Money Saver/Makeup Tip: Recycling Mascara Wands

Woman eye
Covergirl, Revlon, Maybelline, L’Oreal, Milani, Physicians Formula, the list goes on and on.

Walking into a drugstore looking for affordable mascara can be a bit overwhelming. Fear not, Orglamic beauty is here to help you pave the way through all of the mascara madness.

Finding the right mascara can feel like such a tedious process. So much trial and error goes into the search for that perfect formula. You may find the right wand but hate the mascara, and vice versa. But have you ever stopped to think that maybe when you find that perfect mascara wand that does exactly what you want it to do, you should hold onto it?


That’s right ladies, the perfect mascara isn’t so much finding the right formula, as it is finding the right wand. There are so many different types of wands out there that do different things, everything from thickening to lengthening. You name it, they’ve got it. So this is why it’s crucial to hold onto that old mascara wand you love oh so dearly, because it could save you a lot of trouble when you want to venture off into another mascara’s madness.

Once you’ve found your wand of choice, just clean that puppy off and you’re good to go! You’re gonna wanna disinfect and sanitize the wand itself so when cleaning be sure to use alcohol and let them down to dry over a towel. Once you’ve gotten a new mascara to use, you can recycle that old wand that you hold a special place in your heart for and try it out with a new formula. It’s guaranteed to give your lashes better results.

So try this out next time you’re driving yourself nuts trying to find a good mascara and let us know how it worked for you!

Until next time lovelies!



  1. Nice post. I learn something new and challenging on
    websites I stumbleupon everyday. It will always be helpful to read articles from other writers
    and practice something from their sites.

  2. what’s the third wand from the left? that looks really cool!

    • That wand is from the Clinique High Definition Lashes mascara!
