With just over a week to go until December 1st, the day we all look forward to opening that first door on our advent calendar, I take a look at some of the best advent calendars out there this year .
 
Every single year Mum has always bought an advent calendar for me and it’s always been a beautiful most scenic of calendars, filled with beautiful illustrations so in tradition one of my favourites that I’ve come across this season has to be the Five Dollar Shake department store wintery scene, with shoppers doing their christmas shopping and santa with his reindeers in the sky.
 
In at number two has to be the Charlotte Tilbury book of magic, this is a great calendar for the beauty products lover or someone with a few pieces of Charlotte Tilbury’s range who wants to try out a more extensive collection.
I for one have been desperate to try her skin care products and some new shades from her lipstick range. If you are like me and want to try more then this is a great pre Christmas treat with 12 fully loaded doors of beauty magic.
 
In at number 3 is the L’Occitane beauty calendar, now I’ll be honest here I’ve chosen this one simply just for it’s beautiful parisian style festive illustrations. I’ve never tired L’Occitane products so I can’t give a true report on this one but if like me you too would like to try their products then at just £39 this one is a real bargain with a wide range of products to trail.
 
At number 4 is the Diptyque calendar, now who doesn’t love a candle burning beautiful scents around their living room when chilling out…. this brand is a bloggers fave, this one also has dual useage usage as some beauty bloggers I have noticed clean out their candles from the glass pots and use them to store their make up brushes in. 

YSL Spring Colour Variation Palette!

The YSL Colour Variation Palette may have been about for a few months now however I only just received mine recently when I was given it as a birthday gift.
 
This is such a beautiful palette with 10 gorgeous shades which range from nudes, frost  to matte, each of the eye shadows are ever so easy for application due to their ever so silky smooth texture. The palette’s shades were inspired by this Spring/Summer’s YSL fabric swatches and oh what a beautiful collection of colours they are.
I love nothing more than an eye shadow that only needs one application due to being so highly pigmented and that you don’t need to add numerous layers of it to get the full richness of colour that is displayed in the palette, these beauties last a full day and keep their depth of colour and shimmer, for that reason alone I would highly recommend you to get your mitts on one of these beauties soon. 
 
I wear mine both quite natural and minimal for work day make up and more glitzy and more intense smokey look for an evening out, if you’re going away and need to pack minimal cosmetics this is the ideal palette to take with you as there’s something for every occasion in the beauty. 
 
YSL describe this palette as having the “Highest chromatic power and with a texture that binds to the eyelid”.
 
Following a few other naughty yet irrisistable, can’t stop thinking about purchases recently from YSL I am now a self confessed YSL beauty addict… so this should prove to be a pretty costly addiction, err oops!
