One excursion to Mecca Maxima and your beauty kit will never be the same again.
So once you step inside, where to begin? Allow us to intro you to the six cult products that are hands-down heroic and worthy of the hype.
1. Drunk Elephant Lala Retro Whipped Cream
This curiously named skincare brand was so christened after its hero ingredient – marula oil derived from the marula fruit in Africa – which is said to send elephants into a drunk-like state when the fruit ferments in their stomachs.
Spoiler: Marula oil is also great for replenishing moisture and bestowing a goddess-level glow. The Lala Whipped Cream is a rich moisturiser that intensely hydrates skin (importantly: non-greasy) and helps fights signs of ageing. It was Mecca’s customer-voted Best Moisturiser in 2018.

2. NARS Blush in Orgasm
Makeup artists all around the world list NARS Blush in Orgasm as their go-to blush. Perhaps because its gold-flecked pinky peach hue is flattering for any complexion, delivering that flushed but natural look without fail.
NARS was founded by iconic French makeup artist François Nars whose trademark glowing skin and love of colour is celebrated throughout his entire makeup – and skincare – collection. Click here to shop >
3. Mecca Cosmetica To Save Face SPF 30+
The best thing about the Mecca Cosmetica range is it seems to get what Aussies need – perfectly evidenced by this peerless sunscreen. To Save Face SPF 30+ has been a No.1 seller since its launch.
The non-whitening and non-oily formula feels totally weightless, but works overtime to protect your precious skin. The hydrating matte finish makes it a pleasure to wear daily and it acts as a worthy makeup base, too. Click here to shop >
4. Frank Body Original Coffee Scrub
An Australian brand you’ll soon be proud of is Frank Body. The line of cheeky natured, caffeine-infused body scrubs has made it an Instagram sensation. And the products are well deserving of kudos.
The product that started it all – the Original Coffee Scrub – remains at the heart of the brand, and is just what you need to get glowing, smooth skin all over. Bonus: Frank Body uses only natural and naturally-derived ingredients, and all formulas are cruelty-free. Click here to shop >
5. Urban Decay Naked Reloaded Palette
Urban Decay is a makeup brand with edge. Funnily enough, it’s the pared-back neutral eyeshadow palette that’s garnered the most buzz. Think 12 shades of flattering eyeshadows, which form the perfect basis for any makeup look. If you only own one palette, make it this one. Click here to shop >
6. Tatcha The Water Cream
The Japanese are known for their meticulous attention to detail, and this extends to their skincare routines. Tatcha is inspired by a 200-year-old beauty manuscript that details the principles and traditions of geishas and their beauty routines.
The product with the biggest following is The Water Cream. It’s highly sought after and often sells out around the world. Think of it as a tall drink of water for dry and dehydrated skin. The luxe yet lightweight cream also meets the needs of oily and acne-prone skin. It’s an all-rounder for every skin type. Click here to shop >
