Put your best face forward – Mecca Maxima’s largest-ever store is now open at Wintergarden
Calling all beauty junkies of Brisbane – we don’t mean to alarm you, but something extremely significant has happened. If you live for your lashes, know how to contour like a pro and have a serious jones for skincare, you’re probably already aware of a little old store called Mecca Maxima. Here comes the news you may want to sit down for – our fair city has officially become home to the biggest Mecca Maxima in the whole darn country! Mecca Maxima Wintergarden is open for business, bringing lovers of all things beauty a mind-boggling selection of premium products to play with.
If you were in the CBD on Friday September 15, odds are you saw an enormous line snaking through the Queen Street Mall. These pretty punters were part of a 2000-strong queue that fronted up to the Mecca Maxima Wintergarden opening day. The brand-new expanded digs clock in at 500sqm following a redevelopment of the existing site, with the new store stacked across three levels. Along with the size upgrade comes some awesome new in-store features such as a beauty concierge, beauty bars with the ability to service up to 12 people at a time, and even a dedicated skin zone available for consultations.
Let’s talk brands – Mecca Maxima Wintergarden is full to the brim with cult favourites, cruelty-free names and overseas exclusives. Coveted cosmetics brands such as NARS, Too Faced (hot tip: the Better Than Sex mascara is a game changer), Urban Decay, Smashbox, bareMinerals and Hourglass are joined by skincare favourites like Mario Badescu, Kate Somerville and Drunk Elephant. The sweet line-up also encompasses body and hair brands to the tune of frank body and Bumble & Bumble, as well as the latest K-beauty trends from Mizon, Chosungah 22 and 16Brand. You can also shop the very wallet-friendly range of Mecca’s in-house brand Mecca MAX, which dropped in August this year and has already caused a serious stir in beauty circles around the country.
