At Christmas time I tend to indulge myself a little.. Not usually being a make up or skin care type person I splurge and grab a beauty advent calendar. Partially strategic as the mini’s and full size products just about cover my makeup usage for the year, but mostly for the joy of it. I love surprizes.
I have brought both the 2016 and 2017 LookFantastic Advent Calenders; they are FANTASTIC value. This year’s design is a improvement from 2016’s as it doubles as storage for all your gifts! Perfect since storing all my new beauty gizmo’s turned out to be a struggle last year. The drawer design also allows you to remove a day without unwrapping it. A big up for those who don’t sleep in the same place every night, and don’t want to lug the box around.
So far I have unwrapped :
1 – Illamasqua lava marbled lipstick in vixen – the most wearable red/earth tone.
2 – Ciaté fierce flicks eyeliner – doesn’t smudge!
3 – Grow gorgeous scalp detox – detoxes as promised but leaves little exfoliating beads in your hair.
4 – First aid beauty ultra repair cream –wonderful for face and body.
5- Balance me micellular water – what is micellular water? This is amazing!
6 – This works in transit close up mask + primer + moisturizer. – This is the kind of product I often call bull on, and I’m calling it.
7 – James Read H20 tan mist – what kind of wizardry is this?? A tanning spray with sparkles? That smells nice??
8 – Redken No dry blow cream – adds nice texture.
9 – Bellepiere banana setting powder – love the name and I needed more setting powder too!
10 – Oskia renaissance mask – very excited to try this but will wait for an occasion (21st?)
11 – Molton Brown gingerlilly body wash – lots of people love molton brown, I think its all hype. Will regift.
12 – Caudalie vinosource moisturizing sorbet – ridiculously adorable!
12 down, 13 to go till Christmas!
Happy advent everyone xx
