Well, it’s that time of year again.

Yes, it’s November. And what does that mean for the consumer goddess within us all? It’s time to race out (or onto your computer) and nab your beloved 2022 Beauty Advent Calendar for your favorite brand before they are all gone into thin air.

Yes, quicker than I can say, Charlotte Tilbury Advent Calendar, they will no longer exist. Like a gadget from a James Bond film, something about self-destructing? No? Moving on. Ahem.

But in truth, many of my usual faves have indeed sold out already.

So, in the meantime, let’s indulge and take a look at the relatively new phenomenon that is the beauty advent calendar. Here


When I was a kid, we were happy just to get an advent calendar with a chocolate behind each door. It was so much fun!

But look how far we have come.

You can now give (or get, let’s not deny it!) some of the best crowd favorites and high-end luxury beauty brands for a very reasonable price, so why wouldn’t you?

Perhaps that goes some way to explain why they are such commodities every year and so hard to obtain before they are all gone from stores.

Let’s take a look at some of my favorites for 2022. And this is your warning: there are spoilers ahead!!

Benefit Sincerely Yours Advent Calendar


Benefit Sincerely Yours 2022 Advent Calendar

Benefit’s contribution to the 2022 Advent Calendar race features some of their best-selling and fan-favorite goodies.

I’ve got my fingers crossed that means some of their gorgeous Hoola Bronzing Powder or Boing Cakeless Concealer, or possibly my most active Benefit kit member – the Pore-fection Pore filler. I lose count of how many tubes of this gem I go through. A LOT!

I also love that you can actually keep and re-use the box it all comes in.

As much as I love advent calendars, the waste produces is torturous, so there’s one plus from benefit’s offering.

Great value and another fun contender.
