AdWatch: Piggy Chops for GUESS

This girl is everywhere! With a major Bollywood film release in Krrrish 3, and nonstop PR appearances to promote the film, Piggy Chops must have a caffeine IV drip as she is equally busy on this side of the pond. First she generated buzz for signing with an American record label, she collaborated with and Pitbull releasing successful singles, she did a related bit of promo work for the NFL, and even provided the voice for the character of Ishani in the Planes movie. Now this last one is a big deal in my home. When you have two baby boys, one of whom adores the Cars and Planes franchises, and you can take them to a theater and point to an Indian main character that is not some laughable caricature or Indian but not portrayed by an Indian (I'm looking at you, Disney's 1994 live-action Jungle Book), it is a big freaking deal. But ... I digress. Piggy Chops is busy racking up yet another first! GUESS has recently announced PC as its latest Guess Girl, adding her to a long line of famous beauties like Alessandra Ambrosio and Adriana Lima. The ads featuring Priyanka were shot by Bryan Adams. Per the Huff Post and E! News, GUESS's Paul Marciano felt Priyanka was a modern-day Sophia Loren (the mega oomph hair and cat eyeliner featured in the ads do seem to pay homage to the screen siren). The first desi model for this global brand - way to go PC!

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 …
