MECCA Maxima to open in the capital city

It’s been a good week for beauty enthusiasts – Benefit Cosmetics announced it will open a stand-alone boutique  in Auckland in March – and it’s about to get better.

It may have only been a few months since MECCA Maxima opened its doors in Christchurch, but the home of some of the world’s most covetable beauty brands is coming to Wellington. The beauty bazaar is rumoured to be opening in April – watch this space for more details – and will bring sought-after beauty brands including Too Faced, Urban Decay, Drunk Elephant, Mario Badescu and Josie Maran Cosmetics to Wellingtonians.
