Beauty Advent Calendars-Days 4-8

It’s hard to believe it’s already day 8! Here’s a look at what I got in my advent calendars this week.

Tanya Burr 12 Sweet Days Beauty Calendar

Day 4

On day four, I got a nail polish in the shade Glitter Rain. This is a beautiful silver glitter, but the exact same nail polish was in Tanya’s calendar last year. 

Whilst I am happy to have a new bottle of this, I feel like they could have mixed it up a bit and included a different glittery nail polish.

Day 5

The next gift I got in the Tanya calendar, is this lip gloss in the shade Pink Fondant. 

It’s the sort of everyday, dusky pink that I love, so I’m very happy with this.

Day 6

On day six, I got a glitter liner in silver. I’m obsessed with all things glittery and sparkly at the moment, so this is a welcome addition to my makeup collection.

Day 7

Yesterday, I got this eye glitter in the shade Let It Snow. 

I’m pleased to have another pot of this eye glitter, as it applies beautifully and is long wearing. However, this shade is the same as I got last year from this calendar, it’s just been renamed. I can forgive them for this though, as I really love the colour of this glitter.

Day 8

And today I got this mirror. It’s not quite as exciting as getting makeup or nail polishes, but it’s still handy to pop in my bag.

Day 4

On day four, I got this First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream.

I’ve heard really great things about this cream, as it’s super hydrating, gentle enough to be used on the face as well as the body and is suitable for those with eczema, psoriasis and other skin conditions.

Day 5

The next product I got is the Balance Me Flash Cleanse Micellar Water. I received a Balance Me eye cream from this calendar last year and it was very gentle and pretty effective, so I’m hoping this Micellar Water will be as impressive.

Day 6

On day six I got the This Works In Transit Camera Close-Up, which is a mask, moisturiser and primer in one.

This is a popular product, but one that hasn’t interested me so far. I already have a tube of this in my collection from a beauty box, so I’ll be giving this one away and I might finally give the tube I have a try.

Day 7

Yesterday I got this James Read H2O Illuminating Tan Mist. I have mixed feelings on this as I don’t use fake tan, but this is a much more gradual product that you can apply and build up slowly.

There’s also 24K gold dust in this tan, which looks pretty but is probably a bit too sparkly for everyday use.

Day 7

And behind door number eight, I got this Redken No Blow Dry Airy Cream For Fine Hair. This hair cream is meant to speed up drying time, reduce frizz and add volume to hair. 

I’d be more excited about this if it wasn’t for fine and thin hair. I’m undecided on whether to give this a try or to give it away.

Let me know what your favourite calendar products are from Days 4-8.

  1. The lip gloss in Pink Fondant is so pretty. 🙂 And that glitter liner would make such a pretty festive look!
    I’ve been curious about that brand This Works – have you tried anything from them before? I’d be interested to hear how that In Transit Camera Close-Up product works…

    1. It is! It’s my ideal everyday lip colour😊 I’m gonna try the glitter tomorrow. I don’t think I have. I see their products around all the time though. I feel like now I have two tubes of the In Transit Camera Close-Up, I have to finally try it soon. I’ll let you know how I find it xx


  2. I know! December is flying by and not going to lie definitely starting to worry about getting everything done! Time really is flying!

    1. It’s scary how fast it’s going! I had a mild panic after getting back from Lapland and thinking how much I have to do🙈 What Micellar is your fave? I like the Elemis one the most out of the ones I’ve tried xx

  3. All the glittery products from Tanya’s calendar look so pretty! A silver, glitter polish is an essential all year round for me. I imagine the glitter eyeliner would be easier to work with than black as it wouldn’t be as easy to notice if you messed up. How do you apply the eye glitter? The gloss is gorgeous too x

    1. Tanya’s calendar does always have the prettiest products😊 I love a glitter polish too. I do like a glitter eyeliner, I even just apply a bit to the inner corners of my eyes to brighten them up☺ The lip gloss is the sort of shade I reach for most days, so I’m happy with it☺ I use a glitter glue on my eyelids, it’s a bit tacky so then the glitter sticks. I use a tiny eyeshadow brush to pat the glitter on to the glue and then it lasts all day. You can’t feel the glue either☺ x

    1. Yeah I’m quite fussy with primers, a lot of them break me out. I guess that’s why I’ve held off trying it. I’ll give it a chance see how I get on. It is really pretty😊 x
