Mecca's Q1 Beauty Loop Box sets the tone beautifully for the year ahead
I am always chuffed at the thought of getting to try new products that I wouldn't pick up otherwise. Mecca's Beauty boxes are a great way to get a taste of the different brands and get your hands on their cult and no so cult products. You get to try whatever is new at Mecca and make up your mind whether to repurchase anything without burning a hole in your pocket at the get go.
2016 Q1 L3 box is a great mix of make-up bits, skincare bits and a hybrid.
By Terry Liftessence Trio (Global Serum, Daily Cream, Eye Contour Sachets) – Super excited to see this as it is the latest in skincare and By terry does her skincare beautifully. Though single sample is not enough to see any visible result but is enough to gives you a feel of the product just so that you know whether you’d be buying a full size or not. Love all the three products and will start with the buying a full size serum.
NARS Blush in Orgasm – This is their “through the roof” best-selling blush. Well I am going to admit it that the shimmer in it deterred me when I tried it a couple of years back and I never got around to buying it so when I saw it in the beauty box, I was kind of relieved that I am no longer on the “Not tried NARS Orgasm!" boat. Yes I have tried it now and although I am not crazy about it this time either, I am going to use every bit of it till it lasts.
Chantecaille Brilliant Gloss in Love – Lip Glosses and I have a bit of a delicate relation so when I saw this one, I wasn’t uber excited. Anything sticky and I just won’t use it but this one has a nice slip to it and isn't tacky. The gloss comes in other shades which I believe would be more flattering on me and I am glad I got to try this as I usually wouldn't buy it myself.
Ren Satin Perfection BB Cream – This one is a hybrid of make-up and skincare. The cream has a great texture and leaves the skin feeling super smooth; unfortunately it was the colour that let it down for me. It’s not my shade and makes me look ghost-like. As this this one doesn't come in a medium shade so this one is a pass for me.
