Posts Tagged Mascara
I’ve been tagged! Thanks for my best friend Jennifer (The Wired Enthusiast) I’ve been tagged (tasked?) to do this Rainbow Tag. Have I said tag/tagged enough? As Jenn mentioned in her post this has been especially popular on YouTube but they are also gaining popularity in the blogging world. For those of you who are unfamiliar with this tag, you go through your favorite products and find something for each color of the rainbow, plus something multicolored. So, let’s get to it:
I must have been distracted yesterday while applying my make up because when I opened my make up bag this morning I found the top of my mascara was just barely screwed on. I didn’t have to pull the wand up very far to know that it had dried out. It probably doesn’t help that I pump my mascara wand frequently, and this particular tube is approaching the three month mark. However, just as I was about to throw it out, I decided to make an attempt to save it:
I secured the cap tightly on the tube of mascara, then, remembering my last attempt at screwing on the cap, I double checked it. Then, I held the bottom of the tube under running hot water for a little over two minutes. It worked like a charm!
Remember: “They” advise that you don’t keep your mascara for more than three months due to bacteria growth.
Confession: I have a six month old tube of mascara that I still use!
