For someone who didn’t drool over the Modern Renaissance as much as every other beauty blogger out there, it may come as a surprise that I picked up the Soft Glam palette while in Sephora the other week.
I’ve tried and loved Mario Badescu Rosewater and Green Tea facial sprays, so when Mecca Maxima released the third installment, I was one of the first in store to pick up the Lavender spray!
Stila dedicated a shade to Aussie makeup lovers everywhere when they created Beauty Junkie (aptly named after the term “Mecca Beauty Junkie”). This shade was inspired by Mecca Maxima’s signature pink branding, and suits the makeup retailer’s aesthetic.
For all the exciting new launches at Meccland, there were others that bored me. Here are the items I’m not going to buy once launched online and in stores at Mecca Maxima!
Too Faced Life’s a Festival collection
The unicorn trend is so early-2017 and is starting to feel very childish. I love a bit of cutesy packaging from time to time, but this collection crosses a line. It’s a no from me. And the same goes for the Tarte mermaid collection launching at Sephora Australia soon. Can we jump off the mythical-creature-inspired makeup bandwagon? Please?
After trying (and loving!) Stila’s Shimmer and Glow in the shade Freedom, I decided I wanted to add another to my collection – something more neutral, but also able to be paired with my glitter and glows – enter Boheme.
I had a serious case of FOMO (fear of missing out) with this eyeshadow palette. After being out of stock for over two months, Colourpop announced they would have one final restock of the entire Karrueche x Colourpop collection. It didn’t take me long to decide I wanted this in my collection, and less than 24 hours after their restock, it had sold out.
I’m never one to miss out on a bargain, particularly when it comes to makeup. Catch often has amazing deals on drugstore to high end makeup, and last week I saw they’d released a range of Becca products that were up to 45% off their retail value. The Becca Sunlit Bronzers were selling for $35 each, so I grabbed Bali Sands, the lightest shade in the range.
When I saw Too Faced was coming out with a chocolate gold collection, specifically the eyeshadow palette, I knew I had to grab it! I love my Bon Bons palette, and after hearing many good things about the item, I was counting down the days until it landed in Australia at Mecca Maxima.
