  • Foundation is only good for about 4 months. Once it is exposed to hair bacteria can begin to form and the color begins to change. If it is from 2007 toss it. Nothing should be used for more than a year not even face wash or moisturizers.

  • I would use it. It starts to smell funny when it's bad.

  • I was always told to use it until the brush that came with it falls apart.

  • Toss it! The previous poster has an accurate listing of expirations for different types of make-up and applicators.
