Five words to describe shopping at Bluemercury: kid in a candy store. The super-friendly team is well-versed on the vast array of products, and if you're looking for an amazing makeup application or touch-up (after an on-site facial perhaps?), you won't be disappointed.
Top Seller: NARS Bronzing Powder In Laguna
"François Nars is a genius," says Bluemercury founder Marla Malcolm Beck. "His bronzing powder in Laguna is a best seller because it is a warm, light bronze color that works on so many women. We like to swipe it over cheeks, forehead, and chin for a soft healthy radiant glow."
NARS Bronzing Powder In Laguna, $36, available at Bluemercury.
Top Seller: Trish McEvoy High Volume Mascara
"This mascara never smudges and tubes around the lashes rather than paints them. The precision brush grabs lashes at the roots to lengthen even the shortest hairs. And, it lasts all day and night."
Trish McEvoy High Volume Mascara, $30, available at Bluemercury.
Malcom Beck's Pick: M-61 Hydraboost
"As we start transitioning into spring, our skin-care regimen should change as well, swapping out heavy formulas with lighter versions that don't compromise the efficacy of the products. The new M-61 Hydraboost Eye is power-packed with peptides to help strengthen, hydrate, and firm the eye area, but is light enough to wear during the day and under concealer. Use it midday as a quick pick-me-up to instantly brighten the eye area, as mulberry, and soy help improve microcirculation."
M-61 Hydraboost, $78, available at Bluemercury.
