If you keep your cosmetics for too long, you could cause breakouts and potential infection in your skin. As a rule of thumb, liquid foundation should only be kept for 6 months, lipstick for 8 months, powdered makeup for 1 year, and mascara for 2 to 3 months. How long do you keep your cosmetics?
what if i havent open the package of the lipstick or other make-up yet?
I am from Bangladesh and we dont get good cosmetics over here. so on my way back from Australia I bought a hell lot of cosmetics (including shampoo n all) with me and almost half of them are unused (still inside the packet) and got the sticker that shows that it can be used upto " 6 months after First use".Can i use them ?
Unopened skin care products should be stored in a cool, dry, place away from light, heat, and humidity. So storing unopened products in a humid bathroom isn't the best idea.
Once opened products can deteriorate if stored in a hot and humid environment. Skin care anti-oxidants can deteriorate in the presence of light so you may want to keep them in a drawer or medicine cabinet.
Regardless of when you bought them, if they smell "off" or if they have separated (like foundations and nail polishes), then it's likely they have gone bad and you should toss them out.
Remember that mascaras should be replaced once opened every 2 to 3 months.
Many manufactures will place an expiration date on their products. The reason for this is that some makeup products contain active ingredients or preservatives that may not be as effective past a certain date. Clearly if the packaging has been opened or tampered with you should not use it. Using a product beyond the expiration date may run the risk of a potential allergic reaction or bacterial contamination .
The fact that you are wondering if you should use it implies that you are already concerned. Using an outdated product because of the "price" may not be the best choice.
