Sitting around for a period of time without being used in any way is exactly how any product can go bad. We are not just talking about your perishables and food items but also things like your makeup. These things to be kept maintained and an eye on their expiry date is important less you mess things up for yourself. Many beauty products in particular are not really known for expiring like food items do, but some definitely can expire and it’s important to know whether you plan on finishing that item before it hits that expiry date when you consider purchasing it.
On lipstick, many oils start to smell off-putting and trying to apply that might make matters worse for yourself, never mind the fact that the shade or colour of the lipstick will be pretty off when you try to use it past that expiry date. Ingredients in some of these make-up products will separate if they are left around without use for too long and that is a disaster to find out when you have some upcoming event that you want to look on point for. Mascara in particular however, is not something you want to find out about at the last minute.
According to The Fashionable House Wife, you should be throwing out your mascara products as early as three months into their manufacture date and if you want to hold on to it, mascara products are expensive after all, the most that you should keep it around should be up to six months in. Of course, this is something that varies on the individual and the advice is only really meant to serve as a suggestion, but keeping makeup products around just like with food, offers and tickets should eventually come to an end even if you don’t use them.
