Makeup lovers, rejoice!

Following thousands of your e-mails and talks with PETA, Urban Decay has announced that it won’t sell its products in China until non-animal testing methods are accepted there. We are stoked that Urban Decay is staying true to its ethic of producing top-quality products without harming animals—even though it means giving up a market share in China—and we’re pleased to return the company to our list of cruelty-free companies!

On behalf of rats, mice, and bunnies everywhere, woohoo!

    😀 HORAY! :]
    That’s fantastic. Makes me feel good being part of the street team because I emailed them about this issue from one of the actions. WIN for peta2, animal lovers, but most importantly animals!

    I still don’t plan to buy from them. The fact that they’ve shown profit mattered more to them than what they built their company on is a red flag to me. I can use my money elsewhere.

    It’s awesome, but at the same time, shouldn’t we work on getting ALL of their products vegan? I’d really like to be able to buy more than just eye shadow from them. Lord knows I have enough of that stuff -.-

    This makes me so so so happy. I love Urban Decay and I was preparing myself to give up their products and I’m relieved both for the animals and for myself that I don’t have to now!

    Yay! I’m so glad that Urban Decay is not going to test their products on animals just so that they can sell them in China. :)

I love fast food, glass blowing, making solar sensitive paper prints, ceramics, making friendship bracelets, tie dying, decorating my room, shopping online and off (but mostly online), cuddling with my Cockapoo named Mickey,eating candy, making things, fashion, & going to the mall.

I want to travel a ton one day, learn German, drive and lifeguard, and be an elementary school art teacher. I collect international stamps, coins, postcards, Betty and Veronica Archie Comics, kawaii stuff, cameos, *stickers*, and trinkets (I pick things off the ground, I’m a klepto like that). I write in a diary everyday. I hate candy corn. I have two cactus plants. I have Facebook, Snapchat, Tumblr and Instagram, so HMU if you want my usernames. I believe loosely in karma, fate, kismet, déjà vu, reincarnation, dreams, destiny & fate. I love for stores: Etsy, Hot Topic, Francesca's, & Claire’s. People say I look like Brenton Thwaites.

    As a kid, I was and am still curious about the great big world we live in, and I thought nothing of animal abuse. But for some or no completely good reasons, I was getting sicker and weaker. Then one day I heard about PETA while I was on the internet. I got a little curious, and I went veg after finding out meat was one of the reasons I was sicker. Right now, I'm still trying to give up meat for my health. But I'm getting there!
