June is a good month for LA beauty buffs. Although slated to open in April, D.C.-bred retailer Bluemercury is unveiling its 62nd store on Saturday, June 6th in Santa Monica. As a reader notes, it'll be the Macy's-backed chain's second go in the City of Angels after first landing in Westfield Century City back in 2007.
Located (coincidentally?) in antiques shop Blue House's former space, the beauty boutique will offer high-end cosmetics and skincare products from cult-favorite brands like Bobbie Brown, Trish McEvoy, NARS, Laura Mercier, La Mer, and more. In addition to offering Bluemercury's signature perks—like tons of samples and invite-only discount events—the store will house a full-service spa with two treatment rooms, oxygen facials, microdermabrasion, glycolic peels, waxing services, and more.
