The lab found that the samples were covered in mold, E.coli, staph and MRSA infections – oh and the icing on the cake – herpes!

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

Yikes! Maybe it’s a good practice to make sure to ask for a new, unopened sample.
