Sunday #7 - It's new and we want to try it...
Today is the day! It’s Sunday! It’s the day for our ‘It’s new and we want to try it’. But before we start, tell us how was your week? Mine was long (I feel like I’m living in Rihanna’s song …work, work, work) but the good news is that the weather in Portugal was phenomenal (hot days, cold nights…just how I like it). This warm weather made me want to use bright colors and I discovered a beautiful pink lipstick by H&M, perfect for my mood. Did you find something worth it, this week? Maybe a good eye pencil, a perfect hydrating cream? I feel like every week I find something that I love.
On a side note, I just finished my second book from Deborah Harkness trilogy. I’m so excited to know that they´re filming the series (perfect cast, let me tell you). And you? What are you reading? (Two weeks and I probably will be in an anonymous non-book reunion. I don’t have any plans for my next book. (I'm accepting suggestions)
Here I am rambling, I feel I’m always doing this. Sorry! We are here for our dose of de-stress class (or how I like to say, better than Yoga class) and see what this week brought to us.
This week, we chose the website Beautylish*. Honestly, I didn’t know this website, but now that I know the beautiful things that they have, and that they make deliveries to my country, which it’s always good - I will probably order a few things.
So, with no more delays, here are our picks…
*it’s always good to remember that we don’t receive nothing from the websites we choose.
# Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner & Huge Extreme Lash Mascara - Big Shots - $25
This set includes Stila's number one selling waterproof liquid liner (0.016 oz.) and the Big shots mascara (0.44 fl. oz.). According to the information on the website, the eyeliner is perfect to create a variety of eye effects (from thin, precise lines to thick dramatic looks). The formula dries quickly and won't smudge. The fine tip offers accurate application for everyone (novices to pros).
The Huge Extreme Lash Mascara promise to give the biggest, boldest, blackest-black lashes. (Big promises!!)
# Jouer Cosmetics Jeffree Star Long-Wear Lip Topper Sweet Tooth (0.20 oz.) - $16
This topcoat with glittery candy pink shimmer, caught my eye a few weeks ago and I’m obsessed. I will buy it as soon as I can. This is a limited-edition collaboration between Jouer Cosmetics and Jeffree Star. You can wear it alone for a sheer veil of shimmery iridescence or over your favorite lipstick. It’s good to know that this has Jojoba and coconut oils to hydrate the lips.
# Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Lips - $34
These matte liquid lipsticks are available in 10 shades. Hollywood Lips glides like a gloss with a curved applicator that nourishes lips with anti-aging actives, drying down to a soft-matte finish with a velvety light formula. In the pictures that I saw, they seemed to me very pigmented.
Normally I’m torn between two or three colors but I need to be honest: I would like to have all! All the lipsticks have a shade that I like.
(Between us, if my choice were necessary for the world not to end, I would have to choose shimmering coral pink but on the other hand I like cool pale pink too….the humanity would be doom).
# IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Blush - $24
This blush is a best-selling, award winning and now its infused with optical blurring pigments.
Bye Bye Pores technology instantly diffuse the look of pores and discoloration while delivering sheer, buildable color. Let’s not forget that it’s talc-free and perfect for all skin tones and types, it’s loaded with anti-aging, skin-loving ingredients including silk, hydrolyzed collagen, antioxidants and peptides (giving you a youthful flush of brightening color). It’s available in three shades, all of them pretty but my heart goes to the Je ne sais quoi (even the name is pretty- I love French, but I don’t understand more than ten words).
- Je ne sais quoi
- Naturally pretty
- Sweet checks
# Bumble and bumble Save the Day - $45
Unfortunately, this product (from this website) it’s not available for delivery to Portugal. But I still would love to try it. I think it’s interesting and my hair would appreciate it! But, yeah, let’s finger cross that one day it’s available. If you tried it, make me jealous and tell me if you like.
This rich concentrate is infused with Camelia Oil and UV filters to help repair past wear-and-tear – and fortify against future damage.
# Natasha Denona Lila Palette $129
I know, this is not the newest product but bear with me. It’s almost new. At this moment, on beautylish, it out of stock, but if you insert your email, they’ll notify you when its back.
Inspired by her love for the purple color, makeup artist Natasha Denona’s Lila Palette has 15 shadows in four finishes. If you follow a youtuber well known with a name started by a T (I don’t know if I can say the name) you’ll see that these shadows are very pigmented and beautiful. It’s a little expensive, I know, but I think it worth’s the money.

# Bastide Rose Olivier fragrance - $32 (10ml/0.3 fl. oz.) $130 (100ml/3.4 fl. oz.)
Last week we talk a little bit about some of Bastide products. The Rose Olivier it’s their bestselling fragrance and it really caught my eye. In the south of France, a rose bush grows intertwined with the olive tree. The result is a nuanced rose unlike any other and this scent takes on woody notes from its olive lover.
This brand has other two fragrances: Ambre Maquis and Neroli Lumiere. As I tell so many times, my favorite scents are lavender and neroli so I’m excited to try this brand.
What makes us talk about a brand and try their product it’s almost every time their philosophy. Bastide’s is based around simple, quintessential virtues – plenty of water, plants, light, and balance. What’s better than this?
You can buy it here or in Nordstrom website.

After seeing so much interesting products on their website, we choose two that we want to try. According to their website, each ingredient is included for a therapeutic reason.
