How long before you should start thinking about replacing your old makeup? How old is "old" for that matter?

I've heard that make up, especially eye make up, shouldn't be used after 6 months. It can get very contaminated and cause way more problems than it is worth.

I am really bad about this, as I wear my makeup until I run out of it. My eyeliner will last about a year, and mascara about the same. My eye shadows are so old, that I am not sure how many years I have had them.

well, makeup usually lasts quite a long time, and if there is an expiration date, best to throw it out a week or two before.

well the expiry of makeup depends upon the product life. Some of the product have life of only one month after the seal is open where some products have expiry of six months. So its better to check the product details.

i think it depends on the manufacturers expiration date, but its minimally its 6 months, well, if you think that the mascara is kinda old old to sense that its not good to use then just throw it.

i am not sure though... but as the make up gets old, you can feel that in texture and smell. It's not everyday that I apply make up and my make up last for a year or more. I just throw make ups that shows discoloration and change of texture and smell. With the expiration, can it be found somewhere?

Thanks everybody.

I suppose some of you are wondering, what does makeup have to do with contact lenses? Excellent question, and here's the short answer. Much of the makeup that women wear goes near their eyes, and so I was wondering about when you should be concerned about getting "expired" makeup in your eyes. Fortunately I've had no experience with makeup in the eye, but I suppose eye shadow powder wouldn't be as bad as dried out chunks.
