Hi all, this will be more of a photo/visual essay of what I got to see at the #Meccaland2019 PR event held in Sydney. To start off with, I feel incredibly lucky and grateful that I was invited to Meccaland (I was invited to the PR event for the first one in 2018 and also was incredibly blessed). I honestly feel like I've won the Lotto!
I had intended to vlog for my Youtube channel but couldn't for copyright issues with music in the background.
This will be more of a visual diary of #Meccaland 2019. This year, there were over 40 brands there including NARS, Too Faced, Urban Decay, Drunk Elephant, HOURGLASS, Tatcha, Go-To (coming to MECCA in April), Stila, Laura Mercier, MECCA MAX, bareMinerals, M.A.C..
We were all also given a very generous goodie bag to take home which I'll share more with you soon.
Meccaland 2019 compared to Meccaland 2018
#Meccaland 2019 was much larger than #Meccaland 2018. I think 2018's was 1/3 of Meccaland 2019. There were so many fun activities to do and there was even a Ferris Wheel!! There were also lots of areas where you could sit and grab something to eat.
You can see from the Map above that there are just so many things you can do at Meccaland 2019!
The brands at Meccaland 2019 have been grouped into five different areas:
City of Lights
The Wild Flowers
Temple of You
I could stare at the lights all day and night! I really loved this tunnel leading into Meccaland 2019.
SO SPARKLY!! There is a "tunnel" of lights as you enter. Make sure you look up at #meccaland
There was an opening speech from Mecca's Founder Jo Horgan.
I just kept going "wow" "WOW" "wow"!!
EVERTHING at #meccaland was just amazing!
As we entered into Meccaland, we were led on a short tour of the floor. Yes, there is a person covered in glitter dancing! #sosparkly
Whopee!! me on the ferris wheel. YES! There was a Ferris Wheel!
#YSL had a really cool stand with this spinning wheel. You can get a customised lipstick - there were different caps to choose from and they engrave them on the spot!
You can watch me running up and down this temple on my IG Stories "MECCALAND2019"
Super fun activities to do!
There was a super cool #Tatcha tunnel!
These are simply to die for! You can get a customised (a single shade, two shades and three shades) but you have to make sure you book in your time slot to get one. I really want one of each :) #byterry #SWOON
I was so excited to learn that Hourglass has now produced the gorgeous "Mecca" shade from the limited edition palette as a single blush with a matching lip gloss!!
YES!!! Hurray for the Maison Margiela for getting me to do this! The team at Meccaland were so so friendly and loads of fun!
There were lots of yummy food too. I also had mini beef and vege burgers.
I really loved how each brand created and decorated their stands. SO dreamy #interiordesign
Floral Street was there too at Meccaland 2019. This is a relatively new brand of fragrances available exclusively to Mecca (they arrived around October 2018). I have a collected a few and am in the process of reviewing them.
There are so many choices of sets that you can get at Meccaland 2019 from #drunkelephant
The decorations were amazing. I could stare at them all day long.
That silver mitt from #patchology you see in the photo above is a hand mask! It self-heats up as well to give the ultimate luxury hand treatment.
Maybe if I lose enough weight, I could be a "Lip - head"?! C'mon, are they all not gorgeous???
I had a play with this collections and it is very pretty! The highlighter has the image of Jessica Rabbit pressed into it.
EVERYTHING was just visually so stunning!
Elemis has this incredible Superfoods range, I tested the mist and the oil and they were so lovely!
As there are so many things to see, it is really cool that Mecca has created little pockets of rest areas at Meccaland 2019. I also saw a phone charger booth too.
The press/VIP party started at 4 p.m. and at 6.30p.m. we were invited upstairs for cocktails and more food. Mecca had to prep for the first consumer event which started at 7p.m.
I'll share more about what we received soon :)
Yes, I'm a GEEK!
I HAVE A MECCALAND selfie light - OMG!
There were these two ladies dressed as "gypsies" walking around and doing on the spot fortune telling. They were from Lipstick Queen. You had to pick a lipstick and then they gave us a card and told us our fortune. I chose Frog Prince and was told that I had the "Love of my Life". So sweet.
Do look out for the Kate Somerville reps walking around. I felt so lucky that she gave me a bag and a full sized Exfolikate!
This year, instead of giving us ready made Beauty Loop Boxes, they gave us choices (YES). We were able to pick 6 items out of a group of maybe 20 different products?
So that's a wrap for me! Meccaland 2019 promised bigger and better things and they certainly DID!! I can't wait to see what is in store for Meccaland 2020 (please please please have another one!)
