FYI! Beware of those in store testers ladies!!!DONT GET HERPES !

Soo recent news from a beverly hills dermatologist is warning consumers not to use the testers on display at Sephora and other beauty stores.
She says, "If a woman has a cut on her lip and borrows lipstick from someone who has a cold sore, she'll get a cold sore. You can pass herpes [the cold-sore virus], conjunctivitis [pink eye], and all sorts of things through sharing makeup."  

Well this should be a known fact people!!!!!Stay away from those germ infested testers YUCK!
Just imagine all the dirty girls who have touched those lipsticks that have been sitting there for months and months,they probably looks something like this 


  1. I like to use store testers...:)On my wrist that is. I would never put anything on my eyes or mouth. I started getting scared of even touching things with all the flu viruses going around.

  2. I like this post. Store testers are disgusting. Most people don't even wash their hands and then they put their fingers all over testers. I know for a fact that many stores do not even clean their testers; in fact, it's not easy to do so effectively.

  3. thanks for posting this ! I'm glad I read this ! I've never tested lipsticks on my lips too, always on my hand :)

  4. I'm very leary about using testers in stores unless it is something like perfume. You can never be too sure about make-up testers-best to stay clear of them. Companies should offer small pre-packaged samples of their products in stores in place of one large communal tester. It would be much healthier!
