There is nothing like ordering an item online and having a arrive days later to your desk. But there are also sometimes when you just need something now! It is with excitement that I share that just in time for my birthday Mecca Maxima is opening its doors in Auckland. Less than 1km away from my apartment might I add.
When I lived in Sydney (For three months haha) Mecca Maxima was my go to. A place where I could get brands such as Urban Decay, Too Faced, and Mario Badescu. Well-acquainted favorites included NARS, By Terry, Stila, Hourglass, and GlamGlow. More importantly, it was where I met and fell in love with haircare brand Bumble and Bumble.
For a while, I could only get it on trips to Sydney! Now I am ordering it online from Mecca Beauty – see my latest order above that arrived today. Next month it will be in store at Auckland’s first Mecca Maxima.
MECCA opens its first one-stop-beauty-shop, Mecca Maxima Auckland, at 191 Queen Street on Thursday 3 August. Filled with over 50 of the best global beauty brands, the 263 square metre beauty emporium will be New Zealand’s biggest store yet, offering all the latest lust-have products and trends in makeup, skin, hair and fragrance.
Going in store to Mecca Maxima Auckland will allow me to see the colours of the eyeshadow palettes, to smell the scents and to be colour matched for Too Faced Foundation is pretty special and something I am looking forward to.
If you want to be the first to check it out I know that they have celebrations happening all day from 9pm, including the iconic MECCA-mazing Envelope Wall that sees shoppers who spend $90 or more reveal a beauty surprise.
If it is anything like the Mecca Maxima Wellington store than I am excited for Mecca Maxima Auckland to open.
