My Reading Room

“This volumising mascara is by far the best I’ve used. It doesn’t clump, and leaves my eyelashes looking so much longer and more voluminous! It lasts the whole day too.”

Chang Yi Ling, 27 

Benefit BADgal Bang! Mascara, $42 

My Reading Room

“I love this pencil’s fine tip that has made it easier to fill in my brows for a natural look. The product lasts throughout the day without the need to touch up. Overall, it’s a great product with a good shade range.

Jasmine Thian, 27 

NYX Professional Makeup Micro Brow Pencil, $16 

My Reading Room

"I’m not a fan of liquid foundations because the ones I’ve tried look thick and heavy. But this is quite lightweight, offers medium coverage without looking cakey and stays fresh all day." 

Leong Li Yuan, Senior Designer

Max Factor Healthy Skin Harmony Miracle Foundation in Light Ivory, $27.90 

My Reading Room

“My hair is quite dry, thanks to multiple bleaching and colouring sessions (I’ve also been slacking on after-care), so I don't expect any product to make a huge difference overnight. That said, I used this deep conditioner twice over four days and noticed my hair was shinier and more manageable.”

Sophie Hong, Senior Features Writer 

Vernon Francois Whipped Deep Conditioner, $51 

My Reading Room

“I truly struggled to pick a shade to try – they’re all gorgeous and the names (like Control and Vibe) definitely make you want them all. Eventually, I settled on Clique, which dries to a perfect reddish-pink matte.”

Claire Starkey, Editor-in-Chief 

Laura Mercier Velour Extreme Matte Lipstick in Clique, $40 

My Reading Room

“I have struggled to find the right concealer for my oily skin, but this one changed my makeup game forever – it covers blemishes with a matte finish.” 

Natalie Ng, 22 

Colourpop No Filter Concealer in Medium 24, $8

My Reading Room

“Made in Kumano, the brush capital of Japan, this is probably one of the softest brushes I've tried – and I've tried a lot. It deposits just the right amount of pigment for a soft, subtle finish, which means you're unlikely to make the mistake of applying too much colour at first stroke. It's perfect for newbies and experts alike." 

Hidayah Idris, Senior Digital Writer 

ASTALIFT Flarosso Kumanofude Blush Brush, $51

My Reading Room

“Being allergic to most foundations means I usually wear minimal makeup. It also means I take my skincare routine very seriously. This serum hydrates and nourishes my skin and has been my Holy Grail product for years." 

Lim Wen Jing, 23 

Innisfree Green Tea Seed Serum, $36 

My Reading Room

“I believe that your scalp deserves as much of a deep cleanse as your face. With Singapore’s hot and humid climate, using this hair scrub once a week helps reduce greasiness and keeps my scalp clear without drying it out.” 

Smita DeSouza, Beauty Editor 

Christophe Robin Cleansing Purifying Scrub with Sea Salt, $79 

My Reading Room

“I found my perfect red lippie. The texture is super creamy and moisturising, even though it’s matte. The shade makes my teeth look whiter and brings life to my face. It’s definitely my go-to for every occasion." 

Rachel Tang, 23 

M.A.C Cosmetics Matte Lipstick in Russian Red, $33
