How Gross Is Your Makeup?

How Gross Is Your Makeup?

– If somebody were to
hold up this petri dish, and they’re like, “The disease,
the pestilence, it’s here,” I would believe them. (funky instrumental music) – The things that I tend
to replace the most often are anything that I use around my eyes. But anything else, I typically keep it for as long as possible. – Here’s the thing, good
makeup is expensive. – With lipstick and mascara, specifically, I paid a good penny for those. I can’t just throw it away
after three to six months. – I have a lot of liquid lipsticks. I don’t really know anyone
that replaces their lipsticks before they’re out. I don’t think that’s a thing. – I clean my makeup brushes. Definitely once a month, I
deep clean these brushes. – Lipstick’s melted on
the brush, but it’s clean, I promise you. This is clean. – I’m interested to know
what hides inside of these liquid lipsticks. – Oh God, I just realized
what I set myself up for. (laughs) – I think after people
spend a lot of money on these make up products,
they probably don’t want to throw them away. So, that’s probably one reason
that there’s an accumulation of these bacteria that are
building up on the powders and the brushes. We used swabs to swab the
surface and then applied that to the bacterial plates. In some cases, we were able to
apply the brushes or mascara directly to the bacterial plates. So, we actually found two
different types of staph. We also found bacteria that can cause gastrointestinal problems and diarrhea. Bacteria that also are
associated with strep throat, UTI infections, even meningitis. (mysterious music) – Alright. – Oh no, oh no! (gasps) Oh no, what is it? – Wow (laughs). – This is gross. This thing looks disgusting. – Okay, please tell me
that mine’s not the worst. It was? Mine was the worst? – Yes! One thing that I have
control of in my life is the cleanliness of my makeup products. Take that bacteria. – I’m very shocked by the diseases. Like, staph is pretty alarming. I wasn’t expecting that. – This is staph infection. What is my life? What am I doing with myself? – So, thankfully, this
crusty, germ-like pool is apparently normal. So, I’m happy, but I’m like, “If this is normal, what does
the nasty stuff look like?” – I really thought that
with the past two years, I was pulling it together. And then I see this shit,
and I just realize that I’m nowhere near becoming
a successful adult. – I have been slipping
on washing my brushes, and maybe I’ll try to
wash them every week. But again, life comes at you fast. So. (funky instrumental music)

  1. This is really annoying, most of these are found in your day to day life and even on your own body of course they're going to grow on a petri dish. They're opportunistic pathogens and are nothing to worry about. You'd probably get the same result if you swabbed your mouth

  2. “People don’t replace their lipsticks after 3 months. I don’t believe that’s a thing!” Lmao Freddie god I love you 💕 but I’m with you I spend good money and 3 months is not long enough to have some expensive makeup! I need more time with my makeup!!!

  3. I wash my brushes every week. I had a seperate container for my face sponge, i dont left it inside my powder foundation container. And i remove makeup using olive oil. hope i dont have lots of bacteria on my make up though hahaha

  4. Lol in my opinion I think she should dye her hair brown again she looks so fun, bubbly, and nice I feel like with blonde hair she looks serious. It’s just my opinion tho

  5. Since I’ve started watching ladylike within the past couple months, seeing Dev as a brunette is almost like seeing her as a different person lol

  6. Why make make up if it is just going to possibly put you in harms way of disease or what not and put a high price on it so people wouldn’t want to replace their make up so fast.

  7. Yall realize that bacteria is ubiquitous right??? You can literally swab ANYTHING in this entire world, and bacteria would grow in a plate…especially considering those plates are designed to feed the bacteria with optimal nutrients. I took Micro in college so I remember all of this.

  8. the girl with the cleanest makeup, has the best makeup on😉

    don’t know if its cus she’s god w makeup but just thought it was quite accurate.

  9. Stop making videos like this. I can’t afford to spend any more money on makeup by throwing stuff away before I’ve even made a dent in the product.
