beauty gifts

Christmas is coming! Aren’t you excited? I’m definitely in the festive mood and already started thinking about gift ideas, holiday attire and beauty looks. It might be a tiny bit early to start talking about Christmas since Halloween is still days away but I can’t help it especially after discovering so many beauty advent calendars that launched or will be launching this year. Now last year, we saw a lot of different calendars come from the UK (Boots, Ciate, etc) and one from the U.S. but that sure has changed this year. Benefit Cosmetics is back with a new one and U.S. brands Tarte, The Body Shop, and even QVC have now jumped on the trend which means more calendars to lust over and snatch up.

Check out the 12 best beauty advent calendars for Christmas 2014!

1. The Body Shop 24 Days of Joy
