Foundation Exp Date...

I was recently asked how long one should keep makeup before it goes bad. Well you can google this and get different answers. I'm going to go with 12-18 months depending on the type of foundation and how often it is exposed to bacteria. Hence why I rather go with a squeeze tube or preferably a pump. What I do is I write down on the bottle the date I bought/opened the bottle. I do have to say that I also go by smell and texture. Funky smell is def'ly no bueno. I'm more careful to follow rules when it comes to face n cream based products for the eye and mascaras. You DO NOT want pimples or an eye infection due to bacteria infested cosmetics. With that being said don't forget to wash your brushes as well!!!! With lipsticks I also play the smell n texture game. I've bought new glosses that have gone bad faster than some of my older ones. I'm guessing the formula has something to do with that. As for eyeliner/lipliner pencils, well you can sharpen them n that fixes that problem. As for my powder products I keep those forever. I've never had a problem with them going bad.

**SASSE TIP:: If you don't use your liquid foundation often (like me), you can put it in the fridge to make it last a lot longer.

Oil-free foundation: 1 year
Cream or compact foundation: 18 months
Concealer: 12-18 months
Cream blush: 12-18 months
Cream eyeshadow: 12-18 months
Liquid eyeliner: 3-6 months
Mascara: 3 months!!!!!!
Lipstick: 2 years+
Lip gloss: 18-24+ months

Hope you found this helpful!
