Mecca Beauty Loop Box: Level 1




Hi guys! It's Mecca Beauty Loop box time again, and after thinking I'd endured a fairly long, boring period of joyless unqualification, I was astounded to discover I'd actually received the previous box (and blogged about it), I just had zero memory of it! I have bought a few things from Mecca Maxima recently, and I think my impulsive Urban Decay Born To Run palette purchase must have kept me in the realm of qualification. I performed this sneaky purchase in the school holidays, whilst with my 10 year old son and let's just say, after the initial excitement of swatching every motherloving eyeshadow shade in Mecca onto his body had worn off, he was not a very fun shopping companion. Nor did he provide me with any decent or useful advice re proposed makeup purchases. Honestly I thought he could have tried harder. Hahaahaaaa. So I was forced to rely on my life mantra: 'when in doubt, buy the makeup'. Anyhoo, here's what's in my Beauty Election Edit Level 1 Loop Box!



Josie Maran 100% Pure Argan Oil
Honestly, I just don't have it in me to get excited about a tiny 1ml sachet of argan oil. I feel like they include Josie Maran argan oil in nearly every BL box? I know I've received this product before in Beauty Loop boxes, albeit in slightly bigger sizes. I will probably use this on the ends of my hair or perhaps to moisturise my cuticles.

REN Perfect Canvas Skin Enhancing Priming Serum
Funny story. I opened my BL box in a city food court to check out the contents, lifted this sample out and the glass vial fell to the floor and smashed! So I did what any sensible person would do and rubbed the remaining product into my arm (along with miniature shards of glass probably) to test what I could. It actually felt really nice, but who knows how this actually performs as a priming serum because mine is GONE FOREVER!

Too Faced Hangover 3-In-1 Replenishing Primer & Setting Spray
This is a multitasking mist designed to both prime the skin and set your makeup, and I'm keen to see how I go with it. It contains coconut water so it smells tropical and amazing. This is the one I should have inspected as it's in a plastic tube, not a smashy glass one!

NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Let's Go Crazy
The pamphlet tells us this is a cult favourite. So if I ever join the Church of Scientology, I will fit right in with all my fellow NARS Let's Go Crazy wearing cult friends. LOL. But seriously, this is hands down the most exciting box inclusion for me. It's a decent sized sample (1.8g) and the colour is bold, fun and pretty. I don't own much NARS makeup either, so it's a double win for me! Fun Fact: when you put the lid back on this pencil, it 'farts' its way off again when the air gets trapped! Hehe.

  12. I love the colour of the NARS lip pencil! But I have to agree with you, the sachets are disappointing and I think loyal customers would appreciate it if they stopped giving them out.

  16. I got my first ever Beauty Loop box on Tuesday & I was so damn excited! Like you, I'm Level 1, but instead of the Josie Maran Argan Oil I got a Glamglow Supermud mask sachet (or one of those bloody Glamglow masks in sachet form). I won't be using it or the NARS lip pencil (cute colour, but I have enough lipsticks to last me for a while), so I'm passing them on.

    So sad you broke the REN serum! I'll have to let you know how I go with it as it was the 1 item I got excited about.
