When would you guys recommend throwing away mascara? I know on the bottle it says 6 months, but how long do you guys actually keep it for?


It depends. I would keep mine for the recommended time but if it's not yet the time and it starts to feel weird and clumpy throwing it away is the best option.


I tend to go 4 months, I use a lot and by around 4 months ish I'm getting to the last of it, and it starts getting too clumpy anyway.

I only rarely actually buy a tube of mascara, but my general rule of thumb is I throw it out when I can tell it’s dried out or the texture changes. Since I never have an issue applying my mascara, as soon as it starts giving me grief I know it’s time to toss it. If that make sense!

Re: Mascara

6m-1y tops. I tend to abide by the 6m guideline because having a performance/drama background I've seen some nasty infections because of old mascara. That being said, I also wear mascara often (near daily!) so it never lasts a year lol! 

Good to know!! Thank you!!
