I think there is over-caution about makeup expiration.

If you look at it charitably, there is a preference to err on the side of safety for the good of the customer. Maybe that box of hair dye has been in your cupboard since the Bush administration. Maybe you don't wash your hands as often or as well as you should and your eye shadow really is disgustingly germy.

But if you look at it cynically, the beauty industry just wants to sell you a lot more stuff.

On the other hand, please use a bit more common sense. I would never share makeup or makeup brushes (or eye drops! ew!), which has got me my share of side eye from friends and roommates in the past. So maybe they're right about YOUR makeup....
