5 TIPS TO TRY MAKEUP TESTERS SAFELY IN MALLS AND STORES

Any self confessed beauty junkie will vouch for the adrenaline rush at the sight of new makeup at the beauty counters.Makeup products specifically color cosmetics can be extremely tricky to buy without trying on /swatching them on skin.

However most testers in malls and stores are kept in open and tried on  by hundreds of shoppers, making them contaminated with potential risk of catching bacterial, viral or other infections.

So how to try on the testers safely? Read on to find out more

1. Ask the SA / MUA to clean the tester before trying, this should be done with alcohol (Alcohol based astringent should work well). Usually many SAs would not have alcohol to clean the cosmetic so try & carry a wet cleansing wipe containing alcohol to clean the lipstick/liner surface before trying.

2.Try carrying your own lip brush / eyeshadow brush if you are trying out swatches, stores often have unclean brushes and they increase risk of infection.

3.Avoid applying testers on your face or eyes, if buying foundation that you need to try on your face, ask the store to provide you sample sachets.For rest of the makeup items swatch on your arm / wrist to avoid any disease causing germs to come in contact of your eyes /mouth.

4. Shop at time slots & days when stores have less traffic, avoid cosmetic shopping on Saturdays & Sundays as heavy footfall in stores means less time the SA will have to clean makeup surface / brushes upon your request.

5.Avoid trying products which lie in open jars as they have highest chances of harboring germs.
