Beauty-Pati.com // Top 8 Cleansing Oils

Gone are the days when we have to use cold cream to vigorously rub off our makeup. I remember pulling at my skin using many cotton pads during my teenage years, and before discovering the wonder of cleansing oils. Since then, I’ve not looked back. Why? Because they are fast, simple and effective in removing all traces of makeup, including stubborn eyeliner and coats of mascara. Even though I have sensitive skin, veering from oily to combination depending on the weather and environment, I swear by cleansing oils to cleanly remove makeup without fuss and without breakouts. Like many, I thought that I should never use oil on oily skin. It would make it worse and even oilier, right? Wrong! It’s worse to go to bed with your skin still hinting of makeup in corners, clogged up, and unable to breathe. The technology has advanced so much that many cleansing oils are light and emulsify well to be totally removed by a single wash with no trace of oil remaining on our skin. With that …

Beauty-Pati.com // Starstruck with Orange Lipsticks

Orange lipsticks have taken the world by storm. It is the new red for the lips! Be it the New York Fashion Week 2014 where Rag and Bone sent models strutting down in bright orange lips, or Hollywood stars donning matte oranges on their pouts, we suddenly see them everywhere. Asia is not spared from this onslaught of boldness either. Many could not fathom how they could ever wear this electrifying shade until they saw Jun Ji Hyun swiped one across her pouty lips on “My Love from the Star” (or “You Who Came From The Star”). Of course, our eyes are on the male lead Kim Soo Hyun too.   We found out from the good people at Laneige, that the actual lipstick, Laneige Serum Intense Lipstick YR25 Neon Orange (S$34), has been sold out worldwide for months. This is proof of the mammoth attraction of the shades (and the K-drama) that has created waves in the lipstick scene. You can leave your name with the Beauty Advisors at Laneige boutiques and counters, and …

Beauty-Pati.com // Jill Stuart Beauty Review and Giveaway

I was first introduced to Jill Stuart by a friend when I spotted her, fishing out of her makeup pouch, a neat blush compact. What’s neat? A retractable brush is attached to the blush compact. Immediately, she was extolling the cuteness and usefulness of this Jill Stuart blush compact. Yes, cute can be useful too. Add this to the princessy packaging and sweet hues, and you have a winner! I was curious instantly and made a promise to seek out Jill Stuart Beauty counters in my next trips to Hong Kong, Taiwan and Japan. Another yes. It’s not sold in the beauty halls of Singapore, though you can find it online at BestBuy-World. Without giving away too much (please read the Jill Stuart Beauty review here), I’m also a fan of their perfume and bodycare. ‘Jill’ is an endearing sweet floral fragrance. It makes you feel prettier with just a spritz of its scent. A most recent discovery is Jill Stuart Body Milk, which I purchased in my last trip to Taipei. It moisturizes my …

Beauty-Pati.com // Chic Red Lipsticks for Asian Skin

I’m feeling excited and honored that I have been invited to contribute to this new website, Beauty-Pati.com. As the name suggests, this website aims to excite its readers with the latest makeup trends and the hottest beauty reviews. It will be dispensing sound beauty tips, presenting the dos and don’ts for body care, and inspiring your next nail art. This is my first article – Chic Red Lipsticks for Asian Skin. We all know how siren red lipsticks are always going to be in. It’s even more so this year. But it’s always challenging for Asian skin to find a suitable red lipstick that is not going to make us look like we stepped out of a Teochew wayang, or way beyond our age. We want the chicness and grace that Parisian ladies exude when they don their red lippies, so I decided to investigate! You can also follow Beauty-Pati on their Facebook Page or Instagram.
