Let me know what you think of these advent calendars beaut's... Will you be buying one of these this year?? I'd love to know.



  1. Ahhh I want them all. I have never had a beauty advent calendar but I would really like one :)

  2. I've never had a beauty calendar before so decided to get the Tanya Burr one this year! The NYX one sounds incredible though, if I could justify it, I'd buy them all!

  3. I don't like the packaging of the Benefit one at all, it looks so childish! I do love the look of the BareMinerals one though!

  4. Oh gosh, I want them ALL. Is it weird that the Yankee one is probably the one I would love most though? ;)

  5. I really wasnt liking the benefit calender did you see British Beauty Blogger talking about it? its so tacky i mean it has a song that says "give me all your men" i mean really?

  6. Last year I got one "self-made" (my family made it to me), because makeup revolution's was sold out...
    This year I really want to get the TBS one (I believe in my country there will be only one "type" of it), but I don't know if I can afford it - sounds funny, but Christmas is an expensive event...and I'm student, not a fulltime worker (is it an existing phrase?) so December is my "officially-broken" month...xD)

  7. I love them all. I just don't understand why advent calendars aren't a big thing like they are overseas. I think their so fun and festive but we barely have any in the states each year. But I love the yankee candle one (even though it isn't an advent like u said) Im a crazy candle lady too!

  8. They all look so nice just need someone rich to buy them for me lol xoxo
