Have your say

If ever there was a competition for the most disgusting make-up bag I am sure I would win it hands down.

We have all been there girls haven’t we?

Manky mascara, eye pencil shavings, that Miners pearlescent blue shadow that you kept in hope of learning how to apply it properly.

You know the one – the one lurking like a dirty secret at that bottomless pit of your cosmetic bag since the seventies, not to mention broken lids and other crud.

All make-up has an expiry date.

Using your trusty three-year-old mascara wand will not make you go blind but it could irritate your eyes.

My bag is no longer a shameful secret as I have cleaned up my act.

However, I still have that eye shadow from my youth!
