The only things that I do throw away are mascaras after about 3 - 4 months, but I only buy drugstore normally.
I smell lipgloss regularly and throw away after approx 2 years I try to use up before I open a new one and not have too many open at the same time!

All make up that I only use on myself I only control by checking the color, smelling it and being aware of how they feel on my skin. I would never throw an item away if it's working properly in all ways.

Agreed. I think that's unnecessary. I think with all the make up I have I'd end up throwing out a lot more then I actually use up.

i think i agree with some things in the article... but what do you think about a foundation with a pump on it? it has technically never been opened. do you think it would have a longer shelf life?

I disagree with the part on powder blushers. I have 2 or 3 powder blushers that are as old as er..6 yrs old..and i still use them occasionally. And so far nothing happened.
And yeah it's a mac blush... I won't keep a drugstore powder blush for more than 1.5 yrs though.
Well, for me as my skin doesn't reacts, the make up's a keeper. If i were to follow the article above i would have MANY to throw out. And i dun wanna do that.
No way m i throwing out my eyeshadows after 3mths. It's ridiculous. How am i goin to finish an eyeshadow in 3 months UNLESS i have only one or 2 colors and i keep using those 2 colors EVERYDAY. Duhz.
But i do agree with the mascara part and lipstick part. Though i'm guilty of keeping lip colors that are 4 yr old and er still using them :x

Oh I'm amazed for Eyeshadow and Blush , I thought that we can take it more than 3 month ! At least one years... Well I'll take it more than they said. I mean as you said, look at the price we can't do that.
But for Fondation I agree, I do that. Thanks you for sharing !

I'm guilty of having shadows and blush for a lot longer. Because I have so many colors I don't wear the same things everyday. I noticed on the MAC products though, if it's a mascara or cream or something, they have a little garbage can pic and then says 3m or 6m or however long it's good for after you open it
