My favourite picks from Mecca Cosmetica

One of the best things about having a Mecca Maxima and a Mecca Cosmetica close by now in Canberra is the access to incredible beauty and skincare brands; but my favourite has to be the Mecca Cosmetica collection!

Mecca Cosmetica’s own signature line is my new favourite for skincare and beauty products that take a natural look to the next level.

They have everything from incredible sunscreens and tinted moisturisers to face masks and rich highlighter pallets.

Some of my personal favourites from the range are:

  • Lit From Within Illuminating Drops:These “ultra-pigmented illuminating drops” brighten the skin beautifully and can be mixed with moisturisers, primer, sunscreen or foundation. You can also apply a little bit directly to your skin to balance skin tone and add a subtle highlight. I love to mix it with my tinted moisturiser on days when I am wearing minimal makeup for an extra boost!
  • Tinted Lip De-luscious SPF25 in Peach and Nude: I love these lip balms so much; the packaging, the subtle but rich colours, and how nourishing they feel! These gorgeous tubs contain vitamin E, Shea butter, pomegranate seed oil and SPF 25 for “beautifully soft, SPF protected lips”. The nude is incredibly natural and the peach gives a lovely hint of colour.
  • In A Good Light SPF30+ Tinted Moisturiser in Fair: This tinted moisturiser is a best seller for good reason! It’s a “tinted moisturising sunscreen that provides broad spectrum protection against UVA and UVB rays in a hydrating, dewy finish cream”. It’s a light formula with a soft tint and a really nice product for those days when you want minimal makeup but a radiant glow.
  • To Save Face Superscreen SPF 50+: This sunscreen is a game changer – it’s incredibly protective and yet feels like a silky and light moisturiser not a sticky thick sunscreen. “This weightless SPF formula acts as the perfect makeup base while preventing premature ageing caused by the damaging effects of the sun.” I love this so much I have a full size and a small size I keep in my purse.
  • Kissable Lips Smoothing Lip Exfoliant: This is fantastic for keeping lips smooth, especially in the cold harsh winter months. It uses refined sugar granules to gently “exfoliate, smooth and soften dry, flaky lips, perfectly prepping them for lipstick and gloss”.

There are so many products I’ve still got to try but I’ve got my eyes on a few especially tempting items – Enlightened Illuminating Body Oil and The Enlightened Trio.
