Wearing my lipstick.

Went to a dressy day event last week with a load of girlfriends and a friend of mine wanted to borrow one of my fav mac lipsticks to wear. Yes ok no worries. She put it in her bag for a topup throughout the day. At the end of the day after a few drinks etc she went home and I forgot to get it back. Messaged her to make sure she still had it etc. I have now just seen pics of her at a festival wearing said lipstick. I'm a bit pissed off tbh as those lipsticks aren't cheap and what if she looses it/breaks it etc. I just messaged her to say hope u having s good day etc etc btw would u be able to drop my lippie round over the next few days as I'm out his week and would like it back.
AIBU to be annoyed at this?

How do you know it's your lipstick she's wearing? Confused

icelollycraving · 01/07/2017 21:52

Well if she loses it, she will need to replace it. If she loses it, doesn't replace and behaves annoyingly then yanbu to be pissed off.
Yabu to be annoyed yet.

This wouldn't bother me tbh as it's just lipstick.

creamcheeseandlox · 01/07/2017 21:55

Very because it's a very bright colour and she hasn't got one like that hence borrowing mine. Unless she's gone out and bought the same one in a week which I doubt then it's mine.

Who asks to borrow lipstick.

I wouldn't want it back.

Go round and get it.

I would never share a lipstick. Yuck. Too many germs. Anyone who knows me knows I don't share my make up products, it's an unhygienic habit.

Crunchymum · 01/07/2017 21:57

How much is it?

SJaNH · 01/07/2017 21:58

Get over it. What's a lipstick between friends?!

missiondecision · 01/07/2017 21:58

Let her keep it.
Yabu to share a lipstick anyway. Cold sore anyone? You don't know where her mouths been. Grin

creamcheeseandlox · 01/07/2017 21:59

I'm the one who has cold sores and she still wanted to borrow it 🤔

Mac test on animals so say good riddance to it

YesMadamDeputySpeaker · 01/07/2017 22:01

I would be pissed off - MAC lipsticks are fairly pricey.

I wouldn't share lipstick in the first place though, I'm far too germ-phobic. Do you really want it back now?

AfunaMbatata · 01/07/2017 22:01

Ewww! Don't share lipstick!! You don't know where her lips have been

YesMadamDeputySpeaker · 01/07/2017 22:03

I thought they didn't test on animals? They're owned by Estee Lauder.

LovingLola · 01/07/2017 22:18

Mac products are sold in China. China requires cosmetic products to be tested on animals.

ILostItInTheEarlyNineties · 01/07/2017 22:18

Tell her you're worried about her catching Herpes and she soon stop wearing your lipstick in all her selfies. It's probably worn down to a tiny stump by now.
What a cheeky cow.

that;s like asking to borrow your Knickers OP... you should have said No ... it's such a personal thing ... go get it back x

DJBaggySmalls · 01/07/2017 22:29

No cosmetics or ingredients sold in Europe can be tested on animals. Its EU and UK law.

MyOtherNameIsTaken · 01/07/2017 22:30

Sharing lipstick? ick.

LovingLola · 01/07/2017 22:31

China - by law - requires animal testing. Products sold in China are tested on animals. So Mac (or Estee Lauder) uses animals to test those products which they sell in China.

sizeofalentil · 01/07/2017 22:34

I'd think 'cheeky cow' but not mind too much of she wore it again while it was in her possession. One or two extra applications of a lipstick isn't going to use it up that much quicker than if she hadn't. But she was a bit rude to do it without asking.

Theresnonamesleft · 01/07/2017 22:38

Get yourself a better brand.
Stop sharing make up.

DramaAlpaca · 01/07/2017 22:40

Let her keep it. Sharing lipstick is minging.

I think you are confused. Many companies use products that were once tested on animals, a very long time ago and not by them.

If you're trying to say never buy a product that contains something that was ever tested on animals, then there would be very little to buy. If you're saying they use new ingredients they test on animals, then you're wrong,

The discrepancy, and your confusion, is who tested the ingredients they use and when. If they didn't do it, but it was once done a number of years ago by another company, possibly even for medical reasons, then they can sell in both continents.

As for the op, I think it's fairly petty, if you want your lipstick back, get it next time you see her.
