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

NARS NARSissist Wanted Eyeshadow Palette

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.

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.

  • That new Nars palette looks so beautiful! Those colours are right up my alley!

    I’m glad you enjoyed my post! Thanks for showing it so much love! <3

    • No problem! It is all well-deserved. And yess that NARS palette looks so gorgeous

  • Thank you so much for mentioning me! I really appreciate it and glad I came across you as well. I’m also excited for the new NARS palette. I hope it’s as great as the Loaded.

    And I love classic love!!

    • Aren’t they? That palette is beautiful

  • Thank you!!

  • So excited for the Jouer Holiday sets!


  • Everyone talks about eyebrows being sisters not twins... I feel the same way about eyelashes. Loved trying out the @marcbeauty Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara. It's easy for this one to get on the clumpy side, but I think wiping the excess off really helps. What are your favorite mascara tricks to make them look more even?
Todo el mundo dice que las cejas son hermanas no gemelas... así me siento yo acerca de las pestañas. Cuales son sus trucos para hacerlas ver parejas?

  • Happy Wednesday!! Went foundation-less for this and forgot how much I like it! Before getting into makeup I would only do concealer and powder. After I got into makeup I started feeling like I HAD to wear some sort of base. You don't HAVE to do anything and you'll look gorgeous as long as you're feeling comfortable with yourself
Aquí me salte la base. Antes de que me obsesionada con el maquillaje solo usaba corrector y polvos. Luego empece a sentir que TENÍA que usar algún tipo de base. La verdad es que no TIENES que hacer nada. Te verás hermosa con tal de que te estás sintiendo cómoda!

  • Would be lying if I said these were today's picks. I wish. But I am wearing the @marcbeauty mascara. What are you wearing today?
Les estaria mintiendo si les digo que estos fueron los productos que use hoy. Ya quisiera. Pero si estoy usando esa pestañina. Que usaron ustedes hoy?
