Don't forget that the chinese law makes animal testing mandatory to sell cosmetics on their territory. It means that all brands sold there by Sephora are as guilty as them.
I was able to get a list of the brands they sell in China directly from their chinese website.
Be ready, it is a long one.
Colors in mood
Dolce and Gabbana
For Beloved One
Huiles & Baumes

Are you surprised to see some of those brands on the list ?
It prooves you that you can not blindfully believe what a brand tells you about animal testing.
It is important to look for brands approved by organisations that care about animals.
(Peta, Leapingbunny, One Voice, CCF) or to have a complete declaration from the brand.
(no testing by them or a third party on the ingredients, formulations or finished products and don't sell their brand in a country making animal testing mandatory)
The purpose of this post ain't to discourage you. It is about informing you that it is important to not just blindfully believe anything a brand might say. Make sure to be well informed.

You should be able to find something that will satisfy you.
I'm keeping faith and hoping that China will change their law, so millions of live can be saved.
