I feel like Christmas creeps up on us earlier each year, but when it comes to the beauty advent calendar, they are too exciting not to share. With a few beauty advent calendars launching already at the end of August, I decided to start this years guide a whole month earlier, plus it sounds like from Twitter you all can’t wait either!
I’m loving seeing the designs this year, it feels like brands have really concentrated on the design not just the contents to compete with each other. The usual favourites are back this year from the likes of Look Fantastic, Liberty and Marks & Spencer. Sadly I can confirm one of the original beauty advent calendars will not be returning this year, as Benefit have chosen not to release one. I also know QVC won’t be returning with one. But we have new additions from Debenhams and La Mer to look forward to, as well as MAC which I’m very excited about!
As always I’ll be updating this page with the calendars as soon as I get the info, so make sure to bookmark this page and keep checking back for more additions and release dates. You can also follow me on social where I’ll share out updates, add me on Facebook, Twitter & Instagram. Watch my beauty advent calendar unboxing videos.
Which will you be adding to your wish list?
