Its that time of year again ☃

BEAUTY ADVENT CALENDARS OF 2013...

Last december, i can remember how exciting it was to wake up every day and open a new nail varnish from my ciate advent calendar, and this year, theres even more of a variety of advent calendars to choose from! 

1.  Benefit's Countdown to Love (£50)
This is personally my favourite beauty advent calendar of this year and its also benefit's first calender, now i know what you're thinking, £50 is ALOT of money for an advent calendar, but actually this one is one of the cheaper ones, compared to others, and, if you're a Benefit lover like me, you will be loving this! And.. this advent calendar contains every single Benefit product you've ever wanted to try, just in travel size version's.. Perfect!

set includes:
deluxe "that gal" 7.5 mL/0.25 US fl. oz.
deluxe the POREfessional 7.5 mL/0.25 US fl. oz.
deluxe high beam 2.5 mL/0.08 US fl. oz.deluxe sun beam 2.5 mL/0.08 US fl. oz.deluxe benetint 2.5 mL/0.08 US fl. oz.deluxe chachatint 2.5 mL/0.08 US fl. oz.deluxe posietint 2.5 mL/0.08 US fl. oz.deluxe ultra plush lip gloss in CORAListasugarbomb,dandelionA-lister 4 x 6.5 mL/0.22 US fl. oz.deluxe hoola, deluxe dandelion, deluxe CORALista 3 x 3.0 g Net wt. 0.1 oz.deluxe BADgal lash mascara 4.0 g Net wt. 0.14 oz.deluxe stay don't stray in light/medium 2.5 mL/0.08 US fl. oz.deluxe BADgal liner waterproof 0.5g Net wt. 0.02 oz.deluxe it's potent eye cream 3.0g Net wt. 0.1 oz.deluxe total moisture facial cream 8.9 g net wt. 0.3 oz.deluxe ooh la lift 2.5 mL/0.08 US fl oz.deluxe girl meets pearl 7.5 mL/0.25 US fl oz.AND...horseshoe charm braceletstar charm necklaceribbon bow barrette

for me, £50 actually seems quite cheap for this particular advent calendar, as it contains such good and expensive products, so i would definitely recommend this character to anyone!




You can purchase this from the Benefit Cosmetics website from the 2nd November.

2. Boots Beauty Advent calendar £30

Like the Countdown to love, this calendar is also cheap and affordable. It comes with products of Soap & Glory, Nails Inc, Paco Rabanne, Juicy Couture, Rimmel, Mavala, Umberto Giannini and Many More inside and will keep you guessing for 24 days of december! The products inside are all together worth over £65 so in my eyes its a good buy, the products range from miniature and full-size, and the fact thats its boot's own calendar, ensures the products are going to be good! 

You can purchase this advent calendar from the Boots Website and collect 120 boots points!



3. Ciate's Mini Mani month (£42)
This calendar is very similar to the ciate one i purchased last year, however the packaging is different and most of the nail varnishes inside are too. I personally loved this advent calendar, and i am now never short of any nail varnish colours, however, opening up a nail varnish every day can become quite boring, and i found that most of the colours i don't actually use, like the lime green and lemon yellow, as i am fussy with my nails, therefore, i wouldn't recommend this to someone who doesn't like every single colour on their nails, as this can be quite over whelming, and can really just take up un necessary space,  However, if you are a nail varnish lover then this calendar is obviously perfect for you! The nail varnish quality is very good, for those of you who haven't ever tried ciate before, and my favourite thing about last year's calendar was the Caviar pearl Bottles, i think there was around 3-4 pots inside the calendar.





You can purchase this calendar from the Selfridges website.


4. Selfridges Exclusive Beauty Advent Calendar (£84)
Lastly, Selfridges own calendar, which is very pricey, but has very good products included,  From Viktor & Rolf, Yves Saint Laurent, Kiehl's and Giorgio Armani to Lancôme and Maison Martin Margiela, and many more. Lancôme is the biggest focus in this calendar, and i can say that if i had a spare £84 i would 100% purchase this, as i know that i will use everything inside.

Unfortunately, this advent calendar is currently out of stock, but when it becomes in stock you can purchase it from the Selfridges website


Happy buying and choosing your advent calendar this year!
