New this week: leather-feather-tipped Stila eyeliner brushes (so lovely, but weirdly expensive for just a liner brush, no?), matte pastel finishing powders, and New Dimension lifting products (but more on that soon).
And that new NARS NARSissist palette and Sephora brushes — mmpfh. Five kinds of oh-so-pretty!
Can you believe that it’s already June?! Because dude, I cannot. It is way too soon for this, and I am not ready.
In other news, though, here’s what’s new this month at Nordstrom and Sephora! Sephora has actually done a great job of picking up niche beauty brands again this year, which is really exciting — I feel like they were definitely moving away from that for a long while, but with weird new products like that Eborian Pâte au Ginseng mask, those Besamé Boudoir brushes, and the Make Up Eraser (I’m dying to know if that works), they’re definitely branching out into niche finds again.
I also have my eye on the Formula X Infinite Ombré Nail Design Set, which makes me think of the new OPI Color Paints. It doesn’t look like much at first glance, but some of the looks Sephora has up on their Beauty Board make it look really cool.
I was browsing the Sephora app from my bed the other day (dangerous, I know) and there were SO MANY cool new things that I absolutely had to put together a fresh New This Week post for you guys.
“Products like what,” you ask? Like the Bite Beauty Watercolor Lip Gloss Library ($49 USD), which features five absolutely beautiful pastel lipglosses and seven pretty (and entirely wearable) shades. Or products like the new Clinique Cheek Pop Blushes ($21 USD) — I want Heather Pop so bad. Or the AERIN and Commodity perfumes that are now available on the Sephora site. (I need AERIN Lilac Path and Waterlily Sun in my life, like, yesterday. They’re amazing.)
But most importantly, I wanted to share these product launches with you guys today because (!!!) Sephora is currently running their Beauty Insider Spring Sale, which is 10% off for BIs until the 20th and 15% off for VIBs and VIB Rouges until the 21st!

And, from the contouring committee… (for some reason almost none of these were available in widget form): six freaking gazillion new releases.
I mean, hey. I love contouring as much as the next gal–possibly more; I learned to sculpt and contour long before I even bothered to buy my first blush–but can you say whoa? Talk about options! These are the contouring products from just the “what’s new” page; this doesn’t even cover the rest of the category!
I haven’t done one of these in a while, so here’s what’s new in the beauty world this month! Aside from those scribbly Smashbox pencils, I’ve got my eye on those bareMinerals palettes and the new Armani Eye Tints — those moussey doe-foot eyeshadows tend to wear really well on oily lids.
Plus, I mean, 8-pan palettes from Clinique for only $36?! If they’re as good as the quads, you should be buying ’em in every darn shade.
For once, the colour of the year is one that I think we can all appreciate: Marsala. It’s a little drab, a little red, and a little rustic — so, basically, a colour that I should hate (but totally don’t).
Unlike the bright green and violet that we’ve seen these past two years, Marsala is more or less wearable… maybe a little more on the less side, for us cool-toned girls. But it’s work-appropriate, at least, and that’s definitely a start!
And that rose gold packaging — I mean, Sephora isn’t even playing fair anymore.
