#MeccaMax has landed!

Mecca Maxima has always been well known as the one stop shop for all your beauty needs. Whether your a Makeup Artist, or a beauty lover you are bound to walk out the door with a happy heart, and most probably a slightly lighter wallet!(oops)

With a line up of some of the world’s best beauty brands, there’s some tough competition on the shelves and it’s about to get even tougher. On August the 1st Mecca Maxima will launch their absolutely stunning, and affordable NEW beauty brand that goes by the name of Mecca Max!

I was lucky enough to be able to try out a few products, from this range before the launch date & I am more than blown away. From the beautiful packaging, to the performance of the products themselves,and then the added bonus of the super appealing price tags, it’s hard to find any faults.

This range starts at $5 NZD and ranges to $45 NZD with 206 products in tow. That’s right 206!!! Having been 3 years in the making, it really is go big or go home right! From skin, to lips, to nails, complexion, beauty tools and lashes Mecca Max will have you more than just covered.
