Paul & Joe Advent Calendar // Calendar Countdown


- Discover an assortment of treats this holiday season with Make Up Collection 2018 12 Days of Christmas. Featuring Paul and Joe fashion designer Sophie’s two cats Jypsy and Nounette, this beautifully illustrated calendar contains 12 limited-edition surprises, including lipstick, powder and hand lotion.

How is it different to last years?

I couldn't find an advent last year so I don't have the contents to compare to. Unfortunately as there is no set contents list it make it harder to figure out what you'll be receiving. So far it lists a Lipstick, Powder and Hand Lotion but no indication to shades or scents. I really like the design, featuring the designers two cats was an adorable notion to go with but although it's sweet, festive and it stands out, it doesn't say to me it has makeup items in it. I'd think this was body products.

Is it worth the price?

Priced at £56.00 this works out to £4.66 an item which is pretty standard for a makeup or skincare item you'd find in an advent calendar. You will basically pay for what you get but that's the big question; what will you receive? I find brands that do this and have no contents list on the selling website will deter some people from wanting to buy it. It's a shame because Paul & Joe are an amazing brand and I really like them. 

What do you think of the advent design? Are you disappointed there wasn't a contents list?

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...
