noob question

Recommended Posts

cosmetics expire or something like that do they?

I don't use cosmetics too often, only when I have something very important, so can I know how long can I keep my cosmetics before they turn unsuitable for use?

Sorry but I don't know how to use make-up terms, thus the sloppy phrasing.

I learned eons ago (it may have changed by now):

eyeshadows and blushes (powdered kind) = 3 years

foundation = 6 mo

lipsticks/cream blushes/cream eyeshadows = 6 mo

mascara/eyeliner = 3 mo

I believe all of this is based on bacteria rather than the ingredients going funky and looking strange on your face...

Anyone else have more up to date info?

i think that if you haven't used your products in a year....throw them out...3 years on eyeshadows and blushes is to long....

foundations and concealers=1 year tops

lipsticks=1 year

mascara/eye liner=6months

eyeshadows=1 year

blushes=1 year

the creamier the product the sooner i think you need to use up or toss.....
