I got two advent calenders in 2021; the Essence 24 sparkling moments of joy advent calender and the Sephora Favorites advent calender. Two calenders at two very different price points. You can check out the post I did on the Essence calender here, and now let’s talk about what the Sephora one contained.
Days 1-6 contained the following products: Fenty Beauty Diamond Bomb All-Over Diamond Veil in How Many Carats?!, Rare Beauty Lip Soufflé matte lip cream in Fearless, The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 (serum), Maroccanoil treatment, Tarte Maneater voluptuous mascara, and Fenty Skin Fat Water pore-refining toner serum. I already owned the Fenty Beauty Diamond Bomb, but it’s a nice product. I’m most excited to try the Rare Beauty lip cream and the Fenty Skin toner serum.
Days 7-12 contained the following products: Good Girl by Carolina Herrera (Eau De Parfum), Benefit Gimme Brow in 3, Erborian Milk & Peel mask, Patchology The Good Fight clear skin mini sheet mask, Huda Beauty Diamond Balm sparkly lip balm in Negligee, and Innisfree Hydrating Sleeping Mask with Green Tea. I used to own the Benefit Gimme Brow so I know I like that. I think the Perfume by Carolina Herrera is beautiful, and it’s smell really good as well.
Days 13-18 contained the following products: Respire natural face wash, Sephora Collection Glossed Vinyl Intense lip lacquer in 06 All-Powerful Red, Too Faced Damn Girl! Mascara, The Original Make Up Eraser, Olaplex Hair Perfector No. 3, and Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Freeze brow styling wax. You might have noticed how obsessed I am with the ABH Brow Freeze; I use it pretty much every day, so it’s nice to have a back up. I’ve already tried the The Original Make Up Eraser, and I actually thought it removed my make-up very well.
Days 19-25 contained the following products: Merci Handy cleansing spray – Lavender & Eucalyptus, Ren Evercalm gentle cleansing milk, Fresh Rose Deep Hydration face cream, Natasha Denona Baby Biba palette, RMS Beauty Buriti bronzer, Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution lipstick in Pillow Talk (original), and Juliette has a gun parfums – Not A Perfume + Carré Y perfume necklace. I’m actually pretty excited about most of these products, especially the Natasha Denona Baby Biba palette and the Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution lipstick in Pillow Talk. I’m also curious about the perfume necklace. I’ve never tried anything like that.
I admit that this calender is pricey, but I also think that it contains a nice variety of different types of products including both make-up, skin care, hair care, and fragrances. A handful of the products are full sizes, and I think the “minis” or travel sizes are generally very generous. I might consider getting the Sephora Favorites calender again in 2022.
