Beauty Advent Calendars for 2014

Christmas is coming around ever so scarily and quickly this year. My favourite part as a kid was my mum buying me a chocolate advent calendar and getting excited to count down each day. As I've grown older i guess the novelty has just worn off and if anything most chocolate in the calendars taste awful... Which is where the beauty calendars come in, i only discovered this wonderful invention last year when Boots released their own, which i sadly was too late to buy as everywhere was completely sold out of them. This year i am prepared! I already have one sitting in my room, i have my eye on quite a few which to me is super exciting and maybe(?) a bit expensive (oops).
Okay my first choice isn't beauty related but how amazing is this? 25 tea-light candles with the loveliest of Christmassy scents, i am determined to burn them all before Christmas! 

I only recently tried this brand and yes i do totally regret leaving it so long before doing so, but this is a great way to help broaden your collection of nail polishes with maybe some shades you never imagined of trying? I know i tend to stick to the same colours so this would be great for someone who's stuck for what suits them and what doesn't.

Benefit Cosmetics - £60
A very popular advent calendar by far! I recently looked on the website and it's already sold out unfortunately. But what a steal it is! With all the gorgeous selection of mini products from Benefit to try, it's more than worth the money you'll spend on it.

I remember Zoella showing this calendar on her vlogs of last year, it always got me excited to try it as i remember it being huuuge! It really is packed full of goodies which i'm desperate to try, 

    No7 - £35
Possibly the biggest bargain yet, if you can't afford to splash out over 60 pounds for one, this is a perfect medium that still gives you miniatures of No7s best selling products. Sounds perfect to me.

    Topshop Jewellery - £25
Another steal, in case you want something different instead of make-up. 24 boxes full of gorgeous jewellery, need i say more? I love this idea!

What calendars are you hoping to get this year? I think I'm going to grab Boots' when they put it on sale as i know how quick they sell! Let me know of any i didn't mention please xx


  1. I want the you beauty one! It looks amazing x

  2. Good luck to everyone trying to get a Benefit calendar! I don't use many Body Shop products so I think that one is super interesting.

  3. These look so good! I really want to make my own this year and put unique treats in it.

    I really want to get myself an advent calendar this year and the one I have been truly impressed with is from YouBeauty, might have to buy it soon. I had no idea Topshop were doing a jewellery one, sounds great! x

  5. I reserved myself a Benefit calendar and I'm so excited to finally collect it this weekend! I must say it's going to be hard having it in a room and not being able to open it for another month haha! x

  6. After seeing last year's Ciaté calendar and really want this year's now! x

  7. It's torture knowing you can't open it all at once either!! x

  8. I love that beauty calendars are really expanding and getting more popular, i never knew either! x


I'd love it if you left me a lovely comment about my post, have a lovely day :}
