THE LIP LAB Q & A: HOW LONG SHOULD YOU KEEP A LIPSTICK?

But, since they’re repeatedly exposed to the mouth area, you should replace lip products after a year, or if you’ve recently been sick. Lipsticks and glosses contain oily ingredients that start to smell like stale cooking oil over time, and you should look out for changes in texture.

You’ll know a lipstick has gone bad when it gets hard and you can’t spread the pigment on your lips; lip gloss will feel streaky and globby if you try to apply it.
