Harlem woman has filed a lawsuit claiming that she contracted herpes from sampling Rihanna’s “RiRi Woo” lipstick at a MAC cosmetics pop-up shop at the singer’s concert.The 28-year-old Starkeema Greenridge says she got the STD after a MAC representative applied the red-hot lipstick directly to her lips outside of Rihanna’s May 7th performance in Brooklyn.

According to the New York Daily News, Greenridge is taking MAC to Manhattan Supreme Court and hopes that the case will force the cosmetics company to become more sanitary and use disposable cleansing wipes or swabs to apply makeup.

“I wasn’t able to work for two weeks. It cost me a lot of money,” Greenridge told the Daily News.

According to the suit, the employee instructed her to “press her lips together and spread the lipstick around. [MAC] didn’t use a fresh or new lipstick tube, but rather one that had been used for other patrons,” the suit alleges.

MAC cosmetics could not be reached for comment and have not responded publicly to the lawsuit.
