Re: 2018 Beauty Advent Calendars

This is the only advent calendar tempting me so far. Too bad I already own several of the products. I love the punk them Nars went with this year.

Re: 2018 Beauty Advent Calendars

Anyone else stumped by the choice to include two travel concelears in very different shades? Ones pink based and the other is yellow- it would take one special individual to be able to successfully utilize them both!! It seems like such a good value but that’s really throwing me off...

Re: 2018 Beauty Advent Calendars

@mermaid805 I’d guess a few reasons... 1. Highlighting or color correcting. 2. It’s a cult loved concealer so including it makes sense, but obviously one shade doesn’t fit all. If one doesn’t work, maybe the other will. It means sacrificing another product but having just one shade might deter people from buying the set. 3. Gifting. If someone is breaking the set up in to gifts, two people can get a concealer. 

 

Dunno if any of that is why, just my thoughts! 

Re: 2018 Beauty Advent Calendars

Does anyone know if Sephora will be receiving the Nars advent calendar?

Re: 2018 Beauty Advent Calendars

@Sansara Beautiful but expensive for gift giving. It seems to be a good value, though.

Hi @Ispend2much6,

 

I love this! Thank you so much for sharing. 

Best,

Rebecca 

Re: 2018 Beauty Advent Calendars

Definitely going for this @Ispend2much6

Re: 2018 Beauty Advent Calendars

@CC3616  I'm afraid if I ask my kids to get it as my Christmas gift I'll get roped into buying one for each of them. lol

Re: 2018 Beauty Advent Calendars

My mouth literally watered.

Re: 2018 Beauty Advent Calendars

@makeitup305   They definitely have good, fresh candy.

Re: 2018 Beauty Advent Calendars

Re: 2018 Beauty Advent Calendars

@lachaton I was really bummed to see the contents. I don’t know many people in my life who would enjoy them much. It’s a pass for me based on the description and the price:

 

This set contains:
- Sephora Collection Charcoal Nose Strip
- 0.26 oz/ 7.9 mL Creamy Blueberry Body wash capsule
- 3 x 0.63 oz/ 18 g Fizzy Cube in Peony, Cherry Blossom, Cotton flower

- 0.169 oz/ 5 mL Cream Lip Stain 01 Always Red
- 0.14 oz/ 4 g #LIPSTORIES 9 Labyrinth city
- Multi texture sponge
- Pocket Mirror
- Postable stickers
- 2 x Invisible Glitter Elastic Hairbands
- Nail file

 

I sure hope something better comes along. 

Re: 2018 Beauty Advent Calendars

I completely agree, @PinkEvergreen. I picked up the SC advent calendar last year (without reading spoilers) and I was very disappointed - especially with the cheaper items like stickers. I'll definitely be passing again.

 

The packaging is nice, but I'd really prefer to see Sephora highlight some of their great products (because there are some!), even if that did mean it was slightly more expensive. It's a really underrated brand, and I'd love to see it showcased. 

 

I'd love to see something like this for contents:

Spoiler
Cream blush or highlight stick (even a mini)
A cream lip stain in a colour other than Always Red
Eyeliners! The SC ones are so great. Throw in a couple minis in different shades - something pretty and showy for the holidays, and something neutral but not black like Flirting Game.
A sheet mask - I'd love to see one of the new holiday ones included. A couple of these would be great, or the hand/foot masks.
A makeup sponge - sure. It's fine.
The lipstories lipstick is a great idea, but I think it would be better if it was one of the holiday tubes.
Small travel pack or individual face wipes.
The SC brush cleaner! just a small bottle. 
Even some of the SC clay mask foils would be good for smaller items.
Travel mini brush or mini silicone glitter applicator. 

Re: 2018 Beauty Advent Calendars

@lachaton I agree 100%. I’ve been so happy with my Sephora Collection purchases this year, ranging from C$4 to C$25. I love gifting my favourites in baskets. This calendar misses so many opportunities for Sephora to self-promote. 

Re: 2018 Beauty Advent Calendars

@PinkEvergreen I think this is over-priced, too Smiley Sad  And nothing really caught my eye.

Re: 2018 Beauty Advent Calendars

@Lazybeautybeast in case you are still looking for it!

Re: 2018 Beauty Advent Calendars

Thanks @CC3616! I love going through this thread every year Smiley Happy

Thanks @CC3616! Has anyone seen anything about the Sephora one yet? I swear I saw a sneak peek picture somewhere but I can't remember where and I haven't seen anything since.
