Best of the Beauty Advent Calendars

Now that Halloween and Bonfire Night are over, we can officially start getting Christmassy. With just 7 weeks to go till the big day, and less than 30 days till the 1st December, it’s time to start thinking about presents, wrapping paper and eating your body weight in chocolate. Along with the excitement of being able to listen to Christmas songs on repeat for hours on end, comes the excitement of advent calendars. There’s just something about being greeted with a little surprise treat every morning that sets your day off to a good start.

Recently we’ve seen the ever-growing trend of beauty advent calendars, and here at EGO HQ we just can’t get enough! Whilst some of them are rather pricey compared to your standard £2 chocolate one, you can’t not admit that what they contain is amazing. Who wouldn’t want to open the door to a mini Nars lipgloss in the morning! Without further ado, here’s the lowdown of our top 5 beauty advent calendars; no matter what your budget.

1. The Liberty Beauty Advent Calendar, £165.

The Queen Bee of the beauty advent world is this rather pricey number from Liberty. Packed full of goodies from the likes of Nars, Bobbi Brown, Laura Mercier, Diptyque, Votar and Dermalogica; this one doesn’t cut short on luxury items. Well, you wouldn’t expect anything less from Liberty.

2. Selfridge’s Eclectic Little Luxuries Advent Calendar, £95.

Slightly less expensive than Liberty’s offering but still just as incredible is this one from Selfridge’s. We think this might be our favourite out of the bunch. It includes brands such as Urban Decay, Kiehls, YSL, Lancome and Victor and Rolf.

3. ASOS Beauty Advent Calendar, £50.

Not only does this one contain a whole load of treats from the likes of Nip + Fab, Nuxe, Elemis, Philosophy and Burt's Bees, but it comes in the cutest marble packaging. You know we’re a sucker for marble so this one definitely wins the best box award in our eyes.

4. Feel Unique’s Magic of Beauty Advent Calendar, £30.

Slightly easier on the wallet, this one from Feel Unique comes in some pretty gold fairy-inspired packaging which is super festive. This one contains products from Laura Geller, Percy & Reed, Decléor, Rimmel and even a full size of our fave ever lip balm from Nuxe.

5. Makeup Revolution’s Beauty Advent Calendar, £30.

Everyone’s favourite budget brand is back this year with their killer advent calendar packed full of their bestselling beauty products. Whilst this one isn’t quite as luxury as the others, it’s still a pretty good deal for your money as you get 24 full sized bestsellers including 6 lipsticks, 2 lipglosses, 2 blushers, 3 eyeshadows and plenty more. Not bad going.

Feeling excited for Christmas now? So are we! Don’t forget before then though, we have Black Friday where we’ll be bringing you #EGOSQUAD babes plenty of sassy deals throughout the day and the whole of Cyber Weekend too. Stay tuned!
