Christmas 2014 – Benefit Cosmetics Advent Calendar

Last year (2013), I was given the Benefit Advent Calendar by a dear friend, and it was like all my dreams come true. I love Christmas, and I love makeup, and I blame my friend Larah for my new obsession with beauty related advent calendars! This year, there are a number of amazing beauty related advent calendars being released, and I wanted to share them with you. Today I’m starting with the one that got me hooked in the first place – Benefit Cosmetics.

This year the calendar looks like a cute and Christmassy candy and cake shop. It’s worth noting that this advent calendar isn’t small by any stretch of the imagination, but the design is so cute, it’ll just become a part of your Christmas decor.

It’s jam packed with deluxe sample sizes of Benefit Cosmetics products, as well as a few cute surprises, and if that’s all you need to know, then don’t read any further – I’ll be revealing the contents of the calendar below.

Oh, and if you want one, be quick, they’re available now, and they sell out FAST!


I had a few criticisms of last years calendar – namely, that it did not contain any of Benefit’s newer releases, and I would have liked a full size product on the 24th of December. The first issue they have rectified, including a few recent releases in the line-up. The 24th is still a sample sized product, but I wouldn’t let that stop me from taking this baby home.

If you’re keen to know exactly what you’ll get in the Benefit Candy Coated Countdown Advent Calendar, I’ve outlined it below (in no particular order – got to keep an element of surprise in there somewhere!)
