Let us introduce you to the most beautiful, colorful little items ever to have emerged from our in-house laboratory: the Volumizing Natural Lip & Cheek tint! We are so thrilled to unveil these treasures to you: three shades that deliver a more modern beauty experience by combining safe, lush natural pigments with the latest in antiaging skincare technology.
Calling them mere makeup products would be an understatement: these tints deliver the perfect pop of natural color to lips and cheeks while helping to fill the look of fine lines, for skin that has the irresistible flush and volume of youth. Already dying to take a better look? See them on our website by clicking here.These products are exclusively available on tataharperskincare.com until January 2015!
In this post, we’ll share with you the inspiration, science and formulation process behind these tints – plus, we’ll take a close look at the colors themselves with photos, swatches, et. al!
Meet our three shades: Very Vivacious, Very Charming, and Very Sweet. Each one is long-lasting (we’ve been wearing them all day / every day, and have found them to last 6+ hours on lips and cheeks), easily blended, and feel satin-smooth on the skin. For the best application experience, we recommend applying them to skin that’s been freshly moisturized and, ideally, exfoliated, so it’s soft and supple.
Very Vivacious is a modern coral. It’s an energetic yet mature pop of color that you can wear every day, and that’s versatile enough to give you a variety of looks. When worn lightly, it gives a warm hint of coral; when layered, its color is rich and dramatic. Very Charming is our answer to every woman’s search for the perfect pink. It’s the ideal, classic candy pink and gives the cheeks a natural looking flush. Layer for a playful and strong pink color. Very Sweet is a soft, effervescent peach that can be used as a highlighter in addition to a blush and lip tint. It’s soft shimmer can be layered on top of either of the other shades for a bit of added glow. There’s more than meets the eye with these tints: they’re packed with skin-healthy and antiaging ingredients. The base of the formula is a blend of moisturizing and soothing Coconut Fruit Extract, which gives these tints a silky-smooth skin feel, and Jojoba oil, which helps hydrate while improving skin texture. Their formulas include high performance antiaging ingredients, too: Spanish Lavender Extract helps fight muscle fiber contractions to reduce the appearance of fine lines and deep wrinkles, while Lipoamino Acid Technology provides cheek-plumping benefits and boosts elasticity. These two ingredients are all about adding benefits beyond beautiful color, for skin that is its healthiest and most youthful self. Below and above, see some behind-the-scenes shots from the lab, where we create these colorful beauties. See the slight shimmer in the formula? That’s from Mica, a natural mineral that gives the products a gorgeous iridescence that softly reflects light and makes the skin glow. These formulas are the result of countless hours spent bent over petri dishes and high-speed mixers, leveling the natural minerals and pigments in the formula by tenths of a percentage till the shade was just right. We were aiming for a modern coral, a petal pink and a soft peach – but, of course, we weren’t willing to compromise with synthetic pigments or ingredients. Have you ever taken a look at the ingredient list on your favorite blush or lipstick? Sometimes there’s weird stuff in there – color derived from coal tar, heavy metals, who knows what. We wanted only the purest stuff on the planet. Our color comes from iron oxides, which are naturally occurring mineral deposits. There are synthetic versions and natural versions – ours are 100% naturally derived.
Remember our Open Lab event? In July, we gave a sneak peek of our Lip and Cheek Tints to the press in New York City, with a full mini-lab Lip and Cheek station in our event space, complete with customizable lip shades concocted by Amanda, who leads our in-house product research and development activity. Here are Tata and Amanda, two members of the team who developed these shades from scratch, proudly sharing their hard work!
We hope you’ll love these new additions to our line, and will enjoy wearing true beauty without compromise! Let us know what you think of the colors as you explore – if you share photos of yourself wearing the tints, just tag us @tataharper on Instagram and we’ll share your post!
Xo, Tata & the Team
Last Wednesday at 5 pm, our Marketing, Events and PR team was in full-speed event-preparation mode. As we counted down the last sixty minutes until the start of our Open Lab and Traceability Program launch event (6 pm!), we rushed around our event space in the South Street Seaport area of Manhattan to make it look perfect. Posters went up, projectors were plugged in, wine bottles un-corked, high-heels put on, and charming blooms from Taylor Tomasi Hill were scattered about the space for the perfect natural ambiance. And then, at 6 pm , we were able to look around the room with satisfaction at the final effect. A jazz trio played energetic music near the door, and fresh flowers hung from the ceiling in front of a panel of logo fabric.
The first guests began to arrive, and we spent the next two hours immersed in our virtual Open Lab, with two hands-on skincare stations where we had two lab experts from Vermont present, Jon and Amanda, to help guests experience what it is that makes our skincare so unique.
The Open Lab Program is our way of connecting consumer with creation, and of giving our customers and community a way to really complete their skincare experience: to discover the who, why, where and how behind their skincare. We believe that when it comes to your daily skincare, the fewer mysteries, the better. By sharing a way for customers to trace their particular bottle of skincare back to the date it was created – and to virtually meet who it was that created their product – we’re lifting the curtain to our world of honest manufacturing here in Vermont. Plus, we’re sharing stories from our lab with our Product Editions – you can learn more about those here.
Long story short, we’re inviting you into our world with videos, photos and testimonials from our Vermont team. We’re a company that’s focused on what we believe really matters, which is inventing and manufacturing the world’s finest natural skincare in the world. You can learn everything you need to know about this program, and what it means for you, here!
Now, back to the event. Explore photos below!

Nestled in the colonial-classic, charming Mexican city of San Miguel de Allende (or so stated by Conde Nast Traveler, whose readers voted it the #1 city in the world in 2013!) is a contemporary, boutique luxury hotel like no other… Hotel Matilda, which has won awards and accolades for its cuisine, design and culture. We are so happy to share the news that our Tata Harper products are now available in the hotel! (which, according to our Beauty Ambassadors who have traveled to Matilda to train its lovely staff, is simply jaw-droppingly beautiful)! Here’s a bit of info on the Hotel: Hotel Matilda established its innovative and iconoclastic credentials from the beginning by offering an alternative travel experience – the ‘Matilda Lifestyle.’ Instead of the typical colonial décor, an art-gallery-like modern ambience was created, filled with an eclectic collection of dramatic works by contemporary artists. In this artsy setting, guests stay in designer rooms and suites, enjoy singular spa experiences, dine on extraordinary haute cuisine, and sip cocktails in a popular lounge known for its creative mixology.
Maybe on your next vacation south of the border, you can stop by this beautiful destination to pick up some Tata Harper products, and learn about this hotel and spa’s innovative, natural approach to luxury and beauty!
Our Resurfacing Mask is a go-to favorite, a hands-down hero product and a consistent best-seller. It’s pretty much perfect! But, we decided to take it to the next level for summertime, so we created a Limited-Edition formula with a new cocktail of high performance actives that give the classic formula a little bit of a kick. We wanted something that was perfect for summer: for heat, for sun exposure, and for keeping our skin glowy, soft and refreshed despite getting barraged by wind, salt water, pollution, sunscreen, etc etc.
Meet the Soothing Apricot Resurfacing Mask, which we like to say is a “tall glass of water for the skin”. It literally feels that good!
We added a cocktail of Apricot Stem Cells and Coconut Water to this mask, both of which have fantastic benefits for skin in summer months.
Apricot Stem cells add powerful anti-inflammatory and soothing benefits; this ingredient reduces redness, promotes an even tone and boosts skin tolerance. It does this by acting at two different levels of the skin’s inflammatory system in the dermis and epidermis, to fight back the inflamed elements and promote calmness. (Note: Skin tolerance is an important thing in the summer, when we’re all maximizing outdoors-time. It really means that your skin is strong and resilient, and less prone to detrimental effects caused by environmental factors like those listed above. Strong skin looks better for longer, while weak or compromised skin shows its age sooner.)
Coconut Water is a drink that we all love to guzzle at the beach, but the skin loves to drink it up too; it quenches dehydration and adds a burst of high performance hydration. It also helps to preserve moisture in the skin, and decreases skin roughness, and boosts cellular renewal. In a nutshell: ultimate skin refreshment!
May we recommend that you pop this Mask in the fridge 30 minutes before you want to use it? When cooled, the Mask will feel even better, instantly refreshing and calming the skin after a hot day. Delish! The base formula of this Mask is the same as our classic Resurfacing Mask, which works like a traditional peel to provide an instant solution for dull skin – without causing downtime or irritation. It delivers instant glow, minimizes the appearance of pores and improves texture, making it the perfect easy Mask treatment for just before a night out.
Love your Apricot Mask? Be sure to take a photo of it on Instagram and tag us @tataharper. If we love it, we’ll re-gram it!
