I would think it does expire, just like anything else. Maybe a year or two. But, I'm just guessing...lol.

I have the small smashbox primer on the back theirs like a small open jar picture with a 24 or 12 number inside and that means thats how long should it last.

I think I would toss mine after a year or so but it never lasts that long anyway.

That sounds reasonable--will watch it--this old face has already expired--can't take much more
