Can I still use this product after its date?

I found out on YouTube that mascara only lasts for three months after opening before it goes bad. What if you had bought a set of travel size mascaras a year before, but haven't opened the tubes yet? I got made up recently, and had this concern. On a side note, I used a six month old l/p foundation, and now I have a giant zit above my right eye.

    Throw them out. You DO need to replace your Mascaras every 3 months. The contents get old, separate, and, putting old mascara on your eyes(even if it is unopened after 3 yrs) is bad for the lashes. The foundation should have been enough to tell you NOT to use products like that for over 3 months.

    You should throw out mascara that has been opened and used for three months. It isn’t that the mascara goes bad, Bacteria forms too quickly and your eyes are sensitive.

    I would think those trail mascara are dried up. But if they have never been opened you can use them
