I did a spot of spring cleaning over the weekend, clearing out my cosmetics stash and destashing, basically. One of the areas I concentrated on was lipsticks or lip products in general.
When you mess around with different lipsticks all the time, its easy to forget lipsticks you once had or used. So, I spent a couple of hours checking to see if my lipsticks and lip products were still alright and in the process, sent some of them into the bin.
Here’s when you should toss out your lipstick or lipgloss:-
- When your lipstick smells funny – lipsticks have a lot of preservatives in them, but it all has to go some time and when your lipstick smells different from how it should, that’s when you know its going into the bin.
- When your lipstick smells waxy – Take a healthy sniff of your lipstick and if it smells of wax and not lovely scented wax at that, but just pure wax, toss it.
