I got this question from one of the comments (specifically from Marielle) in my Fan Mail Fridays post about expired makeups-she asked if I could make a blog post regarding the life span of beauty products and that's what I did today!
I classified the common makeup products into two categories: Unused (aka Brand New) and Used. Click READ MORE for the charts-you can also download the and stick them onto your dresser so you'll be reminded when to toss away that makeup!
Brand New makeup doesn't mean it's vulnerable to expiry. If you find yourself in a makeup sale and you see beauty products at a crazy, discounted price, before hoarding, be sure to check the manufacturing date and count from there until the current year to know if they're still good to use or if you should ignore them instead.
And for the beauty products that you are currently using, be mindful of their life span. It's better safe than sorry!
TIP: To prolong a beauty product's shelf life, always store them properly and in a cool place, cover right after use, wash your hands before touching them, and don't share them with others!
Can't see the manufacturing date or it got erased? Here are tell- tale signs to look for to know if you should keep or ditch that makeup.
Hope this helps! :)
