My current favourites from Mecca.
I seem to always find myself in Mecca whenever I go shopping (oops) and, after picking up some new goodies lately, I thought I would put together a collection of my favourite products, old and new, from Mecca.
A cult product from Nars for a reason, this powder gives the face a warm, natural glow and contour with subtle hints of golden shimmer. I always go back for more of this one!
While we’re on the subject of amazing Nars products, I can’t go past their Matte Lip Pencils. The shade ‘Dragon Girl’ is the perfect bright for summer; a rich medium-dark cool toned red. It has a really smooth and even application that lasts well throughout the day. I’ll use this on it’s own for an easy and quick bright lip or pair it with another lip product.
I don’t know how I didn’t come across Omorovicza earlier. This award-winning cleansing balm cleanses and removes makeup whilst leaving the skin feeling super soft and hydrated. It’s rich in Hungarian Moor Mud, a potent source of calcium and magnesium, to clear congested pores and draw out impurities. This product is particularly great for anyone who has combination or dry skin as it’s enriched with sweet almond oil to leave skin replenished and hydrated.
Further fuelling my love for Omorovicza is the Refining Facial Polisher. This baby contains marine micro-algae and helps to refine texture and exfoliate away dead skin cells. I love the texture of this exfoliant as it works to buff away dead skin without being overly harsh and it leaves my skin silky smooth and refreshed.
Finally, a non-oily, non-whitening sunscreen that feels great on the skin whilst protecting against the damaging and ageing effects of the sun. It protects against UVA & UVB rays with four hours of water-resistance. I haven’t tried the face version of this (To Save Face) but I might have to grab that one next time I’m in Mecca!
My MAC Blacktrack was drying out a bit so I’ve been using this eye liner in place of my usual go-to. This definitely has more pigmentation than my MAC Fluidline and it’s just as easy to use. The formula is waterproof and doesn’t smudge throughout the day. The product is dispensed through a cushion-sponge which is great because it stops you from picking up too much product. It’s very easy to work with and you can build up the intensity of colour.
This highlighter delivers a beautiful glow to the skin in an instant. Easily blendable and enriched with coconut oil for hydration, this luminiser has a satin-pearl finish which gives the skin a subtle sheen. I use this on the cheekbones, cupids bow and brow bone for dewy, glowing skin.
I grabbed this limited edition Blush Balm in the shade Posy Passion, a beautiful sheer fuchsia. I love cream blushes because they look so natural when used right. This lightweight balm gives a lovely touch of buildable colour to the cheeks that blends in effortlessly.
