Review: Multi Purpose Plumping Balm

Hello beauties,

Fancy seeing you again 😉

Mecca Cosmetica recently celebrated their 20th birthday. That’s right they turned 20! If you don’t know what I’m talking about – Mecca is a makeup store located across Australia and New Zealand. They stock brands including Too Faced, Smashbox, Stila etc.

For their birthday they were kind enough to give out full sized products from their range. I was gifted the Multi Purpose Plumping Balm. Oh, you must also be part of the Beauty Loop, which is essentially a point system to be entitled to certain gifts.

As the lovely sales assistant was serving me (mind you all the staff at Mecca are so nice) she stated that the Multi-Purpose Plumping Balm could be used as a primer, moisturizer and mask.

I was gob smacked. I firstly thought how on earth is that even possible. I secondly thought whoever came up with this idea is a genius.

To my eager I tried it that night – as a mask.

Applying a semi thick layer I gently surfaced my entire face with the multi purpose mask. Avoiding my eyes of course. I left it on for about 5-10 minutes then gently rubbed it off with luke warm water.

The Plumping balm has a rich creamy texture. It’s hydrating and moisturizing. By the time I washed it off (which took awhile because of the creamy texture) my face felt like it was reborn.

Here are a few shots of how creamy the texture is:P1040235

Now, using this as a moisturiser and primer is just as perfect. Although I only apply a thin layer when I’m using it under my makeup. Like I would if I were using a normal cream.

It’s easy to blend and gives that ‘plump’ look. I’ve read many review where people are saying it’s heavily fragranced. To be quiet frank I find the scent to be quiet soft – it’s a soft shea scent.

Pros:

  • hydrating
  • leaves face smooth
  • 3 in 1 product

Cons:

  • 40g (too small for a multi purpose product)

Recommendation: 8/10

Thank you all for reading. Comment below if you’ve tried this or want to give it a go and have further queries.
