WHEN TO SAY GOODBYE
- Mascara (2-3 months)
- Lipstick + gloss (2 years + 1 year) // If gloss is extra sticky, like caramel, it’s definitely gone bad!
- Foundation (6-12 months) // If it separates or the color changes, toss it. Keep out of UV light as well.
- Powder bronzers, blush, foundation (2 years) // If it flakes on your skin after a few hours it’s expired.
- Skincare/moisturizers and serums (2 years) Look for pump bottles that keep airborne bacteria out.
