[productsample/affiliatelink] I can see November on the horizon so I have a few more advent calendars to show you over the next couple of weeks. First up is the SpaceNK offering that has ‘advent’ nowhere near it, as it’s set out as a beauty library or anthology meaning that it bypasses any connotations with Christmas or religion – i.e. it’s making no assumptions about who buys or why they buy.
In fact, even the colours are only vaguely alluding to the festive season – and there’s nothing external implying gender either. It’s the most woke advent calendar of all time and I love it! As you can see, the ‘volumes’ are split into categories: Seasonal Stars, The After-Party, Ready, Set, Sparkle and All Dressed up so you have an indication of what might be in the boxes within.
The boxes themselves are ‘chapters’ so if you’re a book lover and a beauty lover, it’s the dream combination. Each box gives a little clue of what might be inside.
20% OFF MAC + FREE GIFT WITH £55 SPEND
Celebrate the start of party season with 20% off plus a FREE GIFT when you spend £55. Features 4 M·A·C icons & limited-edition makeup bag, worth over £35. For limited time only!
I don’t fully unbox advents – exactly what’s inside is fully available in the link – but it is nice to have a taster of the contents and I’m putting SpaceNK’s own picture of contents right at the bottom so if you don’t want to see, stop scrolling! I still think that the fun of advents is not knowing what you’re going to find. Am I old-fashioned? As you can see, there’s a little Charlotte Tilbury Wonderglow Face Primer, as well as a 111 Skin Brightening Mask.
And, a By Terry Lip Balm (full size). The contents are a mix of sample size and full sizes from brands that are representative of the SpaceNK store shelves – Fresh has just joined Space so you’ll find something from them, as well as Drunk Elephant, Lipstick Queen, Laura Mercier and Jo Loves, amongst many others. It’s a luxury buy at £195 but the contents have a value of £550. I think advents are where we all stock up on travel size products that see us through the carry-on restrictions for the entire year so in that sense, maybe it doesn’t seem quite such a spend. You can find it HERE. The picture of contents is coming up now so don’t go further if you don’t want to see!
