Woman Sues MAC for Contracting Herpes?

Rihanna’s collaboration with MAC made headlines earlier this May, the RiRi Woo lipstick selling out in just three hours. In promotion for MAC RiRi Woo lipstick, Rihanna performed at Barclay’s Center in New York City. What highlighted the event was that the audience where able to snag a chance to sample the new RiRi Woo lipstick. Unfortunately, an NY woman allegedly contracted Herpes from trying the samples.
28-year-old Starkeema Greenidge, claims she sampled RiRi Woo lipstick at Rihanna concert and contracted the disease.
“[MAC] didn’t use a fresh or new lipstick tube, but rather one that had been used for other patrons,” the suit alleges. She said a MAC Cosmetics representative applied a used tube to her lips. The employee even instructed her to “press her lips together and spread the lipstick around,” according to the suit.
“I wasn’t able to work for two weeks. It cost me a lot of money,” Greenidge, a waitress, told the Daily News on Wednesday.

She filed a suit to MAC in Manhattan Supreme court in hopes of the company to be aware of how important sanitation is for future events. Greenridge says she wants the company to shift its sanitary practices by using disposable tubes and application tools. Rihanna has not yet publicly said anything about the news. Lesson learned ladies, never ever trust a free sample.
