The Perfect Advent Calendar for Us Beauty Addicts!

The holiday season is upon us, and I am completely ready to embrace it! When I was a younger, sassy little girl, my parents used to get fun advent calendars for my sister and I. I always loved them; they made the Christmas countdown even more fun. Back then, the calendars usually housed pieces of chocolate, or other fun knick knacks.

Now that I'm an adult, my choice in advent calendars has changed a bit.

This year, I'm all about Benefit's ridiculously awesome Cosmetic Advent Calendar from Sephora. As you count down the days, you find fabulous beauty must-have minis. I'm a sucker for mini makeup products anyway, as it's a great way to try out a product before purchasing the full-size version.  Another bonus? Because the items are smaller, you can easily throw a few in your purse for beautifying on the go!

The set contains the following:
- 0.25 oz “That gal” brightening face primer
- 0.25 oz the POREfessional pore minimizer
- 0.08 oz Benetint cheek and lip stain in Rose
- 0.08 oz High beam liquid highlighter
- 0.08 oz Chachatint lip and cheek stain in Sheer Mango
- 0.08 oz Posietint lip and cheek stain in Poppy Pink
- 0.04 oz Stay flawless foundation primer
- 0.1 oz They’re real! mascara
- 0.22 oz Ultra plush lip gloss in Dandelion
- 0.22 oz Ultra plush lip gloss in A-lister
- 0.22 oz Ultra plush lip gloss in Fauxmance
- 0.14 oz BADgal lash mascara
- 0.08 oz Stay don’t stray concealer and eye shadow primer in Light/Medium
- 0.1 oz Fakeup concealer in 02 Medium
- 0.1 oz It’s potent! eye cream
- 0.3 oz Total moisture facial cream
- 0.08 oz Ooh la lift eye cream
- 0.08 oz Watt’s up! highlighter
- Beauty sticky notes
- Doodle pad
- Heart-shaped paperclips
- Pinky, polka-dot hair tie
- Elastic hair band with bow charm
- Metallic silvery hair tie


I know from experience that the products in this set are all incredible. Each calendar is $99. It sounds a bit pricey, but you're actually getting a lot for your money. This is also a great gift to give any makeup loving gal you might know.

Let the countdown begin!
