2016 Beauty Advent Calendars // My Picks

I feel I am a bit late on this whole beauty advent thang. I saw so many posts in October, which I now understand is because they sell out and obvs the early bird catches the worm - or shall we say lipstick? I wanted to share on the 1st so it was a month countdown but technology failing and life got in the way. Despite this, I thought I would round up my favourite 2016 Christmas Beauty Advent Calendars, which are,  mostly, all still available. Sadly my favourite, the Look Fantastic Beauty Secret Volume 2*, has now sold out, but I wanted to feature it as it's the first beauty advent calendar I have ever had and this makes me very EXCITED and I mean, VERRRRRRRY. I have tried to avoid spoilers but a few slipped through the net. If you were lucky enough to get your hands on it, it really is an amazing deal. Worth over £300, this is was priced at £70. I also wanted to include the Selfridges 2016 Advent Calendar because it looooooks incredible, but I couldn't tell if it's just not available yet or it has sold out. Rumour has it, it will be available from early November? Any time now then really.
