DiorShow Mascara.

Yeesh. We truly haven't had one of these posts in a while! My MM backlog is enormous. Well, the best thing to do in such cases is to jump right in so here goes!

I have been a DiorShow Black Out devotee for the last three years courtesy of kid sis, Desitini. Black Out volumizes, lengthens and defines lashes beautifully. I have loved everything about this mascara except for what a pain it is to remove at night. You'd think I was complaining of their waterproof formula, but for daily use I use the non-waterproof and it is still such a pain. So I got to wondering. DiorShow mascara has always been a cult classic, what differentiates it from Black Out? [I should mention here that both mascaras retail at the same price point: USD 24.50]. Well the answer, my dears is that Black Out has kohl pigments added to it to create an "extreme-black" (their words not mine) look. Now if you have black lashes as I do, turns out, that's not such a huge selling point. DiorShow has a fatter brush, making it easier to catch more lashes with a single swipe. The formula for DiorShow is also less thick than Black Out which means it doesn't clump as easily and you can coat it on to your heart's desire. I always found that you had to move rather quickly in applying Black Out because once it set, you couldn't really apply further coats. Finally, since it doesn't contain those extra pigments, DiorShow is also significantly easier to remove at night! The end result: this girl is sold on DiorShow.

Incidentally, if any of you is on the market for a waterproof mascara, the Black Out Waterproof does. not. budge. Seriously. I wore it to the hospital when I gave birth to my bebe and it stayed put for 26 hours. If that isn't smudge proof, I don't know what is!

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…

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.

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.
