Unfortunately, unlike the make-up line with the name, make-up may last a day, but it does not last forever! I love to get the most value for my make-up so it’s always a difficult day when I have to clean out my kit. But for the sake of being plain old sanitary, a little bit of pain is worth it! Here are some guidelines for when it’s time to let go, as difficult as it may be:
Each time you open the mascara tube, remove the wand and insert it back in, it pumps air into the tube which promotes for the growth of bacteria inside the tube. It’s best to not mess with a sensitive area like the eyes. Watch out for telltale signs…as soon as it starts to smell funky, it’s time to say goodbye!
Life span: 2-3 months
NOTE: Same rule applies to liquid liner. your eyes will thank you for it!
ii). PENCIL EYELINER
Pencil is usually good for a year, as long as it is sharpened frequently. Provided you use it frequently enough, most eyeliner pencils do not make it to the one year mark before you need a new one. If the eyeliner was once creamy, and you notice the product has lost its potency and no longer goes on smoothly, it’s definitely toss-it time.
Life Span: 1 year
