I have to admit, that I’ve never had a posh advent beauty calendar, and every year more and more brands are coming out with their version. And since this December will be absolutely mental for me, I’ve decided to browse them, and maybe get one to cheer myself up.
And, yes, all the good ones sell out in a matter of days, so you have to get them as soon as they launch, which is usually October. Let’s take a look.

Besides Liberty’s, there are quite a few other incredible offers:
Space NK £250 (worth £600) from 15th October at SpaceNK. A beauty lovers dream, the first ever advent calendar from the shop. This would be my second choice, after Liberty’s.

Net-a-Porter, Another debut, first
As you can imagine, I see new beauty launches every single day so the product has to be very special to stand out, let alone, for me to want to buy it, especially considering the amount of items I already have.
But when I saw SOL DE JANEIRO Brazilian Bum Bum Cream I knew I had to have it. To be honest, the team behind this product are a bunch of geniuses! Everything about this gem is very clever from the name, the eye catching design, online presence to the product itself. You simply can’t resist it.Interestingly enough, I did not buy this cream myself, my partner noticed my obsession and got it for me. Which proves once again that the name is brilliant! Bum bum
So what about my impression? The first thing you notice is the oh-so-cool design. Who does not want that
I’ve used up Darphin Aromatic Cleansing Balm till the very last drop, so it is about time I write about it.
This cleanser is a cult product in the industry, and rightly so. First of all, as the name suggests, it smells absolutely incredible, there is something soothing and relaxing about using it at the end of the day, it is like a well deserved “me time”. The scent is divine thanks to Marula Oil, Sage, Ylang Ylang and Rosewood Essential Oils. It is truly therapeutic, especially with our hectic schedules.
I also love the cleansing properties and how soft it makes my skin feel. While I never remove my eye makeup with this type of cleansers, I find that it does the job of
There are lots of new makeup launches for Autumn, and I have selected the hottest, in my opinion, for you to choose from. I’ve also made sure to pick something for face, lips and eyes.
Givenchy lipsticks are the hottest ones out there, if you ask me. And while I definitely do not need any new ones, I’d get this one in a heart beat. Leather case and a liquid lipstick which look easy to apply. Oh, yes! The formula is promised to be soft and creamy, and the finish – matte. The shade featured is 410 Rouge Suedin.
It is basically a lipstick which comes in a form of a felt pen which allows a very precise application. Dior claim “long-wearing formula delivers intense colour with a sumptuous matte finish for up to 12 hours”. The colour shown is
So today I would like to share about my other discovery which is “drying drops”. I have never tried them before but was curious to do so, so picked up a bottle of Jessica Quick Dry 60 Second Drying.
Pictured is also a repurchase of CND Solar Oil
And it is a really cool product. It is basically a drying oil which you drop on your nails after applying a nail polish. It really speeds up the drying process which is absolutely incredible.
The product does not mess up the nail polish and is absolutely undetectable. So if you
