With the constant swiveling up and down and swishing in and out of lipstick and lipgloss, these two makeup musts often end up the gunkiest offenders in cosmetic cases.

Lipstick can freshly last for up to 14 months, especially if you wipe off the bullet with a tissue and alcohol every so often to sanitize, says Elizabeth Gerbino, a freelance makeup artist with Julie Hewett Los Angeles. Lipstick begins to turn if you see beads of formula separation forming on the bullet, or if the surface becomes hard and drier.

Lipgloss is better judged by its smell and taste; if either get strong and crayon-like, the gloss has turned. And if the gloss has a doe-foot applicator, it's more prone to collecting bacteria, and should be thrown out sooner, around the 6 month mark, says Hodzic.

Julie Hewett's dramatic Femme Noir red lipcolor celebrates the season's matte look in a fierce way, while Tarte's Natural Lip Stain combines the flush of a lipstick with the naturally healthy and shiny finish of a gloss.
