A Sneak Peak Into MECCA MAXIMA before opening day!!

Today was such an amazing day as I was lucky enough to be invited to the Media Event for the new MECCA Maxima store opening here in Christchurch TOMORROW!!!! (17.11.16). The store is situated within the ANZ precinct opposite Ballantynes/ the Re-Start Mall, and is absolutely stunning.

When we walked in we were greeted by the friendly faces of the amazing staff, Ellie the store manager and her team of girls,are a wealth of knowledge when it comes to all of the brands now available to us. With the likes of Too Faced, Urban Decay, Drunk Elephant, Ciate + Many more gracing the shelves you are going to want to enter fully prepared and armed with the essentials.. yes I’m talking about your wallet/credit card!

The store itself is best described as a luxury little haven. It’s not massive in size as I thought it may have been, but don’t be fooled as it is definitely packed full of amazing beauty products. From Skincare to Makeup, Fragrance and Nail Polish I am certain Mecca Maxima is about to become your one stop shop.

So what would be some of my MUST HAVES?!

  1. Hourglass Surreal Light Holiday Palette $127 – The Marble look packaging is enough to sell it to you, let alone the stunning products that sit within it. I am a huge fan of the Ambient Powders from Hourglass so this purchase for me is a no brainer. Your skin will look luminous, fresh and flawless with this little babe!



2. Mario Badescu Drying Lotion $26 – This is every girls best friend! A product that’s affordable and speeds up the process of getting rid of pimples …who would’ve thought something like this would actually exist let alone work! I have been using this a few months now and I swear it is going to last me forever.

3. Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzers $47 – I swear by these bronzers, they are a matte silky-smooth formula, and add the perfect amount of warmth to your skin. Available in 3 shades covering light,medium and dark complexions they are a great option for your personal collection or professional kit.


They would be my top 3 picks for adding to your collection as they are such versatile products, but I totally suggest checking out other brands like Drunk Elephant ( their skincare is AMAZING!!), Josie Maran, Soap & Glory and Frank Body! I really could go on for days so I think your better off to pop in and check it out for yourself!

If you can’t get into the physical Christchurch store, don’t stress as Mecca Maxima have you covered. There is now also an online store which showcases all the amazing brands you would find in store, and if you need any help their online support team are just a message away.

So get excited beauty lovers and get ready to get your shop on!!!!
