One day late last year, I was with the lovely ladies from Netﬂix, and asked what show I should be watching next.
“RuPaul’s Drag Race,” they suggested.
While any show that uses the term “sashay away” is right up my alley, I told them I wasn’t sure I could get it around my boyfriend.
“Black Mirror,” they said, nodding their heads vigorously. “It’s amazing... Weird, but amazing.”
So that night, we sat down to watch what can only be described as one of the most disturbing and yet oddly fascinating TV shows I have ever seen.
I’ve had some seriously deep conversations because of it, and it made me question what being glued to my phone is doing to me. Whether or not you’ve seen the series (and I deﬁnitely recommend it), our story “I’ll Just Google It” on p78 will deﬁnitely make you think. And make sure Facebook doesn’t have access to your phone’s microphone…
Speaking of things that have blown my mind – OUR COVER! Or should I say OUR COVERS! Ever since I ﬁrst laid eyes on this treatment overseas, I’ve been dying to do a Singapore spin. Starring up-and-comer Jasmine Sim and some gorgeous new lip colours from LANEIGE, the results are just as dreamy as I hoped. I hope that by the time you read this, you’ve had way too much fun ﬂipping and matching your favourite look, and hopefully ﬁnding some new beauty inspiration. If not, I highly recommend you start ﬂipping back that way, stat!

5. Pigment Drops
You literally blend one to three drops of this highly pigmented product into your moisturiser for a customisable base. How has this not been invented earlier?!
