Tanya Burr Cosmetics 12 days of Christmas beauty calendar

I might be approaching my mid-30s but for as long as I can remember my mum has always bought me a chocolate advent calendar. She won't be buying me one this year as I no longer live at home (I finally managed to move out this year six years after I first planned to!) and I didn't have an advent calendar lined up at all, chocolate or otherwise. I recently received an email saying there were a few of Tanya Burr's advent calendars* available, so I jumped at the chance as I haven't tried any of Tanya Burr's products yet and have never had a proper beauty advent calendar either, only one my boyfriend created for me one year (which was so sweet).

This one has been a bit of a bugger to photograph, both for my post and for Instagram, because as pretty as it is it's very pastel and kept coming out very washed out. The design is very pretty featuring a pastel blue town house with pink windows, gold accents and Christmasy additions such as a wreath on the door and a snowman. 

As much as I want to open the whole thing right now to see what's in there and to show you, I know I'll regret it later when I have nothing to open. So what I will do is open the doors day by day and pop a picture on my Instagram to show the product behind each door. This is only a 12 day calendar, so I wasn't sure when I should actually be starting it, but after asking for advice on Twitter I've decided to start on the 1st December and open a door every-other-day. I believe you are supposed to start a 12 day calendar 12 days into December, but obviously I can't wait that long!

I won't tell you the shades included (although I believe some are special Christmas shades based on the names) but you will find three nail varnishes, two lip glosses, two glitter pots, two glitter liners, one matte lip product, one nail file and a mirror. I've particularly liked the look of a couple of Tanya's nail varnishes so I'm looking forwarding to discovering those. Don't forget if you want to see what is behind each door hop over and follow me on Instagram.

The Tanya Burr Cosmetics 12 days of Christmas beauty calendar is £25 and can be found online at FeelUnique and also on the Superdrug website where it is currently reduced but also out of stock. 

Do you have an advent calendar this year? Which one do you have?

    1. I was lucky I received this one as a sample or I wouldn't have had anything but there are a couple I really wish I'd picked up such as one of The Body Shop ones and the Look Fantastic one x
