Mecca Maxima Haul!




Hi guys! Today I have a Mecca Maxima Haul for you. A bit of background; up until October last year, Adelaide didn't have a Mecca Maxima (and we still don't have a Sephora!). In the past I've bought some bits and pieces from Mecca Cosmetica in the city, but their range is very limited. I've also made a point of hauling on every Sydney or Melbourne trip I make. So I was very excited when Adelaide got its very first Mecca Maxima, located right near me at Westfield Marion, no less! But then something very strange started happening and I just had no desire to visit the store or purchase anything beauty-related. I got totally overwhelmed with the amount of makeup and skincare I owned and became focussed on using up my beauty stash. I did a Project Pan at the end of last year and have another one planned starting next month, and put together a Sample Challenge, which I'm currently doing.

On the weekend, however, I finally got excited enough to visit, four months after the store opened! Hubby had taken Mr 10 to see a movie in Gold Class at EVENT Cinemas, and I had no time constraints or pressure to hurry, so it really was the perfect time to check out the Mecca goodness. Here's what I hauled!




Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette
Here's how out of the (Beauty) Loop (haha, sweet pun) I am; I went into Mecca Maxima hoping to get the Huda Beauty Desert Dusk palette, not realising that brand is stocked at Sephora. So then I was all like 'I'm getting a palette today, damn it!'. I was eyeing off the new metallic Too Faced Chocolate Gold palette, which did swatch beautifully, but I started questioning how much wear I'd get out of it on a day to day basis. Which drew me to the pretty Sweet Peach palette. I gave into temptation and bought it! Guys, tell me what you think of this palette below, I know it's been out for a while and I'm keen to get your thoughts!



Mecca Max Pout Pop Lipstick in Mean Girl
I'm such a huge fan of nude lipsticks and after swatching a few different ones, including a similar shade with a sheer finish from the Mecca Max range, I settled on this gorgeous Mean Girl shade with a high-def finish. This is right up my alley and was only $20, so even though it's not a trendy brand, I'm hoping the quality is good and I'll get a lot of use  out of it.




Mario Badescu Facial Spray with Aloe, Cucumber and Green Tea
I've been wanting to try this facial spray for quite a while, because I love my Mario Badescu Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs and Rosewater. So now I have the pink one and the green one! I love that these little sprays are only $9 each, and in fact my Rosewater one has lasted me forever. Hopefully I like this calming scent just as much!



Kitsch Hair Ties
I'd been wanting to get hair ties like this for ages, so when I saw them for $12 at the Check-Out Aisle Of Doom (lol) I of course picked them up. I wear my hair up a lot, so as long as these pretty, sparkly ties actually work and are comfortable to wear, I should be good to go.
