Continuing on with birthday gifts/rewards from companies, Mecca had a very generous gift waiting for me! As a Beauty Loop Level 3 member, I received two full sized Mecca Cosmetica products – their Lit From Within Primer ($38 AUD) and their All Set Makeup Perfecting Mist ($35 AUD). For over $70 worth of retail value, this was a really special gift to receive from Mecca!
The packaging for both items is like a rubbery-matte material, and the bottles have some weight to them. I found the caps clicked shut nicely, and both pumps worked without any troubles. They didn’t skimp on packaging, which is nice, considering we aren’t looking at drug-store pricing here!
Lit From Within Primer
This primer reminded me of the Glowstarter Mega Illuminating Moisturiser (Nude Glow) from my latest Beauty Loop box, in that it’s got a bit of a glowy finish to it.
The primer blends into the skin quickly and doesn’t feel heavy. I feel this primer would work best on normal, dry or combination skin types because of its finish.
All Set Makeup Perfecting Mist
The more setting sprays I try, the harder it is for me to tell the difference between them. This one from Mecca distributes the right amount of product in a fine mist, and feels nice against the skin, so it ticks all my boxes, but it doesn’t blow me away. I don’t think I’d repurchase for that $35 AUD price point, but I’m glad it was included in the Level 3 set.
To sum up, I think this was a great set to give Level 3 members, and also a sensible choice for a makeup brand! The primer and setting spray should suit most, if not all, skin tones, and should also work for most skin types. If you do have very oily skin, I suggest sampling both first, as they are hydrating and leave the skin with a nice glow.
