I have just read a horror article on yahoo about all the horrible bacteria lurking in make bags. They nestle and proliferate in brushes and sponges and they particularly love lipsticks and mascara. They have nasty names like pseudomonas aeruginosa, staphylococcus epidermis and E Coli. Aaargh! You think you're making yourself beautiful but you could be ingesting FILTH every time you apply your lippy!
