Did you know, make up comes with an expiration date? A date, which is not written on the packaging. There are a few tell-tale signs you should be aware of just the same for instance liquid foundation turning clumpy, thick or extra runny.
Unfortunately, there isn’t a “one-size-fits-all” solution to determine when you should dump your color cosmetics because that’s decided in large part by the product’s formulation and the method in which you store them which should always be in a cool, dry place. Because cosmetics manufacturers aren’t under a U.S. mandate to display expiration dates on their packaging, you’re then left with the task of following loose guidelines given out to us by these same manufacturers concerning the toss schedule of your products.
So here is a list to help you out with tossing out products that's past its expiration date:
Liquid and cream foundation: 2 years
