Does anyone really need a warning not to put on lipstick that's been sitting out at Sephora collecting bacteria and viruses, possibly herpes? "If a woman has a cut on her lip and borrows lipstick from someone who has a cold sore, she'll get a cold sore. You can pass herpes [the cold-sore virus], conjunctivitis [pink eye], and all sorts of things through sharing makeup," a Beverly Hills–based dermatologist says. [LAT]
