This is absolutely shocking! Strange thing is Urban Decay's still on PETA's cruelty free list.
But again their list is outdated.

Just to reiterate what some have said, we definitely can buy cruelty-free and it doesn't mean compromising quality - just taking a little extra time to research. My blog is all about cruelty-free beauty, but there are many other lovely beauty bloggers who feature only cruelty-free products or state clearly whether the product is cruelty-free or not, which you may want to check out to get some ideas of great cruelty-free products... just to name a few (in addition to My Beauty Bunny, Phyrra, and Vampy Varnish, who I'm sure everyone knows):

I'm so lost so is urban decay a company that's uses animals for testing?? if so that would make me so frickin incredibly mad considering they came out with the vegan palette and wrote all over the back How they don't test on animals and have pictures of cute lil animals all over the palette inside and out!!!!! cab somebody just tell me if they do or not? I get confused with all that big long explanation stuff! thanks! :)

So Happy that Urban Decay is back on the Peta's cruelty free list! The only way to be sure if a company is not testing on animals is to go to the Peta site: http://www.peta.org/living/beauty-a...
I've really been wanting to go cruelty free. As I need to purchase new toiletries I've been researching options. I'm going to do a lot of research and look for replacements to things I use from companies that aren't cruelty free.

Urban Decay are only on Peta's cruelty free list because the company itself does not do any animal testing, but the fact is that their parent company is now L'oreal and they DO conduct animal testing, which means UD's profits go to a company that still tests. I personally won't buy from UD again because of this.
This is just an honest curiosity, but how can we be so sure that companies that claim to be cruelty free, dont use ingredients that were provided by other companies that do conduct animal testing?
I'm not a vegan, not even a vegetarian, and I don't try to be. However, I do not believe that animals should be subjected to the laboratory testing of products designed for humans! Especially if there is a more humane AND more accurate way to test these products! I've always been a big supporter of free range farm food products so now I'll also be sure to keep an eye on these product lists. Thank you for this information!
Ladies, just to say, ubpp has lanolin in it... An animal by product... That was before the switch. Yes mind you lanolin is extracted from sheeps wool after its shaved off and does no harm to the animal it's still a by product that us taken from an animal. Going on and on about wanting cruelty free but supporting by products just seems a little silly to me. I can't use most department store brands due to my allergy to lanolin ( hives suck!!) I stand by the leaping bunny. Cruelty free is important to me. I mostly own elf cosmetics not due to price but because they don't use animal by products ( that I'm aware of) and they don't test on animals.
Also it's not just bunnies that are tested on. Shelter dogs are also selected as well. The most common breed of dog used? The humble beagle, due to their loyalty and willingness to love. You can beat a beagle to an inch if its life and they will still lick and love you. They forgive quickly. I own two both rescues. I can't believe they could be used with how sweet they are. Truely heartbreaking.
Now I'm not trying to rattle cages just saying that using cosmetics that have animal by products is okay but testing isn't?
Thanks for the post. Veggie beauty blog has a template to email companies. I find that what's what listed on companies websites have a lot or orwellian double speak, and a lot the vegan or cruelty free lists are outdated.It is best to email every few months. I don't get what "cruelty free" means anyway since a lot cruelty free products contain animal products and I doubt a cow walked up to a cosmetic company and offered their milk so a product could have milk protein, or a bee donated their honey for a skin or hair product.
Also, selling in China does not require animal testing, it's products manufactured in China for sale that require testing. So, a company could go to another 2nd or 3rd world nation to manufacture products and still keep costs low and maintain profit margins.
I apologize in advance for typos. I am on my phone.
