How is it different to last years?

This is a brand new advent for this year. Teaming up with Latest In Beauty, ELLE magazine have surprisingly released probably one of the best advents of this year. Going for this gorgeous green and blue floral pattern the advent features a variety of makeup, skincare and other beauty items, 8 of them being full sized! It's a shame this isn't as festive in design but I can forgive that as the contents are so good and include a few cult beauty favourites like the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara and the Nars Orgasm Blush. 

Is it worth the price?

At £125.00 this is an indulgent buy but with a £340 contents worth you are getting so much more back than what you pay. As this is expensive I always say look through the content list and really think how many of the products you'd use before purchase. It's not worth paying so much for only half the contents. I do however find this to be a great advent and I'd recommend it on the basis of whether you would get use from all of the products.

Were you surprised to see ELLE Magazine with their own advent? Do you think this will start a trend of other magazines collaborating on advents?

I am doing another month of #CalendarCountdown, I'd love to know what you think of all the different advents and you can find me on FacebookTwitter & Instagram. Use the hashtag #CalendarCountdown if you have one of these advents or if you have your own way of counting down to Christmas.

As always, thanks for reading...
