Mecca 20th Birthday Limited Edition Collection - My Top Ten Picks!

Hey guys!

I am so very sorry for having been away for so long…I know it seems like I keep saying that but having moved to a whole new industry, it’s a little hard catching up, so I’ve been having to devote a fair bit of time to my professional life (seeing as that’s what pays the bills and funds my shopping addiction *wink*). Also, I’m on Instagram every single day, which takes a fair chunk of time. Having said that, I do miss blogging, so I’m resolving to try A LOT HARDER to be more regular with my posts!

Kicking today’s post off with a bang...if you live in Australia, the name Mecca will not be unknown to you, because it's literally a heaven for Australian makeup lovers! Did you know that Mecca have just celebrated their 20th birthday, and as a result, have just released a whole swag of limited edition, exclusive products?! The products in the collection are from a mixture of Australian and international brands, curated exclusively to Mecca, and there are some AMAZING things that I’ve got my eye on! I thought it would be fun to share my top 10 picks from the range, all of which is available to shop online here.

1) Hourglass Cosmetics MECCA20 Ambient Lighting Palette $90

This contains an Ambient Lighting Powder and Bronzer in Luminous Light and Luminous Bronze Light, as well as a special edition blush shade in Mecca Birthday Glow. I absolutely love the Hourglass powders, and when you throw in a limited edition shade, I'm totally sold! More info here.

Keep reading after the jump!

2) Stila MECCA20 Stay All Day liquid lipstick $32

I've got a couple of these, and boy, do they stay PUT. Vitamin E and avocado oil ingredients deliver a creamy, non-drying formula that's comfortable on the lips. This rose hue was created specially to fit the Mecca branding, and I foresee this being a shade that would flatter most skintones. More info here. Note: this is also available in a bundle set for $67. 

3) MECCA Cosmetica MECCA20 Enlightened Lit from Within Powder $48

I actually already have this powder, and it's a beautiful golden glow that flatters all skintones. This has been re-released in special edition (on-trend) rose gold packaging, and would be a must for any rose gold/highlighter loving makeup-lover! More info here

4) Bobbi Brown MECCA20 Crushed Lip Colour $46

Bobbi Brown have long been one of my favourite luxury brands, and their products never disappoint! The crushed lip colours are meant to be comfortable to wear, resulting in a soft, stain-like finish. There are 20 shades in this limited edition collection so I'm sure there will something to cater to everyone! More info here.

5) Mario Badescu MECCA20 The Radiant Trio $57

This skincare trio pack consists of the Glycolic Foaming Cleanser, Facial Spray With Aloe, Herbs and Rosewater and the Rose Hips Mask. I already own several of his products but I'd love to try more. The Facial Spray has been on my wishlist for a while, so this seems like a great way to pick it up and try a few more bits in the process! More info here.

6) GlamGlow MECCA20 Mini Mask and Moisturiser Trio $57

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE anything Glamglow, and have quite the collection, but I'm always looking for more options to add to my stash! The GlamGlow masks are a little expensive, but totally worth it...the minis in particular are great value because they are a fraction of what you'd pay for a full sized treatment, yet will still last a fair while. This contains my favourite ever mask, the YouthMud TingleExfoliate, plus the SuperMud Clearing Treatment and GlowStarter Mega Illuminating Moisturiser. More info here.

7) NARS MECCA20 Audacious Lip Collection $234

I adore the formula of the Audacious lipsticks, they are so creamy and comfortable on the lips. In a dream world, I'd be all over this set because the shades are simply stunning and right up my alley...but since I have to be a responsible adult and pay my bills, I'll probably settle for buying one (or two) of the shades individually.

8) MECCA Cosmetica MECCA20 Lip De-Luscious $30

I've long been lusting after these lip treatments because they have such a good reputation...and when better to pick one up than in a limited edition colour? More info here.

9) Clinique MECCA20 Best of Clinique Set $40

I work regularly with Clinique and have been fortunate enough to try a fair bit of their skincare and makeup, which I love! The skincare is always so effective, while the makeup is fun, vibrant and pigmented. This set is curated with several of the Clinique bestsellers, including the Dramatically Different Moisturising Lotion+, Pep-Start 2-in-1 Exfoliating Cleanser, Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm and Pop Matte Lip Colour & Primer. It's the perfect set to travel with, so you really can't get much better! More info here.

10) FRANK Body MECCA20 Birthday Suit Coffee Scrub $21.95

I love the Frank coffee scrub because it smells really good and exfoliates beautifully without abrading the skin. I always feel invigorated after using it, and I love that this limited edition scent smells like vanilla birthday cake! More info here.

There you have it, lovelies, my top ten picks from the collection! How awesome is it that so many brands have participated in curating special items/sets that are exclusively available at Mecca?! There are a total of 48 items in this collection, so head on over and take a look. Tell me which ones appeal to you, I'd love to know what you think!

Much love,
MM.

  1. Great picks! I loved Mario Badescu skin products and I'm so proud that STILA has gone cruelty free recently. Love the addition of nourishing oils in their liquid lipsticks too :)

  4. I'm considering getting the NARS MECCA20 Mini Velvet Lip Glide Set which is just $82, I love minis as I have so much makeup and never use up a whole product and the colours are my thing, nice and bright.

    1. Another great pick! I couldn't agree more with you ...I was very tempted by it, but my only problem is that I don't reach for glosses as often!

  5. It sounds really great birthday edition. I don't have any Mecca store or Hourglass in my country but I really want to get this palette so good :)
