There are Mecca outlets in Rundle Mall, City Cross and Burnside Village but Mecca Maxima is bigger and better and there is one in Marion Shopping Centre. Mecca Maxima brings you the hottest beauty products from around the world in a glamorous, high-end beauty destination.

Mecca was created by Jo Horgan and was a huge success! Mrs Horgan is now a winner of the Beauty category at the prestigious InStyle Women of Style Awards and landed on the WWD Beauty Inc's '25 Most Innovative Beauty Executives' list. Her goal was to bring global beauty home for Australian women to enjoy, including makeup, skincare and fragrance.

This outlet opened in October and stocks more than 100 beauty brands including Too Faced , Urban Decay, Hour Glass , Smashbox, Nars and Lancome. This outlet also offers beauty services from trained beauty professionals. These include makeup applications, one on one beauty tutorials for you to learn all the tips and tricks, colour matching, contour classes and events for customers to get up close and personal with some of the worlds leading makeup artists.

Some of the amazing brands they now stock we previously could not get in Adelaide prior. I had to buy online without trying or seeing if the colour was right and yes, had to pay postage too. Finally, I can just head to Marion and I can try before I buy! It's a beauty junkie's heaven with testers of most products and plenty of amazing displays to look through.

I would need to be earning a lot more money than I am now to own more of this sort of makeup, but I have tried a few and here are my top picks

Foundation- MAC Cosmetics Studio Fix Fluid SPF 15 $50.00 - colour match in store.
This foundation is amazing for every day and very build-able for those full coverage full-on makeup looks.

Bronzer- Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Medium/Deep Matte Bronzer $44.00
I have used up nearly three of these things. I love them! I have this bronzer in both shades and use it everyday for a natural, bronzed look.

Powder- MAC Cosmetics Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation $50.00
My everyday make-up look consists of a BB Cream and this powder foundation on top. It gives a flawless finish without looking like you are wearing anything on your skin.

Eye Shadow-Too Faced Chocolate Bar Eye Shadow Palette $70.00 You could achieve any look with these shadows. They are fantastic buildable colours and smell like chocolate!

Mascara- Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara $33.00 -
This makes my lashes look so long and full. I have not been able to find a mascara as good as this one. Now onto my third one, I think I will always keep repurchasing.

Lipliner- MAC Cosmetics Lip Pencil $30.00
My favourite colours are Strip Down and Spice.

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics Lipstick $36.00
My favourite colours Modesty - Muted neutral pink, Half N Half - Creamy Pink and Creme Cup - Light blue pink

If your anything like me, you will walk out with a sparkly hand from all your eyeshadow swatches and probably a few products, but all the makeup, skincare and fragrances are amazing quality and sure to last a long time.
