Last week I was down at Myer Perth for the opening of the new Mecca counter. The open day promised lots of exciting prizes, including MECCA gift cards, deluxe samples, NARS lipsticks and Stila palettes. I got there at around two pm, and the line was CRAZY long. It was my first time shopping at Mecca, which is a bit embarrassing because I’m always buying makeup and beauty stuff!
The girls at Mecca were so lovely, my favorite part about the whole experience was that they were more than happy to give out samples. I always like testing out foundations before I buy it, but hate asking for samples because some assistants act like the samples are being paid out of their own salary. Or that I’m asking for too much by wanting to try a $60 foundation before I buy it.
Anyway back to Mecca! I was interested in the NARS sheer glow after reading so many rave reviews. I spoke to the assistant for a bit about the foundation, was color matched to the shade Syracuse and decided to go ahead and buy the foundation. I also asked for a sample of the Smashbox foundation and another NARS foundation. I was interested in trying the Too Faced Born This Way too but it hadn’t yet arrived in store.
Unfortunately by the time I waited in the queue and paid, they had run out of prizes which I was super gutted out. I did however get a Beauty Loop box which consisted of the items below:
- Too Faced cocoa powder foundation sample
- Too Faced shadow insurance sample
- Ciate mini nail polish in Party Shoes
- Ren Invisible Pores detox mask sample
Overall, I am super excited with the opening of Mecca in Myer. I pretty much felt like a kid in a candy store in there! This is also my first time trying NARS so I look forward to trying and reviewing the foundation soon 🙂
Until next time
