Stunningly ... Awful.

Gul is always reliable for a fashion flub or ten. She arrived at the launch of Anita Dongre's LivaViscose Collection at Phoenix Mills in Lower Parel rocking a pair of aviators. The shades were the only positive in her entire look. She's gone the way of SRK by pairing a scarf over her too short, midriff-baring tank, which, by the way, tells us she's "sexy" since her appearance itself says nothing of the sort. You know how I feel about acid wash jeans and to what decade they actually belong. The ultra low rise creates the unflattering illusion of short legs and a disproportionately long torso. Don't even get me started on her silver sneaks.The Match Patrol had a busy afternoon at this event. Sambhavana Seth wore what is actually probably a beach cover up as a top over denims. I'm not a fan of the halter here as it's too cas in the baby pink color, but I'm absolutely perplexed by the asymetrical hemline. For a top, the hem is like a foot too long. She paired her outfit with an all-too-matchtastic pink Guess croc bag with white and hot pink piping. I do like that she wore her hair naturally curly to the event - it's a welcome change amid the sea of blow outs. But the light pink eye shadow? Really? Overall, this look is too Pepto Bismol for me.While I actually like Isha's bright, summery AND by Anita Dongre dress, she's gone ahead and ruined it with a case of Extreme Matching with accessories that don't gel with the cas vibe of the dress. You've already noted Isha's odd white-rimmed shades above. Add to that her white watch, white bag and those cringeworthy white sandals and what do you have? A reverse sunny side up egg. Mad citations for this one! I can't really say which is a bigger crime, Extreme Matching or overall schlubbiness a la Gul. Any thoughts?By comparison to these girls, Neetu fared markedly better. Of course, she is seen here posing next to Gul, so take it for what it's worth. I like the color and ruching detail of her dress which is also an Anita Dongre creation. Plus, the length is very ladylike which is a nice bonus. She went minimalist with her hair, makeup and thankgod, her accessories. While I'm not a fan of her white strappy sandals, at least she made a bold choice of a color that "goes with" her outfit rather than matching her outfit. Any neutral shade like white, black or tan would look excellent here.

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 …
