What Happened To Our Dhak-Dhak Girl?

If you caught Aaja Nachle, you will agree that Madhuri Dixit has only gotten better with age. A marriage and two kids later, La Dixit is still the Queen Bee of Bollywood which is why her appearance at the Slumdog Millionaire premiere in Mumbai was all the more disappointing. First off, it looks like little to no effort was put into her hair as it looks more like a result of scrunch-and-air-dry than anything else. Her makeup is ultra-matte which makes it harsh and screams "middle-aged mom" rather than diva. I wish she had gone with dewy skin with a slight shimmer and glossy lips. Note: for maturing skin, skip full-coverage, matte foundation in favor of a lighter foundation combined with an illuminator. Matte products will only serve to emphasize fine lines and will add ten years to your appearance, whereas a slight shimmer will create a glowy effect that will diminish the effects of age. Think of it as photoshop in a bottle.

As far as her choice for eveningwear, her boring salwaar suit paired with chappals was a real snore. Seriously what happened to Aaja Nachle Madhuri who rocked out that black-teal lehnga? C'mon, you guys know what I'm talking about! Judging by the border on the sleeves and hemline, the salwaar appears to be a Manish Malhotra creation. If so, then it's the dowdy cousin of the anarkalis worn by the Kapoor sisters on Nach Baliye. Anyway, here's hoping this is a one-off for Mads and that she comes back as fierce as ever at her next public appearance!Photo Source.

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 …
