their new Spring '08 collection has just launched on and it's full of surprises!

First off, there is Infinite Glow ($30), which includes Tarte's best-selling Mineral Powder Bronzer in Park Avenue Princess, award-winning gel Cheek Stain in Tipsy and a moisturizing 24/7 Lip Sheer in May Flowers, all wrapped in a luxe faux croc compact for easy, on-the-go application. It basically has everything you need to tan, highlight and add rosy color in minutes. All of the products contain Tarte's trademark skinvigorating™ ingredients, including vitamins A, C and E, mineral pigments, jojoba seed oil and beeswax.

Next up is Double Dose ($21, 4 shades), a high-shine, colorful lip gloss with the added benefit of an infused superfruit vitamin complex. It claims to deliver a dual-powered dose of beauty and treatment. The inner berry boost is a T5™ concentrated pigment that mixes with the outer high shine gloss. The result is a rich color that helps rejuvenate your lips. The Tarte T5 Super Fruit Complex™ is a proprietary blend of the five most active superfruits: goji, acai, maracuja, acerola and pomegranate. The first blend of its kind, the T5 Super Fruit Complex™ is loaded with naturally occurring, antioxidant-rich nutrients and vitamins that have been known to deliver refining, antiaging and skin-restorative benefits with each application.

Tarte's cheek stains are what landed them on every beauty editor's list of top picks so it's not surprising that the ladies at Tarte have whipped up another pretty cheek stain to tempt the hearts of makeup addicts. Natural Swirl Cheek Stain ($28) is described as an all-natural swirled cheek stain that combines two universally flattering shades of their best-selling Natural Beauty Cheek Stain, infused with a proprietary T5 Super Fruit Complex™. I'm lemming this so badly but just can't justify it seeing as how I've barely made a dent in my Natural Cheek Stain but the good news is that Natural Swirl Cheek Stain looks like it's permanent!

Rejuvelash ($16) is declumping "lash exhilarator" that revives lashes while treating and protecting them from brittleness and breakage. It uses a blend of emulsifying agents in combination with Tarte's patented flexible bristle brush to gently eliminate clumps while delivering herbal hair restoratives with every application to improve the overall quality of your lashes.

And finally, Tarte has introduced several new shades of its Lock & Roll Creaseless Eyeshadow Duo ($17).
