Now that you have picked yourself up off the floor after passing out in excitement, yes the rumours are true – MECCA has lowered prices on some products in store and online in NZ! Although I had heard that this price drop was going to happen later on in September, it seems that MECCA decided to bring the drop earlier to the delight of MUO’s everywhere!
Speaking with a MECCA Cosmetica representative she confirmed that this price drop is permanent andmeaning that it’s not just some sort of short term sale however she also confirmed that this will unfortunately probably be the last price drop of 2014. The actual price drop or price difference however depends on the brand and the type of product. To give you an example of the price changes – the Stila Stay All Day Foundation has gone from $88 to $69, NARS Laguna has gone from $72 to $58, NARS Sheer Glow $89 to $69. The popular Stila All Over Shimmer Duo in Kitten has dropped by $8 – and yes that is a good enough reason for me to finally go and buy it!
Although I couldn’t get a confirmation of the reasoning behind the price changes it seems very likely that it is due to Sephora opening up in Australia very soon. Sephora have promised to price match their products in Australia to their American stores, meaning that these higher end products which haven’t been very accessible to New Zealanders will soon be cheaper and easier to get!
This makes me really, REALLY excited! Imagine not even having all the difficulties of using YouShop or other pricey shipping companies and how much happier our bank accounts will be! Of course you will all be the first to know when I do a MECCA haul x
