Let’s skip pass the irony of the headline and go straight to the facts. 28 Year old Starkeema Greenridge is suing MAC after Greenridge allegedly contractedherpes after from Rihanna’s lipstick.
Greenridge, who resides in Harlem, NY was at a recent May 7th Rihanna concert at the Barclays Center and claims a M.A.C. representative applied a sample of Rihanna’s lipstick on her lips at a pop-up shop outside the concert. According to the suit, the MAC representative used “unsanitary” methods when applying the makeup:
“(MAC) didn’t use a fresh or new lipstick tube, but rather one that had been used for other patrons,”
Greenridge told the Daily News that she suffered loss of wages, “mental anguish and emotional distress” due to the ordeal.
Rihanna signed a deal to release her own cosmetic line through M.A.C. in 2007.
