 I threw out all of my makeup yesterday.  Some of it was 3 yrs+ old.  I kept my mascara because that's only a few weeks old.

I'm going to buy new stuff today.

I use it until it's all gone. I rarely wear makeup though. Like maybe twice a month.

 I had an Ulta set that my mom got me 3 Christmases ago. 

The quality is wonderful, but I started thinking about all the stuff that could be living in it(I'm not a germaphobe either) and wondered how much money I'd really save if I got some sort of eye infection.

 That's part of my problem, too.  I don't use it often enough to justify a set like the one I threw away.

I rarely wear make up. My Bare Minerals always gets used up. Everything else either gets used up, DD destroys it or it gets tossed after a year!

 There were like 2 dozen eyeshadows, 8 blushes & lipglosses.  It was waaaay too much makeup for me.

I used like all the eyeshadows one time to see how crazy I looked, LOL.  Then, I mostly used 5 or six colors when I wear makeup.  It would have lasted me 10 years or so to use it all. LOL

It is good makeup though.  I'm just splurging for Revlon or Max Factor today.  One eyeshadow compact, some foundation and cream blush, a new mascara(I use that the most).

Eh, it's still nice to get to have a variety sometimes. Cuz the moment you don't you're lookin around thinkin "Well damn why'd I get rid of that now?!"

Same here. I'm a SAHM and only put make-up on if I go somewhere nice. And not even then always! But all I wear is eye liner, mascara, eye shadow and lip gloss.

I rarely wear make up, maybe once every three months or so. I usually use it until it's gone but if I see something I like I buy it even if I have another one. I have about 16 mascaras haha.
