Frugal Friday: Extend the life of your mascara


I saw this tip on Pinterest a while ago and since my current mascara was in that nasty, clumpy, should-have-thrown-it-out-three-days-ago stage, I decided to give this a try.  I just put a couple drops of my contact solution (regular eye drops would work, too) in the mascara bottle and pumped the wand a few times to stir it up.  I swear it was like magic - my mascara was liquid smooth again!  By using this method a couple more times I was able to get 2 more weeks out of that bottle of mascara and never had any more clumps.  Just think of all that mascara I almost wasted.  :P

  3. Great idea. Since I only wear mascara when I am going out to the ballet or symphony or such I don't use it much. I won't have to buy mascara for years now.

  4. Not a bad idea. However mascara is a perishable item once opened its exposed and bacteria can find their way into the tube. I recommend doing the smell test first - if it smells rancid don't try to add solution to extend the life. The smell is a sign that bacteria have colonized and called your tube of mascara home.
