How long does makeup last?

So, when is it time to let go of your favourite makeup products? Even though they may still be doing the same job they did on the day you opened them, makeup products do carry a sell-by date and yes, it can be found on some of the packaging, so keep an eye out for it!

We should all be aware that any makeup product, once opened is open to germs. The longer you keep it, the more chance of an infestation! It does often depend on the brand and product type, but here is a run down of how long is too long to keep your products.

Concealer -About two years but once opened you can expect your concealer be usable for about six months with every day use. The oil within concealer will start to visibly separate once it has over-aged.
Powder - Although the actual product may not last you this long, pressed and loose powder can be kept for up to eighteen months once opened. The one thing you do need to be cautious of is how you apply it to the skin. Using the same sponge for this long would obviously not be very skin friendly or foundation friendly! These should be replaced every few months.
Liquid foundation - Oil-based liquid foundation can last you up to nine months, but the same rules apply as to powder foundation, depending on your application method, always keep it clean. Water-based foundation can last for up to six months. As with concealer, a separation can be seen when you've kept the product too long.
Eye liner - An eye pencil can last for up to six to 12 months depending on how often you use it and regular sharpening will keep it clean. A retractable eye liner can last longer as it has a little more protection. But if you use them everyday they should be replaced every 3/4 months.
Lip liner - It is a similar story to eye liner. Everyday use will mean the product will have a life-span of up to 4 months.
Eyeshadow - This is the one product whoch can be kept for a couple of years and, even with everyday use, can last up to 12 months. Cream eyeshadow will only last around 10 months as it's easier for bacteria to grow in a cream.

Lipstick/Lipgloss - Lip products can last for around 2 years, but if you store your lipstick in the fridge it can last even longer! With everyday use a lipstick can last up to twelve months, although lipsticks can show their age through consistency and scent - if this happens it's time to say goodbye.
Mascara - Has a surprisingly short life-span of three to six months (depending on the brand). As soon as you open your new mascara the product begins to dry out with air exposure. And the pumping back and forth of the brush will also reduce the life-span as you are only pumping in more air and drying it our faster. Mascaras are probably the worst makeup product for encouraging the growth of bacteria.
Some Tips
Although some makeup products may not last you very long, the better you care for them the better their performance. Here are a few tips on how to care for your makeup and keep it in tip top condition while it lasts.

  • Not how it used to be - Smellwise? Lookwise? Feelwise? If so, throw it away. Chances are it has gone by its expiry date and should be disposed of straight away for the sake of you and your face!
  • Keep your products clean. Always clean your make up brushes regularly with a makeup brush cleanser.
  • Don't share. Although it's fun to get ready with friends, be wary when sharing makeup products because, as I mentioned before, they can carry germs and bacteria.  

DIY: Natural Blackhead Removal

Blackheads are a very common skin condition where oil becomes trapped in the open pores of the skin and clogs them up. It’s so common, in fact, that most people have had blackheads and will continue to get them anytime that oil clogs their skin’s pores. They can be especially frustrating because they appear as noticeable black spots on the skin, which is caused by the oil blockage in the pore becoming oxygenated and turning black. In short: if you have skin, pores and oil, and you are in any type of atmosphere where dust, dirt and bacteria can come into contact with your skin, you will experience blackheads here and there. 
1. Baking Soda & Water
Haha..nope, baking soda is not just for baking. Apparently, it’s good to “extract” blackheads without irritating the skin or enlarging the pores. By mixing equal amounts of baking soda and water, make a solution and rub it for few minutes. Now wash off with luke warm water and some of your blackheads would be removed.
2. Oatmeal Mask
Okay, you might think it’s weird but it’s good! All you to do is to mix oatmeal powder with water and apply this natural mask on your blackhead prone area. This is a very effective remedy for blackheads and checks future out break as well. I've made a blogpost about a oatmeal mask before (here)
The Results?
The first method using baking soda is more effective in removing blackheads, almost 90% are gone. The oatmeal method on the other hand, is good in reducing your pores size. Maybe you can try it out and see the results yourself.

Review: Dior 5 Couleurs Garden Edition Spring 2012

The new palette for spring doesn’t have much in the way of a description, but based on Dior’s other five-pan palettes, their eyeshadows are supposed to have rich, versatile colors that are designed for easy application and long wear. The drier consistency definitely helps these wear longer without creasing (without the aid of a primer), though I did find there was some slight fading after eight hours. The price of the palette is €56,50
