Here’s what the MECCA community are voting for in the second week of the Beauty Election


Week two of voting for this year’s MECCA Beauty Election is well and truly on its way, and there are some major frontrunners coming to play (a whopping 50 percent of Beauty Browsers have voted for NARS Orgasm as their best blush!). It’s our duty to keep you up to date on who’s voting for what, so here’s what the greater MECCA community are pledging their beauty allegiance to this week.

REN Clean Skincare Evercalm Protection Day Cream

A sensitive skin dream, it’s no surprise to see the votes rolling in for this vegan, protective and hydrating moisturiser. As well as being homed in recyclable packaging (with all of the brand’s packaging set to be made from recycled ocean waste plastic by 2021), this favourite is formulated to treat redness, chronic irritation and extreme dryness, and is filled with antioxidants to help train the skin, with continued use, to be less sensitive. It’s lauded as a ‘sensitive skin saviour’ by the MECCA community, and MECCA Chit Chat member Paige says it “has done wonders for [her] redness and sensitivity.”

Glow Recipe Avocado Melt Sleeping Mask

Exploding onto the scene (and into our skincare collections) last year, Glow Recipe’s cult favourite Avocado Melt Sleeping Mask is as iconic a mask as ‘smashed avo’ is an Australian brunch essential. While one nourishes the stomach and soul during the day, the other nourishes overnight, alleviating dry, flaky skin and firming the complexion for skin that’s bright and hydrated from the moment you wake up. Chit Chat member Astrid reaches for the green gamechanger when her skin is “especially thirsty,” describing it as “rich and divine”, and another member, Charlotte, will smooth it over her face when her “acne scarring is red and visible,” claiming that it helps “to diminish the appearance of scars.”

Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder

Ask anyone for their favourite setting powder, and we can almost guarantee nine out of 10—without skipping a beat—will say this one. Milled into the tiniest of particles, this cult classic translucent powder is a makeup-wearer’s must, mattifying the skin (but never flattening it) to set makeup without settling into fine lines or caking. Plus, you can guarantee this magic powder will never ever leave you looking ghostly in selfies, thanks to a no-flashback formula we could not be more grateful for. MECCA CRM coordinator Nicola considers it a “true gamechanger.” “It holds my makeup in place all day long, and a little goes such a long way! It definitely has my vote in the MECCA Beauty Election.”

Mecca Cosmetica Tinted Lip De-Luscious with SPF 25

This beloved lip formula is a MECCA staple and a desk, bedside and handbag no-brainer. With a soft, fleshy tint that suits literally everybody, this shea, hyaluronic and pomegranate seed oil-powered balm quenches even the driest of lips, hydrating beyond the surface to condition with a hit of nourishing vitamin E. Our lips are one of the first parts of our body affected by sun, wind, and chill, so it’s reassuring to know this top-rated balm will keep your lips protected with SPF 25. For all at MECCA HQ, it’s a major frontrunner in the election for best lip product.
