    A Bit Of Added Protein

    From Redditor /u/galindafiedify:

    "I was making a lipstick tester, and when I opened up the cap there was a thick, black bug leg sticking out the top of the bullet. Thank God I chose that box to make a tester, otherwise a customer would have taken it home!"

    Friends Know Best

    From Redditor /u/lalisa4:

    "My friend didn't understand why I didn't want to put the testers on my face. I watched as she did a full face of makeup and had to listen to her tell me I was weird for just putting stuff on my arm. The next morning she woke up with pinkeye. I didn't."
