the glossarie invite bluemercury

i always say that i would write this blog even if no one ever came to read it, because that’s how much i love these products and that’s how badly i want to share them – but you do come! you come, you comment, you email, you share your hits and misses, you ask questions and partake in the obsession that has fueled five years of beauty writing on the web, and for that i will be forever grateful.

i wish that i could give each of you a giant hug, especially the most loyal of you who have been reading since the beginning, but instead, i’m throwing a grand soiree! my way of giving back just a tiny bit of the joy that you have brought to me over these last 969 posts.

if you’re in the dc/md/va area, i would love to see you at the glossarie’s fifth birthday party over memorial day weekend! come sip champagne, nibble a cupcake, and most importantly, get all dolled up for your evening out with a quickie makeover by bluemercury’s amazing brand representatives and makeup artists. i’ll also be treating guests to a deluxe sample stop where you can make your own little swag bag full of my favorite minis from mario badescu, la roche posy, clinique, perricone, kiehl’s, laura mercier, and more.

i chose to partner with bluemercury because they are the beauty authority in the dc area. i love having a national chain of prestige cosmetics boutiques based right here in the district and i’m so lucky that they are opening their doors to host us in a couple of short weeks. the beauty fortress is celebrating FIFTEEN years this year, so suffice to say that they are also in a celebratory mood. if you’re able to join us, please RSVP to the email address on the invite – i hope to see you there!
