A Week in Beauty – November 19 – November 25

Hellooo! Welcome to the second week of #AWeekInBeauty. If you missed last week’s post, make sure you check it out here. If you don’t know what A Week in Beauty is, it is a post where I do a summary/overview of the week including makeup releases, Instagram accounts I loved during that week, and blog posts I enjoyed reading, including my own! Make sure to leave me your thoughts in the comments section, and if you enjoyed this, follow my blog so you can be updated whenever I post.

A Week in Makeup Releases

Colourpop Cosmetics Double Entendre Palette

This is the newest release by Colourpop cosmetics. They made it available just in time for Black Friday, and it is a lovely palette full of neutral shades. It has a great mixture of cool tones, warm tones, mattes, and shimmers, making it a great palette for you to travel with as you’ll be able to create a variety of looks. Colourpop is having a Black Friday sale that I believe runs until Saturday night so you can snatch this up with 20% off!

Fenty Beauty by Rihanna Stunna Lip Paint Longwear Fluid Lip Color

This image is property of Fenty Beauty and Sephora.

Have you tried Fenty Beauty yet? I haven’t! But this new lipstick is absolutely gorgeous, and I can’t get over the packaging. Stunna was announced a couple of weeks ago, but it was only available in stores and online yesterday. My only hesitation with this liquid lipstick is the applicator. I am used to the applicators that are flat on one side and have a pointed-rounded point, and I find these make it a lot easier to apply.

Those are the only two makeup releases I have in mind for the past week, but if there are any I missed and you think deserved to be mentioned, leave it in the comments below so others can see as well!

A Week in Instagram

Wrayn is one of the nicest women on Instagram! She has a lovely feed where she posts about fashion, beauty, and lifestyle. She also posts a lot on Instagram stories where she does more in-depth reviews than on her posts. In her stories she also likes to highlight any sales that are going on of any products she’s mentioned. Something I really like is that she doesn’t use Like to Know it, so she actually tells you where products are from instead of making you go to another site to see. (If you don’t know what LiketoKnowit is, click here to find out more!)

This is another one of those only-makeup accounts, and as a beauty blogger, I get so much inspiration from these! Usually, the captions are short reviews on particular products, and she’s always happy to answer any specific questions you might have on any of the pictured products. I’ve been following Mia for a couple of months now, and getting to know her through her posts and sometimes through messages has been great!

  • Thank @pixibeauty for the most beautiful package ♥️ The #pixibeauty #mattelastliquidlip is one of my favorite #mattelipstick formulas so you have no idea how excited I was when Pixi announced they were releasing new shades 🎉 And I was even MORE excited when this showed up at my door. I already owned the original shades so I gifted the extra ones to my friend (and #skincare queen 👑) @mod.young.
This formula is so lightweight, and not drying, and really, the only #matteliquidlipstick I use anymore. My favorite shade from this new release HAS to be #BerryBoost. The perfect shade for #fall🍁
No se imaginan la felicidad cuando llego este paquetito a mi puerta 😍 Estos labiales líquidos de @pixibeauty son mis favoritos. Vivo enamorada de los seis tonos que lanzaron primero, y ahora han lanzado cinco nuevos tonos más vibrantes y coloridos.
  • Please ignore the disgusting stage of my #glossier #cloudpaints 🙈 But these are my go-to cream blushes (pretty much all the ones I own). I find that cream blushes can give the most natural, flushed look and I love that. The #cloudpaint is the one I have been using the longest but I think the @flowerbeauty #blushbomb color drops are VERY similar (and MORE affordable). My newest addition is the #lilahbeauty divine duo - again, gorgeous shade and amazing formula.
Do you like a cream blush? Or do you prefer a powder blush?
Hablemos de rubores en crema! Me parece que en esta presentación el rubor se puede ver tan natural, así como pretendiendo que hicimos ejercicio pero llevamos tres horas en el sofá. Así. Estos son mis favoritos (todos los que tengo). Si buscan una opción económica les recomiendo el de Flower Beauty. Muy similar al de glossier.

  • Showing you the various stages of this look from the final outcome to my very, very naked face from a couple of weeks ago. This week has been a test to my #confidence. I got a stye(eyelid pimple) on my left eye and I looked like I had been punched (according to me). This meant I couldn’t wear ANY eye makeup. While I preach that #beauty is not dependent on #makeup, I still felt very insecure not being able to put on mascara or eyeliner. We get used to seeing ourselves in a certain way, and when we don’t look like what we’re used to, it’s not necessarily a bad thing - but just different. In my mind, if I can see a “flaw,” everyone else can see it too. When the reality is they’re probably not even paying attention. •
Do you also get up close and personal with your mirror and wonder if others can see that tiny little mark on your cheek?
Mostrándoles este look de hace un par de semanas desde el acabado hasta mi carita bien desnuda. Esta semana me ha salido un orzuelo en el párpado izquierdo lo que significó que no me podía poner #maquillaje en los ojos. Estando acostumbrada a verme CON maquillaje, fue muy extraño verme sin. Cuando estoy en la casa sin planes de ir a ningún lado, nunca me maquillo. Pero cuando voy a la universidad si. Y fue difícil. Porque pensaba que todo el mundo se iba a dar cuenta cuando la realidad es que probablemente ni siquiera estén prestando atención.
  • Nothing like #TextureTuesday and dipping into a brand new pot of @farmacybeauty #GreenClean. I had only tried one other balm before this one - and it hadn’t really been an enjoyable experience. I then got a mini somewhere and I am now the proud mother of this baby.
I love how well this removes my makeup. It is so effective and I find that I don’t have to use a lot of product. Usually I scoop some out and then start grabbing it with my fingers, but I always have some left over. If you’re in the market for a cleanser, I definitely recommend you give this one a chance. It won’t disappoint you!
Como les mostré en mis historias, he empezado un tarro nuevo de este bálsamo para desmaquillarse de #farmacybeauty. Es súper efectivo en remover maquillaje e impurezas de la piel. No me reseca la piel para nada. Súper recomendado!
  • Happy #MACMonday featuring my two newest addition to my humble @maccosmetics collection. I picked up two shades of their new #MACPowderKiss formula - Shocking Revelation (the more red/berry), and Burning Love (the deeper shade). I have yet to use them on my lips 👄 but I am very impressed by the formula! Have you tried these yet?
Feliz Lunes de #MACCosmetics ♥️Les presento las últimas adiciones a mi humilde colección. Dos labiales de su nueva fórmula #PowderKiss en Shocking Revelation y Burning Love. Ya los probaron?
  • Nothing like having enough time to do a full face of makeup. Honestly, my most relaxing time is picking out what I’m going to use, playing some YouTube, and doing my makeup. Even when I don’t have plans of going anywhere 🙈 there are about 13 products here. How many are there in your #fullfacemakeup routine!?
Nada como tener el tiempo para jugar con todo esto. Para mi no hay nada más relajante que escoger que voy a usar, poner YouTube, y maquillarme. Aún cuando no voy para ninguna parte 🙈 aquí hay más o menos 13 productos. Cuantos hay en su rutina?
