Mecca Beauty Election Beauty Loop Sample Box

I've finally started to take advantage of the generous Mecca Beauty Loop rewards program, which is free to join and gives you access to some lovely samples once you hit the first tier (for which you must have spent $300-$599 in store within the year) After receiving my first sample box and posting about it here, I was surprised to receive another email offering a special edition 'beauty election' sample box - I did vote in the beauty election, and must say it was a lot more fun than the Australian political election! I made it a mission one Sunday with Mister to detour to the shopping centre nearest me that has a Mecca Maxima store and nab myself one of the boxes - and it was definitely worth the detour! Each store had a different range of products in the sample box as chosen by the staff members, and my store nailed it!

Seriously, a mini Too Faced Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick!? I felt so lucky when I opened my box to see such a neat miniature of it, I've never tried a lip product from Too Faced before despite owning many of their palettes, and the shade received was Chihuahua, a very 'me' colour and one that I am excited to try! The other products in the box were from really interesting brands too...
Yet again my sample box contained a product from Josie Maran, which I'm very pleased about as I'm enjoying trying out such a popular brand. This Whipped Argan Oil Face Butter sounds perfect for this cold snap we are having here in Melbourne, I am looking forward to trying out the whipped consistency on my face!
I've tried some lip products from Korres but that is as far as I've gone with the brand, but I'm quite obsessed with rose products at the moment so this couldn't have arrived at a better time. The Wild Rose Brightening & Line Smoothing Serum will be a nice bedtime treat, and I'm intrigued as to how a serum in sachet is going to work for me.
It seems like Mecca have a few very generous brands who aren't afraid of dishing out samples, claps for that! I once again received a Kate Somerville product from Mecca, after falling in love with the ExfoliKate cleanser in my previous sample box I am very interested to see how this EradiKate To-Go Pre-Treated Swab will go - will it be similar to my Mario Badescu Drying Lotion that I dab on with a cotton bud?! 
Still swooning over this, even if I don't end up loving the formula how wonderful is it to be able to try such an adorable and popular product from Too Faced without dishing out a single dollar?

Are you a member of the Mecca Beauty Loop? If not, you should be!

  1. I used to have a mini of a Too Faced Melted lipstick but unfortunately I wasn't a fan of the formula :/ It's so much fun receiving freebies from retailers you shop a lot at! I always like to look at current Sephora point perks :)

    1. The formula feels quite drying for me? I have been trying a few liquid lipsticks lately so would have to trial it properly before I blame it all on the TF though. I was just so excited at getting to try it out in such cute form! We don't have perks like you do at our Sephora (I don't actually know if we get anything worthwhile there? They are brand new here though) I received some great point perks while on my honeymoon though, was terrific!

  2. The level 1 box looks good! As in, I'm guessing this is the level 1 box? Mine's level 2 and I got a mini NARS Laguna and a bottle of Bumble and Bumble's hair primer thing. I'm actually more excited about the latter. :P Man, I thought I already spent a lot of money at Mecca and I'm only at level 2. Good gracious, how much more do I need to spend to get on Level 3?? :P

    1. Yes this is level 1 :) Oh I am still using my mini Nars Laguna that I received when Mecca Maxima first opened in Melbourne Central - they last so long!! Assuming you received the powder mini? I'm not really up on hair products (I am enjoying Tresemme right now though, their new ranges are great!) so I think the level 1 box suits me even better than your level 2 would!

  3. Ohhh you got a Too Faced lipstick! Lovely! I got a Stila liquid lipstick, the sample sized lipsticks are so cute.

  4. What an awesome box. I've just recently joined the Beauty Loop as we finally got a Mecca Maxima in my town so I'm looking forward to my first one.
