Day 1 of Blogmas: My Beauty Advent Calendar

I can't believe we are already at the last month of 2017, so much has happened this year yet I feel like it has flown by!

I thought I would tackle blogmas this year, as I have never done it but I have always wanted to, I have seen so many people do it previously, please be gentle with ay comments you leave I'm trying my best! Lets get to todays post..


This year, I decided to treat myself to a beauty advent calendar, and my friend Chloe, said that the LookFantastic beauty advent calendar was really good last year, so I thought that I would opt for that one, it was £79... yes £79 I know, but the contents of the calendar is worth over £300, so when you think about it that way, it is extremely justifiable. 

The calendar arrived so early, sometime in October so the struggle to not open it all up when it first arrived was very very real. But I hid it in my cupboard that I don't usually open to make sure I didn't get tempted! 

This is what the advert calendar looks like...


I absolutely love the design of the Lookfantastic calendar, and after I've opened all the drawers it will be the perfect storage box! It even has a mirror if you lift the top of the box, bonus right?

So, you're probably all wondering what I got for the 1st, and it was....

An Illamasqua Lava Lips Marbled Lipstick! When I opened it I was very intrigued, the design on the lipstick itself with the marble effect makes me not want to use it! The colour is perfect for Christmas too.


I'll be listing the other treats I get as the days go on in my other posts so be sure to check them out!

Have any of you got a beauty calendar? Do you think they're worth it?

  2. Great post! It's my first time doing Blogmas too this year! I'm so excited it's unreal. I kept debating about getting a beauty advent calendar, but in the end I didn't bother. Maybe it's something I should think more about getting one.
    I can't wait to read the rest of your posts. It's feeling a lot like Christmas already. :)
    Much love,

  3. This advent calendar looks insane! It's so worth buying a beauty one when you get good contents. I usually have the make up revolution one but I've had to say no this ear and stick to chocolate for saving money! Looking forward to see what you get every day!
