The Word: Tarte Cosmetics Vegan Query

At present, you cannot create a “full face look” with Tarte Cosmetics’ PETA certified, cruelty free and vegan product collection; that is, unless you want to use the gel eyeliner over your whole lid and lip tint/gloss on your cheeks, which you could do, I suppose. Last year, I’d gotten a bit of a boost of spirits from a brand rep…but my high hopes were soon put in check.

I am a vegetarian and I was recently speaking with a representative of your
brand at a Sephora store. The rep said that the brand was getting an
overhaul to make it entirely vegan or vegetarian. Is there any truth to
this? If not, are there any plans to change the packaging or store displays
(like Urban Decay using the Marley Footprint) to denote that a specific
product is vegan or vegetarian?

In the end, I can’t knock them for their honesty.

I’ve always been a brand disloyalist anyway; picking and choosing what I liked best. My picks from their PETA certified Vegan collection?
