Project Tryout: Bulu Box

Hi Ya’ll,

I received a Bulu box over the weekend and I will have to show you what I receive.I switched my box my from weight loss to just general wellness and I am glad I did. With the previous boxes I was receiving alot of pills that were not going to help because they were one pill samples.
1. Chike Nutrition High Protein Coffee.
2.Beanfields Bean and Rice Chips in Barbecue. Full size sample. This is actually very flavorful compared to Baked Lays barbecue. On the bag it says that it’s vegan, gluten free and all natural. The product also is corn free and has 4 grams in fiber, 4 grams protein. Its pretty tasty.
3.Helps Tea for her and Rehydration Diets
4.Power Crunch Bar in French Vanilla creme . I had this sample before and for it was pretty taste considering that I think most protein bars have a bad taste, aftertaste, and the protein taste like sludge.
5.Puracyn Wound and Skin Care solution.This is a wound spray that I that was really cool since I will be traveling in and out of the country this year. YIpppeee!It is for scrapes, burns and lacerations. It does not contain any antibiotics,steriods, alcohol or iodine. It is also PH neutral and safe for adults and children.

Project Tryout:Ipsy July Glambag

Hi Guys,
You know its time for another glam bag and this time its for Ipsy glambag (the theme is Sensationally Sunkissed) . I want to start from what I did not like. I find that with Ipsy bag I have a strong first impressions right of the back.
1.Hang ten dark tanning oil with SPF. I am  Black or African American what have you. I’m not a light skin person which we do have in my community but  I have no problem darkening in the sun. I do not burn. I don’t need this. Its a giveaway item. Don’t even want to try it.
2.Pixi tinted brilliance balm on pretty in pink. Another item that I don’t need. Every time I receive  a  pink lip product, I feel like it doesn’t work and I regret trying it because it could of been of a great edition to my giveaway box.
3. Bare minerals 5in1 bb advanced Performance cream eye shadow . This eye shadow looks great but it has sun screen in it which leads me to  believe that I may get flashback from a flash of a camera. I will try it but only for daytime looks when I am not being chased by the paps. (LOL)
4.Pur  Big look mascara with argan oil and is  waterproof. I have never gone out and bought mascara even more so waterproof mascara. I really want to try this. However the argan oil is fifth from the bottom so I don’t know how much I will be actually getting in this sample.
5.Lavilin bio balance jojoba skin smoother . It says on the tube use after intense physical activity. When I rubbed it in my skin,it reminded me of the smell of cortisone cream. I read the ingredients and the jojoba oil is second after water. Yeah second from the top. I am interested since I have been walking around the reservoir.
Check out the photos.

P.s. let me tell you about this crappy camera. I have been working around this camera because I thought the flash was broken. Because I am not a baller or date a man who can just drop a 790 on a camera and  because we have real bills to pay,you know school loans,upcoming trips and rent, I had to work around it. When I had taken pictures in somewhat low light the camera said raise the flash. When I  followed the directions which  I usually ignore because it  doesn’t do anything, it takes the picture with flash.  I didn’t use the photo because it stunk  but I was like surprised. OK that’s the end of my story. Bye guys

Brown Series: Chestnut Lip Liner

Hi Beauties,
We are about to be at the end of the brown series and there is an upcoming series that I will be doing on Wednesdays. Stay tuned and help me say goodbye to the brown series. Again, thanks for your continued support.
Chestnut lipliner is a holy grail product for any deep/dark skin beauty. It is literally the anchor to wearing colors that may not match your tone or may be too light for our coloring. You can even wear it buy itself. Its like a deep coffee color. On my lips , I put it on my bottom lip first because my top lip is almost the same color as the lip pencil. I don’t know whats in it but it definitely a neutralizer which can be worn with cool or warm lipsticks and lipglosses. MAC describes it as an intense brown and priced at $15 dollars.

Also, it is suppose to be smudge and flake proof. I wish I could use this but I have so many mascara samples. They even sent a card with a coupon that you are suppose frame your eye lash and put it on IG to showcase the mascara. *bring on the the Lucy Ball cry*
2. Hask Argan oil Intense Deep Conditioning Hair treatment| Retails for 2.49 1.75 oz. This was also a pretty healthy sample size. This product boast that it restores with its nourishing cream that delivers results for 2 weeks. You apply after wetting your hair , leaving your hair in for ten minutes. That’s exactly how I was going to use it.
3. Body Drench Candy Licious Lips| Retails for 3.99 0.09 This product says that its infused with beeswax, coconut oil, vitamin E. The product card is saying it taste the real thing (i wont be licking it right now) . This lip balm leaves no color which I love.
4. Anna Naturals Glowing MAMA Walnut Face and Body Scrub| Retails for 10.99. This sample is a favorite of natural beauties and expecting moms (so the card says). It has no parabens, harsh chemicals or artificial fragrances. It is a luxe vegan product is infused with moisturizing botanicals.
5. Starlooks lip liner |retails for 12.00. This pencil came in the color Tickle Me Pink. I received this color in previous box from Ipsy or BirchBox. It touts that it can be used as a all over color or as a outliner. It is a full coverage lipliner and lasts all day. I do like the color but I have the same color.

Brown Series: MAC Gel

Hi Yall,
I am nearing the end of my brown series except for a couple of lip liners. My last lipstick for the brown series is MAC Gel. This a permanent color which you can in the store on line. This color is describes as a sheer metallic beige. I would use this lipstick as a topper on other lipsticks because wearing it by itself is a no go at least for me .

Pink Series:On Wednesday we wear pink

Hi Guys,
My series on lipsticks have been really being doing well on views and comments.Thank you. I really appreciate you all who have been reading my posts and all the new people who have been attracted to my blog because of the series.I have done red,brown,purple and orange. Now its time for the pinks. I’m not a pink person and I really can’t stand the color, my mom use to make me wear it a lot as a child and I liked it then but now I’m not a fan or at least I thought I wasn’t.
Another blogger here on WordPress named beauty412 has a series about makeup involving pink (called on Wednesday we wear pink) and I wanted to join in on the fun and keep using makeup. So here is my pink lipstick series on wearing pink lipstick. Now,all I need is a black leather jacket by hinge with the tapered back and a round collar (I know real specific).
