How to Make Mascara Last Longer (Easy Hack)
Revive Dry Mascara With This Simple Hack
If I could only have one item of makeup for the rest of my life, it would be mascara. I literally wear it… All. The. Time. However, I usually don’t use the super expensive mascaras because if I did, I’d probably go bankrupt. I go through the tubes too fast! 🙂
I really love this Covergirl mascara and this new Maybelline mascara because they’re pretty affordable. The only problem I’ve found with these mascaras is that they can dry up quickly (especially if I am in a hurry and don’t get the wand screwed back in all the way). I have thrown away plenty of tubes of mascara for that very reason. At $5-$15 a piece, that can get expensive very quickly.
Finding a Solution
A friend of mine once told me to put a few drops of water into my tube to revive it. I did that and it was a watery mess that ended up drying right back up very soon after. Too bad.
Not all hope was lost though. Another friend of mine had told me to use some of my contact solution or a saline solution instead. I thought, what do I have to lose, I am going to toss the dried up tube anyways, so I tried it out.
Using Saline Solution to Make Mascara Last Longer
I actually had some saline solution lying around the house because I wear contacts so that made testing this dry mascara hack pretty easy! 🙂 For this tube, I used four drops and bam – it was almost like using a brand new mascara. I was so excited!
This works on mascara tubes that are almost gone too! You know when you get to the bottom of your tube and you are only getting a small amount of mascara out or it’s clumpy? This will fix clumpy and dry mascara and it’s so simple to do!

This is a great way to save some money and buy yourself some more time before you have to go out and buy another tube of mascara. I am working on the 1-week mark since I added the saline solution and it’s still going great! This tube was basically done and I was about ready to toss it before I did!
