Two Faced 3-Way Lash Lining Tool

This is quite the clever little tool. At time of blogging, I've counted two other well-known brands (Tarte and Clarins), one Japanese brand (Holika Holika), and one less known brand (The Face Shop) that have introduced a similar product. In a nutshell, the innovative, flat, 3-pronged tip allows you to fill in spaces between lashes by stamping tiny dots into the base of the lashes. This product is available at Sephora for $22.

Pros: by carefully pressing the tip into the base of the lashes, you can achieve a defined eye without actually lining the eye. It's great when you want definition, but not the amount of definition you'd get with an eye liner. It's particularly useful for the lower lashline and permits a precise application on the waterline as well. It is relatively easy to remove with a touch of eye makeup remover, and my eyes have not had any adverse reaction.
Cons: sadly, this product smudges in a very significant way. In fact, it smudges more than a simple kohl eye pencil, and has even less staying power. After an hour of wearing, I noticed that the stamped dots simply wore right off in the inner corner of my eyes, and smudging below my lower lashline. In my mind, this undermines the purpose of the product. What a bummer! Also, if you have a steady hand with liquid eye liner, you'll find that this type of product actually takes longer to apply on the upper lash line than a regular liquid liner.
Bottom line: I'd avoid this one and try one of the others in the hope that somebody has come up with a smudge-resistant formulation.

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.
