Cosmetics Don’t Last Forever

You have that favorite lipstick that you have been using  forever– or that powder you have had for years.  But did you know that make-up expires and can actually be dangerous to use?  Make sure to date your make-up so that you know exactly when you started using it.  Use a marker or a label to mark when you started using the product so that you know how long you have really had it.  Below is a sample list of expiration dates I found online for you to reference.

Oil-free foundation: 1 year
Cream or compact foundation: 18 months
Concealer: 12-18 months
Powder: 2 years
Blush and bronzer: 2 years

Liquid eyeliner: 3-6 months
Mascara: 3 months
