What is the shelf life of these makeup products?


EnnSam asks:

I have some opened makeup products and was wondering what their shelf life is. By the way, is it bad for your skin to use old makeup? Anyway, I was wondering about mascara, eye liner, lip gloss, as well as facial cleansers and moisturizers. Thanks so much!

eyeliner might dry out but it probably is fine for awhile. mascara has a shelf live of about 6 months. lipgloss might dry out too, but can go for long if used daily. facial care can last a long time too.

  1. mascara- 1-2 months
    eyeliner- 5-6 months
    lip gloss- 1 year (shorter if exposed to a lot of heat)
    facial cleaners- 1 year
    moisturizers- 5-6 months to a year
    Mineral makeup should be replaced after 2 years, but doesn’t really expire.
    Mineral makeup is the only makeup I have used that isn’t that bad for skin…

  2. you should throw any opened makeup away…3 mos.replace all make up.especially mascara,and foundation. don’t let anyone else use your make-up.
