    Well, yes, old mascara can lead to pink eyes. And first, pink eye is an eye infection which will cause the white of the eye to turn red. And for the causes, infection can be the most common reason. So if you try old mascara, it will just increase the risk of getting pink eyes. And at that time, itching, watering eyes, swollen lids and a thick discharge will occur in some degree. So just avoid using them, or it can be dangerous.
