-Josh Rosebrook, Founder of Josh Rosebrook Hair and Skincare

“We adore Tara not only for being the absolute least hypocritical green goddess on the planet, but also for her many talents: blogging, singing, writing, cooking, modeling… This girl can do it all! And the best part: she’s as sunny as Spain and sweet as pie.”

-ELuxe Magazine

“The Internet boasts a myriad of blogs and websites dedicated to healthy living, making better lifestyle choices and organic alternatives to everyday chemical-laden products. But when you happen upon a site like The Organic Life Blog, it’s easy to see that it’s something special. The thing that we find the most marvelous is how connected Tara Mackey, the woman behind it all, seems to be with herself, her followers, and Nature.”

-Zoe Twitt, Shop Zoe Life

“We love, love, love Tara from Organic Life Blog and Tara Mackey Music. She’s one of the most kind, positive and driven people we know – and we love how she maintains focus on her goals and truly lives with intention.”

Jewel Toned

“Tara Mackey designed a sleek, high-end and stylish blog. Her high-energy posts are packed with information. All the jargon and facts are off-set by the sprinkling of humor. Tara isn’t afraid to put herself in the driver’s seat to try anything from new vitamins to fringe DIY treatments. This leads to some pretty interesting stories and unexpected consequences.”

Praise for The Tara Collection

Thoughtfully Magazine

ELuxe Magazine:

“This pure, botanical perfume embraces the purity of exotic Madagascar Vanilla. After I sprayed this from the lavish atomiser onto my pulse points, I felt an immediate, calming effect for some reason, and was delighted that finally, I had found a vanilla scent that’s doesn’t remind me of a bakery, thanks to the scent being infused with natural botanical essential oils including aloe and rosemary extract, to counter the sweetness of the vanilla top notes. But it’s not only the scent that is beautiful here, it’s also the idea behind its creation: it is named in honour of the lovely model, Tara Mackey who created the perfume in collaboration with Delizioso Skincare, 5% of all proceeds are donated to Cancer Research in Canada, in honour of Tara’s father, who succumbed to the disease.”

Dixie Dolls Glow: 

“Normally I am not a fan of this type of bronzer but I actually really liked this one. It’s smooth and creamy, vegan, cruelty free and gluten free.  I have, I kid you not, found my holy grail of perfumes. I feel like there should be a chorus of angels singing from above with each spritz of perfume. It’s made from 100% plant essences and it smells like you’ve walked into a bakery full of sweet and delicious cakes and pastries. Not only that, 5% of all proceeds from the sale of this perfume  are donated to the Cancer Research Center in honor of Tara’s dad.”

ELuxe Magazine: 

The Right Makeup For Your Skintone:  “Add a pink dolly flush with TARA Adorned Blushing Mousse by Delizioso Skincare. This hot pink hued cream blush diffuses into a cool rose on the cheeks.”


“Prepare yourself for 10+ hours of mouth-watering sweetness with this one. Opening with the same cheesecake/cream cheese note I described in Perfumes by Terri’s Vertigo Cuir, this quickly transitions into a mix of bright pink, bouncy bubble gum (the kind that’s so strongly flavored it hurts your tongue at first) and freshly-spun, dense cotton candy. Fairy floss and chewing gum have never been part of my sophistication repertoire, but Tara is not a perfume for the preteen crowd.”

Brikasia Beauty:  

“I don’t think there are enough words to convey how impressed I am with the green beauty brand Delizioso Skincare. I don’t see them getting nearly enough love on social media, and you know what? They totally deserve it. This was a totally unknown brand to me, until the gorgeous Tara Mackey of The Organic Life Blog released a makeup collection with them. And, thanks to Tara, not only did the wonderful women behind Delizioso Skincare send me a few items from Tara’s collection, but they sent me a few pieces from the main collection! I am SO excited to share with you guys these products because this totally changed the way I view green beauty. “

Small Bits of Loveliness:

“I need some help if I want that natural, sun kissed look. For that I’ve been really enjoying Delizioso Skincare bronzer, the one from Tara Collection, the California Bronzing Mousse*. A cream bronzer with a hint of red undertone gives a perfect bronzed look. I love the look it gives! Another product from the same line that I want to mention is the Glow Crème Luminizer*. Oh my, I totally adore it! It gives such a gorgeous glow to the skin. So pretty!”

Jahkira Babe:

 “The Tara Bronzing Mousse sheers out into a dreamy, golden sheen and leaves behind a beautiful wash of colour. I actually tried out this product on my mum before I tried it out on myself. She has very fair skin (think Snow White) and it suited her wonderfully without looking orange or garish. On my tanned skin, the bronzer makes my skin glow in the most bombshell sort of way. Victoria’s Secret models eat your heart out.”

Beauty Loves Nature: 

I love the texture and feel of this makeup! It contains prickly pear seed oil, argan oil, watermelon seed oil, soy wax, and natural essential oils.”

My Subscription Addiction:

“This blushing mousse is made with Madagascar vanilla and it smells like a cupcake to me! This is a super pigmented formula, so a little goes a long way. (I even tried to apply it sparingly and still put on too much for blush the first try).”

Harlot Beauty:

“The Tara blush is a mousse formula that blends into skin to give it a natural flush of color. It’s 100% natural, vegan, cruelty and gluten free, as well as made with certified organic ingredients. This shade is supposedly flattering on all complexions, although I can only speak for my own- and it looks lovely! It can be worn over or under powder, on the cheeks, lips or eyelids.  The moment I opened this I could smell vanilla frosting. It’s such a delicious scent! Checking their site, I noticed it is “Pure Madegascar Vanilla.” I really loved how nicely this blended out on my cheeks and gave me a pretty flush of color. The color is definitely buildable for a more intense look too, if you prefer.”

Bits and Boxes: 

“The mousse formula blends into skin, adding a truly natural and gorgeous flush of color. Flattering for all complexions, the mousse is weightless and can be worn over or under powder to add a pop of georgous rosiness to cheeks, lips and/or eyelids. This is vegan, cruelty free and 100% natural.  It smells like absolute heaven. I want to eat it. And guess what? With the ingredients it has, I could! Don’t worry, I won’t but I’m just saying. Mmmm, vanilla. This is also a full size product and is worth the entire cost of the box itself! It’s very sheer and smooth on the lips- SO pretty! It also blends really well as a blush, too. I’m usually not into cream type blushes but this gives a subtle rosey glow. It’s beautiful.”
