How do you know when to toss old makeup away, other than waiting to see if the texture has changed, or if it smells funny?

I'm going to be entirely unhelpful and say, don't bother with it in the first place. :-P

It is advised that you toss out your make up after about 12 months I think. I wouldn't wait too much longer than that. By the time it changes texture, consistency, colour and smell, it is probably way too late. I wouldn't be continuing to put it on my skin/ lips. Chemicals can change over time, so who knows what it would do to our delicate skin.
I know some have used by dates. But I think 12 months is the general rule.
They say 12 months.
I see that Joan finally plucked those eyebrows. Hahahahahahahahaha.

I wore some liquid makeup from an old little tube, years ago. We gone to visit them, via a 3 hours train trip. By the time we arrived I had a very bad rash on my face! They took me to their Dr, & he suggested I use a moisturiser for sensitive skin. I throw out the tube of makeup when we arrived home, & never got around to opening the $16 container of the cream, which is still sitting on a shelve in the en-suite!

I don't use it, so cannot comment

In my experience, powder makeup lasts longer than cream and liquid. Some last up to 2 years without any strange smell, but then I can't bring myself to use them after that. I used to change mascara every 3-6 months to avoid bacteria, but I don't use them anymore since that's quite costly if one considers how many products I need to purchase. Still, I use organics cosmetics, so that can't apply to everyone else.
