The FDA does not require cosmetic companies to provide expiration dates on beauty products but they do expire and the side effects can be grueling. Be Aware!
Here are a few shelf-life examples that will give you a better idea of your make-up essentials;
- Mascara 2-3 months: When it starts to look clumpy and smell, get rid of it!
- Concealer/Liquid Foundation 6-12 months: Toss it, if the color starts to lighten or separate into layers.
- Powder Foundation, Eyeshadow, & Blush 2 years: Expired powders are prone to be more flaky & dry.
- Lipgloss & Lipstick 1-2 years: If your lipgloss is extra sticky or your lipstick seems dry without moisture, it is probably that time.
Don’t forget to clean your make-up tools! Invest in a cosmetic sanitizer and brush shampoo to keep applicators free of germs and breakouts.
