Clear out your makeup bag Christchurch, MECCA is opening a new store and you won’t want to miss this one.

Calling all beauty addicts of Christchurch, come next week your prayers will be answered and dreams come true, because you’re getting a cross-concept store the first of its kind for the South Island. No need to stock up any longer on those weekend trips to Auckland, because the brains behind this global beauty brand are combining the best of Mecca Maxima and Mecca Cosmetica to bring you your very own store filled with 75 of the world’s most cutting edge sought-after skincare, fragrance, and makeup brands all under one very large, very pink roof.

Expect to see your favourites such as Drunk Elephant, Bobbi Brown, Urban Decay, and Too Faced, alongside MECCA’s own exclusive range. The new store will also mean gaining access to the latest product releases to hit New Zealand shores, so your makeup game no longer needs to suffer during that pesky overseas shipping waiting game.

But it doesn’t stop there! In classic MECCA style, it’s not just about the products, but about the entire beauty experience. The South Island’s first concept store will house an array of beauty service stations equipped with everything you need to upskill and impress your friends on your next night out. From the three ‘Play Bars” providing space to experiment and learn new techniques, to eight make up stations, and an in house Perfumeria, you may walk out with a slightly lighter wallet, but you’ll be armed with a whole range of knowledge to take on the (beauty) world!

If access to the latest and greatest in makeup and skincare technology isn’t enough to whet your appetite, then the opening day should get the excitement building! Just like previous openings of MECCAs around the world, this will be a celebration not to be missed. Think complimentary coffee and delicious sweet treats, expert beauty touch-ups, and exclusive access to products never before seen on South Island shores. But of course, there’s more.

For every guest who spends over $85 in store, there’s a bonus treat for you – the chance to pick a gift from the giant MECCA Bag lucky dip!

So, say goodbye to the old Mecca Maxima and join us in spring cleaning our beauty cupboards - you’re going to need all the space you can find for those new ‘must-have’ beauty buys.
