    While this hack sounds good; it is NOT.
    Mascara should :
    1 – Not be “revived” if it drys out – this can cause bacteria in the mascara to increase
    (Bacteria LOVE mascara; excellent medium for growth); causing mild to severe eye infections; including MRSA.
    2 – Mascara SHOULD NOT be kept for more than 3 months – again, Bacteria growth.
    3 – NEVER, EVER be shared.
    4 – If you get an eye infection THROW OUT YOUR MASCARA! What ever caused the eye infection (ie – pink eye) will be on the mascara brush; and, in your mascara.
