Can you get herpes from sharing make up or lipstick?

Unlikely

Skin
Many think sharing cosmetics is not a good idea. Certainly if the person from whom you are sharing has active herpes on their face or lips, then you should not do this. However you undoubtedly have already been exposed in the past to herpes and as long as your lip and facial skin is intact, there is almost no risk.

Can you get herpes from sharing underwear with someone else?

Herpes simplex

Cold_sore
This would be very uncommon. If one person had active herpetic lesions, took off their underwear and you put them on immediately it is conceivable that it would be communicated in this manner.

Can you get herpes from a needle I was under the understanding that herpes lives in the epidermis and is spread by direct contact. I also thought it was slightly possible to get herpes from sharing something such as a cigarette or a pipe as its indirect

The

The herpes virus is spread from by direct contact with the virus. This would be via any direct contact with a herpetic lesion, intimate contact with actively infected person, sharing drinking glass, lipstick, cigarette with a person with an active herpes ulcer on the mouth. The virus is not transmitted from a needle prick of an infected person. What is detected in the blood in persons with previous exposure to herpes is antibodies that are present when someone has been exposed to the virus in the past.
