Can't live with, can't live without

There are some products that as much as I love them, also drive me crazy. Today I'm sharing two which I can't live with and can't live without.


YSL false lash effect mascara

This is my dream mascara, but only for about 4 weeks. It gives the perfect false lash look, doesn't clump and lasts all day. The downside? It dries out so fast! Every tube I've had does the same thing. Now, I like to wear a lot of mascara, but something just isn't right here. I don't mind paying £23 for a mascara that does everything I want it too, but having to buy a new one each month is not ok in my books.

Seche Vite quick dry topcoat

This does exactly what it says in the tin and offers a quick dry, glossy topcoat for nails. I use it virtually every time I paint mine and love the effect, but what I hate is how it goes gloopy in the bottle! It's like it's drying out whilst still inside, and after a few months becomes virtually unusable. Other people I've spoken with have the same issue - it's so annoying! If you have any other quick dry topcoat recommendations please let me know!

Are there any products you can't live with but can't live without?

  1. I use this mascara and I'm on the same tube I've had since December (I know I'm pushing the limits of hygiene..)! I must have got a good one :)

  4. I love Seche Vite but I hate all the garbage that's in it. Unfortunately, it's the best thing I have found out there.

  5. You need to get Seche Restore, when my Seche Vite starts to get all gloopy and gross I just pop a couple of drops in and it's good as new!
