“Some men spend their Sunday nights winding their mechanical watches; my ritual is to sharpen my collection of Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils for my everyday wing liner. Glides on like butter, amazing colour payoff, and stays put like a well-trained dog."

 

Natalia Ng, #LOFFSQUAD

“I swear by La Mer’s The Concentrate. This potent miracle essence keeps my skin feeling silky smooth. The glow and radiance my skin exudes is without question the work of this baby. This serum lets me enjoy my day out and about with minimal makeup but maximum confidence!”

Evon Chng, Deputy Fashion Director

“I have the hots for the latest Urban Decay Naked Heat palette. Prior to their launch, I have been blending in orangey-red eyeshadow with brown-toned ones to achieve the ideal shade that compliments my skin tone. My favourite shade in the palette has got to be “He Devil”, a shade that reminds me of the warmest sunset in Los Angeles.”

Paige Parker, #LOFFSQUAD

DrGL Skin Repair and Eye Repair are my fave duo. They’re quite small at 10ml each – so easy for travel too. I always stock up on SQ flights to enjoy my Solitaire discount, since they’re costly. Claiming plant stem cell extracts, Skin Repair helps with a youthful glow, leaving skin smooth and supple. Eye Repair helps with dark circles, puffiness and fine lines.” 

Calista Cuaca, #LOFFSQUAD

“This Kiko Face Makeup Fixer is a setting spray that distributes product so evenly, it results in a flawless finish!”

“I've been searching for the perfect red lippie nearly all my life, so when I found Urban Decay Vice Liquid Lipstick in Rock Steady, it was my hallelujah moment. The cool red tone is ridiculously – and surprisingly – flattering on my skin tone and the lipstick actually lives up to its ‘life proof’ claim. The fact that Rock Steady is inspired by the OG ska queen Gwen Stefani is just an added bonus."

Tan Min-Li, #LOFFSQUAD

“My cult product is definitely Cle De Peau Le Serum, which I swear by. The texture of my complexion changed within a month of using it, becoming finer, smoother and more radiant so much so that friends started commenting that my skin was glowing! I always carry a small sample size to take on the plane during long flights.” 

Annabel Tan, Features Writer

“I love experimenting with eyeshadow, but who has time to blend out five colours every morning? Colourpop Super Shock Shadow in La La is a glittery rose gold that looks good on its own and instantly makes it look like I put in more effort than I actually did. The formula is so soft and pigmented that it makes application fool proof. I just use my finger to sweep it all over my lids and I'm good to go!”

Mae Tan, #LOFFSQUAD

“The Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer is a serious cheat code for a flawless base! Try it for yourself!” 

Jariel Ann Tan, Writer

“I was close to finishing my bronzer when a friend gave me NARS Laguna Bronzing Powder as a gift. Now, I’m a total convert to the NARS cult. The shade of brown doesn’t appear too harsh on fair skin yet it’s as pigmented as a bronzer can get. A little goes a long way with this gem. The brush also makes for easy sculpting since its flat and the bristles are just so soft.”
