What can you do about Dry mascara? Like if it's only a month old is there anything you can do to fix it or do you have to throw it out? I really don't want to throw it out yet. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

You could try putting the bottom end of the tube in warm water for 5 minutes. Do you pump the wand in the mascara? That'll dry it out really fast.

I've heard you can put a drop of saline solution in it but maybe that's a bad idea...

If it's waterproof mascara, adding water or saline will not allow the two substances to mix. The mascara will repell the added liquid.

I put two or three drops of water in it and that usually does the trick, come to think of it I did that today.

Honestly, if it was me and it was just a DS brand, I'd go get a new one if running the bottom under warm water doesn't work.

Ok Thanks. It's actually a Lancome so I'd like to keep it a while longer. I'll have to try the warm water. Will I have to do that every time I use it or does that help for a while? I don't Pump the wand in it. I guess maybe it's just old mascara or something...I'm not sure this is my first time Buying Hypnose. I normally get Definicils.

If it is from Lancome and you have the receipt, I would totally take it back!

I agree with magosienne, you can try running it under water, but don't add water to it.

I would think they'd take it back. I once had a Chanel ( I know, different companies ) compact pressed powder and I paid $50 for it and it broke and I took it back two different times with no receipt, so I don't think you would have a problem!
