So I missed out on this last year, because it sold out in the time I blinked! However, this year, I’ve managed to get my hands on it… and spoiler alert, THIS CALENDAR IS INCREDIBLE! Hands down my favourite of all the ones I’ve seen floating around the internet! The packaging is beautiful, the products are amazing and the price is just right!
So the calendar has 25 days – with the 25th box seating nicely on the side there. It’s £99 for non subscribers and £75 for subscribers and I love how the boxes fit in together!
So let’s get it open!
NARS Velvet Lip Guide in Burning Love | What a great way to start an advent calendar! I’ve never had a NARS lip product before and I can’t be happier to get one! This colour is gorgeous, the packaging is amazing and OMG OMG!
NIP + FAB Dragon Blood Plumping Serum | Nip + Fab is such a great skincare brand and their serums are some of the best out there (in my opinion). So another great product!
Yankee Candle in Berry Trifle | I love a good candle and a Yankee Candle on day 3, I know what my room is going to smell of this Winter!
Philip Kinglsey Body Building Conditioner | It’s a bit of a shame you don’t get the matching shampoo, however, who doesn’t love a good conditioner and so I can’t wait to try this!
MDM Flow Greater Than Mascara | This has such a lovely packaging and a really nice hourglass wand! Love a good full size makeup item, and from a brand I’ve never heard of!
MINA Lip Primer | I’ve never really heard of a lip primer before, but I’m definitely going to start using this and see what kind of a difference it makes!
Patisserie De Bain Strawberry Cupcake Bath & Shower Cream | When I first saw this, I thought it was hand cream and was sort of unimpressed, then realised it was a shower cream and was instantly happier! This smells amazing!
RT Foundation Brush | There really are some AMAZING brands in this box, pretty much all of my favourite brushes come from RT and so a great brand to have in here!
Charles Worthington Volume & Bounce Mousse | I’ve recently really gotten into my hair styling products and so I’ll definitely get use out of this!
Bare Minerals | Still haven’t really worked out what this is, or what it’s called or anything. But I think it’s either a serum or a moisturiser…
Bellapierre Kiss Proof Lip Finish | Similar to the infamous Lipcote, this seals lipsticks you apply onto your lips. I feel like Bellapierre is that product you always get in these boxes and there have actually been some pretty good things from this brand!
MUA Palette in Cosmic Vixen | MUA are actually a really great brand for eyeshadow. I do already have this palette, but it’s a great brighter palette! The shimmers are the stand outs
Karmameju Charcial Age-Defence Konjac Sponge | I’ve received a few things like this recently, and I don’t really know where the trend has popped up from. Then again, that’s what these things are great for, helping you get involved in all the current trends!
Refibra Haircare Concentrated Restoring Mask | Another great hair product. I’ve never heard of this brand, but who doesn’t love a good hair mask!
INCredible Jelly Shot | I’ve always wanted one of these products, with the flower suspended in a clear jelly! And now I have one!
POP Beauty Pure Pigment in Metallic Copper | I’ve never really tried a pigment, but this one looks absolutely stunning! Copper is one of my favourite eyeshadow colours and I’m excited to try them!
LUXIE 522 Tapered Highlight Brush | Another great brush! This one feels and looks high quality and super cute, the brush feels soft to the touch and I’ve never tried a brush from Luxie before, but so far I’m impressed!
Lollipops Fluid Glowy Illuminator | Who doesn’t love a great highligher?! This is way too dark for my skintone, as it’s a little dark and golden/coppery, however it’s stunning and I think it will look pretty on the eye!
Crabtree & Evelyn Rosewater & Peppercorn Hand Therapy | Oh a hand cream. Is an advent calendar ever complete without a hand cream?! I’m just so fed up of them, but this one is lovely
Steve Laurant Lip Gloss in Eggplant | OMG Steve Laurant! This calendar is amazing! And this colour is goooorgeous!
Pixi by Petra Blush in Beach Rose | I’ve really gotten into blush recently, and this one looks stunning! Also Pixi is such a great brand!
Zelens Transformer Instant Renewal Mask | There’s literally no instructions on this product at all, so I’ll probably have to google it! However, I love how this is the first mask product in the calendar!
Eyeko Fat Eyestick | There’s no colour on this.. at least I can’t see it. However, this is such a pretty champagne/silver colour. I’m not one to use eye sticks very often, but it doesn’t mean people don’t love it
Mitchell and Peack Fine Radiance Face Oil | Face oils are actually pretty pricey, and so while I’ve never heard of this brand, I wouldn’t be surprised if this was super pricy! I’m not very good at remembering to use oils, but it really does do yous skin a world of good!
HUDA Beauty Winter Highlight Palette | Oh my actual god. What the hell. Where has this come from. What? I mean this isn’t probably the colour selection I’d chose (we have a palette of colours highlighters – green, blue, etc), but I’m still not complaining! HUDA is such a premium brand it’s super exciting to see something from it in this calendar!
This calendar is so so impressive!
What advent calendar do you have?
