Question of the Week

Well hello there and happy Friday to you.

I hope your week treated you kindly. Mine was pretty good actually. There was a super cool announcement which I had been keeping secret since spring!

Tarte has a new limited edition holiday set out exclusively at Ulta now called The Big Thrill. And big it is!
