PopSugar Must Have July Box

Happy Monday Barbies and Kens!!!! If you follow me on Snapchat or Periscope you would have seen these items from my July Popsugar Must Have July box.
What is the PopSugar Must Have Box?
It is a monthly lifestyle box which include a variety of items from beauty, skincare, household, fashion, fitness etc.

How much is it per month?
It is $39.95 per month

These are the items that I received for review purposes.
 Joe Chips Classic Sea Salt Retro Chips – Value $1.50
I love chips and this was one of those chips that I ate as soon as I opened the box. I liked how crunchy it was with the perfect amount of salt.
 House of Pom Emoji Cocktail Napkins – Value $25
I love these coasters. I was not able to use them this summer but I will be next summer. I envision using them outside when I make Jamaican rum punch or some Jamaican lemonade. These will add the finishing touches to any drink.
 Pintrill Pineapple Pin – Value $12
Sunnylife Inflatable Swan Drink Holder – Value $18 
This inflatable drink holder was another piece that I was not able to use. I wanted to use it at a pool party to serve drinks to my friends. I think this will be a little different and the will think they are at a pool in Vegas.


Sachajuan Hair in the Sun – Value $32
I did not use this product in my hair because I think the product was not compatible with my hair type and texture. This is not to say the product is bad.


Michael Stars Porcelain Skinny Scarf in White – Value $30
Love a good hair tie and headband. I will be posting some picture on my Instagram on how I style it. Please follow me there at junglebarbie1.

Bantu Knotout with Locs

Happy Monday Barbies and Kens!!! Today, I have the results from my Bantu Knots. I took them down a week ago. To prevent frizzing, I used the Hydratherma Growth oil but you can use whatever oil you have.

Here are a few pictures of a simple style I put together. I will have tutorial with more styles coming up. I also post my daily hairstyles on Instagram (@junglebarbie1) and Snapchat (Thejunglebarbie).

I also have a video showcasing the process. Check it out below.

Thank you for reading and watching.

The Perfect Nude Lip Combo for Women of Color

Finding the perfect nude lip color is very challenging for women of color. They are either too light (which is very common) or they make us look very pale. From playing around with different nudes, I found a great combo that works with women of color and it does not require too much manipulation.
The combo I found is Nudestix Intense Matte Lip and Cheek Pencil in the color Purity paired with Jordana Lipliner in the color brown (purchase here). I used the Jordana lipliner to outline the natural shape of my lips and then fill it in with the Nudestix Purity lip pencil (purchase here). If you would like to see how I did it checkout my makeup video here or below.
As you can see it worked well for my skin tone and did not give me that ghost dead look. As I find more combinations I will share them. What is your favorite nude lip combo?
Thank you for reading. Until tomorrow, stay fab and be creative.
XOXO,
JB

Pick6deals.com Makeup Haul on a Budget



Today, I have a few items I chose from the website pick6deals.com. All the items I chose was $40 and I got free shipping. If you are someone who likes makeup or want to start a career in makeup, then I would recommend this site as you will be able to get items for your kit or self without breaking the bank.
The items came well packaged to ensure that all my items came intact.
I got the following items because I want to do more videos and tutorial catering to beginners as well as budgetistas.

1. Oval Brush #7
This brush looks like the Artis brushes. I have never tried the Artis brushes so I do not know how they compare to these but I am willing to try these to see how they apply makeup. I am a sponge girl so I am excited to see if this brush wow me.

Palettes are usually cost effective because you get a wide range of colors for less. This neutral palette has a great mix shimmer and matte colors great for varying looks, skin types and tones.

Color correcting is a trending makeup technique and if not done properly can look clownish. I got these to do a tutorial on how and when I use them. These I bought as a bundle and got a deal. I would suggest this because one is usually $2.99. Stay tuned for that video on my Youtube channel. If you have not subscribed to my Youtube channel, you can do so here.


I like buying items that can double up or in this case triple up. This save a lot of money. I usually use my makeup items in unconventional ways. For example, I have an eyeshadow that I use as an highlighter because I think it looks great. NYX is an inexpensive brand of great quality so have it serves multiple purposes is a win win.

I know lashes is not every girl's cup of tea but they can elevate your makeup look. If you do not like to wear false lashes, I will be having a post as well as a video demonstrating how to get fuller longer lashes. I like these lashes because they have the invisible band which affords for a more natural look. 
I have the Ardell wispies, Ardell Demi wispies and the Miss Adoro #43 Do you wear lashes or you stick to mascaras?

Lash adhesive is very important when you wear false lashes. Having a good lash adhesive will ensure you have no accidents during your time wearing the lashes. So, I like this glue because it keep my lashes on all day as well as it dries black and blends in seemlessly with my lashes and the false lashes. 

Every girl needs a brown lipliner in her life. This one from Jordana is not super dark but it gives you that subtle look on your lips. I wore it as a lipstick yesterday in one of my videos and got lots of question as to what I was wearing. Apart from the price point ($1), I liked the color and the finish it gave. What's your favorite brown lipliner?

Those were all the items I pickup from pick6deals.com. Check them out here and see the amazing deals for yourself.
Thank you for reading. Until tomorrow, stay fab and be creative.
XOXO,
