Christmas Beauty Advent Calendars: Benefit Cosmetics, Bare Minerals, and Tanya Burr Cosmetics

So since becoming obsessed with makeup last year I have wanted to get advent calendars from various beauty brands. And last year by the time I wanted to get them after reading so many blogs, they were completely sold out. So this year, as I saw them show up on the new list I bought as many as I could. And yes it's a big chunk of change, but I am so excited to open these throughout the month leading up to Christmas. The calendars that I managed to get my hands on were: Benefit Cosmetics Girl O' Clock Rock, Bare Minerals Countdown to Gorgeous, and Tanya Burr 12 Days of Christmas.

As I really want to open these throughout the month, I'm not opening all the doors now. And for warning for the end of the month when I do all my favorites, I wouldn't doubt if all of these ended up in my favorites for the month. So look forward to that insanely long post/video.

I have tried a few of these products before because I got a sample when I purchased this so I do know at least for a few of these I'm going to really enjoy it. Others I have never tried but am very curious to try them. And I'm holding myself off from going to the store or look it up to see what any of these look like so I can be surprised.

Tanya Burr 12 Days of Christmas

As I live in the US, I ordered this from FeelUnique and I can't wait to try all of these. I got this for $35 and similar to the Benefit Cosmetic calendar, there for twelve products inside:

  • Glitter Rain Nail Polish
  • Sleigh Bells Nail Polish
  • Glitter Gold
  • Aurora Lip Gloss
  • Christmas Stocking Matte Lip
  • Berry Pavlova Lip Gloss
  • Snow Day Glitter Pot
  • Champagne Sparkle Glitter Pot
  • Ice Crystals Glitter Liner
  • Treasured Glitter Liner

I love that this is a glittery edition as I really have been into shiny makeup lately.

If you've tried any of these products before, let me know what you think of them. And let me know if you got any other beauty calendars yourselves for this Christmas season.
