I recently went into Mecca to check out the new Mecca Max line, as I had some leftover funds on a gift card. If you follow this blog you may know that I purchased the Life Proof Longwear Foundation a few weeks ago and absolutely love it, so I
was itching to try more products from their range. After spending some time at
the stand and testing out some of their products, the City Slicker Tinted Oil
in Rose and the Sunlit Skin Bronzer in Medium made it into my basket. The lip
gloss was planned; the bronzer was an impulse buy which I just could not pass
up. After testing out both products I feel ready to write my review.
The City Slicker Tinted Oil is a beautiful lip gloss that hydrates the lips and keeps them shiny. As the name suggests, it is a lip tint so it gives the lips a light wash of colour. Firstly, the texture is quite runny and wet, so it’s not a thick lip gloss. It coats the lips nicely and does not feel sticky on. Even though the formula is runny, only a small amount is needed to coat the lips sufficiently. The shade Rose is absolutely lovely and is quite bright; brighter than I was expecting. It’s more of an
This gloss comes in three colours and retails for $16 each.
The Sunlit Skin Bronzer is a lovely, shimmery bronzer which warms the face
up subtly. I was initially tossing up between the Light and Medium and decided
to go with the Medium as I prefer wearing bronzer when I self-tan. The texture
is nicely pigmented; one swipe of my brush and it picked up a good amount of product, so I’d suggest going in with a lighter hand to build it up. I found applying it on top of liquid foundation made it a bit difficult to spread, but maybe that’s because I had too much bronzer on the brush. The bronzer did a great job of adding some
warmth to my face; I applied it to my forehead, cheeks and nose and I looked
naturally tanned. There is a shimmer in the powder, however it is extremely fine
and does not show up too obviously on the skin. I am really happy with this bronzer and can’t wait to use it during summer.
Details: The bronzer comes in 3 shades (Light, Medium and Dark) and retails for $22 each.

So far I have absolutely loved all of the products from the Mecca Max range.
I think they are really great value for the price tag and the quality is
comparable to some higher end brands in my opinion.
Have you tried anything from the Mecca Max range? What did you think?
