Ive gotten alot of free samples from makeup counters- little containers of clinique makeup... like multiples at once

This was such a great article. Its so sad but all these things are so true and that is why I like to do my own research on products and normally buy either directly through their main website or for some brands, the drug store.

This may be true for most Companies, but I work for a Merle Norman Studio, where our make overs truly are free, the brushes are both chemically and UV sterilized, our lesson material that is to be used on clients is removed from the container with a sanitary spatula, and the tester people put their fingers in are NEVER for use on a customer's face. I am both a licensed cosmetologist and very experienced make up artist, but would never claim to have any medical expertise about dermatology, and in fact have referred many clients to a determologist for issues ranging from rosacea to skin cancer. Perhaps the author should dig a little deeper while researching next time. Not all make up counters are created equal!

Ok, in any customer service job (fast food, retail, etc.) they talk about you behind your back. I've worked in fast food and retail, so I know I've done it.

All true. I worked at Nordstrom for nearly 20 years; Testers are filthy and I will buy a product to test it before I would try it at the counter. Especially at stores like Sephora where everything is being handled. Also; Check the product you're buying that it hasn't been opened, don't buy it or return it if you have,

I'm glad I read this. I'll think twice before approaching the makeup counters now.

Kinda scared me. Glad I shop at the drugstore.

It's interesting to see how many people are uneducated in regards to germs. The fact that face products are refundable just shows that if you find a product you actually like, test it on something new not the actual "tester". Your skin will thank you later.

I never use the tester makeup, it always scares me, you never know who used the product before you, ew. I ask questions about the products, I want matter of fact not their personal opinions.
