Advent Calendars For Beauty Addicts 2014

Advent Calendars seemed to have upped there game the past couple of years! I started to really notice them last year, i started to get a bit jealous that girls (or guys, lets not be stereotypical now) were opening a new beauty product, each morning before Christmas.

So what has 2014 got to offer?

A nail polish lovers dream. There is 24 doors to open, full of festive manicure goodness. Inside there is 17 of Ciate's most popular shades, along side five textured polishes, festive nail transfers and one full sized paint pot. 

This retails at £49 (Out now!)
(If you attend the Clothes Show in Birmingham, they often have this marked half price at the Ciate stall!)

This was the advent calendar i lusted after last year. This also has 24 doors, which means 24 amazing benefit products! I have owned a few Benefit travel sized products before and they last ages. Even the packaging of this makes me so excited, its so bright and fun looking! It will be sold in selected Debenham's stores and also on the Benefit website and is out now!

This retails for £60 (and has a value of £109 inside)

Selfridges advent calendar says it will 'take you on 24 self-binding adventures'. Inside there is lots of different high end brands such as, Shu Uemura, YSL, Kiehl's and much, much more! This is definitely on the more luxury end of the scale!

Retails at £85

Primark - Beauty Calendar

Yes, thats right, even Primark have jumped onto the beauty advent calendar band wagon this year! I think it mainly consists of nail varnishes, but whats not to love for only £15? (There is also a 12 day one which is even cheaper!!)

Retails for £15

Now for something a little bit different, this isn't technically an advent calendar. I just found it so super cool that i had to put it in for all those lush fans out there! Lush have brought out a 12 days of christmas book. I think you would more class this as a gift set rather than an advent calendar, but lets be honest, do we always use things the way they are meant to be used? No. Inside the book is 12 of the most popular products from lush, and what a better to way to spend every day up until Christmas?

Retails at £49.95

You can find a direct link to each individual advent calendar on the underlined title of each one. This is of course, except for Primark as they don't have an online shop. 

Will you be moving away from chocolate this year and towards some beauty goodies?
