Don’t rely on your memory to tell you when you bought that perfume. To ensure you’re not using products that are past their prime, affix a dated sticker or a piece of masking tape to the bottom of the jar or tube. If your product starts to look or smell iffy, simply reference the date to see if it’s still good.

How long will your makeup last? Find out when beauty products expire.

    I am an avid user of Christian Martin Cosmetics because it has the expiration date labeled on the bottom of its containers. No more guessing for me. When you purchase makeup or perfume from the store you don’t know how long it’s been sittin on the shelf. You could be using rotten makeup which will cause major breakouts and skin irritants.
    This company was created by a woman that gets it. Love the entire brand

    I once had a perfume vendor trying to entice me to buy her brand of fragrance by throwing in several lipsticks, i asked her how long she had them and her reply was, “lipstick doesn’t expire, that’s a myth.” Needless to say, i turned around and never returned to that fragrance counter.

    I use christian martin makeup as well… I don’t wear it because of the expiration date is visible! I wear it because it’s the only one I tried that don’t irritate my skin(have sensitive skin) and it has a really good range to choose from. The foundation is by far the best tried hands down. I tried anything from 4$ foundation to 150$ foundation. I’m good with cmc
