Let's face it, every girl loves her makeup kit. If you're anything like me, you tend to save up on daily expenses so that you can splurge on massive makeup products. Words like Lakme, MAC, Maybelline, Revlon, and Colorpop are used by you more than anything else. You've watched thousands of makeup tutorials online and you're probably the master of the art by now.
Being a makeup addict is pretty awesome, but have you noticed the symbols on your makeup products? If you have, have you ever wondered what they mean? Here's a quick guide.
Some might be addicted to their electronics or to their fancy cars. But you're just happy with your makeup stuff.
You should check something first.
You might have seen it, but do you know what it means?
Spot anything unusual? The "12M" at the back of the product means the number of months the product will stay good. Basically, you have 12 months before the product expires.

If you can't remember when you opened new makeup products, we've got a quick trick for that as well.
That's the easiest way to protect yourself from expired makeup products.
