What we've learned today is that D.C. Bluemercury shoppers really, really want to look like Brigitte Bardot. This holiday season, Marla Malcolm Beck, the D.C.-based founder of Bluemercury, collaborated with Trish McEvoy to create a makeup planner inspired by the French actress's classic smoky eyes and nude lips, and the result is almost sold out at all Bluemercury shops in the area. The pink quilted case contains Beck's Trish McEvoy favorites and everything required for an insta-Bardot look, like High Volume mascara, eye shadow, aubergine gel liner, nude lip gloss, and a nude pencil. The $165 set includes 12 products and is valued at $292.
It's totally sold out online and in D.C. stores, so if you want one or want to gift one, here's where to go: the Bethesda Row location at 7105 Bethesda Lane has one set available, the Bethesda location at 10231 Old Georgetown Road has four in store, the Alexandria Bluemercury at 600 King Street has six left, and the Clarendon location at 2855 Clarendon Boulevard has five left.
