        I have used Bare Minerals since it was First advertised on television, (20 or 30 years ago.).
        One had to order whatever color you thought was right for you. Then ULTA Beauty arrived in
        town with ALL the colors and different items.
        I am 70 years old, just started a new job with a very high end firm. No one has any idea of
        my age. Thank You Bare Minerals!!!!

                    A:

                    Hello Gorgeous! It all depends on how often you use it and at what rate. It doesn't "go bad", however we would recommend replacing it after a year if it hasn't been used up.
