In my mind, you know Christmas is on its way when A) The Coca Cola advert rears its cheery, fizzy head on t'telly B) Boots brings out its 3 for 2 gift sets, and C) Advent calendars make their way onto supermarket shelves.
But hey, this (below) isn't any old Advent Calendar. It's an
M&S Adve...Advent calendar with a difference. This one features make-up in mini form and its from everyone's favourite retro-inspired brand Benefit.
How lovely to wake up each morning, not to a tasteless old chocolate, but to a mini lip gloss or cheek highlighter. Oh the festive joys.
While it may be a damn sight more expensive (at around £50, I believe) than your average Advent calendar, it certainly offers much more by the way of surprise. What do you reckon?
Coming soon on the blog...My thoughts on the brand Skunkfunk, Christmas giveaways (not long now...) and a whole lot of beauty reviews.
