Normally I’m quite a Scrooge where Christmas is concerned and only allow festive content on my blog from October onwards, but the many, many different beauty advent calendars have got me excited. I don’t know which ones I’m going to buy yet, but it’s interesting to see which brands are launching one. One I didn’t expect to see was the ELLE Beauty Advent Calendar 2019 that was announced only yesterday and launches on the 3rd October.
The ELLE Beauty Advent Calendar is currently on a pre-order only basis and it’s going to retail for £115 once it launches. However the contents will be worth £420 making it one of the best value advent calendars this year, especially as it contains TEN FULL SIZE products. I haven’t seen any buzz surrounding this calendar but it definitely deserves it if the sneak peak below is anything to go by…
“It’s official! The ELLE Beauty Advent Calendar for Christmas 2019 has finally landed. And we think you’re going to love it as much as we do. Back for a second year after 2018’s epic Richard Quinn advent calendar, 2019’s offering is packed full of 24 seriously luxe beauty products chosen by our editors and wrapped up in an exclusive design by Bella Freud (in a festive black and gold, no less).
Frankly, it’s the only beauty advent calendar you need on your lust list this Christmas. The best bit? It’s an absolute bargain. With a whopping 10 full size products and 14 cult beauty minis worth over £420 in total, you can get your hands on the best gift this festive season for just £115. Now that’s what we call a Christmas miracle.“
The ELLE calendar doesn’t have the most luxurious packaging as it has a black and gold cardboard design, however I’d much rather a brand put the money into the contents rather than the outer packaging anyway. There isn’t a full reveal of the contents, but there are a few products ELLE have listed as being guaranteed products inside the calendar:
- BELLA FREUD Fairytale of New York Candle
- NARS The Multiple Multi-Purpose Stick in Orgasm
- CHANTECAILLE Anti-Pollution Finishing Essence
- MARC JACOBS Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara
- HUDA BEAUTY Eazy Lash Harmony #17
- CLINIQUE Chubby Stick Moisturising Lip Colour Balm in Super Strawberry
- 111SKIN Rose Gold Brightening Facial Treatment Mask
- BENEFIT Precisely, My Brow Eyebrow Pencil
If you like the look of this calendar, head over to the ELLE website and pre-order now. It only went on pre-order today so there’s stock available when writing this but with contents like this, I imagine it’ll be a quick sellout!
