Did you know you’re meant to chuck out your mascara three months after opening it? Before you all rush off to go through your mascara stash, let me tell you why.
Eye infections are all too common as a result of using too-old mascara – the constant putting in / pulling out of the mascara wand into the tube can introduce a multitude of germs and nasties into the mascara, and as it’s going so close to the eye, it’s just not worth the risk.
Today, I threw these three out and I’ve loved using them all, each for different reasons, so before they hit the bin, I thought I’d quickly tell you why.
Best for Lower Lash Definition – I’m lucky to have quite long, black lashes, so I don’t normally tend to add mascara to my lower lashes for fear of looking a little cartoonish. But the formula of the Cargo HD Picture Perfect HD Mascara made it perfect for subtle definition (it wasn’t enough coverage for my upper lashes, but I’m one of those who believes more is always more when it comes to lashes and mascara!)
Best for Fluffy Lashes – I’d never tried a T. Le Clerc mascara before this one but it wasn’t a brand I’d normally associate with luscious lashes. How wrong could I be? This is the T Le Clerc Effet Bloom Volume Recourbant Mascara (curling and volumising) and I’ve used this mascara down to the very last drop, and was in total denial that there was no more. The large and slightly curved brush gives long, curled, fluffy lashes – like wearing false lashes without the faff. One I’ll definitely be repurchasing and definitely worth your hard earned pennies too.
Best for Dramatic Lashes – this one comes as no surprise, I’ve waxed lyrical about this one before on Instagram and Snapchat and just about anywhere else I could. Bare Minerals Lash Domination Mascara is jet black, very volumising, lengthening and stays put all day and all night. This is actually my second tube of Lash Domination – yes, that’s how much I love it!
Let me know if you like this kind of little “empties” post and I’ll make sure to do them more often.
