Money Monday – Mascara

Hi! Been a little while and even though I’m a little more focused on the other site, I still want to keep Frugal in Florida and keep it more focused on money, saving and being intentionally frugal.

Hence …

Money Monday!

My little frugal tip for the week?? Extend your mascara!

eye drops and mascara

I buy somewhat pricier mascara … why? I’m not sure, other than the fact that I like it when it does NOT flake off, smear, smudge and just goes on smooth.

Snobby? Sort of … and I make no apologies for it!

But lately, I’ve been trying to use up what I have on hand (that shampoo thing was soooo much fun, NOT) and now I’m getting down to the bottom of the mascara stash …

And you know what that means?

Clumpy, dry and awful to put on.


I found a tip and figured, heck, let me give it a try!

Saline eye drops (like you use for contacts)!

I don’t wear contacts but I do have eye drops aka visine!  So I used that instead!

2 drops in to that tube of dried up mascara works like a charm!

I’m 3 weeks in with that rejuvenated tube and so happy that I am putting off spending $28 for a few more weeks!


I even went and did this to a sampler tube I received that I really enjoyed and have been using that as well and can I just tell you what a GREAT HACK this is!

Go ahead, give it a try and thank me later!

  1. Well, that's something I would never have thought of myself! Thank you!


  2. I know, it's such a simple quick fix!


  3. Man! I wish I had read this before now. At the beginning of the week, I added some water to my mascara and thought I was genius! It revived my mascara but I like you eye drop idea since Its made for eye. I have an old sampler (of some high dollar stuff) I'm gonna try your trick. Thanks for the idea.Lisa


  4. Totally use it on that sampler! I had a tiny bottle of some stuff from Clarion that I added a drop to it and have been using it for TWO WEEKS now! Trust me, this is the best thing to do!


  5. Thanks for the tip! I am getting to the bottom of my own tube. I am going to try it.


  6. Let me know how awesome of a tip this is when you do! I'm still amazed 🙂
