See before and after.
thats cool! How long can you keep eye shadow before you should throw it away?
Eye shadows pencils markers or mascara should never be used for more than one year once exposed to oxygen. Most companies say that you should use a product for no more that 6 months once opened, but I find that difficult to believe. I use mine rarely and i usually write date of opening that product somewhere on it so i would know how long ago i got it and when the year passes. :) Be careful!
