My Stuff: New Beauty-related purchases

Drugstores, beauty shops, make-up counters… I know I’m not the only one. It’s not an addiction. It’s a birth right. The prerogative of being a woman.

The Paul & Joe were from aLT in The Heeren Shops; the MAC stuff from the awesome TANGS Plaza store and the rest from SASA in Marina Square.

1. CETTUA My Bright Face Mate Brightening Patch

– I’ve tried these and I love them because they stick to your face so you can move around.

2. CLARUS Anti Wrinkle Bio Cellulose Eye Patches

– It apparently reduces fine lines & wrinkles, leaves skin around eyes moisturized and tightened. I use a lot of these pre-moistened masks & eye patch things because they are convenient.

3. MAC Select Sheer Pressed Powder NC 25

– I swear by this powder for touch-ups. Blends in great with my skin tone and while is sheer, gives great coverage (oxymoron, yes).

4. MAC Studio Tech Foundation NC 25

– I haven’t tried this yet but in the store, the cream to powder foundation literally just melted into my skin. LOVE!

5. PAUL & JOE Face Color (no. 12)

– I previously used no. 06 but this tawny shade was lovely when the aLT counter girl gave me a mini-makeover. Had to buy it.

6. PAUL & JOE Lipstick (no. 17)

– I seldom wear lipstick. Usually just a sheer tint or lipgloss. I want to say it’s an impulse buy but it’s so natural on me I ❤ it!

So what did you buy recently?


I produced an indie music festival in Singapore for 7years before I moved to the US to be with my indie game dev husband Tom who made Axiom Verge and Axiom Verge 2. We live in Los Angeles, California with our son Alastair (named for Alastair Reynolds) and our dog Goliath (named for his size).
