Check the Date: Is Your Makeup Expired?

The other day I did a massive clean-up of my makeup vanity making piles of old and barely used products.

Much like your food or old medicine, makeup has expiration dates that should be adhered to. 

As a general rule, once the foundation is opened it has about a 6 month to a year shelf life before you have the risk of it expiring.

Mascara has the shortest shelf life of all of your makeup products. After 3 months, it’s time to let it go.

Eyeshadow lasts about two years as long as it has been maintained well. The powder formula should be kept away from humidity and in a cool, dry location.

Your lipstick has a shelf life of about one year. Once liquid lipstick or gloss starts to separate and get oily, it’s time to let it go.
