Once again I can start by saying, long time, no blog post! Life has been crazy lately. I have finally moved houses (all my makeup is in boxes waiting to be neatly organised into its new home) and I am finally on holidays from work. So I am hoping that I can get back into the swing of things over the next couple of weeks. Now, enough personal chat, let’s get into some makeup!!
Earlier this week, Mecca announced the arrival of some new products on their Instagram. One of which is from their own brand, Mecca Max! The first pictures I saw of the new Beauty Queen Eyeshadow Palette had me hooked and the fact that it is a limited edition product meant I needed it then and there. So I raced to my local Mecca store the day after its arrival and picked one up! So today’s blog post is going to be all about my first impressions of the Mecca Max Beauty Queen Eyeshadow Palette!
Let’s break the palette down a little bit. The Mecca website describes this palette as “the prettiest palette you ever did see – fit for a Beauty Queen! 15 Shimmering pigments for eye and face for a spotlight-savvy glow.” If that doesn’t make you want to rush out and grab one, then maybe the $38 price tag will do it for you!
Firstly, the packaging. I love it! It is simple, yet stunning and feels really sturdy which is super important. It comes with a ginormous mirror which takes up the other side of the palette which is a definite added bonus.
Next, the texture and pigment. To be honest, I wasn’t sure about the texture when I first went in for a finger swatch. It seemed rough, but buttery at the same time. But I found that the more I went in, the more I liked the texture. As for pigmentation, it’s a yes from me! As you can see from the swatches, each and every shade in this palette shows up beautifully on the skin. Something to note, however, is that some of the shades swatch very differently to the way they look in the pan, but that is something I can look past as I love them either way.
Final thoughts – go and get it right now before you miss out!! Not only is this palette beautiful to look at, it is also super pigmented, gives you a lot to play with, can be used on the eyes and on the face and has 15 gorgeous shimmery shades for only $38!! You won’t be disappointed.
