  2. Whooo! Thanks for posting this sis! I bookmarked it. From now on I'm going to track the expiration dates of my makeup :)


  3. we really need to know the expiration of our cosmetics

  4. The same with food, expired cosmetics are dangerous to use.
    I hope the items were being used before expiry - if too much item, might give to friends.

  5. Our skin can be really sensitive so having expired products touching it may really cause harm.

  6. I have no idea that a makeup has an expiration just like other related cosmetics like face powder, eyeliner, makeup foundation, among others. I don't know if I am saying it right.

  7. Girls should really read this blogpost. I mean, I am not a girl and I don't know anything about make ups and all, but reading this post makes me realized that girls should not just use cosmetics without really knowing about the product. Thanks for a very educational post.

  8. Aw! Sayang naman yan sis sana binigay mo na lang sakin. Hehe! Addict din ako sa pag-gamit ng make-up pero I'm not a buyer of new make-up. I want to consume muna the old one before I buy another one.
