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.
This is the one for me. I am not sure I could love/want this more. Out of all luxury advent calendars, this stands out the most to me. It contains so many brands that I already love, as well as the ones I still want to try. Gimme.
The price is £195 (£600 worth) from 24th of October from Liberty London.
The products: Votary Super Seed Facial Cream 50ml, Hourglass Caution Extreme Lash Mascara 3.5g, REN Perfect Canvas 30ml, Malin + Goetz Mini Eucalyptus Deodorant 28g, Omorovicza Illuminating Moisturiser 30ml, Byredo Blanche Hair Perfume 30ml, LIXIRSKIN Electrogel Cleanser 50ml, Dr Sebagh Serum Repair 30ml, Trish McEvoy Instant Eye Lift, Surratt La Bâton Rouge in Quaintrelle, Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel 50ml, Aromatherapy Associates Clear Mind Rollerball 10ml, Skin Laundry Wrinkle Release Sheet Mask, Le Labo Another 13 EDP 15ml, Diptyque Figuier Candle 70g, Susanne Kaufmann De-Stress Body Oil 30ml, QMS Hand Care 30ml, Egyptian Magic All Purpose Skin Cream 30ml, Bobbi Brown Crystal Lip Gloss, Davines Oi All-in-One Milk 50ml, Pixi Glow Tonic 100ml, Sam McKnight Cool Girl Mist 50ml, Aurelia Probiotic Skincare Revitalise and Brighten Eye Dew 10ml, Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder, Eve Lom Kiss Mix
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.
I mean, we are talking about: Christophe Robin – Volumizing Paste (75ml), De Mamiel – Cleansing Dew (20ml), Malin + Goetz – Dark Rum Votive (67g), Odacite – Vital Glow (5ml), Omorovizca – Queen of Hungary Mist (30ml), Oribe – Mystify Spray (50ml)
,Ouai – Wave Spray (30ml), Sunday Riley – Luna (15ml), Tata Harper – Regenerating Cleanser (50ml), Votary – Toning Serum (50ml). Just wow.
Net-a-Porter, Another debut, first
As usual, there are quite a few new foundations out for SS, so let’s take a look at some of them.
The shades shown are: B20 Ivory, Fair R150 – fair w/ pink undertones, Barcelona – Medium 4 – medium with golden peachy undertones and 80 Ebony – very deep with neutral undertone.
This is the base I am personally mostly excited about as I am a huge fan of the Touche Eclat. I am also loving the promo image with Zoe Kravitz, obviously.
“Touche Eclat All-In-One Glow Tinted Moisturizer is a skin-loving, all-in-one medium coverage tinted moisturizer with SPF 23 that evens complexion, eliminates dullness and smooths fine lines. The finest pigments and ingredients that respect and care for the skin. The formula is oil-free, non-comedogenic, talc-free and dermatologist tested. The coverage is buildable from light to medium”.
DIOR Diorskin Forever Undercover Foundation, $52 from Nordstrom
“A 24-hour, ultra-fluid, water-based foundation blends full coverage with a lightweight formula to deliver a natural, matte finish that goes from day to night”.
I have already mentioned some fantastic new lip products that are out for Autumn 2017 but there are more!
“An innovative, liquified lipstick that takes liquid lip looks to the next level, with indulgently creamy wear, precise application, and high-pigment color with a satiny finish” This is basically a liquid version of their fantastic Amuse Bouche lipstick (I am a huge fan of those). There are 12 shades, and the ones shown are: Cava, Candies and Infuse.
Only last week I have posted about the new blushers but here are some new gorgeous releases.
The shades are: Orgasm, sheer, warm pink with golden shimmer; Dolce Vita, matte dusty rose; Luster, sheer golden apricot and Torrid, warm coral with golden shimmer
And how cool is it to have three shades for a price of one high-end blush? You can choose from:
Some collaborations are just meant to be, they are a perfect match. And NARS x Charlotte Gainsbourg is one of them, in my opinion. Charlotte fits the concept of the brand perfectly, and this collection looks great. Let’s take a look.
Multiple Tint, $39 in Jeanette (Sheer berry), Jo (Light pink) and Alice (Poppy red)
Hydrating Glow Tint, $36 in Fair, Light, Medium and Medium/Dark
“Easy glowing. Fresh-faced perfection, right at your fingertips. This limited-edition formula, awakens dull skin and evens out tone with sheer, buildable coverage. Its weightless, refreshing gel-cream delivers foolproof, brush-free application.” This sounds dreamy.
Matte Lip Pencil, $26 in London Clinic (Soft rose) and Blindfold (Burgundy)
Lip Tint, $26 in Éphélide (Antique rose), Promise (Red plum) and
