Do You Share Makeup?

Ever end up in a car with friends primping for a night out, when the girl next to you asks to borrow your eye pencil? I have a slightly germophobic friend who would likely sharpen the other end, but another would just wipe it off. What about you?

I share my make-up with my mom {she wears it rarely} but otherwise i used to let closest friend use it once in a while...but now I learned how not to do that and I am much careful my make-up.

No, I'd claim to be afflicted with herpes of the eye if necessary to avoid sharing my makeup!

i don't like to share my make up with friends but sometimes it's quite hard to say no :(

yeah i definitely let my friends, but not some random stranger. I do a lot of theater- we always share everything- i don't think there's anything that's really sacred there :)

Personally with my own, never. Though I have gotten eyeshadows from my mom that she never uses or never used or tried it and didn't like the color on her, but I have my own brushes and stuff so it's never an issue, normally it's foundation that was too light that is a pump bottle or something like that.

It all depends. I use Bare Minerals so it's a bit more sanitary, just tap the loose product onto a clean surface and they use their own brushes. We do all share one of our fav lip glosses if the others forget.

I really hate sharing perfume also. (My friends all know I have the most delicious smelling When I pull out my perfume when we're out they all want to put it on... now, IF I was on the market - Why in the hell would I want another person around wearing my scent confusing whoever I'm interested in? It just makes me think "Copy Cat". And then, I really just want to say wear your own fk'n fragrance. The sh!t 'ain't' cheap as it is.

i FK'N HATE sharing my make-up. Especially my powder.. and my lipstick. I always feel so badly when my friends ask to borrow my make-up ..Like I don't have to balls to say "your face is too greasy/sweaty -- NO"... or just "I don't share my make-up". My friends are so sensitive ..and since I already speak my mind enough as it is.. they would probably get their feelings hurt. Most of the time I just throw it away instead of using it again. Kind of sad. It just really grosses me out because I know where their mouths have been if they're using my lipstick. Ugh.

I share my makeup with my friends all the time. Usually I just have them try something of mine or give them something I have used but didn't like a lot. I also do my friends makeup with my products and I have never had a problem. I don't make a habit of sharing eyeliner or mascara but it has happened before.

I share eyeshadow and mascara with my mum, usually when mines gone missing or run out. I always let other people use my foundation as long as they use their own sponge! I never let people use my lipstick/gloss/balm, my moisturizers or deodorant.

i would share my eye shadow. its not like the brushes are touching the inside of the eye...unlike liners.

I do not. I learned my lesson in high school: I borrowed my friend's mascara after swimming class, and ended up getting an eye infection. Makeup is one thing you should never share!

I don't care as far as anything powdered but definitely not pencils. Mascara is ONLY shared with bestie really. I mean, I wipe off and clean my brushes.
