Liquid and Cream Foundation-- 2 years
Concealer-- 2 years
Powder-- 2 years
Mascara-- 6 months
Lipstick-- 12 to 18 months
Lip and eye pencils 12-18 months
Eye Shadow-- 2 years
Powder blush-- 2 years
Cream blush-- 2 years
Moisturizer-- 2 years
Eye Cream-- 6 months
Sunscreen-- 2 years
Face cream-- 2 years
Info from Bobbi Brown Makeup Manual
Remember keep your cosmetics in a nice cool and dry space not only are you reducing the shelf life but the possibility of bacteria wreaking havoc on your face ugghhh not cool! A great tip from me: keep a small memo book of when you start using your products with the color it'll help do two things keep track of what you have but also let you know when its time to throw it away.  Do you have any tips? Feel free to comment below and I will add to this post. Until then live life beautifully.
