XOXO,Girls. Welcome December ! From lipstick to mascara, from foundation to nail polish, do you have a clue about when should you toss them? Today Ovonni tell you the lifespan of those cosmetic items.
ovonni tips When need to replace that beauty products
1> Makeup Sponges Toss it: At least once a month
The reason: If you’re really diligent about cleaning your makeup sponges, then they can last up to a month. And even then they need to be washed after every use. Otherwise you should toss them after every application. Luckily, makeup sponges are pretty inexpensive at most online or offline stores.
2> Mascara Toss it: Every 3 months
The reason: In order to prevent an eye infection (bacteria love to hide away in these pretty tubes), replace your mascara four times a year. Plus, by three months your mascara will likely be dried up and cakey anyway. When you’re applying mascara pumping the tube can cause it to dry out faster, instead twirl the brush inside to decrease the amount of air that gets in.
3 >.Eyeliner Toss it: 3-6 months
The reason: Gel and liquid liners that are applied with a brush should be tossed every six months to avoid an eye infection. Eye pencils and retractable pens have a longer shelf life since they’re constantly getting sharpened or worn down. Just in case you don’t use them up in a year, they should meet the trash can after the first anniversary.
4>. Lip Gloss Toss it: 6 months to 1 year
The reason: Lip gloss in a tube with a wand applicator should bite the dust after 6 months due to bacteria build up. But the good news if you have lip gloss in a squeeze tube is that you can hold on to those for closer to a year since bacteria has a much smaller chances of getting in the product.
5>. Concealer Toss it: 12 to 18 months
The reason: If you have concealer in a pan (like the one pictured), it can last up to 18 months if you apply it wth a regularly-washed brush or sponge. If you apply with your fingers, though, you’re more likely to transfer bacteria. If you have concealer in a tube with a wand you’ll only want to keep it in your makeup bag for a year before it starts to turn.
6> Eyeshadow Toss it: Every 2 years for powder, once 1 year for cream
The reason: Just like powder blushes and bronzers, powder eyeshadows can last up to two years. But if you apply it every day, beware that bacteria build up could result in an eye infection (not a good look), so be sure to keep brushes clean. If you’re using a cream-based eyeshadow toss it after one year.
7> Blush & Bronzer Toss it: Every 2 years
Powders, since they don’t contain oils and water, have a longer shelf life than most other cosmetics. As a rule of thumb, toss these when the color darkens or starts to cake up. And while these products aren’t as succeptible to bacteria build up, be sure to wash your brushes
frequently to keep them clean.
8> Makeup Brushes Toss it: 1 to 2 years
The reason: Brushes can have a varied lifetime depending on how high quality they are and how often you wash them. Quality brushes that you maintain really well can last for years! You should wash your brushes every day if you use them every day (but if it’s once a week you’re probably ok!). Clean brushes will help your other makeup products last longer as well, and your makeup will look better when applied with well-kept tools.
