    Are your old MAC lipsticks still safe to use?

    I got Russian Red in 2014, used it a couple of times but there is still plenty of product. It still smells like vanilla and I see no changes. I disinfect my MAC lipsticks a couple of times a year, store them away from light and mostly use a clean lip brush for application (otherwise just straight from the tube).

    But they say to toss your lipstick after some time.
    I have purchased alot of MAC lipsticks since Russian Red and I can't believe you have to throw them into the trash so early.

    What are your opinions about this?

    Test it out. If it affects you aversely, set it aside for Back2MAC and get a new one. If not... :shrug:
