Do you know where that lipstick has been? Eeeew!
I admit I do it all the time. I test lipsticks on at counters. Granted, I do ask the MA’s to wipe it off and ‘disinfect’ with alcohol but still. If I really think about it, it really is kind of gross. Don’t you think? I try NOT to think of how many people have swiped it on their hands, and how many people who have tried it on without disinfecting.
A friend of mine got a terrible infection on her lips after testing out a lipstick. It’s never happened to me thankfully and despite knowing this happened to her, I still do it. And do it and do it!
I’m interested to know how you feel about makeup testers. Do you try lipsticks on? What about other makeup?
Hope you all had a great weekend. We had fabulous weather in Toronto and we spent a lot of it outside. I have tomorrow off too and I’m taking my daughter to the Royal Ontario Museum (the ROM as we call it). I told her we’d check out the dinosaur exhibit and the Egyptian mummies. I then told her that we’d also be able to see the special exhibit of the Dead Sea Scrolls and her eyes grew bigger. “That’s cool! The Dead Sea Squirrels! What are they?” LOL. My husband and I laughed our heads off. So funny and cute.
P.S. I wanted to thank Grace for nominating me for an Adorable Blog award again. She is one of my new favorite bloggesses. Her posts are fun and very witty. Go check out her awesome blog!
