Welcome to the start of a new week and for all of my American readers, a short one! Whether or not this is a normal week for you let’s start it off on a positive note – with a full review of the gorgeous Charlotte Tilbury Advent Calendar. As you may remember I have featured Charlotte’s makeup before on the blog and she has bene in the news quite a lot lately, from doing the makeup of the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in New York to being knighted by the queen here in England, and very well deserved.
Well this year the iconic British makeup brand has put together an epic advent calendar, which they call Charlotte’s Beauty Universe, packed full of the best makeup and skincare products for 12 days of amazing surprises. When I received the luxe package the first thing I was drawn to was the gold and maroon glitter and the heft of the box – you knew that good quality products would be hiding within there. But to my surprise the glitter was not only on the outside but on each individual drawer which held a tissue paper wrapped goodie.
Each drawer contains either a mini and full sized version of one of the brand’s best sellers including mascara, cream eyeshadow, an eyeshadow pencil, a night-sky black kohl eyeliner, a dreamy nude-pink matte lipstick. a ruby red matte liquid lipstick, a 3-in-1 cleanser, mask and balm that transforms the skin, a clay mask, a dewy primer, a two-toned cleanser, a body shipper, and Charlotte’s Magic Cream, the award-winning moisturiser will give you lustrous skin in an instant with ingredients that intensely moisturise your skin. You can read more on the website and if you decide to order Charlotte’s Beauty Universe it is free shipping and comes with samples, a double win!
And don’t take my word for it – Last month Harper’s called the Charlotte Tilbury Advent Calendar one of the best luxury advent calendars, so there you go. The best part? You don’t just have to be jealous that I got an advent calendar because I have teamed up with the Charlotte Tilbury team so a lucky reader can win one too – all you have to do is head over to Instagram, follow both the me, @kellydonlin, and the @ctilburymakeup account, and tell me why you would love to win either in an Instagram comment or a blog post comment here – it is as easy as that!
