How Old is Your Lip Gloss?
We're guessing pretty old. And while using gloss that's past its prime
isn't going to kill you, it's still a good idea to replace it every
nine months or so. (All that opening and closing can cause bacteria to
get trapped inside.) But really, how can you be expected to remember
when you bought your lip gloss? With this dilemma in mind, makeup
company Cargo has just added Timestrip technology to its Classic Lip
Gloss (in the tube form). When you're ready to open the gloss for the
first time, simply press the Timestrip label down into the cap to
activate it. After nine months, the entire window on the cap will turn
red, signaling to you it's time to toss your gloss. How cool is that?
Sort of gives new meaning to the phrase "time in a bottle." Available for $22 at Sephora.com.
