Single’s Inferno’s Nadine Lee might not have captured the most hearts of the male candidates on the Korean reality dating series, but she sure has emerged as the popular “It” girl for fans who’ve binged the entire second season.
A single with beauty, brains, and a whole lot of charisma, Nadine is a pre-med student, specialising in neuroscience, who’s studying at Harvard. If your stereotype of “smart” is someone with little regard for their looks, Nadine’s proving rightfully that stereotypes never hold much ground.
The Single’s Inferno candidate has served countless fashion looks on and off the season (case in point: the green siren dress that she wore in episode two). To go with her sharp sense of fashion, of course, is her ethereal Korean-style makeup; we’re talking highlighted aegyo sal, sweet pink lips, and a natural skin glow.
The best part? Nadine’s just dropped her holy grail makeup, skincare, and hair products on @nimo_fam, her mum’s YouTube channel. It’s the scoop that we’ve been waiting for ever since the start of the season, and we’re rounding up all the products she’s shared, so you can cart them out, ASAP.

NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer
The first item that Nadine gets “over and over again” is the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer. She’s not the only one, because this cult-favourite concealer is one of the bestselling ones in the US, thanks to its effortlessly brightening effect and buttery texture.
The concealer does what it should do and more: it quickly conceals, blur imperfections, and leaves the skin looking filter-worthy.
NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer retails for S$47 on Sephora.
Laneige Neo Matte Foundation
Next up is the Laneige Neo Matte Foundation, which Nadine said she just added to her routine. “I really like it and I use it with this brush,” she exclaimed, as she held up the Laneige Neo Foundation Brush to the camera.
The Neo Matte Foundation is the alternative to the brand’s iconic Neo Cushion foundation, especially if you prefer a pump-out liquid foundation to a cushion compact. Known for its ultra-lightweight finish, your skin will look luminous and yet feel just like skin throughout the day.
Plus, now we know – it’s how Nadine flaunts her flawless skin glow.
Laneige Neo Matte Foundation retails for S$67 on Sephora and at a 10% discount on Shopee.
You can also find the Laneige Neo Foundation Brush priced at S$24.29 on Shopee, or as part of an exclusive set on Laneige’s official Shopee store.
Oribe Gold Lust Nourishing Hair Oil
If there’s a hair product that’ll get us one step closer to having hair that looks like Nadine’s we’re getting it. Well, Nadine has dropped one that she uses and it’s none other than the Oribe Gold Lush Nourishing Hair Oil.
Infused with a rich blend of argan, jasmine, and edelweiss flower extracts, to name a few, this hair oil strengthens and smoothens the strands from within. It’s no wonder that the Single’s Inferno star has a jet-black mane that just about reflects when the light hits.
Oribe Gold Lust Nourishing Hair Oil retails for S$67.91 on Amazon.
Etude Dr.Mascara Fixer For Perfect Lash
Nadine emphasised, “You need this guys.” And, you really do.
A holy grail product for so many with stubborn, stick-straight lashes, the Etude Dr.Mascara Fixer For Perfect Lash doesn’t just darken the eyelashes, it also holds them up so that your curls point towards the ceiling all day long.
“This stuff literally curls your lashes and holds the curl the whole time,” she said, stressing every single word. “It’s absolutely insane.”
Etude Dr.Mascara Fixer For Perfect Lash retails for S$6.04 on Shopee.
Too Cool for School Artclass By Rodin Shading
If you’re on the lookout for a contour compact that houses not one but three shades, you’re in luck. Nadine revealed that she uses the Too Cool for School Artclass By Rodin Shading – a compact that houses three fine-powdered shades – as her go-to for sculpting.
You can use each shade separately to contour and bring out distinct features or blend all three together for a softly sculpted look. The powders give the skin a soft matte finish, just the way we like it.
Too Cool for School Artclass By Rodin Shading retails for S$12.85 on Shopee. You can also get it with the brand’s brush for S$17.17 on Shopee.
CLIO Pro Eye Palette in 015 Spring Sunshine On Canvas
“I mix between palettes,” Nadine quipped as she held the CLIO Pro Eye Palette in 015 Spring Sunshine On Canvas up to the camera. The Korean brand’s eyeshadow palette holds a mix of pinkish, peachy, and brown shades, which are ideal for an everyday look.
We’ve also spotted Nadine wearing pink eyeshadow on her Instagram, and it always adds to a rosy, youthful radiance – count us in.
CLIO Pro Eye Palette in 015 Spring Sunshine On Canvas retails for S$38.77 on Shopee. You can also find it at a discount, at S$34.93, on Watsons.
Tarte Tartelette Toasted eyeshadow palette
Nadine’s second palette of choice is the Tarte Tartelette Toasted. This eyeshadow palette houses 12 highly-pigmented shades, including a rosy range of pink and peach hues as well as a toasty selection of light to deep browns.
You’ll also find both matte and shimmer powders in this palette. It’s the perfect palette for when you’re “nerding” it out at school or partying with your BFFs as the night falls.
Tarte Tartelette Toasted retails for S$68 on Sephora.
Perrigo Tretinoin Cream USP 0.025%
For skin, Nadine gave a shoutout to the Perrigo Tretinoin Cream USP 0.025%. “Skincare? I use tretinoin. I’m on that tretinoin grind right now,” she said with a smile.
Tretinoin is a more potent retinoid compared to the hero ingredient retinol and it can be used to fight acne, reduce fine wrinkles, and fade discolouration.
To jump on the retinoid skincare train like Nadine, you can check out retinol bestsellers like Paula’s Choice 1% Retinol Treatment (S$87.40) and La Roche Posay Retinol B3 Serum!
La Roche Posay Retinol B3 Serum retails at a 20% discount, at S$64.52 instead of S$80.65, on Watsons.
