What do you say? Will you share your makeup?
I won’t. Not out of selfish reasons but for hygiene reasons. There are exceptions of course.
I will share powder products e.g. powder eyeshadows, powders and blushes. I will also share anything that can be pumped out or squeezed out e.g. primers, liquid foundations etc.
I will not share any products that I apply directly to my skin, or which I cannot easily clean and sanitize e.g. lipsticks, mascara, lipgloss, concealers with brush applicators etc.
Bacteria multiplies faster in a wet medium as opposed to a dry medium, hence my concern. Also, sharing lipsticks, lipglosses and mascara can spread germs and bacteria. If you wonder why you get a cold sore or eye infections from testing lipsticks at makeup counters, this could very well be a reason.
Oh and I don’t use makeup testers directly on my face for this reason too, which is also why I don’t go for makeovers. Where possible, I try not to use the lipstick and lipglosses and mascara (unless they use a disposable spoolie) and even eyeliners. Basically, anything that goes too near my lips or eyes doesn’t get shared.
So err… yeah. Next time you want to borrow my makeup, it’ll just be the powder products you’ll get 🙂
