We’re in November which means it’s officially acceptable to blast the Christmas playlist (haters, back off.)
It’s also the time to get on board the beauty advent calendar train. Yes, it may seem early but they sell out fast and unlike the chocolate versions, won’t melt in the heat.
Deck the halls with MAKEUP friends, as we’ve rounded up the best beauty advent calendars on the market, whatever your budget.
1.Mecca Cosmetica The Mecca Spectacular, $165.
This is the first year Mecca has brought out their own beauty advent calendar and boy, does it deliver. Stuffed full of products from their own luxe Mecca Cosmetica range, the twelve door box includes a mini of their excellent To Save Face Superscreen SPF50+ and Lit From Within Primer as well as mini Micellar Water, highlighter and tweezers.
2. David Jones Beauty Advent Calendar, $39.95
If you're looking for an option under $50, this is a good place to start. Another twelve days of Christmas option, this one will fill (or restock!) your makeup bag.
3. The Body Shop 24 Days of Beauty Advent Calendar, $100.
How does opening either a full size, mini or limited edition beauty treat for the whole of December sound? (spoiler: EXCELLENT).
