(Scroll down for video) A woman was seen going into a beauty supply store and tasting make-up before buying them.
The 22-year-old woman explained that she is addicted to eating make-up and she buys the beauty products as food.
Brittoni, of Toledo, Ohio, said that she knows that tasting the make-up and then putting it back on the shelf for someone else to buy is wrong, but her addiction is getting the better of her.
“I know that it is wrong, but I don’t want to buy something I won’t eat or wear,” she said.
Brittoni’s addiction began when she was 6-years-old. She found her mother’s colorful make-up and decided to taste it because it looked so hood.
Later, she was diagnosed with a heart condition, and doctors believe that it could have been caused by the chemicals in the products she has been eating.
Her fiance, Josh, and other family members, who have learned of her addiction, are pushing her to get help.
