You probably shouldn't share her birthday cake, either.

A woman who attended a Rihanna concert in Brooklyn is angry she ended up with a fat lip. Not because someone punched her, but because she claims she got herpes from a lipstick sample at the show venue.

Starkeema Greenidge says a M.A.C. Cosmetics rep at Rihanna's show at the Barclays Center applied a tube of RiRi Woo lipstick directly to her mouth. The stick must have been used for other people at the show, because Greenidge said the next day "my whole lip was irritate and hugely swollen," she told TMZ. A doctor then told her she had herpes (although the site doesn't specifiy what kind).

Now Greenidge is suing M.A.C. for unspecified damages for not using individual samples or swabs. But hey, at least she came back from the concert with a souvenir way more permanent than a $50 t-shirt.
