Beauty Advent Calandars 2013

It's not long now, just 27 days until we will be opening the first door of our advent calendars. The question is though, which advent calendar will be gracing your dressing table? Will you be going traditional with a chocolate treat or splurge on an exclusive beauty calendar? This will be the first year that I've bothered to even take any notice of the calendars; I've not even had a chocolate one in over 10 years!
There has been one I've had my eye on since I heard of it's inception. It goes on sale TODAY at 12 noon. Do you know which one I'm talking about? If you are yet to buy yours read on to see the beauty calendars available to buy.

"Every girl's diary can now be filled with a daily dose of delectable mini nail treats, as behind each door lies a very colourful surprise. Gorgeously packaged with seventeen of Ciaté's bestselling mini Paint Pots, four mini Caviar blends, and three extremely special exclusive Paint Pot glitter shades you'll not find anywhere else, ever."

The calendar contains 17 of the best-selling shades in mini Paint Pots, 4 mini Caviar blends, and 3 exclusive Paint Pot Glitter shades.

This was the first calendar I heard about last year. Every blogger seemed to have their mitts on them. I myself am not a fan of nail polishes as they just don't last on me. This would be perfect for the nail art lover.. At £42 it's one of the cheapest I've heard of and at that price won't be hanging about long.

It's exclusively available at Selfridges stores and online - LINK

Selfridges Beauty Advent Calendar - £84 

"Selfridges' exclusive bijoux Christmas advent calendar brings you the best in beauty. From Viktor & Rolf, Yves Saint Laurent, Kiehl's and Giorgio Armani to Lancôme and Maison Martin Margiela, you can discover a precious treat behind every door to make you dazzle, sparkle and shine this festive season."

Unfortunately at the time of posting this the calendar is currently out of stock. This is on the expensive side but does contain high end products, mostly from Lancome (a fav among bloggers). It's been a very popular calendar and I have no idea if it will be stocked again so keep your eyes peeled.

Exclusive to Selfridges stores and online - LINK.
Benefit Advent Calendar -Countdown To Love - £50

"Our one-of-a-kind advent calendar comes in a show-stopping Pop Art box and is filled with 24 fun and flattering beauty treasures! It contains a bevy of Benefit bestsellers and three glitzy little look goods…a charm necklace & bracelet and an adorable barrette. It’s the gift that gets more gorgeous every day!"
This is Benefits FIRST advent calendar. It goes on sale TODAY at 12 noon and is the one I've been holding out for. Not only does the calendar include beauty items, it also has a charm bracelet, a necklace and a barette. At just £2.08 per door it's a bargain considering how expensive Benefits products are. So £50 is a true bargain for this brand and I hazard a guess it will sell out within the hour of going on sale.
Available to buy Nov 3rd at 12 noon from Benefits website - LINK.
"Wake up every morning to a new beauty treat and fill the month of December with gorgeous gifts to pamper yourself from head to toe. Featuring brands such as; Soap & Glory, Nails Inc, Paco Rabanne, Juicy Couture, Rimmel, Mavala, Umberto Giannini and many more...."

This is also currently OUT OF STOCK. Contents are said to be worth £65 and there are a fair few nail related products within it's contents. You're getting your moneys worth with this and it's one of the cheapest beauty calendars on the market. If you want to know the contents a blogger has opened it for you.. *spoiler alert* LINK
Available exclusively at Boots stores and online - LINK.
"The only thing better than chocolate this Christmas, introducing the YOU Beauty Discovery Advent Calendar with a difference..."
YOU have done it again and brought out another calendar. Sorry about the fuzzy image I couldn't find a clear one that wasn't tiny. WORTH OVER £240 but yours for just £49.95! Contains 24 premium brands such as Caudalie, ESPA, Dermalogica and Stila (to name a few). This is the essential box for beauty enthusiasts. If you aren't a member though there is a £4.95 postage fee which bumps the box over the £50 mark.
Available (and surprisingly still in stock) exclusively online - LINK.

Unfortunately I've heard that Liz Earle won't be bringing out an advent calendar again this year but there are so many more alternatives to choose from. Which one will you get your hands on? Have you heard of any others I haven't mentioned?
