Wonderful wishlists

Hey MECCA beauties, have you ticked off the major players on your Christmas shopping list yet? Mum, bestie, Secret Santa… Wait, you haven’t even started your list? Neither have we! Don’t stress—the stars of our recent film series have come to the rescue sharing both what they’re gifting loved ones and what they’re hoping to find under the tree for themselves.


As Vogue Australia’s Fashion Features and Content Strategy Director, Zara’s job has its perks, such as previewing holiday collections long before they’re available—she’s had weeks to plan!

For my friend: Mecca Cosmetica The Ultimate Brush Collection

“The ultimate rule for gift-giving is to buy something that the recipient would love but never buy themselves. This ticks that box for my makeup obsessed friend.”

For me: NARS Noire Et Blanche Audacious Lipstick Coffret

“A red lip is my go-to beauty look, it never fails me and you can never have too many shades.”

For my fiancé: Perricone MD Ultimate Hydration Starter Kit

“My fiancé still doesn’t think a daily moisturiser is necessary yet loves to steal my eye cream. He needs products of his own!”

Last minute stocking stuffer: THIS WORKS Sleep Power

“This is by far my favourite sleep mist and I want everyone to try it out!”

For me: Bastide Huile Seche Epatante Dry Oil Mist

“Face oils are the one skin-care product that I’m truly obsessed with.”


We’re not surprised that the Badlands Journal Creative Director has a perfectly curated line-up of presents this year.

For me: RODIN Lavender Absolute Luxury Face Oil

“I love anything lavender, and am already a big fan of the original formula, so this is a must-try.”

For my nonna: Bastide Figue d’Ete Hand and Body Lotion

“I thought of my nonna when I saw this gorgeous bottle, it will be right at home on her top shelf.”

For me: Byredo Saints Rosewater Candle

“I have been a long-time fan of Byredo's fragrances and this will look so pretty on my dresser!”

For my brother’s girlfriend: Mecca Cosmetica Lip de-Luxe Lip Wardrobe

“I'll be sending this over to Sweden for my brother's girlfriend as they head into winter.”

For my best friend: RMS Beauty Luminizer Set

“My best friend always borrows mine so I know she’ll be obsessed with this special set.”


Scrolling through her outdoorsy and travel-filled Instagram account, it’s no wonder the BEAR Creative Director has beautiful scents, SPF and glowy goodies on her list.

For my sister: Hourglass Ambient Metallic Strobe Lighting Palette

“My sister Tarrah is on the hunt for a highlighter so this one will be the perfect present.”

For my KK: Mecca Cosmetica The Great Protectors

“No need to overthink this year’s KK; a super-practical gift for summer holidays.”

For my husband: Le Labo Styling Concrete

“Such an exciting new grooming collection.”

For me, from my husband: Byredo Bibliotheque Room Spray

“I’m a big fan of the Bibliothèque scent and this bottle will be a beautiful addition to my home.”


The beauty-obsessed writer knows her way around a MECCA gift guide. She’s played with most of our limited-edition collections first-hand and this is what she’s eyeing off this year.

For mum: Rodin Neroli Jasmine Travel Kit

“Only the best for the woman who sparked my passion for skin care!”

For me: Diptyque 12 Mini Candle Holiday Set

“This is a gift from me, to me. These scents are beautiful.”

For my best friend: Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit Palette Vol. 3

“The palette includes setting powders, blushes, a bronzer and a highlighter so every base is covered (pun intended!).”

For me: NARS Man Ray Love Game Eyeshadow Palette

“Limited-edition Christmas products are the best! I love that this palette has a bit of everything from neutrals to brights, mattes to serious shimmers.”

For my KK: Mecca Cosmetica The Perfect Pair Lip Duo

“Lip de-luscious balms are my all-time-faves (I have one beside my bed, in my handbag, on my desk…) —they’re the perfect stocking filler.”
