How long do you keep lipsticks?

I went through my stash a few years ago, but I still have some older lipsticks that I wear sometimes. So, I'm wondering how long we can keep a lipstick, or when do we have to throw it out?

It's hard for me to find colors I like at reasonable prices, so I really hate to throw them out if they're ok. :?

    i've heard that lipsticks are only supposed to last about a year.

    however....

    i've had some that have made it to 3 years and most take about 2 years before they turn rancid.

    and you'll know they've gone bad from the smell!

    yeah, I had a couple I threw out--they smelled bad. The rest look and smell ok. I'll have to try using the older ones more often, or if I don't use them I'll toss them too.

    thansk rou! I knew I could count on you. :)
