MISSHA BB cream No.21 (light beige) review and FOTD

The most awaited post of BBcream is finally here . So brace yourselves ladies.
Komal's mom from Komaljewelleryanalysis was coming back from Korea .So we asked if she could bring 2 BB creams one each for me and Bharti (Bharti's idea! superb idea i knwww!!!)

I couldn't wait for the day to come when i would hold the BBcream in my arms and pamper it like my baby :p at the same time i was a little apprehensive about the shade-what if it doesnt suit me?what if its too dark for me?what if it leaves a white casts like everyone is complaining?...(boy, the nervousness was killing me!!)

when i finally receieved the courier, i swear i tore it open like a hungry little soul :p
and there she was, all tucked up in between crumbled paper sheets. The glorious moment when i got to hold her i had the twinkle in my eyes .
okay..too much blabbering.

My samsung corby revamped :p

i'm the kind of person who has difficulty in letting go of things eg i used my old phone motorola v3i for 5 yrs.
and finally when it broke down beyond repair my mom got me Samsung qwerty.
I love this phone because of it yellow cover but then it gets a lil boring at times.
So , since i have 2 covers -one black and the other yellow, i thought i'll revamped it with something kawaii.
This is what "the boy" got me :p

My first make up swap

i've been dying to create one kpop look and didn't have a silver liner.
Instead of buying a new one i thought i'll just swap it with some one who wants  to exchange for silver liner :)
so i posted the suggestion on stylecraze community.
I got a phenomenal response .

phew...this has been a tough day....
after a lot of contemplation, analysing my decision again and again , i've decided to change my blog name from "skull bones and love of fashion " to "Dr.poison ivy's beauty blog"

do u know what a tough and tiring job it is ? revamping the whole blog name  and changing the details in every community whr its been registered as the former?
i'm so exhausted.... mentally ...

anyway, now that everything is done, there s just a tiny problem ...i cant change my fb page name .
changing page name is possible only if i lhv less than 200 likes and i have 250....
what should i do :(

helpppppppppp!!! should i ask my friends to unlike my page and like it back later after the name is changed??
do u think its a wise decision?

What is a BB cream?

image source google

Ever since i saw the first Korean drama 7 years ago, i have always been fascinated about how flawless the korean actresses looked on screen. They put on a shiny peach lip gloss and that's it!!! no kohl , no flashy blush. , i secretly wish i had skin like that . little did i know , they had a secret helper too-BB cream :)

If you've been living in a cave, BB cream might sound alien to you.
Otherwise , so many of you know its the most raved beauty product in the blogging world these days.(now that we can finally lay our hands on them via all the international online websites).

I finally got my very own BB cream . But before i review my baby bb cream missha :p (yes ! my bb cream has a name- Missy Baby), i wanted to give an introduction on BBcream for those of you who are new to it. A big sorry to those who already know about it :p

i love all the loveee and likes i got from my fellow bloggers.

Maybelline Eye studio gel liner in Black review and swatch

Since the day i learnt how to apply kohl, i haven't stopped looking for the purrrfect kohl that will stay with me 9 to 5  even when im all teary . And lucky for so many of us , Maybelline came out with a pocket friendly gel liner and i couldn't wait to get my hands on it. Untill finally i did and i haven't been able to stop using it. I use this for all my NOTDS. I don't think i'll ever fall out of love with this one.

The best thing about having a bff who is an Oriflame agent is i can get it in double discounts :p
Anyway this is my Oriflame haul last month .
But i was too lazy to post it.
Finally i got through the lazy phase and here s the post :p
TOTAL- Rs.1750/-
i paid 1500 :)


This is how the story begins.
Maybelline had just launnched its new collection (2012) of pressed powders and foundations . While i was dyinggg to get my hands on one of them i couldn't do so as i was stuck in Bihar and the humidity was killing me. Everytime i went out my face ended up looking like a drop of oil!

That's when i saw one of my bffs using this product and i ordered it from her. Ever since then this has been my HG matte control pressed powder.

LOVE parcel from Crazypoplock

Now this is one post i've been dyinggg to blog about :)
You remember my kawaii friend Bharti of CRAZYPOPLOCK?

Day before yesterday when i came back from Select city walk, my neighbor told me that the postman came with a courier. I was a little confused because i am shop dieting so i hadn't ordered anything.
Then in the evening while texting with Bharti she asked me if any parcel came for me.
i was like " ummm ..the neighbor told me so but i wasnt there to receive it so maybe i'll get it tomorrow".
And i got really excited...:p i kept asking her what it was, but boy, she just wont tell me :p


well , i have been a very very lazy girl.
haven't made a single nail art after i moved to Delhi.
What can i say, this place spoils me :p

Deborah Milano 7 days long 838 nailpolish review and NOTD

I've been collecting a lot of cosmetics in Tangerine these year.
So for a little twist i decided to go for this deep fuschia with a purple undertone.
The Shade is really unique and i haven't seen much of this shade around.
I love it :)

Kiehl's gift hamper

Yesterday was the Best and worst day of my life.
Best because i got an ultra pretty stilettoe from Nine west.
hehehhhh..(biggg grin*)
Worst because i got slpinter on my nail bed while mopping the floor and it just won't come out :(
The harder i tried, the deeper it went.
Went to the doctor and he gave me Magnesium sulphate dressing (which is supposed to draw out the splinter).
but it never did :(
i've been roaming the whole market place since morning looking for a point tweezer.
its not available anywhere!!! what  was i supposed to do.

Colorbar Lash illusion Mascara Duo review and EOTD

I have ordered so many things from that i've lost track of which ones came first :p
Anyway, i was hunting for the perfect mascara- one that wil give me both volume and length.
The thing is i have very scanty and short eyelashes :(
but every mascara i came across was either for length or for volume- never both !!
So when i came across this Colorbar mascara ,i ordered it without second thoughts.

Sparkly purple eye tutorial

Indian eyes and Oriental eyes are very different.
They have multiple creases that opens up their eyes making it look bigger and easier to style.
As for monolids like me, its a very tough job.
If we apply eyeshadows above the crease it makes us look like we're overdoing it.
If we dont go beyond that , any eye make up we make looks non existent (except for winged cat eyes- no wonder everyone loves winged eyes)
So, here s a simple tutorial of  what i wore today.

Mimididi 3D Diamond Powder EyeShadow- No.12 and no. 27 review

You know that i love
they have the most amazing fake eyelashes at super reasonable price.

PACKAGE- the eye shaodws come in cute transparent pots. So you can easily see the shades even without opening the lid. There are 2 decks- first one for the eye shadow and the latter contains a round mirror with an applicator (awww!!) . they are travel friendly. The package is sturdy on the outside . However when you try to flip the lower deck too much, it tends to get frail and loose.

Shades- there are 27 shades.they sent me No. 12 (algae green) and no. 27 (purple).
the eye shadows are very pigmented and have velvety texture.
As the name suggest , they contain silver shimmers.
But they are not exactly micro so they tend to fall out a lot.
On me the eye shadows stay for 5-6 hours.

 What the company claims-
Brand New With Original Retail Packing Box
3D Diamond Powder EyeShadow
Suitable For Make Up
Size : 43mm X 43mm X 16mm

Go here to buy them

Price- 7.85 $

Go get this if you like experimenting with colors to get new looks :)

Kiehl's India experience

Ladies, i know i've been MIA for so many days.
Was down with typhoid and seems the antibiotic is too strong for me i cant stop throwing up (sob sob*)
I feel a little better this morning so i decided to update my blog with my Kiehl's India experience.

For those of you who do not know, i recently won a giveaway from Ankita of corallista sponsored by Kiehl's India . woohooo!! (i know i love giveaways :))
The expiry date of the coupon was 30th april so i dragged my little sisters with me all the way to Vasant kunj, Ambience Mall , Delhi. its 22 stations away from my place by metro. (hehe But anything for beauty right?)
