The Great Oz at Urban Decay

I have been anticipating to watch this re-make of L. Frank Baum’s book The Wonderful Wizard of Oz .  Since it was a favorite story of young children including me. So,i guess the inspiration for the new Urban Decay make up collection is perfectly timing. It depicts the image of good and bad.

Two extremely gorgeous limited edition is available for all the beautyholics  out there.  If you love sweet and fierce look, this palette is definitely a must try. It features never before seen shades.

You can even recreate Michelle Williams’ ethereal, spellbinding look from the film with The Glinda Palette or try Mila Kunis’ captivating, edgy onscreen look with The Theodora Palette  or i think you can even combined a more fiercefull look like Evanora.

Get rid of your old make-up – How to know if it’s time to throw away

If your a make-up addict like me, you might have your make-up filing like crazy and I bet, some of them are still in your closet, either wrapped in plastic or it’s original packaging waiting for you to use them.  It’s good to have a lot of choices but you might also consider the time frame of cosmetics of how long you can keep them on your shelf.

Yes, they could not stay for long as you want them or until you can finally consume it up to the last drop or until it was fully consumed. You will know if it’s time for you to throw away those precious cosmetics. As a general rule, when it is dry ,  the longer of its shelf life but in terms of lotion or creams and liquids , here is the average period you can keep them;

1/2 half year for Mascara and liquid eye liner. Creamy lipsticks, lip colors in pots, lip-gloss: 2 years.  For pencils (eyebrows, lips and eye, 3 years.

While the powder based products like pressed powder, blush on, eye shadow and loose powder, it’s only good for two years.  While liquid and cream products only last for one year.

Good to hear though that your favorite body lotion and shower gel could last for 3 years. While anti-aging cream can last up to 3 months to 1 year but i doubt it can last that long considering that it is much needed product.  I regularly consume them for two months.

Here are some hints that you can throw them away;

Smell the product.  Our nose tells it all, if you think that you already smell a foul odor, there should no longer second thought about throwing it away.

Study the product – yes, you love your favorite blush on and you keep it only for special occasion but the longer it is in your shelf, it might developed some molds and it’s no longer good to use.  When you scrape it and you see that it is already drier, no doubt, you need to throw them away.

The longer you keep your cosmetics on your shelf, the more tendency for them to develop molds and bacteria and who wants bacteria on their precious skin? I bet, you won’t like to have acne or pimple problems.
