Just received a complaint from one of my readers about how she bought this new Foundation from a well-known drug store brand and when she opened it up it smelt acidy and weird. Well thank god that she has a strong sense of smell or that foundation might have caused havoc to her skin!!

Ladies its important how ever much you love hoarding cosmetic brands ( I am guilty as charged) it is essential to spring clean your hoardings ideally every 3-4 months to make sure you get rid of products that have passed their shelflife!!

1.Eyes-build up of bacteria can cause eye infections!! šŸ™

  • Eyeliner/Eyepencil- 3 months
  • Eyeshadow-1-2 years
  • Mascara-3 months

2. Skin-Products that have gone bad can cause allergies, pimples, rashes, irritationĀ and ruin your skin


  • Foundation-5-12 months (the foundation begins to stink towards the end of its life)
  • Concealer-5-12 months (the colour begins to shift)
  • Face Powder-1-2 years
  • Cream Blush-1 year
  • Powder Blush/Bronzer-1-2 years

3.Lips- Darkening, around the mouth infections due to bacteria build up

  • Lipliner-1 year
  • Lipstick-1 year
  • Lipgloss-6months-1 year

Make sure to clean your make-up brushes everyday (I use baby shampoo and my bestie uses Sephora’s brush cleaner)

Take care ladies, throw out the old and bring in the new!!

Stay Stylish!!

Much love
