UPDATE YOUR STOCK

Old makeup is disgusting. It may appear to be useful- but trust us amigo, it is not. It HOARDS bacteria-especially your mascara. That stuff is just waiting to attack you with an eye infection. Evil little thing it turns into.  Since it is it not possible to perform an Excorcism on your old beauty products (trust us, we've tried and let’s just say those demons won), here are some reminders to know when your makeup has a date with the garbage.






  • Smell. If your makeup even remotely starts smelling odd/different, then you know what to do. Mascara especially will develop an odor from all the bacteria gathering in the tube. Don’t commit makeup suicide. Ditch that sucker and buy a new one.
  • Time Elapsed. Here is a rule of how long makeup products last before you need to purchase new products.

  • MASCARA: 3 MONTHS (REMEMBER DO NOT PUMP MASCARA, IT BRINGS AIR AND BACTERIA INTO THE TUBE)
  • FOUNDATION : 1 YEAR
  • CONCEALER: 12-18 MONTHS
  • EYELINER- 18 MONTHS (REMEMBER TO SHARPEN OFTEN AND CLEAN SHARPENERS WITH ALCOHOL)
  • EYE SHADOW: 18 MONTHS
  • LIQUID EYELINER: 6 MONTHS
  • LIPSTICK: 18 MONTHS (LIPSTICK WILL DEVELOP WAX-LIKE CONSISTENCY AFTER TIME)
  • GLOSS: 18 MONTHS
