To save money, from having to purchase mascara frequently, don't push your brush for your bottled mascara in and out repeatedly, trying to get more or less on it. Each time you do so, it dries it out more. Use what's on the brush the first time you pull the brush out.

Only put mascara on when you are leaving the house, expecting company or wanting to look good. On your days "off" give your face a rest.

i put a drop of baby oil in the tube, after the tube is about 2 weeks old. Doesn't dry out as fast then!

I put a few drops of lotion (hypoallergenic) in the tube when it is getting low. It lasts longer, and then I feel I truly am getting my money's worth.

Please be careful adding any liquids to your tube

of mascara. You may be introducing bacteria.

I like to save to however I buy new Maybeline every

90days and toss out the old, same thing with toothbrush you need to toss after 90 days for

germs. I sat in many hygiene lectures for dental

school years ago. It may sound costly but your

eyesight and teeth are worth the cost.

I never put anything in my mascara. When it starts to get dry, I put the well-closed tube into a container filled with very hot water and let it soak for a while. It seems to "melt" it and it's much fresher. I don't know why, but this seems to work for me.

When I start running low I use my blow dryer on the tube. Make sure you move the blow dryer around when you point it at the tube though.

This makes the mascara thinner and extends the use.

I've also run the closed tube under hot water for similar results
