  • Thank you for your honest about it. I thought Tarte cosmetics are cruelty free. I am disappointed why they does testing on animals. I will be no longer use Tarte cosmetics. I really hate to see animals suffering needed to stop abuse of testing! KVD Beauty, Urban Decay cosmetics and black moon cosmetics are my favorite!
