Beauty Gossip #7

I am not really feeling good today so thought of chit chatting with you guys. To continue our Beauty Gossip series, I have a very common question that we all are aware of but rarely anyone of us follows it. Today’s question is:
Do you keep using your mascara even after the expiration date?

Beauty Gossip #7

Me: The average shelf life of mascara is 2-3 months. As I throw away the outer packaging of the mascara that usually includes date, I judge its expiration when it starts changing its formula, gets clumpy or flaky and no longer works properly. Sometimes the scent gets weird too and tells you to throw away your mascara! Sharing mascara also reduces its shelf life as it spreads germs and your eyes may get infected. Even if you need to share your mascara, make sure you use disposable applicators and no double dipping please!

Now your turn guys! When do you throw away your mascara? Share in the comments section below!

Stay pretty!

  2. Megha, I seriously dont see if it is 3 months or what..but like you mentioned you check for clumps, dryness etc, so for me too these are the indicators that the mascara is dead!!
