I know its ridiculously early to be dropping the C-Bomb, and I promise that I will try and refrain from mentioning anything to do with the holiday season until at least mid October, but I have to let you know about the Beauty Advent Calendars of 2014. Several companies released their own Beauty Advent Calendars last Winter however they sold out rather quickly and left a lot of people broken hearted, I’m blaming you Benefit, and I had to settle for a Percy Pig calendar instead. Here’s my guide to the best of the best of beauty advent calendars for Christmas 2014.
First up is the Benefit Cosmetics advent, priced at £60. The Candy Coated Countdown is top of my list for the festive period. Containing 24 beauty treasures and mini Benefit goodies which are so cute, this calendar will be available at Benefit and Debenhams from the 16th October.
Exclusive to Selfridges, and comes in three special designs, the Ciate Mini Manor is one of my favourites for advent choice. With 17 mini colours, 5 texture paints, a full size polish and festive transfers, I’d find it hard to not open the entire thing in one day. At just £49, that’s a lot of polish for not a lot of pennies.
The Selfridges Enchanted Spells advent calendar doesn’t have a release date just yet, but I can guarantee that it won’t be around for long. With 24 mini luxury items, I would be head over heels in love with this! Mini goodies include Kiehls, YSL, Lancome and Viktor & Rolf.
The most luxurious and expensive out of the bunch, the Liberty advent calendar costs a whopping £149. Designed in gorgeous Liberty print, natch, and filled with top notch brands such as NARS, Eve Lom, Dermalogica and Deborah Lippman, this really is the one to be lusting after. I need it! It should be in store and online by November. Shop the Liberty Calender here.
The biggest bargain award goes to No7 for their £35 calendar that contains products to the value of £130 including the new wonder cream, Protect and Perfect. Not only is there a gift every day on the run up to Christmas, but you even get one on Christmas Day. Extra presents, wahoo! No release dates as of yet, but I will update as soon as I find out!
