I have a confession. There are beauty products that I purchased in college still sitting in my overcrowded makeup case. And no, I don’t mean graduate school. Even worse, there are times when I’ll even test them out to see if they’re still usable. I know, it’s disgusting, and I need to do better. However, according to a recent survey conducted by Stowaway Cosmetics and Poshly, many of you probably need to join me. The survey not only spoke to our terrible makeup hoarding habits but also, how wasteful we are when it comes to beauty products. Check out some of the studies more interesting findings below.
Most of us aren’t finishing our makeup.
We’re holding onto makeup past their expiration dates
Even if they’re so old, they’re causing breakouts
We’re purchasing way more items than we need
We hold onto the products with the shortest shelf lives for the longest periods of time
Shameful! Lol, let us all try to do better.
