The Artis Brush Cleansing Foam dispenses as bubbly foam, which coats each fibre/hair. The Artis formula cleans and sanitizes without the use of alcohol, which can harm brush fibers.

Tata Harper and Maiyet Partner For Summer 2016

Tata Harper and Maiyet have collaborated for Summer 2016 to continue to set a new standard of quality with the launch of a 100% organic t-shirt locally produced in L.A. and their “Kiss Me I’m Nontoxic” campaign. What could be better for summer than a super cute, lightweight t-shirt, where all the proceeds are donated to charity?

Tata said of the collaboration: “We are both luxury brands & have both raised the standards for the way luxury brands do business by taking on the challenge of sourcing ethically & using sustainable materials.”

The partnership came together in support of the Breast Cancer Fund’s Campaign for Safe Cosmetics, because they believe you deserve quality products made with real ingredients by real people … so that you look really cute. Tata Harper and Maiyet will donate $30 to the Breast Cancer Fund's Campaign for Safe Cosmetics from the sale of each t-shirt.

Together, they are raising awareness and donations for the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics with the sale and promotion of these shirts. This important foundation advocates for legislation and company policy to protect our health and eradicate harmful ingredients from personal care products.

In addition to their current actions to raise awareness and funds, Tata Harper and Maiyet will contribute an additional donation of $1 for every post of Instagram tagged with #kissmeimnontoxic through August 31st that features the t-shirt or brand products.

Fragrance Of The Month February 2016

Hello Beautynistas and Suavies! We heard you, we read all of your emails, we received your messages -- so, back by your request is The Makeup Examiner’s Fragrance Of The Month! Just in time for the month of amore, we have two amazing scents that are perfect to celebrate Valentine’s Day.

For the ladies we present Tata Harper Love Potion (5 ml - $40.00). Released in 2015 Love Potion has a Floral Fruity theme. Love Potion is a blend of ten of the world’s most potent aphrodisiac essential oils and while the citrus notes of grapefruit and orange peel are apparent with the opening, so too are the rose, violet leaf and jasmine. Love Potion has an unexpected appeal. To sniff from the bottle is an effort in futility, as you won’t come near the experience of this incredibly sexy and intoxicating perfume. As the fragrance moves Ylang Ylang, sandalwood, and frankincense emerge with a loving embrace to the olfaction senses. Cedarwood atlas becomes more apparent toward drydown. At drydown you are left with a highly sensuous scent and an overall sense of well-being. Tata Harper is a TME Favorite -- with each product produced with the purpose of love and wellness. Love Potion is the perfect scent for the month of February! Seasons: All; Sillage: 3-Moderate; Longevity: 4-Long Lasting; Bottling-5.

For the gentleman we present a scent that is a nod to old school sexy -- Layrite No. 9 Bay Rum Aftershave (4 oz -$10.00). No. 9 Bay Rum is a traditional aftershave, but no stop, it is NOT Old Spice! This is a whole lotta sexy! And it serves a dual purpose; No. 9 Bay Rum Aftershave takes care of a man’s skin after shaving and can be used just as you would cologne. The opening offers a nice touch of clove that really awakens the senses. Made with Original Bay Rum Oils from the Virgin Island this is a spicy men’s fragrance that is not overpowering and we are absolutely loving for Valentine’s Day! Seasons: All; Sillage: 3-Moderate; Longevity: 4-Long Lasting; Bottling-5.

Where To Purchase:
Tata Harper Love Potion – Tata Harper and Nordstrom
Layrite No. 9 Bay Rum Aftershave – Layrite

Stayed tuned Beautynistas and Suavies -- we have so much more in store for the upcoming FOM months from the rare and exotic to just around the corner!

How To Wear the 2016 Pantone Colors of the Year

It makes sense that in our fast-paced world, Pantone would have choose two colors of the year -- Rose Quartz (dusty rose pink) and Serenity (tranquil periwinkle blue). Speaking last week with the Wall Street Journal, Pantone explained that the colors were chosen to convey rosy warmth and tranquility. Essences and feelings for which we could all use a little more of and that can be incorporated into your look far easier than you think … yes, even blue! To get you started, here are few of Team TME’s favorite makeup picks.


If you’re feeling a little bold, check out RPZL and Steekers! RPZL 100% Remy Virgin Hair Extensions in Trailblazer Teal or Lavish Lavender and Streekers temporary hair colors in blue or pink. Or add a small accessory like Scunci Fashionably Fit 2-in-1 Hair + Wrist Band


Create calm, cool looks with Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Luminous Lip Gloss is Rose Crème and Beautiful Color Eye Shadows in Innocence and Sky. To keep the look serene, use one to two coats of either shadow for subtle color.

Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Liner in Periwinkle – while this pale-blue shade is bold, but it can be worn somewhat conservatively when you apply the thin marker-like liner to your top lash line.

jane iredale Eye Shere Liquid Eye Shadow in Peach Silk is a silky, shimmery, sexy shadow that is perfect for incorporation into your holiday look
Tata Harper Volumizing Lip and Cheek Tint in Very Sweet - Suitable as a highlighter or lip color, or for a pop on your cheeks, this soft shimmery balm delivers the perfect amount of believable glow.

Fall Back Into Beauty Fall 2015 Beauty Must Haves

Summer 2015 was definitely one for the history books. But with Fall 2015 officially beginning today, September 23, it’s time to say goodbye to the beach and hello to all of the stunning fall hues! Did you notice that all things “Pumpkin Spice” have remerged? Yum! So kicking into high-gear, again, Team TME went on an expedition to find the go-to, must-have beauty products that will get you ready for the cooler weather ahead … and do so in style.

Hair Care: Rejuvenating our locks after fun in the sun, and managing our hair, can be quite the endeavor as the weather cools down. PHYTO Phytokératine Repairing Shampoo ($22) and PHYTO Phytokératine Extrême Exceptional Mask ($59) are full of amazingly restorative and nourishing fabulousness for your locks, but do not contain Parabens, Sulfates or Phthalates. To keep those locks locked, we’re loving ECRU NY Silk Texturizing Balm ($28), Volumizing Silk Mist ($24) and Sunlight Finishing Spray MAX ($22.95) PHYTO and ECRU NY are cruelty-free!

Skin Care: Fess up … you still don’t have a solid skincare regimen! Okay, we’re not pointing any fingers – who are we to judge? We just want you to know that your skin will be with you for your entire life and eventually even the best of concealers will not be able to hid years of neglect. For Fall 2015, Team TME is very into Davines, Tata Harper Skin Care and Peter Lamas.

For an all over body rejuvenation, we pick Davines OI Body Wash ($25) and Tata Harper Smooth Body Scrub ($58). Out of the shower, our pick is Tata Harper Fortifying Body Lotion ($68).

Of course you can’t ignore your face! Begin and end your day with Peter Lamas Detoxifying Citrus C Cleanser ($24). Peter Lamas Nourishing Buriti Oil Moisturizer ($36) and once-per-week Peter Lamas Exfoliating Pumpkin Facial Scrub ($28). Tata Harper Boosted Contouring Serum ($185), Tata Harper Be Fierce Lip Care ($24) and Tata Harper Rejuvenating Hand Cream ($48) are absolute must-haves for fall and WINTER 2015!

Now that you have your hair, body, and face all prepped you need the hot products for Fall 2015! Oh, and these will take you through Winter 2015 too!

Cosmetics: Out with old, in with the new and we’ve found a few new products that you should check out this season. Speaking of out with the old, now is a perfect time to do Fall cleaning and discard that old makeup!

We absolutely fell in love with jane iredale Smooth Affair Facial Primer & Brightener ($48) a while ago and Team TME isn’t changing up for the season. Smooth Affair has anti-aging properties that even skin tone, minimize the appearance of pores and increase luminosity. Plus, it’s the best primer that we’ve found thus far.

Moving on to foundation, we’re really liking CoverGirl Outlast Stay Luminous Natural Glow Foundation ($11.30 – available in 5 shades) and worn by the stunning Sofia Vergara at Sunday night’s Emmys!

Tata Harper Volumizing Lip and Cheek Tint ($35 – available in six shades) does double-duty when you’re trying to get out the door and this new product is 100% natural & nontoxic Volumizing Lip & Cheek Tint delivers a more modern beauty experience, by combining lush natural pigments with the latest in anti-aging skincare technology.

NARS Pro Palettes are the first offering in a line of products designed with the professional makeup artist community in mind, but that doesn’t have to stop you from grabbing one! With two size options of the NARSPro Palettes (Large Palette, $18 and Small Palette, $14) and over 64 refill shades ($18 - $27 each), the opportunity to mix and match different shades of eyeshadows, blushes, bronzer, and pressed powders is endless.

More for the eyes … Mirabella Beauty just launched its Jewel Thief Collection and you’ll want to grab their Eye Palettes ($48 each) in Lavender Larceny and Diamond Deceit, as well as a Mirabella Velvet Lip Pencil in Wanted ($25).

Beauty ADDICTS offers up a few Fall Musts Haves starting with Effortless Eyes Eyeliner ($17.50 - Five custom shades) that are made from vegetable waxes, which provide a long-lasting wear.  Also From Beauty ADDICTS is Show Off Mascara ($22). This mascara rocks! With its unique formula you get volume, length and curl with Argan Oil to condition and protect. The curved brush hugs the natural eye shape to coat every lash while fanning and feathering. No clumps, no flakes, no smudges! Comes off effortlessly with a gentle cleanser.

As for lips, red is out and brown is in. Yeah, we never thought that we’d write that. However, it’s true. Brown has been the overlooked color and it is smokin’ hot for Fall and Winter! TME shared this new trend in “Celebrity Beauty Alert For Fall 2015,” which you can work with Elizabeth Arden’s Beautiful Color Moisturizing Matte Lipstick in Chocolate ($25), Almay’s Smart Shade Butter Kiss Lipstick in Nude-Medium ($6.99), or Revlon’s Ultra HD Lipstick in HD Snapdragon ($8.99).

You will, of course, need a few tools for which to apply your makeup. There probably aren’t too many makeup brushes that we haven’t seen and tried. So, you’ll have to trust us when we tell you that you’ll want to invest in Artis brushes. Artis brushes are made exclusively with CosmeFibre, a revolutionary engineered fibre made for applying cosmetic and makeup products that is 100% cruelty-free. The brushes are packaged in a beautiful velvet gift box with satin lining, and close using a flap with magnetic closure. The inner tray is removable so the box can be repurposed. The Artis Fluenta Collection can be purchased individually or in sets of 3 ($105), 5 ($190) or 9 ($400).

Looking for a new fragrance for Fall? Check out TME’s fragrance section, that includes our exclusive Fragrance Of The Month thorough reviews! Stop back ‘cause we are far from finished with Fall!
