By Triedandtestedblogger @triedtestedblog

It's crazy to think that in just 7 weeks, it'll be Christmas! Advent Calendars just get bigger and better every year, and 2018 is no exception with more brands and retailers releasing their own.

I've picked out 10 of my favourites for 2018, based on value, packaging and overall appeal!

10 OF THE BEST BEAUTY ADVENT CALENDARS FOR 2018
NARS UNCENSORED ADVENT CALENDAR - $220AUD

In theme with their 2018 holiday collection packaging, this advent calendar features 24 amazing products in both mini and full size - ranging from blushes, to lip products (lip pencils, lip glides, lipsticks, lip pigments), a brush, primer, eyeliner and concealers (in the shades Vanilla and Custard for those wondering if the shades will suit them). It is definitely a lip heavy calendar with 14 lip products, however all the lip products I've tried from the brand, I love. Fabulous shades included for all the products, including best sellers - Orgasm, Laguna, Anita. This one might even be worthwhile to purchase with a couple of friends and then split up the products in there!

WHERE TO BUY: MECCA in store and online on November 8th.

CHARLOTTE TILBURY 'CHARLOTTE'S BEAUTY UNIVERSE' ADVENT CALENDAR - $295AUD

Luxuriously packaged, this 12 day calendar features a 6-6 split of makeup and skincare products that are both full size and travel size.

A great way to try out a wide range of CT products without committing to her full sized products.
