I'd love to hear your ideas and thoughts on make up!
My haul is just starting to grow again as I've dunked most of 'em in the trash a couple of months ago. I realized that there are so many rules about make-ups and it should be followed, or else.. regret it. here are some of the facts that I learned and all of us should know about.

Thank you to iVillage for the article, Are your cosmetics past their use-by date? by Eva Gizowska. The following is a simple guideline to follow when you are cleaning out your makeup bag.

* Oil-Free Foundation: 1 year
* Cream or Compact Foundation: 18 months
* Concealer: 12-18 months
* Powder: 2 years
* Blush and Bronzer: 2 years
* Cream Blush: 12-18 months
* Powder Eye shadow: 2 years
* Cream Eye shadow: 12-18 months Eyeliner: 2 years
* Liquid eyeliner: 3-6 months
* Mascara: 3 months
* Lipstick: 2 years
* Lip liner: 2 years
* Lip gloss: 18-24 months
* Nail Color: 1 year

So technically, make-up can last only upto a year and anything that has been with you longer than that should be carefully examined well and swatch tested every now and then.

They also mentioned that some make up, especially MAC COSMETIC lasts for 10 years or more if kept in a good condition.

What do you think? I love to hear your comments! :)
