Curiouser and Curiouser.

We all know that Sallu Uncle is a bit obsessed with his physique. Has been for years! He clearly aspires to one day be a geriatric body builder. Anywho, the man so vain that we can play a drinking game with shots had for every time he needlessly removes his skin tight, mesh baby doll tee in his movies, and get good and drunk from doing so, surprised me at his recent press meet for his film Ready. Well given that he's as proud as a peacock about his looks, I was rather shocked by his haggard appearance. Sallu Uncle, you cannot "treat your body like a temple" but then forget all about your face! I don't care how toned and tight the bod is, the second we start seeing dark under-eye circles and puffiness, well, it's a dead giveaway! Now I don't normally advocate for men wearing makeup, but I do have a suggestion for our dear Sallu who so desperately thinks he's still 20. Use under-eye concealer, baba! No seriously. I am not joking. Get your butt to your nearest Bobbi Brown retailer asap. I know the pain that is waking up in the morning to be greeted by unsightly, dark circles. Do what you will with makeup and fitness, these babies will undo all those painstaking efforts! What's a gal (or in Sallu's case, a well-over-middle-aged guy) to do? Use Bobbi Brown's Tinted Eye Brightner. Seriously.This stuff is amazing. It used to come in a little pot so you had to buy a small flat brush to apply it. Well Bobbi's gone and made things simpler. It now comes in a pen form so a separate brush is unnecessary. She's got a wide range of shades so that bodes well for us brownies. I love this stuff - it works wonders and a small dab goes a long way! Just apply a few small dots from your inner eye to just about under your pupil. Use the brush to blend and then finish up with a few light pats of your ring finger. Tah dah! Your circles are camouflaged and you instantly look more awake! Two words of advice though: use just a bit because if you overdo it, it will be impossible to blend, and be sure to blend blend blend.

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 …
