Deepthi asks:

Can we really thin down mascara? I recently bought a new Revlon lash fantasy mascara, but I find it very clumpy and real thick., whilst the tester I tried in the store was much easier.  Both lash primer & mascara are clumpy.

Volumising mascaras are always thick and I guess you have to put up with clumpiness for the same reason! Try Clinique High Impact mascara if you want a light texture. I have it and it doesnt make the lashes hard and works quite well.
Alternatively you can use your liquid eyeliner on your mascara brush..works great…the trick is to apply before it dries out.

Deepthi, try warming up the closed mascara tube before using it , as in dip it in warm water for a few seconds(but dont immerse it in water compeltely) i think this will work

Me too. A clean wand can do what the best mascara liquids can’t.

My first guess would be to mix duraline by inglot to thin it down. But, mascara’s get clumpy by exposure/age – so if your mascara is from an old stock, show it to the SA & complain abt the same.
