Beauty Advent Calendars 2013


Christmas is a-coming guys and dolls!! Since the discovery that there doesn't just have to be chocolate behind those little numbered doors one of my favourite parts of the run up to Christmas is picking my advent calendar and getting a little beauty themed treat every single day for nearly a month. These calendars are slowly but surely creeping out of the woodwork and here are the ones that I know of so far but I'm sure there will be a couple more released in the run up to the most wonderful time of the year!


This was my calendar of choice last year and I'm swaying this way again because nearly a year on I'm still regularly using practically all of the shades that I got last year and that is what I call value for money! With this you get 24 mini paint pots including 4 caviar beads and 3 limited edition glitters that will not be found anywhere on gods sweet earth except behind one of these little doors. At £42 it's a little bit on the pricey side but you're guaranteed good quality nail varnish from Ciate and it if you think about it this way - it works out as £1.75 a polish and I don't know about you but my purse opens a lot easier thinking of it like that!


Finding a beauty fanatic who doesn't love Benefits innovative products and quirky packaging is like my bank balance still being intact the day of a new MAC collection release - rare! The countdown to love calendar is going to contain tiny little versions of all our favourite Benefit products like High Beam, The POREfessional and Benetint. It comes in at £50 and is available for one day and one day only on November 2nd so catch it while you can!


This is Boots first ever advent calendar and it keeps coming in and out of stock on the website although it is in stock as I type this. At £30 it is one of the most reasonably priced calendars out there and contains brands such as - Soap and Glory, Balmi, Rimmel, Seventeen and Vichy. The only thing that puts me off this (I've had a peek at the spoilers) and it's the fact that there's quite a few perfume samples and I get enough of them in my Glossybox!


This is definitely one for if you want to treat yourself or if someone extremely generous wants to treat you, it costs an eye watering £84 but doesn't it look amazing?! It's jam packed with luxury brands such as YSL, Lancome, Armarni and Viktor & Rolf. So if you fancy a bit of luxury in your life for 24 days and you have a spare £84 knocking about this one is for you!

So there you have it, this years beauty calendar offerings but I'm sure there will be a few more to come. Last year there were Liz Earle and You Beauty calendars so I'm keeping my eyes peeled! Will you be going for a beauty advent calendar this year or be sticking with Cadburys?
