Brisbane city Haul- Mecca Maxima-

I was very blessed to be celebrating my 5th wedding anniversary over the weekend, and hubby and I managed to get the weekend to ourselves. We spent the time in the city shopping eating and enjoying each others company uninterrupted. 
The awesome free gift 
During some much needed retail therapy I stumbled in the newly revamped Mecca Maxima. I was in beauty bloggers heaven, I was a bit over whelmed and only picked up a few things. I had a voucher Mecca was offering on there Facebook page for a free set of Kit Nail strips ready to go. I picked up another set of the Kit nail strips in Pink Parade after seeing them on Gemma Elaine's nails recently and OMG they looked HOT so I had to have them. 
I have been lusting after a few Nars blushes for a while and picked up Angelika this time, it is so pretty I have been using it every day since I got it. 
Goodies I purchased 
I have been Loving orange lip products so Sila's long wear lip colour in Outrageous was a must, I am so happy with this product I have had it on today and it has lasted through my morning coffee, lunch and a coctail, before needing a freshen up. 
I have fallen head over heels with Stila smudge stick waterproof eye liners since discovering one in the Stila Pallete featured here. I grabbed one in blue ribbon, so pretty. 
Mecca  Loot 
I was after a frosty taupe nail polish for winter and Kits Move Up was just what I was looking for, neutral and frosty with out being to glittery. 
 I was over the moon when the beautiful Mecca sales associate said "here is your free gift" who doesn't love a freebee?? The cute little box contains a Soap and Glory Hand food sample  ( this smells like heaven) a Bumble and bumble thickening hairspray sample, a Smashbox  photo finish luminizing primer ( Love it looks great on its own). A Stila illuminating tinted moisturizer sample, a Weil for Origins mega mushroom kin relief serum sample and a set of Kit nail strips in Kiss & Tell. 

Let me know if you would like me to review any of these products in more detail. xx
