It’s a rainy Friday in Brighton today, and seeing a man standing at my door with a massive box from Mecca Maxima brightened my day instantly.
I was absolutely thrilled to see that Mecca Maxima had decided to send me their new Mecca Max range. I’ve always adored Mecca, and I’m so happy that they are continuing to keep me in the loop with their product launches even without me living in Australia anymore. It really means so much. They’re such an awesome company, and we’ve had many fun times together. I think my meet up with Mecca last year in Melbourne Central has been my highlight!
Mecca Max is a brand new range from Mecca Maxima and it launches on August 1st.
Below is an overview of the range:
The Mecca Max Bring On Bright Illuminating Primer
The Mecca Max Auto Matte Lip Mattifyer
The Mecca Max City Slicker Tinted Oil
The Mecca Max Gloss Boss Lip Gloss
I absolutely love the product name! Swatching this lip gloss showed that it’s very light and natural.
The Mecca Max Pout Pop Lipstick in Freedom Fighter (red) and Party Police (nude)
I found the packaging design of this lipstick incredibly interesting. I think Mecca have done an amazing job with their packaging for this range – it’s new, it’s exciting, and I’ve not seen anything like it. I love the pop-out mechanism for the lipsticks – very cute. The lipsticks swatched super creamy and light onto my skin.
The Mecca Max A-Lipster Liquid Lipstick in Skinny Latte (brown) & Killer Instinct (pink)
Upon removing these liquid lipsticks from their boxes, I was surprised by their packaging. I don’t believe I own any liquid lipsticks that have completely opaque packaging, as it can make it hard to know what colour it is on first glance. Luckily however, the name of the lipsticks as well as the colour is highlighted on the top of the packaging, which I actually think is incredibly smart for those who store their lipsticks upright, and can clearly see what colour it is from the top view.
I also love the name A-Lipster for this range.
The Mecca Max Eye Max Power Couple Mascara
This mascara has me all kinds of excited. As soon as I noticed there was a wand on each end, for their different purposes, I instantly fell in love. No more having to use 2 different mascaras for my top and bottom lashes? Yes please!
The Mecca Max Shimmer Shot Highlighting Wand in Pearl
Like so many of the other products – I don’t have anything like this. I’m very excited to see how the wand works for my face.
The Mecca Max Beauty Bullet Blender Sphere
The Mecca Max Banana Bake Filter Powder
Okay. Anyone who knows me well, knows that discovering a banana powder product was in the range made me so happy. I use banana powders religiously, and as I’ve recently run out of my much-loved Nars Beach Pressed Powder, I’m very excited to try this one out!
The Mecca Max Skin Halo Diamond Dust
The Mecca Max Chic Cheek Blush
The Mecca Max Sunlit Skin Bronzer
The Mecca Max Eyephoria Vivid Impact Eye Palette
I have a confession to make. I admit it, I judged this palette before I swatched it. I had my doubts about the pigmentation of this palette, as the colours looked basic upon first glance.
And then I swatched it…
I was speechless. Mecca just did that.
These eyeshadows are so pigmented and so beautiful, and I am in absolute shock of how much it exceeded my expectations.
As soon as I swatched the first white shade on the left of the palette, I knew I was in for a good time. I am already so obsessed with this palette, and I can’t wait to create a fun look with these eyeshadows.
