We just found this fascinating article on Mother Nature Network that talks about how long you should keep everything from mascara to blush brushes. A few especially interesting points:

  • Sharpen eye and lip pencils once a week to keep bacteria from building up.
  • Keeping lipstick in the refrigerator can extend its shelf life.

If you’ve got old lipsticks lying around that could use some natural, non-toxic replacements, don’t forget to bring them into a Pharmaca before March 1 to get $5 a new lipstick or gloss from Juice Beauty, Dr. Hauschka or Zuzu Luxe!
