I never knew make up had an expiration date or a limited shelf life and a colleague had informed me that make up is only good for about six months or so. I did a little research turns out most make up have a 1-year shelf life.
Sorry to say I do not and never have followed this rule or guide line. If it wasn’t because my house burned 3yrs ago I would still be using my mom had from the 80s and let me tell you it lasted and looked better than some of my new stuff.
After the fire, I restocked my make-up bag and yes, I still have stuff that is 3+ years old. My rule of thumb is if I’m not getting any allergic reaction and it still looks good and isn’t irritating my skin I’m not tossing it out. Nevertheless, I will say this, I do know when it’s time to let make up go and buy new supplies.
My mascara was getting dry and clumpy so I went out to my local CVS and of course looked for what was on sale. Turns out Cover Girl Lash Blast Waterproof Mascara - Very Black $6.99: was on sale for a $1 off so I picked it up. Well I must say that I love it! The bristles on the wand are small for optimal coverage and indeed elongate the lashes. My favorite part is that it doesn’t clump and it doesn’t give you raccoon eyes the next morning.
I love me some black liquid liner there is something about that black angled line that just makes you look sexy, but am always open to alternatives. On that same make-up outing I came across Wet n Wild Mega Eyes Crème Eyeliner – Black $3.99; it is pretty good, I like it. It is very smooth and definitely long lasting. It was easier to apply on to my BFF but after a little practice, I have it down the self-application. It is not applied like most conventional liquid liners, but does give you the same effect; it is applied with a brush and applies effortlessly.
I recommend both of these beauty buys and suggest you go out and give them a try. They are good working products and are cost effective.
