More beauty advent calendars are coming up on the market every year. This year I picked up the Splendor advent calendar by Nude By Nature***. It is only a 12-day calendar but at $135 of value 12 days is the perfect amount. I could have opened one every 2 days but I started on the first and opened every day.
Inside the Nude By Nature Advent Calendar
The advent calendar is rose gold themed throughout which I love. With 12 windows there is 12 days worth of goodies and the best part is they are travel size!
Day By Day Break Down
Day 1 was a pocket-sized mirror, perfectly palm-sized this mirror joined the 3 in my bag already! Day 2 was a 2 ml mineral concealer in medium. A tiny beauty blender was the day 3 item, perfect for concealer.
Day 4 was rose gold tweezers. I swear I lose my tweezers all the time so these are super handy to hide in an emergency kit. I can’t get enough of the Nude By Nature primer and mine is about to run out, Day 5 provided me with a 15 ml tube which will last me until I am ready to do a new haul from the website (30% off first order here until 31/12/16). Day 6 was a matchbook patch of nail files convenient for my handbag since i break a nail a week.
A mini brush was the item for day 7, easily fits into my eyeshadow brush kit this baby brush is good for the main colour. Coconut and Lime are such summer scents and day 8 provided a soy candle in a little travel tin of this scent. It improved the smell of my bed zone without being lit so I know the scents is going to be strong when I eventually light it. Day 9 was a sheer light illuminator, another 15ml tube i love mixing illuminator with my primers especially on lite makeup days.
One thing I can never seem to find is my eye and lip sharpeners. They’re the easiest thing in the world to lose. This week I looked everywhere for mine so the on from day 10 had excellent timing. Kabuki brushes are life. The mini one from day 11 is ridiculously mini however it pairs perfectly with the day 12 item. What would a nude by nature box be without the tradition mineral powder, Day 12 completed the advent calendar with a medium shade mineral powder. It’s a bit too dark for me, I’m light-medium, but I’m going to hang onto it for when summer tans me up!
