Make Up Products are more like a part of
our lifestyle and it is very important for us 
to know them intrinsically. By that I mean it’s great to know the
ingredients of your make up line however its critical to know its shelf life.
Almost every compound involved in the process of creating your product
is a chemical or a result of a chemical reaction and with that comes
bi-products. You can call that side effects! So, you need to ensure you are
well aware as to when your products expire and under no circumstances should we
use them post their term because that’s when decay begins and bacteria
multiplies. Following are a few ways to figure out the signs of Make Up
Products Aging; strange how something that helps us hide our aging also has
an aging factor.
Rimmel Lasting Finish Foundation & Maybelline Clear Glow BB Stick.

FOUNDATION

Most foundations are water based and a very
few are powdered formulas, this factor makes foundations a breeding ground for
bacteria. Bacteriophillic!! The shelf life of a sealed, unopened foundation is
about 2 years but once the seal is broken the shelf life reduces to about 8
months depending on storage conditions. Store foundations in closures that can sustain
a cool, dry environment; it is always advised to keep foundations away from
moist environments like your kitchen and bathroom; also to keep them away from
heated areas. When you are able to trace an off smell or a change in color of
your foundation you know that the its better to let the women of bacteria-land
put on some pretty masks.
CONCEALER
Liquid Concealers have a shelf life of 1
year and powder/stick concealers could last 2 years. The moment the color of
the concealer starts shifting you know that its gone bad and unsafe to be
applied on your face. Unless you want to reverse the effect; concealers to
create blemishes not to conceal them!!
Loreal Super Liner Carbon Gloss & Maybelline Hyper Sharp Liner.
EYELINER
Liquid or pencil, like eye shadows, they
are applied near a sensitive area and can pick up bacteria and bring it back to
the eye very. If you’ve used an expired liner, you could experience redness,
itchiness, or, in extreme cases, conjunctivitis. Pencils will last a bit longer
than liquid if you’re steadfast about regular sharpening, but you’ll know
they’re expired once a white film starts to develop on the tip that can’t be
sharpened off.
Maybelline Colossal WaterProof Volum Express Mascara & Loreal Volume Million Lashes
MASCARA
It’s very dainty but something you gotta be
super careful about. Due to the numerous times that the brush is removed and
immersed in the container the chances of lingering bacteria to infect your
Mascara brush are very high. Lingering bacteria causes redness, itchiness and
one could even get infected with Conjunctivitis or Styes. I recommend you
replace your lot with a new mascara every two months to be on the safer side.
Also anytime that your mascara exhibits a distinctive gasoline like smell you
know its time for it to take a plunge into your dustbin. Your eyes are very
delicate and vital so taking extra care of what they come in contact with is
extremely important so whenever you develop any negative symptoms after using
an eye product don’t think twice..dispose and replace!
Maybelline Color Sensational High Shine Gloss in One Shine Day & Loreal 6Hrs Glam Shine Gloss in Keep The Sweet
LIPSTICK AND LIP GLOSS
The risk of the formula spoiling or growing
bacteria is low since they don’t contain any water. But since they’re
repeatedly exposed to the mouth area replacing lip products after a year, or if
you’ve recently been sick. Lipsticks and glosses contain oily ingredients that
start to smell like stale cooking oil over time, Look for changes in texture. You’ll
know a lipstick has gone bad when it gets hard and you can’t spread the pigment
on your lips; lip gloss will feel streaky and globby if you try to apply it.
Rimmel Blush in Spring Flower, Revlon Color Stay Eyeshadow in Inspired, Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette, Loreal Color Riche Eyeshadow in Eau De Rose.
BLUSH AND BRONZER
The same rules that apply to face powder
apply to powder blush & Bronzer, since neither contain water. Cream blush
should be replaced after a year. To prolong the life of any blush, clean your blush
brush regularly and store the color in a dark, dry place. .If your blush gets
wet, you run the risk of promoting bacterial growth. With powders or creams,
texture is also an indicator. If the formula has become hard it won’t budge
from the compact, it’s time to buy a new one.
EYE SHADOW
Who wants Eye-irritating shadows ? No one. Even
though they are similar in formulation to other powders, because they’re
constantly in contact with a mucous membrane, there’s a higher risk of
transferring bacteria to the product and then back to the eyes. Pay extra
attention to cream-based shadows, which tend to grow bacteria more quickly than
powders. If you use your fingers to apply, wash your hands before doing so, and
be aware of any color switches or off-putting smells.
Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder
FACE POWDER
Face Powders act as boosters of your make
up giving it the final bump and usually are not a very attention seeking member
of the product like because they can easily last for up to 2 years so no need to
replace them. But keep in mind that you should check the ingredients of your
product because some face powders do have chemicals that contain botanical
extracts like aloe, chamomile which can also cause hydration resulting in
cultivation of bacteria.
NAIL POLISH
This may just be the Wonder Product of the
beauty world: It won’t go bad from bacteria. Eventually though, lacquer will
dry out and become thick and clumpy, with the pigments settling along the
bottom of the bottle. Shake it, and if the formula remains separated, it’s gone
