Makeup shopping is fun, but trying it on is a different story. If you're a bacteria-phobe, you're probably extra concerned with what lurks in the makeup testers. And let's be honest, swiping on a lipstick tester can be gross. Who knows what sickness you can get from the person who tried it on before you?
Some of us swatch lipsticks onto the backs of our hands, thing is, this technique doesn't show if the hue will look great on our pouts. To solve this dilemma, try this genius trick: Test the lip color at the back of your fingertip. The color on the said area is closest to your natural lip color—you'll get a better idea if it's really the right one for you.
