I know it's early, and I'm sorry. But I couldn't help it. I mean, this. Surely a Benefit Advent Calendar, stocked with 24 mini makeup treats to uncover one by one from December 1st to 24th, is every makeup fan's dream.
Definitely a sure-thing gift for the under-30 set, I'd say it's also good bet for a fair number of women who count birthdays past 40. The Benefit Advent Calendar isn't the first of its kind -- Lancôme does one for Selfridges, and L'Oréal teamed up with a beauty box company to do one last year. And this year's Ciaté advent calendar of Mini Mani nail polishes is beyond sweet. There haven't been many overall, though. Given Benefit's playful personality, a Benefit Advent Calendar should become an annual special edition, don't you think?
If you'd rather be surprised each and every day beyond December 1st, avert your eyes. The Benefit Advent Calendar houses travel-size versions (practical and totes adorbs) of Benefit Cosmetics hits including Coralista, Hoola and Dandelion face powders; Benetint, Posietint and Chachatint; HighBeam and SunBeam; The POREfessional; Ultra Plush Lip Gloss; and skincare samples too.
Of course you'll need to pick up a gift for December 25th, and it'll have to top this 24-day opening act.
