Now, we know that it’s still a month away from Christmas, but since when has that stopped anyone from getting into the festive mood early? To spice things up a lil this year, we’re introducing the one thing that’s going to make the season of gifting much better — Beauty Advent Calendars!
If you’re unsure of what Beauty Advent Calendars are, it’s basically a box of goodies that is dedicated to celebrating the countdown towards Christmas day, but of course with beauty treat each day. All you have to do is to ‘open’ up the little tabs in the kit according to the date, and surprise yourself with a little gift all season round.
Not to mention, prices are extremely attractive for the number of products (and the brands) you’re getting.
Beauty Advent Calendars sell out really quick because of the novelty and fun of the idea. We’re spotting some really exciting ones popping up, with famed makeup brands joining in the party as well.Of course, these kits aren’t just all about beauty, there’s skincare and perfumes too so you can be sure that there’s something for everyone!
Here are the top 5 calendars that we can’t wait to get our hands on:
Best known for their affordable yet quality products which are easily dupes for high-end makeup, you can be sure that you won’t be disappointed by NYX’s advent calendar. Get all their bestsellers (which includes the ever-popular Soft Matte Lip Creams and eyeshadaows) in this nifty 24-piece kit.
This advent calendar is really to die for. Should you be looking to spoil yourself (or a significant other) this Christmas by rebooting your makeup stash, look no further. The kit from Bare Minerals houses everything a girl needs: think lip glosses, lipsticks, blushers, eyeshadows, mascaras AND a skincare goodie. You’re welcome.
Pro tip: Want to achieve glowy skin like Kylie Jenner? Use Kiehls. The drop-dead gorgeous makeup mogul has made it known publicly that Kiehls is her go-to skincare brand and has tons of products to recommend, from makeup removers to eye-serums. YouTube beauty like Manny MUA and Patrick Starr are also big fans of the skincare brand, so there really isn’t any excuse for you to not be picking this kit up. Look forward to 24 travel-sized and award-winning products.
For girls who’re always fickle about their nail colour, how about getting the Ciaté advent calendar with 18 colours at one go? There’s one to suit every party theme so you can be sure you’ll never end up with boring nails. The kit also includes two nail treatments and two nail toppers.
Could we all take a moment to admire the extremely luxurious packaging of Charlotte Tilbury’s beauty advent calendar?! The luxe rose gold theme comes through gorgeously, and each little drawer of the kit contains one of the brand’s most sought after product — in adorable travel sizes. There’s lipstick, skincare, highlight… It’s just a dream in a box.
Most of these beauty advent calendars won’t be available in Singapore, sadly. But should you really want to get your hands on them (to pamper yourself!) simply put up a request on Airfrov, and a friendly traveller will bring your present back to you!
