Saturday Morning Football Face

Posted by Marla Malcolm Beck on

I woke up to 40 degree weather and was trying to decide what to do for my skin before I went to my 7 year old son's flag football game. There is nothing cuter than 6 seven year olds throwing footballs and trying to score touchdowns. And there is almost nothing worse for your skin than a wide open field with wind whipping across your face. So I decided to layer M-61 Hydraboost Serum ($78) – full of water-binding vitamin B5 and moisturizing hyaluronic acid – under RéVive’s incredibly rich Intensité Créme Lustre Day SPF 30 ($385). It comes in a...

The Lipstick Black Hole!

Posted by Marla Malcolm Beck on

Those of you that know me know that I always travel with a Bluemercury tote. As I am headed to Boston tomorrow morning and my bag was feeling quite heavy I decided to go through and clean it out. These are some of my favorite colors - if they weren't, why would they be traveling with me! 6 lipsticks, 6 lip glosses and 5 lip pencils, I think that works out to 200 different looks! Who needs to travel with any other accessory? LipsticksTrish McEvoy Lip Color ($28) in Barely Nude & Pink Nude NARS Sheer Lipstick ($26) in Fast...

Instant Sleep

Posted by Marla Malcolm Beck on

We were on our way out to a cocktail party the other night and my husband looked at me and said - you look tired. Of course I do - I have 3 kids, a growing and fun company, a frog, a guinea pig and of course, a husband! I ran up to my bathroom and grabbed Trish's Instant Eye Lift ($38). This little package has a miracle pinky-glowy cream that you just dab under your eyes with your fingers after all of your makeup is on. It draws natural light to your under-eye area. The result is instant sleep!...

The New Trish Fall Lip

Posted by Marla Malcolm Beck on

Trish and her team just sent me all of the new creamy, smooth Beauty Booster Lip and Cheek Color pencils ($30) – they are so easy to use and to pop in your purse.My favorite is Perfect Plum, an all day neutral. But I also really love Perfect Rose and Perfect Pink. The red doesn’t work on me – but I know many bluemercury clients will love it. Also – her new lip pencils are so universal they go with all of these and the thousand lipsticks I already own. It’s all about lips!

Happy Birthday Bluemercury: 15 Year Classics

Posted by Marla Malcolm Beck on

I can't believe Bluemercury's first store was opened 15 years ago! A huge thank you to the brands we have carried for the full 15 years: Acqua di Parma - my all time favorite Colonia Assoluta fragrance was created in the 1930's. A light citrus - you feel like you are permanently in Italy. Bliss - Marcia Kilgore created Bliss years ago and we LOVED working with her. The Lemon & Sage Body Butter has been a permanent all time favorite for many years! Darphin - who can beat their Intral line of sensitive skin products - the Intral Toner...

Back to School Skin Routine: Fix the Summer Spots

Posted by Marla Malcolm Beck on

I admit — I spent too much time in the sun this summer. On the beach, playing tennis, bike riding — who can resist? Because I am fair, I end up with new freckles and sun spots that I lament every September. I immediately amp up my vitamin C, glycolic acid, and hydration to start to fix it.At night, I use M-61 JetGlow Serum, a powerful dose of glycolic acid and peptides to smooth and firm.I then follow with La Mer's Lifting and Firming Mask that I leave on all night.Then, in the morning, I use M-61 Vitablast C —...
