Happy December Everyone!!
Today is the day I can finally start my 24 day countdown to Christmas with the help of benefit that is anyway! I reserved this calendar back in September and picked it up at the start of November and this past month has felt like the longest month ever!! I was going to do a post a day but with work getting in the way so I’ve decided I’m going to dedicate one blog post to four days worth of opening my benefit calendar, so I will be posting everyday but I will just be updating the same post for four days and then the next for four days and so on… does that make sense?
DAY ONE: This was definitely the most exciting day as it is the first day! Literally could not wait to get home as I have been at the boyfriend’s in Bristol this weekend and I knew we were going to be busy this weekend so I decided to leave my calendar at home. It was a hard thing to do but it made me that little bit more excited to come back to Sheffield. So the excitement sort of passed when I saw what was behind door number one with it being a Benefit Advent Calendar, I suppose they save the best until last as today I got Benefit Pink and Magenta Heart-Shaped Paperclips. They are ultra cute and will help me to keep my assignment work in order so they are very handy! I’m more excited for tomorrow now!
DAY TWO: Happy 2nd December! Today I was a little more excited and I had every right to be! A friend had seen on twitter that benefit had tweeted about their calendars starting off small and ending big. Which I hope is the case but I’m pretty happy that I managed to get my hands on one of these beautiful calendars anyway! Today I got a little bit of benefit magic… I adore benefit’s cosmetics as well as their skincare so receiving an Ultra Plush Lip Gloss in A-Lister was definitely a win for me as I love my lip products! I had to have a try of this beautiful product and it has a lovely smell to it and tastes a smidge like watermelon which is a good thing. My favourite thing about this lip gloss is that it doesn’t feel sticky on the lips!
DAY THREE: I’m a little late today opening my calendar as I was working last night and after a twelve hour shift I just did not have the energy! It was a very nice treat today before door number three! You can never have too much mascara right? well now I have another miniature to carry in my hand-bag for the quick fix throughout the day! Today I got the Benefit They’re Real Mini Mascara! I love miniature versions of things they always look so cute!
DAY FOUR: Okay so I seen a spoiler on twitter this morning so I already knew this was a product I had never tried… Interesting. Although I wasn’t as excited as I thought I should have been. The photo I seen on Twitter made the product look relatively small but when I opened door number four when I got home from work this morning I realised just how small it was. This has made me pretty disappointed with the Calendar as you’d expect at least deluxe size samples. But never the less I am still enjoying the calendar just not as much as I thought I would. Today’s little treat was the Stay Don’t Stray in Light/Medium. To show you all how small this product actually was I had to compare it to our sky remote because I’m feeling pretty lazy today after working a 13 and a half hour shift with no sleep from yesterday and the sky remote was first into my hand as I’ve sobbed tragically at grey’s anatomy this morning.
