Although it's only September, it's already that time of the year again when we are (un)officially allowed to get excited about the festive season. And for beauty fans, with that inevitably comes the influx of beauty advent calendars. This year, there are so many options that making a choice can feel downright impossible (first world problems, I know). To help you out, I edited the huge amount on offer down to a manageable nine best 2019 advent calendars in the UK, which in my opinion offer the crème de la crème of beauty.
There are some recognisable heroes in the list, including calendars from fragrance giant Diptyque, and everyone's favourite London retailer Liberty. These yearly bestsellers tend to get snapped up within days after their release dates (most of which come in October), so if you want one of these, it's important to be super on the ball.
There are also some new offerings, such as the Lush advent calendar, as well as calendars from more niche, lesser known brands like Atelier cologne. While they are still bound to be popular, you may have a little more time to play with if you're planning on purchasing one of those.
So without further adieu, check out my top nine beauty advent calendars for 2019.
Offering a little bit of everything, this fairly priced calendar features some of Bareminerals' hit skincare and beloved makeup. Getting your hands on mini makeup is a rare treat, so take this opportunity and hang on to your new tiny products until holiday time!
Worth over an incredible £600 and out 16 October, Liberty's advent calendar is one of the most beloved seasonal options, and for good reason. This year it's better than ever, featuring mini Le Labo and Sam McKnight products. Just get in there quick; it sells out every year.
