Makeup Haul – Blue Mercury

Who doesn’t love a neighborhood boutique for beauty products/services? Blue Mercury (founded in 1999) opened their first location in Georgetown, where they offered high quality products with honest and expert advice to their customers. If you’ve ever shopped at Blue Mercury, you know that the overall shopping experience is truly one of a kind! It has become my new one-stop shop for beauty.

On my most recent visit to Blue Mercury, I decided to treat myself with a new spring beauty routine including products from some of my favorite beauty brands: NARS, Laura Mercier, Caudalie, and Oribe.

Oribe Après Beach Wave and Shine Spray:  This product gives shine, control and those beach waves we want all summer long. Packaging reads – Shake. Spray on wet or dry hair. Tousle to taste and let dry in the St. Tropez air. Follow with lipstick and heels.

NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer: This concealer is so lightweight yet so effective! The build-able coverage is perfect for this creamy concealer available in 10 shades.  PS: You will love the luminous finish!

Caudalie Beauty Elixir: “Inspired by the “elixir of youth” used by Queen Isabelle of Hungary, this skincare smoothes features, tightens pores and provides an instant burst of radiance to the complexion.” -BlueMercury. I love this product for a nice pick-me-up throughout the day!

Laura Mercier Crème Smooth Lip Colour: New to the Laura Mercier family, these lipsticks are the perfect blend of color, texture, and finish. I love the Olive Oil and Vitamin E that makes your lips feel incredibly smooth. In love with ‘Palm Beach’.

Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour: Long wear. Crease proof. Beautiful color range. What more can you ask for in a travel eyeshadow stick? I purchased Sand Wash for a perfect summer color!

NARS Satin Lip Pencil: Inside this lip pencil packs high pigmented colors with a 12 hour wear. The best part? They are moisturizing your lips! PS: There are so many great shades to choose from!

Hey Chicagoland! There are Blue Mercury locations in Lincoln Park (2208 North Halsted), Southport (3512 N. Southport Avenue), Hinsdale (21 East First Street), and Highland Park (coming soon)! See you there!
