If you love beauty and you love advent calendars then you’ve probably considered getting yourself a beauty advent calendar. There are so many on the market, choosing which one to buy can be quite hard. When I was sent to review the new Charlotte Tilbury Beauty Universe calendar I was beyond excited!
The Charlotte Tilbury Beauty Universe Advent calendar is full of 12 full size and mini makeup and skincare products. Each of the products included ensure you are able to try some of Charlotte Tilbury’s iconic and award winning beauty products.
I’m quite a fan of the Charlotte Tilbury range. I love her lipsticks and her eye shadows too. I’ve tried a few of her products, so when I received her advent calendar I was pleasently surprised to see it included products I’ve always wanted to try from her range. Aside from the makeup I’m happy to see that she has included some of her most iconic skincare products including her Magic Cream and clay mask.
Now the advent calendar itself is quite different from your standard windows design. This is a glittery box in the iconic burgundy and gold Charlotte Tilbury colours. When you lift the lid of the box and open the doors on the front of the box you’re greeted with the most beautiful glittery gold drawers each filled with a surprise gift. The premise is to open a drawer every other day from the 1st December until Christmas day. The boxes are not labelled with numbers so feel free to pick whichever order you want! Let’s be honest though, I’ve opened all of the boxes (for the sake of review purposes of course!) and I can say now that you won’t be disappointed.
The box retails for £150, so it definitely is something to really consider before purchasing. Based on the products you receive I think receiving a few more full size items would have justified the high price tag a bit more, although it still is a great box.
What’s in the box?:
Mini Full Fat Lashes: (mini)
Eyes to Mesmerise in Jean: (cream eyeshadow in an oyster-Y Champagne Pink)
Colour Chameleon in Amber Haze: (an antiqued amber shade eyeshadow pencil)
Mini Rock ‘n’ Kohl in Bedroom Black: (an intense night-sky black kohl eyeliner)
Matte Revolution in Pillow Talk: (a full size of Charlotte’s iconic best-selling, award-winning dreamy nude-pink matte lipstick.)
Hollywood Lips in Screen Siren: (full-size ruby red matte liquid lipstick)
Travel Sized Multi Miracle Glow (15ml): (a 3-in-1 cleanser, mask and balm)
Travel Sized Charlotte’s Magic Cream (15ml): (award-winning moisturiser)
Travel Sized Wonderglow (15ml): (glow on-the-go!)
Travel Sized Take It All Off (15ml): (mini two-toned cleanser)
Travel Sized Supermodel Body (15ml): (super-hydrating body shimmer)
