Pout Perfect Book

2 days. 12 new shades of lipstick. Hundreds of amazing women.


Featured, Sponsored | by — May 12, 2013

THANK YOU to everyone who popped by at Mecca Maxima over the past two days!   I had the best time ever in my 4 years of blogging, and it’s been a truly AMAZING two days meeting so many gorgeous faces and recommending you a lipstick shade.

A huge THANKS to all the wonderful staff at Mecca Maxima and Clinique, in particular –  Ann (my partner in crime), Emma, Lena, Cindy (Mecca Maxima Melbourne Central), Yvonne, Maria and Nicole (Mecca Maxima Highpoint), Courtney & Francis (Clinique)

I met hundreds and hundreds of women over the two days, and whilst there were countless warm fuzzy moments when I saw the look on your faces trying on a lip colour that I recommended, some of the highlights for me were:

  • helping a woman with an autumnal colour palette discover she could actually wear coral with Coral Chic  paired with Clinique Quickliner for Lips in Cocoa Peach
  • helping 3 teenagers find a lip colour they can wear without getting into trouble with their dad (RSVPink, Coral Crush, Bejeweled Pink)
  • helping several women of all ages find their perfect red with Party Red
  • helping a new mum feel feminine again with Berry Intense
  • seeing mums & their daughters try the same shade of lipstick
  • helping two brides find a lipstick for their wedding day
  • inspiring so many gorgeous women to try  Spanish Rose – a hot fucshia lip which I wore for the two days
  • seeing the look on so many faces when they tried Magenta Rose – it appealed to everyone from young & trendy through to career women of ALL colour.

You have no idea how much I wished to chat more with each and every one of you, but it was CRAZY BUSY with one person lining up after the other & and I nearly lost my voice by the end of it.

Whether you took home a lipstick or simply came along to try something new, I hope you had as much fun as I did at the event!!

Don’t forget to enter the Instagram competition to win a $200 Mecca Voucher! Competition ends midnight tonight & I look forward to picking a winner Monday morning~

    Congratulations on such an amazing event. I had a fab time rediscovering Clinique lipsticks. Haven’t used any in a long time (only Chubby Sticks and lip gloss) so was very impressed when I realised how creamy the Long Last lipsticks were. Bought one for myself and another to give away 🙂

    I think all the ladies that came by that day discovered at least one new shade of lipstick that they never thought they could pull off before. Oh, and I remember those 3 teenage girls that came by.. I was actually quite surprised at how well those lipstick colours turned out on them! (Especially the girl with the Bejeweled pink!)
    And after doing a few applications, Im impressed at how versatile these new Clinique lipsticks are – They add a statement without being overstated at the same time (if that makes sense) haha x
