I am not a huge fan of makeup and don't wear it that often, but I still need to buy it regularly. That's because makeup has a very short shelf life.
According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, "The shelf life for eye-area cosmetics is more limited than for other products. Because of repeated microbial exposure during use by the consumer and the risk of eye infections, some industry experts recommend replacing mascara 3 months after purchase."
So go check your mascara. If it's more than three months old, you should think about replacing it. Saving a little money by using cosmetics for many months or years isn't worth it if you get an eye infection!
But you probably still want to save when buying mascara. So use this great coupon for $1.00 off any ONE (1) MAYBELLINE Mascara. Combine this with a sale at the drug stores (Walgreens, CVS, or Rite Aid) to get a great deal!
