Shine On.

This post (and others like it) has been a long time coming! But I promise, dear readers, that I will be more forthcoming with my beauty-related posts! On that note, let me tell you about my on-going quest to matte-ify my oil slick of a face. I happened upon Cargo blu-ray High Definition mattifier at my local Sephora. The product claims to "refine pores, minimize lines, control the look of oil and shine" (one guess as to which of those 3 claims caught my attention), and retailed at $24 for a 0.94 oz. tube.To alleviate my state of blotting my face every 3 hours on the dot, I thought I'd give this product a try. The gel is tan in color in the tube, but goes on colorless with a powdery texture. You don't have to worry about over applying as excess product will rub right off. I noticed right away that this mattifier works pretty well as a foundation or makeup primer. Other than that, I'm sorry to report that it didn't do a whole lot in terms of keeping my greasies at bay. I found myself blotting away a few hours after I applied the product. On the flipside, my slick sisters, we should rejoice as my dermie tells me we'll be less prone to wrinkles later in life. Yay! As for mattifiers, my search continues ....

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…

Coming to a Screen Near You: Freida Pinto.

So not only is this lass charming fashion houses the world over, Freida is racking up the film offers! We already know Freida's been tapped for Woody Allen's next project. Now, The Sun is breaking news that Freida has been asked to audition for the next Bond film which is reportedly likely to be directed by none other than Danny Boyle. I may be biased, but I think fab Freida would make one fierce Bond Girl! This is one rumor I hope comes to fruition. Daniel Craig + Freida Pinto = must-see Bond flick.

Archives: Kunal Nayyar Weds Neha Kapur

TV's lovably neurotic astrophysicist Rajesh Koothrapali (aka Kunal N) married former Miss India Neha Kapur in a lavish round of ceremonies in Delhi back in December. Thankfully the real life Kunal doesn't require booze to talk to women - otherwise these two would be headed for a very silent or very drunk married life. Cheers to the happy couple. Here are a couple of snaps from Neha's mehendi ceremony and from their Big Fat Indian wedding reception. I hear it was a small, family affair with only about 1,000 people in attendance. Check out a slideshow of their nuptials here.
