The Saturday just past was the opening of a new Mecca store In the Brisbane CBD Myer store, they had some fun promotions and giveaways happening so my best friends and I headed Into the city early to pick up some new makeup goodies!
The attention grabber for me with the opening of the new store was that If you spent $65 or more you would be able to spin a barrel full of makeup prizes and gift cards up to $500 and pick one out - need I say more? To qualify for the spin I picked up the Too Faced Love Flush Blush in 'Justify My Love' ($38) which Is a pretty pink/berry colour which I can't wait to rock this summer. It's going to be hard for me to use though as I don't want to destroy the adorable little Imprinted bunnies! I also grabbed the Hourglass lighting powder mini In 'Ambient' ($32) as I haven't tried any of the raved about hourglass powders and thought the mini size would also be great to throw in my handbag. With a total of $70 spent I qualified for a spin and win!
My barrel spin won me a Kit Blending sponge (opened It and threw out the packaging before blogging whoops) and although It wasn't the $500 gift card I was still glad as I am yet to find a decent beauty sponge- hopefully this one Is a winner! And funnily enough my partner also came along to the opening (may have forced him) as he wanted to pick up one of my christmas presents and In doing so he also qualified for a spin of the barrel. He won the Mecca 'To Save Face' mini sunscreen which will come in super handy for the hotter weather coming up.
When purchasing our products my partner and I both signed up to the Mecca beauty loop service and we both received a gift box. Thankfully my boyfriend Isn't Interested In makeup/skincare so I scored double - yay! Inside was a mini Ciate nail polish, a Ren Detox Mud sample and some Too Faced samples. While I was there I also asked for a few foundation samples to try, Including the Urban Decay Naked Skin, Nars Weightless and Too Faced Born This Way all which I'm very excited to try.
Overall we had a great time and I definitely thought It was worth the trip Into the city. Oh and how could I forget, the most exciting part of the day was that they were handing out free lollipops - woohoo! Thanks so much for reading and let me know if there are any beauty products on your current wish list!
