Hello lovelies. I'm going through a bit of a rough patch in life/ blogging slump at the moment so the computer is the least of my worries. My sincere apologies for the sporadic postings....
However, I came across this article on Harper's Bazaar and I thought it may be useful to you guys as well. I have always wanted to know the shelf-life of certain cosmetic products and am much more aware of it now since the weather is getting hotter and I want to use my products hygienically.

Elizabeth Arden Flawless Finish Maximum Coverage Concealer in Light 02. A long name for such a itty-bitty pot of concealer. But seriously, it's the cutest compact with a mirror that I have ever used.
