Further proving that one cannot even trust two-faced PETA's list, cosmetics company Stila admits to testing on animals on their website and on "Twitter", yet remains on their cruelty-free list.
Does anyone remember when Too-Faced and Urban Decay decided to sell in China and thus test on animals and PETA attacked them and UD reversed their decision? It was in all of that that Hard Candy was also accused of this and they became angry and went to their FB page to clear it all up? And then UD got an award from PETA for deciding NOT to do something terrible?
I know we can't expect much from an organization that has a spokeswoman (Ellen) who is the face of a cosmetics company that is notorious for testing on animals, but if they are going to put out a list and attack companies that start testing, they should at least be accurate. I sent them a polite e-mail saying there was an error in their list with the correct info and a link... and got the auto-reply that they promise to get back to you, but they never did. Shocking. Only ONCE out of the 4 or 5 times I have e-mailed them for more info have they bothered to reply.
Not a peep was ever made about MAC deciding to start testing again. Or Benefit.
Do some companies get immunity from public attacks?
As for me, I e-mailed Stila to let them know that they can go ahead and test to expand their customer base, but I will not be buying their shit. I sent a polite e-mail that was never responded to or even acknowledged. Nice customer service Stila!
I really wish that Sephora would take a stand against animal testing or a new store would pop up that refuses to sell products tested on animals. It makes shopping there or at Ulta really, really hard.
