Makeup Shelf Life

If you’re anything like me, you have a drawer (or two) full of makeup that you only use “sometimes”.  Unfortunately, these things don’t last forever.  So, here’s a quick guide on the shelf life of your typical makeup products – but, keep in mind these are estimates and different products will vary.

Concealer: 12-18 months
Powder: 2 years
Blush & Bronzer: 2 years
Cream blush: 12-18 months
Eyeliner pencil: 2 years
Liquid eyeliner: 3-6 months
Powder eyeshadow: 3 years
Cream eyeshadow: 12-18 months
Foundation: water-based = 1 year; oil-based = 18 months
Lip liner: 3 years
Lipstick: 2 years
Lip gloss: 18-24 months
Mascara: 4 months
Nail polish: 1 year

*Makeup brushes: any brush you use for liquid makeup should be cleaned every day.  For other brushes, you should clean them every 2 weeks.
