Mecca Max has officially done it again! Earlier last month Mecca announced the arrival of a new Queen palette on their Instagram. If you have been following my blog for a while then you may have seen my post on the Mecca Max Beauty Queen Palette, and their new palette is it’s not so distant relative, Desert Queen! As soon as I saw the first images, and stories from influencers receiving this palette in the mail, I knew I had to race out and get one. So that’s exactly what I did. Today’s post is going to be all about my first impressions of the new Mecca Max Desert Queen Eye and Face Palette!
Let’s break the palette down a little bit. Mecca describes this palette as…
Desert nights just got dreamier with a royal touch of gilded ruby and rich sunset tones! This super pretty palette is a matte, marbled and metallic must-have full of lavishly luxe summer-inspired shades. A treasure chest of fifteen blendable and buildable high-impact pigments. This oversized palette is flush with richly ranged tones. Go from a glam-packed gold gaze to vivacious violet vibes or a sizzling hot-sands stare with this bejewelled BFF. Claim that crown!
If that doesn’t grab your attention, then maybe the super affordable price point of $38 for 15 amazing pans will do it for you! It is also 100% vegan and cruelty-free.
Firstly, let’s talk about the packaging. I love it! It is super similar to the original Beauty Queen palette, except this one if orange instead of pink. It is simple, yet stunning and feels really sturdy. It comes with a huge mirror also, so that is a big bonus in my eyes.
The texture and pigment are the exact same as the original Beauty Queen palette also. It is rough to the touch but also extremely buttery and highly pigmented. This palette is slightly different as it contains a few matte shades. The matte shades are also super pigmented and will work well on the eyes with the texture they have. Once again, the marbled shades are a nice surprise once swatched as it is hard to picture how the different coloured marble will mix together.
Final thoughts – Mecca Max is killing the game once again! If you haven’t had a chance to swatch or see this palette in person, I would highly recommend you run into your closest Mecca store and bask in its beauty. I can’t wait to play around with this palette and create some amazing looks to share with you guys.
