More changes at Blushington. Following its termination of brow and lash tinting services due to safety issues, the one-stop beauty shop has now announced that come next month, they'll be raising the price on one of its most popular services.
"As we say here at Blushington, feeling pretty is priceless...but every now and then we need to adjust our prices to continue to provide you with outstanding artistry, gorgeous makeup, and the finest products," founder and CEO Stephi Maron explains in the brand's newsletter. "Beginning March 1, 2016, the price for a full-face makeup application in California and Texas will be $55 and NYC will be $65."
That's $10 more than the usual $45 fans have been shelling out in Cali, and a whopping $20 more for our friends on the East Coast. Although Maron adds that "this was not an easy decision" and that she's committed to keeping services "top notch, affordable and fun," we can't help but feel our wallets already burning from the adjustment.
