From the Smashbox website:
Smashbox products are cruelty-free and vegan, meaning that they are never tested on animals, and they do not contain any animal by-products. Many of our brushes are made from animal hair, however no animals are harmed in this process.
WOW! I have always salivated over Smashbox cosmetics. No, seriously, everytime they're on QVC, I sit there in a daze. I can't seem to afford it, but the colors and products are just so beautiful! That Halo powder always gets me. I've always wanted to try it, and I guess this is the best reason to do so now! I don't care about the brushes anyway.
