I decided to buy the Essence advent calender again this year, because it’s cute and fun and affordable. Last year’s calender included quite a few non beauty/make-up related items, which I’m not the biggest fan of, so I liked this year’s calender a lot better. Here are the items it included.
The first six items in the calendar were a luminous blush, a lip scrub, an eyeshadow base, nail jewellery stickers, a lipstick, and a mirror. I think the packaging on the items this year is super cute, and I’m especially excited to try the luminous blush.
The next six items were a brow spoolie, a mini nail primer, an I Love Extreme volume mascara, precise concealer sponges, a moisturizing hand mask, and a kajal pencil eyeliner. We got the mascara and eyeliner in last year’s calender as well, so I wish we would’ve gotten something different this year.
The second to last six items were the following: Face jewellery, eyeshadow blender (brush), mini nude nail polish, sparkle nail file, Juicy Bomb shiny lipgloss in 01 Proud Pitaya, and hair ties duo. I’m most interested in trying the lipgloss.
And the last six items in the calender were an eyeshadow shader (brush), caring lip balm, lash curler, mini fix & gloss top coat, brush cleansing tool, and a highlighter.
Overall, I think this was a very nice calender, and I think I’ll get use out of most of the items. I purchased a second beauty calender this year as well, which I’ll do a post on in the very beginning of the new year.
