Re: Mascara. I read an article that said this is one thing to buy from the drugstore because you really should replace it every 3 months for hygiene. I've been guilty of not doing that as I don't use it much. With mascara each person's favourite is so individual because there is natural looking, lengthening, volumizing, waterproof. Etc, etc. The variety can be confusing. Obviously if money is no problem for you, then high end is usually better, but I've tried many drugstore mascaras and find them to work fine-- I always use a little comb or spoolie brush to separate my eyelashes and make sure no clumps. Even super-cheap brands like Wet 'n Wild, ELF and Essence have some good mascaras - lots of reviews online.
