A Week in Beauty – Nov 12 – Nov 18

Hi everyone! I thought I would start a new series – “A Week in Beauty” – where I do a summary/overview of the week including makeup releases, Instagram accounts I loved this week, and blog posts I enjoyed reading, including my own! Let me know if you like this or if you find this useful, I want to make sure I’m creating content you enjoy. I am always looking for new blogs to follow and Instagram beauty bloggers, so I know this would be useful to me. Soooo without further ado, let’s get started with the first ever A Week in Beauty!

A Week in Makeup Releases

Even though this eyeshadow palette is not available YET, it was announced this week. This new NARS palette is gorgeous and it follows the same theme as their NARSissist Loaded Eyeshadow Palette. The palette will retail for $59.00 and it seems like it will be first available to Sephora Rouge members, before being available to the rest of the public.

Jouer’s Holiday Collection is filled with amazing sets! Including the Best of Nudes Mini Lip Crème Gift Set pictured above. The set retails for $34.00, it comes with eight mini versions of their Lip Creme lipsticks. Other sets include,

This collection is more about gifting than new products, but it would also be a great time to take advantage of these sets.

Another Sephora release! Isn’t it beautiful? This highlighter palette will retail for $36.00. It will be available starting November 21 to Rouge and VIB members, and on November 23 to everyone else!

A Week in Instagram

Denise is one of my favorite makeup Instagrammers! Her feed is always so lovely, the variety of products is great, and she’s one of the nicest people I’ve stumbled upon on Instagram. If you ever need any makeup advice, or if you’re thinking of buying a makeup product but want an honest opinion, check out her profile and check if she’s mentioned the product before! She’ll answer any questions you might have. Denise also has a blog so make sure you check that out as well!

Becca’s feed is everything I wish my feed would be! If you ever need some Instagram inspriation, make sure to check her out. The photos are amazing quality, the composition is beautiful, and overall, just one of my favorite aesthetics on Instagram. She manages to make her feed look consistent and pleasant to look at.
