The Best Beauty Advent Calendars
BEAUTY NEWS | 10 November 2017
The run up to Christmas just got more glamorous!
Cue the Beauty Advent Calendar, a festive must-have for any self-respecting beauty addict. But if you’re thinking of swapping your chocolate treats for a decadent daily dose of pampering throughout December, best not delay. Santa may not be ready to load his sleigh just yet, but already some of the more popular beauty calendars are flying off the shelves.
Lypsyl HQ went shopping to identify a few of our favourites…
For pure extravagance
Diptyque Advent Calendar, £300
The Parisian perfumer’s extravagant Christmas calendar contains 25 luxurious little treats, including mini helpings of fragrance, skin and body care and the brand’s famous scented candles. These sold out so fast last year, some sellers are already getting ready to sell this year’s version on eBay for up to £550!
For cult status
Liberty Beauty Advent Calendar, £169
London’s iconic department store creates its decadent advent calendar packed with cult beauty brands handpicked from its famous beauty hall. Launched on 25th October and worth over £500, these sold out super-fast last year, so we suggest you invest soon if you want one.
For the fragrance fan
Superdrug Bloom 12 Days of Christmas Perfume Advent Calendar, £12
Behind each little door hides a sumptuous Bloom fragrance, including a mini Bloom Mandarin and Lime Basil, which is rumoured to bear an uncanny resemblance to the popular Jo Malone Lime, Basil and Mandarin Cologne (£88/100ml), except it only costs £5/50ml.
For fierce festive nails
OPI Love OPI XOXO, £63
Splash out on this 25-strong set of limited edition mini polishes and you’ll have a new chip-resistant OPI nail shade to show off every day during the run up to Christmas. Expect bold reds, striking metallics, black hues and rich sumptuous purples in this golden box of talon treats.
For makeup queens
Charlotte Tilbury Naughty and Nice Magic Box Advent, £150
There may only be 12 treats not 25, but the advent offering from makeup artist, Charlotte Tilbury, won’t disappoint diehard fans of her brand. This glamorous Christmas box of delights is full of full-sized and mini best-sellers, including her Wonderflow Face Primer and a rich, berry-toned Matte Revolution Lipstick to apply over your favourite Lypsyl balm!
For lipstick queens
NYX Lippie Countdown, £50
Pucker up with the limited edition set of 24 individual lip colours from NYX Professional. You’ll find a range of shades and finishes hiding behind the lip-shaped doors that should keep your pout perfect throughout December and beyond (especially if you pamper with plenty of Lypsyl balm too!)
For bargain hunters
Beauty in Wonderland Advent Calendar by Lookfantastic, £79
There’s £300 worth of beauty products nestling behind the doors of this decadently decorated calendar, which magically transforms into a ready-made mirrored vanity unit once the festive celebrations are over. You’ll find nine full-sized products and 16 deluxe samples inside, 19 of which are exclusive to lookfantastic.
