The good news is that if you find yourself without makeup, you can use your friend's products without worrying about catching any germs. Unless you see open sores on her face, you don't have to be concerned as you apply your friend's signature color.
You have no need to worry about contracting anything thanks to a few ingredients added to these products. Manufacturers include small amounts of preservatives in their products to ensure that your lip glosses and other items don't become a breeding ground for germs. And while there have been rumors that some of these preservatives are unsafe, these are based on faulty studies so you can rest easy (and germ-free). To learn more about the safety of these ingredients, watch the DermTV episode here.
