Is Your Makeup Expired? Makeup Expiration Time

You must throw your Mascara after every three months

Most ladies keep Mascaras for years but they don’t know that keeping mascaras for years can be harmful. Germs can get into Mascara because it’s tube is opened frequently. Bacteria can get into your mascara and can cause eye itchiness and eye redness. So be careful!


Depending on the quality- throw it after 1 or 2 years.

Foundations come in both liquid and powder form. If your foundation change its color, smells different or starts to separate then it means that your foundation is expired.


Eyeliner normally gets expired after every three months, depending on how much you use it. On the other hand, Pencil liners can be used for upto two years if you keep them sharpened and fresh.

Lip Sticks, Lip Liners and Lip Glosses

Lip Sticks and Lip Glosses: If your lipstick dries out or lip gloss gets more sticker than usual then it means that your products are expired and it’s better to change them.

Lip Liner: Liners can be used for two years or even more, if you keep them sharpened.

Nail Polish Expiration Time

Mostly Expires After One Year

If your nail polish gets thicker with time, then it means that it’s expired. However you can restore for a limited time period, by adding a little amount of nail polish thinner in it.

Body Lotion

Throw After Two Years

If your body lotion changes it’s color or smell different then you must throw it away. Don’t use it in expired condition because you are causing harm to your skin.

At the end, I want to say that the expiration times listed in the article are for most of the brands. Expiration times can vary depending on the quality of the product.
