My Mascara Smells!


Went to use my mascara today and noticed it smelled kind of “bad”.

I also noticed my eyes have itched the last couple days. Gonna throw this mascara out and buy a new one. Not gonna risk it! Sound familiar? That’s because believe it or not all makeup expires! Here is the average shelf life of all your daily make up.

  • Foundation: Water-based up to 12 months, oil-based up to 18 months.
