Best beauty advent calendars 2020: How and where to buy 2020 beauty and makeup advent calendar gifts

22nd September 2020 | Author: Victoria Woollaston-Webber

The beauty advent calendar trend has exploded in recent years and they’re a fantastic way for any beauty lover to get full-size products from beauty brands like Estée Lauder, Charlotte Tilbury and MAC at discounted or sale prices.

In fact, most major beauty brands now sell limited-edition advent calendars – including the likes of third-party retailers Cult Beauty, Glossybox, LookFantastic and Boots – in 12-day, 24-day or 25-day versions. They don’t just stock makeup, either. These beauty advent calendars are full of body oils, skincare, hair products and tools.

It already sells monthly subscripton boxes, as well as limited-edition and mystery one-off boxes, and now for the first year, it’s getting in on the beauty advent calendar trend.

Roccabox hasn’t revealed exactly what’s inside its calendar yet, other than the fact it will include products from Murad, Sunday Riley, Eyeko, Grace & Stella and Nails Inc. If bought separately, the 25 items in this calendar would set you back more than £350. This is largely because a staggering 22 of the products are full sized!

Waitlist | £150 | Join waitlist

Coming in at £150, the Charlotte Tilbury advent calendar 2020 is one of the most expensive in this list but we’re expecting big things. Last year’s calendar was brilliant – in fact you can still buy it – and the 2020 version is set to contain some of the iconic brand’s latest products.

PRE-ORDER ♥ Lookfantastic advent calendar 2020

12 October | £85 | Pre-order now from Lookfantastic 

Announced a little after its main rivals, the Lookfantastic beauty advent calendar is now open for pre-orders. Rather than signing up to a waitlist to be informed when the calendar will go on sale, you can reserve one – meaning you shouldn’t be left disappointed when it goes on general sale on 12 October.

This is also likely so Lookfantastic can best manage demand, and we’re here for it! The problem is, Lookfantastic isn’t even hinting at what products are going to be inside so it is a bit of a gamble.

All the site is saying is: “With 25 incredible products inside – from skincare to haircare, bodycare to cosmetics – it’s the countdown to Christmas you’ve all been waiting for! Our Advent Calendar has sold out 5 years in a row, so be sure to pre-order now so that you don’t miss out!”

It’s also worth an impressive £460.

The advent calendar itself will go on sale for £70 for Lookfantastic beauty box subscribers, who will also be given an early access email where you can get the discount.

It will be then be on sale to non-subscribers for £85.

Last year’s Lookfantastic calendar was full of fantastic brands including Morphe, Illamasqua, Elemis, Luxie, Rodial, Prai and more so we’re expecting big things from the 2020 version.

If you’re not already a subscriber, head over to the site now and when you sign up, add the code ADVENTNEWSUBS at checkout to get your calendar for £70!

WAITLIST ♥ Cult Beauty advent calendar 2020

12 October | £199 | Sign up at Cult Beauty 


The Cult Beauty Advent Calendar 2020 waitlist opened almost as soon as the Festive season was over and, considering the brand’s first advent calendar in 2019 sold out in under two hours, there’s a chance this year’s version will be even more in-demand.

Up til now, many of us had signed up to the waitlist without having any idea what to expect but, ahead of the calendar going on sale on 12 October, Cult Beauty has revealed its first glimpse at what’s inside.

From a photo shared by the retailer, we can see that the 2020 calendar includes a Huda Beauty eyeshadow palette, hair serum from Living Proof, Verso eye cream, a Charlotte Tilbury lipstick plus much more.

You can see the full list of what’s inside the Cult Beauty Advent Calendar 2020 in our article on the calendar itself.
