Oh, how we wish we could take our beauty and skincare collections with us wherever we went, right? Sadly, that’s rarely the case, especially when going to work. And the hardest part about not having all our products with us is that when a beauty emergency strikes, we have to be prepared to solve them – from smudgy eyeliner, to an oily T-zone, to red and swollen eyes.

So if you want to ensure that you always look neat and polished at work, keep reading below for the 6 products you must always have at your desk to ensure that you can fabulously and easily take care of any beauty crisis, whether it’s large or small!


Cotton Buds

Cotton buds, or Q tips, may be small, but they’re extremely useful. These thin pieces of cotton can fix up any beauty emergency you experience – from smudgy mascara, down to cakey concealer, and messy lip colours!

Eye drops

When you’re constantly heading to meetings and being introduced to new people, swollen red eyes are the last thing you want to have. With that in mind, make sure you always have eye drops in your desk to give your peepers a refreshed look wherever you go!

While air conditioning can give you relief from the heat outside, being exposed to it for hours can lead to dry skin. The solution? A nourishing and hydrating face mist! It will refresh and cool your skin, while giving your makeup look that dewy glow.

Blotting sheets or sponge

There’s a thin line between dewy and greasy. To prevent your complexion from becoming the latter, keep a pack of blotting sheets or a blotting sponge at your desk to instantly give yourself a mattified look!

Dry shampoo

Dry shampoo is most likely the best invention since sliced bread, and is a definite must-have for working bees like us as it gives our tresses a refreshed and voluminous look. So whenever you feel like your hair is a bit greasy in the middle of the day, just spritz this on, and wave goodbye to dull, oily hair!

Brows frame our face. Unfortunately, stray brow hairs can often look messy, so if you want to always look polished at work, keep a pair of tweezers at your desk to give your brows a quick fix!

Disney has been a significant part of our childhood and it's just so exciting that even as grown ups, we still get to celebrate our love for the whimsical world of magic and fairytales through themed beauty products. That's why we can't help but gush over OPI's second collaboration with Disney!

Beginning the 2010 collaboration for Alice in Wonderland, OPI x Disney comes back bigger and bolder with the release of the franchise's 2nd instalment--Alice Through The Looking Glass. The story takes Alice back to the whimsical world of Wonderland, where she time travels to save the Mad Hatter. 

The new Brights collection is inspired by the film’s mad, crazy, wonderful characters and their latest adventures. This features eight insanely gorgeous limited-edition shades each available in both lacquer and GelColor formulas. Plus, they also added a bonus special edition nail lacquer shade to the bunch. Each nail lacquer retails for SGD$ 16 and also comes in an Alice or Mad Hatter duo pack that retails for SGD$ 26. 

Everyone is sure to find their cup of tea in these bright, bold colors fit for storybook and real-life heroines alike. There’s strength in mesmerizing blues, nobility in gleaming alabaster and glittering gold, and more than a little madness in saturated hues of lilac, burgundy, red and fuchsia.

What are you waiting for? Indulge and go mad with colour with the OPI x Disney's Alice Through The Looking Glass Nail Collection!

Ever had one of those days when you feel so drained of energy? We've all had moments when we get so worn out to the point that it makes us want to take a breather and just relax. And believe it or not, the same goes with our skin.

Getting exposed to dirt, pollution, and other external factors can significantly affect the radiance and glow of our skin. Thankfully, Philosophy's new addition to their skincare range is here to change all that.

Aptly named, Take A Deep Breath is a lightweight oil-free gel cream that delivers oxygen to the skin to keep it hydrated, energized, radiant, and protected from pollution. This allows the skin to breathe freely and recover from the signs of daily life that may cause ageing.

Formulated with Philosophy's exclusive clean-air technology™, which includes photosynthesized barley leaf extracts with a patented antioxidant complex, it neutralizes free radicals of any sort including those caused by pollution, smog, and other daily aggressors.

It also provides an on-demand reservoir of oxygen, which helps skin “breathe” freely, keeping it fresh, energised, and radiant. It also protects our skin from environmental aggressors by using an air-filtering technology which helps neutralize the damage caused by free radicals. The line comes in both face and eye gel that leave the skin looking soft and radiant even at initial application.

So what are you waiting for? Bring the life back into your skin with Take A Deep Breath. 


Philosophy's Take A Deep Breath oxygenating gel and eye gel is available in all Sephora stores in Singapore for SGD$ 52 and SGD$ 50 respectively.
