Playing at Mecca Maxima

You know what? You really are one fine specimen. And don’t we know … it takes time, courage, know-how and effort to maintain those healthy looks. It also doesn’t hurt that you have the expertise of Jo Horgan, founder of Mecca Cosmetica and her team of super well-versed-in-all-things-beauty at hand.

Let us introduce you to her newest venture, a beauty playground of Willy Wonka proportions. Please meet Mecca Maxima. 

Here’s where you’ll find a pure play zone for primping – 30,000 beauty products, 100 beauty brands. Those that are expertly edited, tried and tested including Nars, Stila, Philosophy, Smashbox, Kiehl’s, YSL, Clinique, Eve Lom, Malin+Goetz, Bumble and bumble and Perricone MD.

Walk into the 220m2 to find make-up in every fashion-forward and classic colour, shade and intensity; skin care to help you purify, glow and glisten; and hair care sprays, goops, foams and creams.  Bath and body products to help you bring the day spa home, signature scents, and every type of tool for brushing, plucking, buffing and preening.

The staff are around to answer your questions and proffer insider beauty tips (hint: turn your basket sign to “I need help”). Otherwise they’ll leave you to your own devices and you can play, rub, spritz and buff at your pace and leisure.

Who needs Sephora when we’ve got Mecca Maxima in our own backyard?
