[bigletter]As I started exploring the world of makeup, I realised it’s important to know how long a product is good for use. In fact, it’s the most important thing of all. As using expired or damaged makeup can be a cause of many skin problems including acne and premature ageing. I did some research and realized that every makeup product has its own shelf life. Also, no two products are the same. Eye makeup like mascaras has the shortest shelf life because of the number of bacteria it can collect. Similarly, oil-based products have to be discarded earlier as compared to powder-based products. There is a different time span for different products depending on the nature of the product. The following is a chart which you can use for your reference. [/bigletter]

The chart shows the approximate shelf life of different makeup products

Product Shelf life
Mascara Six months
Liquid or Gel Eyeliner Six months
Pencil eyeliner Two years
Lip gloss Two years
Lipstick and Lip Liner One year
Concealers One year
Cream compact foundation One year
Cream shadows and blushes One year
Powders (including blushes, bronzers, and shadows) Two years
Apart from these time lines, you need to discard your makeup when it tends to bleed. Or loses its colour or smell. Also, if your makeup changes its texture or looks weird, probably it has become unfit for use. Remember makeup can become unfit for use due to various reasons, like extreme weather conditions, improper storage etc.
