    Default Does make up go off?

    Well I'd say it does but what my Q is, is when? And How often do you ditch yours? I've had the same little stash for 3 years and I'm wondering if I should do a clean out the eyes shadows are looking a tad weird!

    Thanks

    Oh wow I've never noticed any of my make up go funny, but I also don't like using anything 'old' I'd say it's about time you replaced it

    Yes!!! Most should have exp date on the bottle/ container.

    Blush you can be more lenient with, but Mascara is the biggie, people like to "pump" the mascara to try get more on the wand, which lets more air in and helps nasties breed - most say 6 months but I'd recommend replacing every 3 months!
    (I'm a beautician and make up artist)

    I try to replace anything to do with my eyes every 6-12 months. Mascara is easy as I use sample sizes (I always get Clinique samples at gift time and haven't bought a mascara since 2006!) and eye shadows/creams I have 2 or 3 on the go and use them up within that time frame.

    I will admit to having one rather expensive set of blue shades that I only ever use for special occasions. I bought it in 2008 and can't bring myself to ditch it because it's still barely touched!

    Right thanks girls. Since having bub I just don't use it all as much ill just ditch it. I'm more of a blush mascara girl these days. The eyeshadows look weird! I can't find the exp date on them!
