Long time readers of my blog (or subscribers to my YouTube channel) know that I do not celebrate Christmas. You do know that first and foremost, I am a lover of all things beauty, and that the vast majority of my readers/viewers share this love as well. The vast majority of you also celebrate Christmas, so when the opportunity was offered to me to review the QVC 2016 Christmas Beauty Advent Calendar, I didn’t hesitate. It is chock full of all kinds of goodies that every beauty product junkie would want/need/love to have in her collection, and I thought it was a rather unique spin on a lovely Christmas tradition. It is my understanding that QVC does sell out of this product every year, so if this does interest you, you’ll want to get over to their website and order it as soon as you can! For those of you that want to know a little bit more about what’s inside, I will give you a quick rundown of all 24 products…but if you’re planning on buying this for yourself, click out now! You can also take a peek at the video if you want to hear a mini-review about most of the products too! I personally like that it has a nice selection of products I’m already familiar with and love, but it did introduce me to a number of other products that I’ve been curious about but haven’t had the opportunity to try.
Eyelash kit-complete with glue
Mally Full-Size More is More Mascara-I’m currently using this mascara and I love it! No flaking, no smudging, and my lashes look dark, full and long!
IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Pressed Powder-I love the smaller, travel size version! This is currently living in my makeup bag in my purse.
Nail file-This is no basic nail file…it files, smoothes, shines, etc.
Paula’s Choice 2% BHA Liquid-This product has a cult following. It’s a great chemical exfoliator.

Two Pinrose Fragrance Petals in either Merry Maker or Secret Genius fragrance

Nest Midnight Fleur Eau De Parfum-One of my all-time favorite fragrances and perfect for travel.
First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream-another product with a huge cult following
Compact mirror-comes with a normal side and a magnifying side, I’ve kept this in my purse too!
So what do you think? I know beauty themed Advent Calendars are really popular in the UK, but I haven’t seen much buzz about them over here in the United States. Is this something you would get for yourself or give as a gift? Did you get last year’s QVC Advent Calendar? Or do you prefer to stick with the more traditional versions? I’d love to hear more about how your family celebrates and observes your traditions!
