  • Expired foundation can cause bacterial contamination
    and uneven application .

  • I wouldn't. I realize that products are dated for their shelf life, but as a rule, it's not good once the date has expired. The first poster is correct, it can contain bacteria.

  • I didn't even know Make expired.
    If it looks nasty, i wouldn't use it.
