We won’t spoil it for you by revealing what’s behind each door, but here are some of our calendar highlights…
We all look better with a little mood lighting – thankfully, Hourglass have captured the effects of the most flattering light forms (from morning light to candlelight) in this beautifully buttery, ultra-flattering illuminating powder. Capturing, diffusing and softening harsh light and concealing imperfections, this is a game-changer in the glowing stakes, delivering multi-dimensional, soft-focus luminosity.
The bestseller that started it all – the Bobbi Brown iconic creamy, semi-matte lipstick was the first formula to launch (and sold out instantly). The secret to its success? Comfortable, full-coverage colour instantly gives lips a polished look. This deluxe mini in universally flattering shade Sandwash Pink is the perfect addition to any handbag.
The ultimate authority in blush, NARS offers the industry’s most iconic shades for cheeks. Natural, healthy-looking colour that immediately enlivens the complexion. A light application of even the highest-intensity hues delivers a natural-looking flush.
Gimme brow+ tinted eyebrow gel contains tiny microfibers that adhere to skin and hairs, creating natural-looking fullness and definition. The custom tiny, tapered brush provides easy, mess-proof application. Poof…fuller-looking brows magically appear!
This black musk and patchouli steeped fragrance is inspired by the incense-heavy scents of the era. The rich ingredients of frankincense, myrrh, oakmoss and patchouli oils based at the heart of the scent are supported by the longevity of musk, sandalwood and vetiver adding a luxurious intensity.
A mascara so amazing, it’s Better Than Sex! This formula thickens, lengthens, and curls after just one coat for the most luscious, dramatic, and volumised lashes possible.
This cult favourite is a luxurious all-over body cream that absorbs quickly to help visibly tighten the appearance of skin. Infused with all-powerful caffeine-rich guaraná extract and a cocktail of cupuaçu butter, açaí oil, and coconut oil, you’ll welcome your most radiant skin ever.
This weightless, fast-absorbing gel-serum is power-packed with collagen amino acids plus a proprietary vitamin C and energy complex. Fuel cells for increased collagen production and accelerated repair to improve imperfections like dullness, dark spots, rough texture, and expression lines. Turn dull to bright, slack to tight, wrong to right!
A virtually translucent emulsion – what we call a ‘clear emulsion’ lotion, blends quickly into the skin, moisturising the cornified layer throughout and maintaining the moisture level, producing a radiant inner glow.
The slightly fanned edges of this brush mean you can softly contour your eyes – with very little effort (or expertise) needed. Which leaves you with more time to browse Beauty Pie and take advantage of your complimentary one month membership. Result.
