Can you believe that it’s almost Christmas? 2017 seems to have flown by so quickly! There are lots of exciting Advent Calendars out this year and I’ve rounded up my top 15 for you below!

2017 best beauty makeup skincare advent calendars

NYX PROFESSIONAL MAKEUP Lippie Countdown Advent Calendar – $89. A gorgeous one for all the lipstick lovers out there, this year the NYX Calendar includes 24 of their lipstick shades in a range of shades and formulas – from the soft matte lip cream to the butter gloss.

MECCA COSMETICA The MECCA Spectacular – $165. Featuring 12 great products from their own in house line, it comes beautifully packaged in this year’s artistic collaboration. The products included range from skincare to makeup and beauty tools.

Dusk 12 Days of Scents Candle Set – $69.99. If you don’t want to splurge on the Diptyque Calendar, Dusk has a beautifully presented one which features candles in coloured votives.

Look Fantastic Advent Calendar – 79 GBP. Firstly, let’s take a moment to appreciate how stunning this calendar is! With brands like Illamasqua, Elemis, Caudalie and Oskia, it’s worth the splurge in my eyes!

Soap & Glory It’s A Calendar, Girls – $74. Great sized body, hand and foot creams alongside makeup bits and a range of eyeliners I’ve been told are amazing, this advent calendar is beautifully packaged.

Charlotte Tilbury Naughty and Nice Magic Box – $295. For a bit of luxury, this calendar features 12 best sellers from the brand, 6 makeup products for lips and eyes and 6 skincare products for face and body.

Clinique Advent Calendar – $165. I adore the brand’s skincare and this year’s advent calendar has a great mix of best sellers to new bits like their pep start range. It also features a full sized makeup brush, 6 makeup products and a fragrance.

DIPTIQUE Advent Calendar – $570. Nothing much to say about this one – absolutely AMAZING and oh so luxurious but it is pricey! Perhaps make it a combined Christmas/Birthday gift deal so that someone special can buy it for you!

Ethique 12 Days of Christmas Calendar – $54.95. For soap fans, Ethique is offering its vegan, cruelty free range of soaps in a cute limited edition Xmas tree advent calendar. If you know someone who adores natural skincare products, this is a great one for them.

The Body Shop 25 Days Ultimate Advent Calendar – $200. TBS are offering 4 different advent calendars and I think, why not go big since it is Christmas. The Ultimate version features skincare products ranging from 30-100mL, festive makeup bits and a super cute bunny headband.

Kiehl’s Advent Calendar – $85.  Featuring their top selling skincare products, this calendar will have you looking amazing for all the parties as it covers face masks to moisturisers and everything in between.

Ciate 12 Days of Ciate London – $86. As an alternative to their annual mini mani month, the brand has launched a makeup advent calendar filled with lovely little makeup products and tools. The products do come in just the pans however, so you will need your own Z-palette to put them into.

L’Occitane Luxury Advent Calendar – $165. Valued at $215, this calendar is available alongside the brand’s regular advent calendar. The included products are of a great size, with many 30-35mL.

Bare Mineral Box Of Wonders – $115. For fans of mineral makeup, this calendar features 24 gifts with a great mix of base, eye and lip products. All the shades of the products look absolutely stunning – perfect for the festive season and throughout the year.

Ole Henriksen 12 Days of Glow – $99. For fans of the skincare brand, this calendar features 12 best sellers in their new packaging. The product sizes are great and it’s a fabulous way to try out the brand for the first time.


An honourable mention goes to the ASOS Advent Calendar which is unfortunately sold out. Amazing value with a great range of brands – it also includes a FOREO Luna Play device, which I love! You can find my review on the FOREO Luna 2 device here.

The Essie and Benefit Cosmetics Advent Calendars wont be released in Australia this year.
