Makeup Samplers at Stores Are Covered in STDs

Before you try out some lipstick or eye shadow from the makeup counter at a store, just remember this:  That would be a real bummer of a way to catch an STD.

A team from the NBC affiliate in Charlotte, North Carolina took department store makeup samplers to a lab to have them tested.  They grabbed 10 different types of makeup, including lipstick, mascara, eye shadow, and blush.

And the lab found the makeup was covered in things like mold, E.coli bacteria, staph and MRSA infections and herpes.

That’s right.  The doctor who ran the test says, quote, “Even sexually transmitted diseases can be transmitted by sharing makeup.”

So should you EVER trust the samplers?  Quote, “If you were the first customer and they have just opened up a brand-new sample.  But beyond the first person, no.”
