This Hurts PZ, This Hurts.

The Gitanjali Luxury Style fest launch was sprinkled with the usual suspects in their questionable fashion choices. Let's begin with this unidentified lady in what can only be described as a too-short gown in a too-clingy material. The wide belt used to cinch her waist is supposed to emphasize the narrowest point of her body as opposed to creating extra bulges. If she wanted to wear a bubble hem, she should have gone above the knee in length. Also, none of her accessories work together. Extra wide patent leather belt + blue peep toes + pearl strand necklace + gold clutch = total accessory mishmash.

As always, Rituparna Sengupta does not fail to disappoint with the fugliness of her attire. The focal point of this hideous get-up is the blouse. What is it? The Material Girl meets Edward Scissor-hands? Plus, the giant loopy necklace only serves to create more distraction.

Neil Nitin Mukesh arrived to launch the Luxury Style Fest in a t-shirt and light jeans. For the record, denim really isn't an evening piece, but if you must wear your fave pair of jeans, make sure it's a dark rinse. Which leads us to the usually oh-so-fabulous Preity Zinta. What happened PZ?!? When Rituparna shows up dressed like Esmerelda on crack, well, it's expected. But when one of the most fashionable Bollywood celebrities shows up in denims and an oddly-patchworked blouse, it really hurts. And that too, when it is a recycled blouse (one which our starlet wore while promoting Veer Zara), well the shock is that much worse. Siiiiigh. Here's hoping this is a one-off incident and that PZ redeems herself asap.

Meet Queen Jetsun Pema of Bhutan

The young, beautiful, and fashionable Queen of Bhutan, a country secluded from the world's limelight due to its remoteness, has already been generating a stir ever since her marriage to the King and her rise to the position of Queen Consort. She is a powerhouse in her own right, and much loved by the Bhutanese people. However, on a fun and superficial level, she has also drawn favorable comparisons to the Duchess of Cambridge, so much so, that she is sometimes referred to as the "Kate Middleton of the Himalayas".
So who is this Himalayan Queen? At 25-years-old, she is the youngest Queen Consort in the world. Like Kate, she was a commoner (though with an aristocratic lineage) and the daughter of a pilot. She is fashionable, athletic, and holds a university arts background. Additionally, she herself is a brand new mum, having recently given birth to a baby boy.
As with Wills and Kate, the King and Queen of Bhutan have always shown great respect for their country's cult…

Looking for a DiorShow Extase dupe

Getting 3 kiddos fed, dressed, and out the door on time on school mornings, is challenging on a good day. Between prepping breakfasts, packing lunches, double checking bags for homework, and generally refereeing Big A and S while simultaneously holding or nursing Little A, means I have precious little time to make myself presentable. As a result, mascara has taken the front and center stage of my makeup routine for rushed mornings because who has time to carefully paint on eyeliner?!
1. DiorShow Extase (discontinued) 2. IT Cosmetics Superhero Elastic Stretch Volumizing Mascara
I was crushed when Dior discontinued their Extase mascara. I adored it. The brush had the perfect shape, and unlike DiorShow or Blackout, this formulation was amenable to multiple, clump-free coats. Unfortunately, none of the current offerings in the Dior mascara lineup feature a similar brush to Extase. IT Cosmetics offered a comparable brush and sounded like it might be a good dupe. On the positive side, the m…

Two Faced Mascara Melt-Off

**UPDATED** We all love mascara that doesn't budge, but who enjoys nightly battles with mascara removal? Not I. Which is why I was excited to give this product a whirl. It promises quick, easy, and effective mascara removal. I simply applied a coat to my lashes using the kind of wand you would expect for lower lash mascaras. I let the product remain on my lashes as I washed my face (approx. two minutes). I used a cotton pad soaked in my favorite eye-makeup remover to gently sweep off the mascara.
The Mascara Melt-Off definitely speeds up the mascara removal process, with significantly less tugging and rubbing of lashes. I felt that the results were a more thorough mascara removal than makeup remover alone.

That said, the directions stated to use a cotton pad to wipe off the mascara; but I found that you most definitely need to soak the pad in your usual remover. Also, I should note that I tested it on non-waterproof mascara. I have no idea how effective it would be in the case of …
