OLD MAKEUP: KNOW WHEN TO TOSS IT!

How long are you supposed to keep a tube of lipstick anyhow? If I didn't know for sure, I figured some of you might not either. So I did some research, and today I’m giving you a few tips and key expiration dates to keep in mind when it comes to your beauty products!
Let the “trash talk” begin!
Lipstick: Some experts say 1-2 years. Some say 4 years (especially when stored in your refrigerator!). So how do you know when to toss an old tube? Take a big whiff of it! If it smells rancid, throw it out, it's expired.


   Lipglosses/chapsticks:
 2 years

Powder eye shadow: 2 years


Cream eye shadow: 12-18 months

Eyeliner: 3 months
Mascara: 3 months

  Powder blush: 2 years


  Cream blush:
 6 months

Oil-free foundation: 12 months

Cream foundation: 18 months

Concealer: 12-18 Months

Lotions: 2 years

TIP: If you’re not already in the habit of doing so, get in the habit of labeling your beauty products with the date of first use. This way, you’ll always know how long you’ve been using a product and when it’s time to pitch it.

Do any of these expiration dates surprise you? Is there a product you’re curious about that I didn’t mention here? Let me know in the comment section below.
