Mecca Beauty Haul - Too Faced, Bubble and Bumble and Mario Badescu


So this blog post is just a bit of fun because I have a Mecca obsession! I am loop level 1 a Beauty Discoverer and chasing Level Two - a Beauty Devotee. Tbh I will make it, I just have to spend another $175 and that is gonna be super easy with my wishlist!  So on Saturday I hit up Mecca and got my makeup done and picked up a few items, here is what I got and my impressions. And yeah, I purchased these items with my own dosh so you bet I was careful! $161 was what I spent, as it was Mecca's 20th Birthday I got some goodies for free such as the Uno card game, stickers and the Mecca Max Kiss And Tell Plumping Lip Mask as a wee thanks. 

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara $35

Am I the only person who hasn't tried Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara? After a recent clear out, I was short on mascara. I wanted an intense black colour and to help create some volume rather than length, I didn't want a glugly brush. So far, and it's been a week but I am in love. It lasts the distance, makes my lashes black as black with curl and when I balled my eyes out it wasnt a mess! 10/10 will buy again. 

Too Faced Born This Way Setting Powder $50

As I write this, I realise I totes forgot to apply it today! Dammit. Too Faced Born This Way Setting Powder is my new fave. This setting powder locks down makeup and delivers a radiant, natural-looking finish WITHOUT highlighting my fine hairs on the sides of my face (Yes! I know) The universal shade is perfect. It is creamy and not too white. Too Faced Born This Way Setting Powder is infused with coconut water and hyaluronic acid providing deep hydration for a smoother, brighter complexion.  What I really like is the fact that is is going to last me FOREVER and it's pretty affordable too! 

Bumble and Bumble All-Style Blow Dry $50

Bumble and bumble is the reason why I spend so much at Mecca Cosmetica and Bumble and Bumble All Style Brow Dry is a holy grail product of mine. A multi-tasking wonder product that protects, nourishes, smoothes and extends the length of your blow-dry. For me the magic is in the ingredients -  Infused with invisible, micro-fine oil-absorbing powders, this product is suitable for healthy, fine and even oil-prone hair. It stops my hair from getting greasy fast and I have been using it for three years now. My only gripe? The 57g Travel size is NEVER in stock! For this girl who travels ALOT, I kinda need it! 

Mario Badescu Drying Lotion, $26

Fun fact, when I was in line to purchase this, three other girls around me had this in their baskets. The Mario Badescu Drying Lotion is a fast acting, effective acne spot treatment.  Made with a blend of calamine and salicylic acid to clear up and soothe unsightly whiteheads overnight. I am in love so much so I have already purchased a second bottle - My boyfriend will love this! 

MECCA MAX Kiss And Tell Plumping Lip Mask, $8

This rosewater-infused jelly lip mask replenishes the skin to help plump and maintain shape for full, kissable lips. The Mecca Max Kiss and Tell Plumping Lip Mask was a freebie but for $8 I will buy it again. The only problem is it is so large and heavy it is kinda hard to keep it on. My lips did feel softer and I did love the smell though, it didn't plump (for me) but it did make them juicy! 

SO! This is my haul? Do you like this post? Shall I keep them up?
