I didn't even realize makeup had expiration dates until recently. The eyeshadow palette I'm using says that it is supposed to last for 12 months, but it's just as good as new. What do you thinK?
Girls, Do you use makeup past the expiration date?

i avoid using them once they're expired... i don't want em' to mess up with my skin0
I don't check the expiration date.
If the lipgloss look bad/ gives a bad reaction to my lips or goes dry, then I throw it out.
I didn't know that there was expiration date for lip products.
As for eyeliners, I would have no choice but to throw them out since they would just become difficult to apply.
But I use kohl now, so that's no issue2
I didn't even know eyeshadow had an expiration date. This is news to me.
I usually throw out mascaras after several months (more than the 3-month mark that's usually recommendedand).
As for lipstick/lip gloss, I'd throw them out after a year or so because I have sensitive skin and i don't Wanna risk having some kinda reaction to expired products.1

Why doe it need one. maybe it degrades over time. doubt it becomes harmful though.1
As long as they are stored correctly (dry, cool environment) eg not in the bathroom, they should be perfectly fine, quality may decrease slightly.1
Eyeshadows are not used that much so it's common.. and yeah I would use it until it's finished.. those things are expensive.. 😐 nothing bad will happen.. they're not liquid products0
I paid a lot of money for my makeup, I will be using them until its gone. Expiration or NOT. But yeah makeup has an expiration date, it has a lot number too you can look up on cosmeticcheck or something like that.
If its past the expiration date, you can also catch an infection, there could be bugs inside it. Be careful.0

Of course. I only stop using it when it dries up.0
Make up is dumb and expensive get some Chapstick and be happy!0
Yes lol I use it until it runs out.0
Do you eat food past the expiration date?0
... never knew it had a experation date0
I have like 3 mac lipsticks that are like super old. And a makeup forever foundation thats pretty old too. Also, a liquid eyeliner & eyeshadows too lol. I still use it. If it's not broken or it hasn't ran out then why the fuck would i throw it away? I've heard that you're supposed replace your mascara every 3 months and i think that's insane. I have plenty of mascaras some old , some new and i ain't throwing any way. Makeup isn't cheap. I'd rather have an eye infection than waste money tbh.0
