The Countdown Is On, however the cost Is Up: The new benefit Candy-Coated Countdown advent calendar

I am totally that woman who opens every compartment in an advent calendar in one feel swoop.

Perhaps it’s my impatient curious nature.


It’s not even December yet, however I couldn’t wait to unlock the hidden treasures in this from Benefit, the Candy-Coated Countdown advent calendar ($99).

You’re “supposed” to open one compartment at a time, one per day, beginning on December very first for 24 days.

Tucked within each compartment resides a different beauty treasure…

But, uh, someone, as well as I’m not naming any type of names here, may or may not have damaged the rules with this one. This person may or may not have fiendishly opened every compartment with a quickness, as well as then dumped all o’ the beauty loot on the ground as well as took a photo of herself with the empty box held upside-down.

Benefit Candy-Coated Countdown advent Calendar, or crazy woman holding a giant rectangle…
I was truly looking ahead to this thing since benefit did something similar last year with their Countdown to like advent Calendar, which — objective accomplished! – Minä rakastin.

Like that one, this calendar contains a lot of travel-sized benefit faves, but, sadly, it’s likewise much more expensive…

Last year’s was $68, however this is $99.

And that’s not the only difference…

Last year’s set came with 21 pieces of makeup, a pendant with a charm, a hair tie as well as a hair clip, while this year’s set includes 18 pieces of makeup, three hair ties, two notepads as well as a pack of heart-shaped paperclips.

So they cut back a bit on the makeup however boosted the number of extras.

The $99 benefit Candy-Coated Countdown advent calendar includes…

0.25 oz “That gal” brightening deal with primer

0.25 oz the POREfessional pore minimizer

0.08 oz Benetint cheek as well as lip discolor in increased

0.08 oz Watt’s up! highlighter

Beauty sticky notes

Heart-shaped paperclips

Pinky, polka-dot hair tie

Elastic hair band with bow appeal

Needless to say, $99 isn’t as attractive as $68 was, at least not for what works out to be about the exact same number of products.

Despite that, I gotta admit that the cuteness factor right here is sky high, as well as with its red as well as eco-friendly accents, I believe this looks more Christmassy than the one last year.

Here’s the one from last year… It covered half my body like a glorious makeup blanket!
Plus, with this year’s — hello! — there’s a feline on compartment number six.


And you understand what they say… When you want to distract the masses from a $30 cost increase, put a feline on it.
