  1. This looks amazing! So many products *drools* shame about the price, although I guess you get your money's worth!

  2. So much fun - I can't wait to get the Ciaté calendar :o). Xx

  3. Eh I have over half of these mini products anyways so I'm not too excited :(

  4. I love beauty advent calenders, but had hoped the sizes might be a tiny bit bigger given the price. A really good selection though x

  5. I'm so excited about getting a beauty advent calender this year but the sizes of these are a bit stingy given the price, and any Benefit fan has most of them anyway :( Great that it includes almost all of their bestsellers though!

  6. Why so many lip glosses? I'd consider getting one without them, I think. Xx

  7. Wow £50.00!! For a load of tiny samples... 3 tints & lot's of lip gloss not fond of either... Such a same :(

  8. Bad Gal and no They're Real? I'm absolutely shocked. But I probably won't get it because... well, eh. The list leaves me underwhelmed, esp. with the sizes.

  9. I just dont think its worth £50 for the samples... i liked the look of the ciate minis last year in selfridges it then went on sale boxing day for £20 just shows really its not worth it.... although its better than chocolate chunks :)


  10. I want this sooo much
    I really really wish I had the £50 to spare!

  11. I think £50 is a bit much for the size of samples they're giving out. I do love Benefit, but that seems a bit unfair. I also have all the products mentioned (apart from the necklace, bracelet and clip obviously) so it would be a bit of a waste for me! Love the idea though xx

    D Is For...

  12. i would much prefer this countdown to a chocolate one but i'm not sure i can justify the price! xx

  13. I would reallly really like this!! - hint hint mother dear! but the price whoa mary! at least I have a while to put a bit aside for it right?! therefore I could justify?! xxx

  14. It looks great but definitely not worth the £50 because I know there would be a lot of products in there that I wouldn't really use.

  15. Price is a bit steep but looks really nice! I've got most of the products already so I wouldn't buy it for myself, but it'd make a nice gift! However, who buys someone an advent calendar for christmas..!? I'd have to give it to them a month before!! Pointless really..!

  16. I should eventually somehow get all of these samples for free from Sephora, so I'm not going to bother with this for the price they charge.

  17. Looks great but a bit expensive for all sample sizes!

  18. This looks amazing, not sure I am willing to pay £50 for only samples though xox


  19. Fun and innovative idea, a bit expensive considering it contains samples but I would like to have this advent calender so I hope it will be avaiable here in Italy

  20. How Fun! a little too expensive for just samples but every fun idea!

  21. Oh damage, because I want that, but in one day, It's very difficult to have just one with this anticipation from the customers. But I heard say what he was another beauty calender from Selfridges if I'm not mistaken...

  23. Thanks for sharing this... I had no idea Benefit Cosmetics were doing these WOW xx
    Clare Elise -

  24. I love benefit and the idea of this but fifty pounds, ouch.

  25. hell yeah!

  26. I am so excited! Christmas AND Benefit all rolled into one!! This is the one time I would make an exception to not having a chocolate advent calendar. £50 sounds really pricey, but a little goes a long way with benefit so each little treasure should last a substantial amount of time I bet. Am severely tempted to treat myself to one!xx

  27. OMG this sounds amazing!! I always keep an eye out of cool advent calendars! £50 might be pushing my limits on price but what a great way to try a range of their products! Will defo be keeping this in mind and see have much money I have the day it comes out :P
