No, I throw it out when it starts to get into a condition that I cant use it ( like when some eye shadow gets that hard covering type crap over it) or when its out. If it still looks usable to me then i use it Laughing

Um, no. I’m really bad about things like this. Mascara, etc, I go through quickly enough that it doesn’t matter. And my everyday eye shadow I go through quickly. But I have a few browns and bronzes that are about a year old!

Yeah, if I use it rarely, I end up not throwing it out when I should. the stuff I use everyday gets used up too fast.

I try to clean it out every three months or so.. but im a sucker for makeup shadow pallets and I end up keeping them for about 9 months.. :S other than that my foundation I go through pretty quickly… and blusher. I cannot go a day without blusher, otherwise I look a bit vampirish with my pale colouring.

No way!!!!

I throw eyeshadow etc out when it’s done LOL and mascara and eyeliner (wet) when it gets grungy. But sometimes I just add a bit of water to make it last longer… is that bad?????

This is TOTALLY off topic, but…
@ccranetobe- I have a friend from australia and I used to love hearing the different words he used for things. Like you saying blusher and I saw another post where I saw a girl write stag night (instead of bachelorette/bachelor) Anyways, not that there’s anything wrong with saying blusher, I just enjoy seeing the difference. 🙂 Do you find the way we phrase things on here amusing at times?
 
@okqueenbee- sorry for going off topic! I never throw my eyeshadows out when I’m supposed to, but I always clean my brushes. Hopefully that makes up for it! haha!

Ha ha ha ah ha no way! I don’t wear make up enough to actually justify throwing it out! I think I’ve had the same brown eye shadow since high school… 5 years ago!

Heck no! Like you said make up isn’t cheap, so I use what I can..lol. I’ve used eye makeup that has been like 2 years old lots of times and have never had any problems with my eyes, except that I have to wear glasses but that’s not from eye makeup because I’ve had to wear glasses since I was 6.  When I get  an eye infection maybe I will…maybe.

I don’t typically throw out makeup unless it’s no longer usable.  However, I do recommend that you throw away any products that go near your eyes if you ever get an eye infection.  I am a pharmacy student and it’s crazy how many people get upset about this… If you keep using it, you will most likely re-infect yourself (or if only one eye was infected, it will probably end up in both eyes).  In that case, just throw it away!

I don’t throw mine out either. I only use my makeup on me, so i’m not honestly that worried about it.

Okay, I have concealer that I use daily ONLY under my eyes, to cover up the dark circles.  It takes me over a year to get through the bottle, and the tiny bottle is like $35! I’m not about to throw that out before it’s gone.

Just mascara. A lot of my eyeshadows are a couple of years old. If I notice a change in them, I would for sure throw them away – but they are the same.
