The only time I don’t care about seeing Christmas in October: makeup advent calendars. *swoon*


October 14, 2014 by Terumi

So it’s taking me all my willpower not to buy this advent calendar today, but I haven’t cleaned out my makeup drawer that I promised I would clean out before I bought any more makeup and I know my hubby would die if this giant box of new makeup shows up before I’m done. So if you missed this one last year, it is my favorite calendar , an advent calendar by Benefit and you can get it at Sephora online only,

and I dream about this one from Selfridges that I’ve never been able to get my hands on.

Anyways, if you love makeup and advent calendars, these won’t last long so I’m speedily cleaning away.  They’re usually sold out by November.  Happy Christmas in October and hopefully I’ll be able to get one too. xoxo.


  1. Now that is an Advent Calendar idea that I haven’t seen before!

      It’s pretty cool! I got one last year and got my guys lego ones, so it was nice opening our advent calendars together. It made me feel like I was a kid again:)

  2. What an interesting way to package make-up!

  3. what a cute idea!! We deserve a little fun too! <3

    Really interesting. I had no idea there was such a thing as an advent calendar with makeup. I wonder what other types are out there for the ladies 🙂 The illustrations on that one are lovely.

  5. What a neat idea! I’m all about Christmas and making it fun, even in October.

  6. Fun! I want one. That is definitely an advent calendar that I would love to have.
