So worry not! We’re here with a few signs that you should be on a lookout for to know when it’s time for your makeup products to hit the bin!
Makeup Products Secrets and Tips
A foul stench
This is kind of a natural instinct when it comes to literally anything ranging from food items to even clothes. So it should pretty much be applied to makeup products as well. Of course, makeup has fragrance in it to make it smell nice and to conceal the smell of chemicals but over time that fragrance also has a life and the product decay can cause it to diminish.
You should be looking for a tangy or unusual smell in your makeup products like foundation, liquid blushes or highlighters, and mascaras to know when they have completed their life.
Difference in the original texture
This difference is the most noticeable in mascaras and foundations. When a mascara has completed its life, it will start to clump up and the product will start to separate. In the case of a foundation, the liquid will start to dry and crack up and the oil will start to separate from the foundation pigment.
This is the time for you to throw away these products. Similar changes can be noticed in other makeup products as well so you should always be on a lookout for it.
This change is again the most prevalent in lipsticks, foundation, and in any creamy product. Once the product starts to go back, you will start to notice a slight grey and brown undertone growing under the original color. This is when the product has completed its life and the pigment in each product is now being taken over by the bacteria.
Be sure to look out for these signs to spare your skin all that damage and infection. Sure, the products may be expensive or your favorites but their repercussions might not leave your skin in the state in which you can even any longer put on any makeup. So save yourself the mess and replace your makeup every now and then.
