Is Your Makeup Expired? We've Got The Shelf Lives Of All Your Products Here

As ladies, it’s pretty much our natural born right to hoard piles and piles of beauty products, but much like beauty itself, the products that you (well, if you’re anything like me) rely on to diminish under-eye bags, cover blemishes and perk up your peepers won’t last forever. I can’t imagine that many women bother to catalog when they opened each lipstick, eyeshadow, moisturizer or nail polish, but you should always have a good idea of when you purchased your makeup. Hint: if you can’t remember that far back, it’s probably time to purge.

Not only do some products lose their potency over time — oxidation is the unfortunate destiny of most anti-aging moisturizers — but others can become breeding grounds for bacteria, making them downright unsafe after a few months. Because tricks like adding non-alcoholic toner to your water-based foundation or adding acetone to clumpy nail polish will only take you so far, it’s better to find out if the gas-like smell permeating through your mascara is normal (it’s not). Find out if it’s time to invest in a new tube by clicking through.
