I’m back after a short little hiatus! I cannot begin to explain how under the weather I was for the entire month of May. I think I’m finally starting to turn the corner, but it’s been a very slow process. And I think the culprit’s been my seasonal allergies, which I never even had until this year. It’s been bad for everyone this year, and I’m hoping I can recover from this soon because I’ve been a hermit for too long now.
Now for the fun stuff…
A few weeks ago, I was invited to check out the new Bluemercury shop in the Kenwood Macy’s. I had heard that Macy’s acquired Bluemercury last year, but admittedly didn’t have much personal experience with the beauty company. That all changed when I got a hands-on experience a few weeks back, and let’s just say I’m a believer.
Bluemercury offers luxury beauty products (many of which are hard to find anywhere else) and also offers in-house spa treatments. Yes, you can shop for makeup and get pampered all in one place. How revolutionary is that?! They have staple brands like NARS, Estée Lauder and Clinique, and tons of luxury brands that can be hard to find in brick and mortar stores. Some of my personal favorites (Eyeko and Patchology) are also sold at Bluemercury, which made me freak out a little upon discovering this.
Another brand worth mentioning is M-61, a skincare line from Bluemercury founder Marla Malcolm Beck. Think of it as skincare products with all the natural ingredients you’d want and none of that extra bad stuff that you see in most products.
The ladies at Bluemercury generously gifted me with lots of new products to try, and boy do they know what they’re talking about! I’ve been using the Lune + Aster Realglow Primer religiously, and can’t say enough about how smoothly it blends on my skin. It provides a subtle glow and has been the perfect base for my beauty routine.
