Hard Candy: Tastes Good, Hard to Swallow

So there's good news and bad news. Hard Candy, my absolute favorite brand of cosmetics in the late '90s and early Aughts, is coming back. It had apparently never entirely gone away, thought I could no longer find it anywhere. Urban Decay acquired it, then sold it again. Now it's being re-released exclusively at—gulp—Wal-Mart. Much as I loathe Wal-Mart, I think I will cave and make the shameful expedition just to get my Hard Candy fix. I do have reservations, though: The price point will be much lower ($5-$10 per item), but how will the quality compare? Also, one of the great things about Hard Candy was that it wasn't tested on animals; will that still be the case? Wal-Mart isn't known for their strong morals, so I'm concerned. And nobunny is going to suffer just so I can have pretty nails.
