Hi, I'm Kristen Packard, and today I'm going to talk to you about how long you can keep an unopened lipstick. When you purchase your product on the box there should be a small symbol that looks like a jar. Inside the jar there should be a number. Most commonly it will say 6M or 12M or 24M, something like that. What that means is that the shelf life on the lipstick is 6M would be six months. So if you have a lipstick unopened a general rule of thumb if that symbol is not on the box is to ditch it after a year and go out and get a new product. If you've received a lipstick as a gift or you're unsure of how long the shelf life is on he lipstick, a good rule of thumb is to take notice on whether your lipstick starts to develop any weird odors or if the texture of the lipstick has started to change or become grainy, it's a good idea to probably get rid of that lipstick and get a new color. Thanks so much for watching. My name is Kristen Packard and today I've talked to you about how long you can keep an unopened lipstick.
