While testing this eyeshadow palette from tarte's the luxe list (sold at Sephora), I noticed something that got me curious....
"Made in China" ~ tarte is known to be cruelty-free. So what's this all about? Confused, I immediately asked my fellow bloggers from Beauty Blog Coalition to clarify these terms. Tashina of Logical Harmony posted a very insightful explanation which can be found here.
I have also asked tarte regarding this matter and here's the company's response...
Thanks for the message -- this is a subject very close to our hearts!
We are a cruelty-free brand and do not sell in China, or anywhere but the US.
Our products are formulated in the U.S, but some are filled into their components in China. By law we must state where the product is filled on the product component.
If you have any more questions, or are curious about the process we use to create our makeup, please give us a call at (646) 660-0754. We'd love to speak with you.

It's a delight to see companies like tarte who remain true to their cruelty-free ideals.
