I had a commenter recently ask about Hourglass Cosmetics so I decided to check to see what their policy was. I’ve never used their products so I had never looked into it. Here is what they state on the FAQ page on their website.
As a cruelty-free brand, Hourglass does not incorporate animal testing into our development phase or at the production level. We do not provide authorization to any third parties to perform animal testing on our products. In addition, Hourglass does not retail within any country that requires animal testing.
Many Hourglass products are produced without animal-derived ingredients. Please consult our on-line product descriptions or those on Hourglass packaging for the complete list of “free of” ingredients.
Additionally, I found this post on Humanely Chic in which Hourglass stated that they are a private company and are not affiliated with any other company that conducts animal testing.
