Every lady loves doing makeup and looking flawless. It is sufficient to say that dressing up, doing makeover and looking good is one of the only thing common between most women. The thing about makeup is that not every product is used everyday that means there are few products that we all use occasionally but that does not mean that those products do not expire. On contrary to what people actually think, all the cometic products also get expired and loose their touch. When makeup gets expired it traps bacteria and becomes unsuitable for use and it is mandatory to throw the expired makeup products to avoid any kind of skin problems.


However painful it is, it is important to discard expired makeup products. But one of the main issue is to know about the shelf life of all the cosmetic products and two know when it is the time to get rid of the makeup product.
