My First Mecca Beauty Loop Box - Autumn 2018

Autumn 2018 Mecca Beauty Loop Box
I've been lusting after Mecca's quarterly Beauty Loop Boxes since the program started a few years ago, but I never spent enough to qualify for this free quarterly box of beauty samples. Earlier this year I finally crossed the threshold into Level 1, and received my first Beauty Loop Box today. The spoilers I saw on Instagram were initially really disappointing, but I ended up getting a different assortment of products, and I'm really pleased with them! Click through for a closer look at what came in my April 2018 Beauty Loop Box.
Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara Swatch
Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara
Deluxe Sample - $17
Full Size - $33
After occupying a spot on my wishlist for years, I finally bit the bullet and bought Too Faced's Better Than Sex Mascara in of course I'd get a free sample of it a few weeks later! I'm saving my detailed opinions for a full review, but I can tell you that I do like this mascara, but I don't think it lives up to it's rather cheeky name! Regardless, I'm glad to have another tube, as I can never have too much mascara
Eve Lom Cleanser Sample
Eve Lom Cleanser
Sample (5ml) - $7.3
Full Size (50ml) - $73
I never pass up the opportunity to try a new cleanser, especially one as famous as Eve Lom's! I was so excited to see a very generous sample of this cleansing balm in my Beauty Loop box and I couldn't wait to crack into it.  I intend on writing up a Sample Say So post about this cleanser, since I should get multiple uses out of this sachet. So far, I love it!
Mecca Max Day Slayer Pout Pop Lipstick Swatch
Mecca Max Day Slayer Pout Pop Lipstick 
Deluxe Sample  - $10~ 
Full Size - $20
The least exciting product in this quarters box, at least in my eyes. Day Slayer is a bright, glossy Barbie pink that doesn't suit me what so ever. I'm keeping this mini lipstick to play around with the formula and see if the Pout Pop Lipsticks are worth checking out, but honestly nothing from the Mecca Max line really calls to me. 
Grown Alchemist Age Repair Eye Cream
Sample (1ml) - $5
Full Size (15ml) - $75
Grown Alchemist isn't a brand I have any real opinion on - I've heard of the brand, but have never actually encountered it before receiving this sample of their Age Repair Eye Cream. Now that I'm well into my twenties, I'm trying to slip more anti-aging products into my routine, so I'm excited to try this peptide enhanced eye cream. I'm hoping to get enough use out of this packet to warrant a Sample Say So post. 
Total Value - $39.30 
I'm very impressed with my first Mecca Beauty Loop Box! While I would've preferred the contents of the Level 2 box, I'm still excited to try what I received. This quarters box was very well curated, in my opinion, including a balance of skincare and makeup at a range of price points - it really gives a great representation of what Mecca has to offer. I'm already looking forward to next quarter's Beauty Loop Box!
