I am really great at throwing away mascara when it is past its prime, but with the other things I am bad. I have eyeshadow colors from god knows how long ago and as soon as I start to think about throwing it away, in the back of my mind I think.. oh I may need that color some day. Just curious as to what your rule is when it comes to getting rid of make up items. I don't know why but I get rid of clothes better than make up!!
