Unboxing The Ciaté Advent Calendar | An ABSOLUTE BARGAIN From Perfume Click*


I've watched millions of Advent Calendar unboxings this year [& I'm still very much living for all the Eltoria tea being spilled tbh.] I've wept over the beauty of some of them, gasped at some of the names getting involved in the countdown to Christmas and wept genuine tears over the prices of some of them. Sweet lord.  

But one I haven't seen like, any coverage on, is the 12 Days of Ciaté London* beauty advent calendar. And this isn't okay, huns. Firstly - because it's a thing of actual beauty,  secondly - because the products inside are frigging awesome & its beautiful design makes it a dream to unbox and finally; because it's just £28 to order from Perfume Click and is actually worth over £50 to buy elsewhere. It's also cruelty free 🙌

If you don't wanna see what's inside but do wanna order this fab beauty advent calendar [Ciaté don't just do nail polishes, yeno] then make sure you whack the links above to order yours & probs don't read any further. But if you love a good spoiler [me, I ruin everything for myself xox] then grab a brew & get ya scroll on, hun.

As the name suggests, the 12 Days of Ciaté London beauty advent calendar is, surprisingly enough, a 12 day countdown. The packaging is BEAUTIFUL and so perfectly designed; with each box boasting a cute little slogan & designs that reflect the atmosphere and sights of London

Within each numbered box lies a beautifully packaged, mini surprise from Ciaté's makeup collection - you won't find a single nail polish, brush or crappy nail file in these packages, queen. Let alone nail clippers *shudders*

I was absolutely blown away unboxing this calendar... the thought, design & execution of it - and for the price as well, fits a strong 10/10 would bang criteria & I've been using several of the products inside on a daily basis. There's some I'm actually going to purchase full-size when I'm not so much of a poverty-stricken tramp too; which is a proof in itself of how much this experience has genuinely impressed me.

So, what actually IS inside?

- 1 x 2ml Liquid Velvet Matte Lipstick - Oh Honey! 
- 1 x 1g Pretty, Fun & Fearless Eyeshadow - Dainty 
- 1 x 1g Pretty, Fun & Fearless Eyeshadow - Unconditional 
- 1 x 1g Pretty, Fun & Fearless Eyeshadow - Fierce 
- 1 x 2.2g Mini Bamboo Bronzer - Palm Island 
- 1 x 1.5g Mini Glow to Highlighter - Moondust

Espesh the highlighter & makeup melter - like, I'd purchase them full-size, full-price all day, err'day. And I don't say that lightly, being the massive cheapskate that I am.

The Ciaté Makeup Melter is 100% something I would drop everything & buy immediately if money wasn't so much of an issue. I was SO pleasantly surprised by this product. And it's nearly ran out now too, as it's what I generally turn to to help remove tough swatches off my arms when I'm taking blog pics. Sad face. It literally does exactly as it's name suggests - and it's super mega effective; even on tough, staining liquid lipsticks.

The Ciaté liquid eyeliner found in this calendar is proper bangin' and allows you to create a really precise, ballache free and indeed fierce flick; as it's name suggests. The mascara is pretty good too; with a fab shaped wand that makes it an ideal contender for everyday use. And easy to slip inside ya makeup bag; for touch-ups in the office bogs during the day.

I think the one item that's captured my heart the very most out of the whole calendar has to be the Ciaté Glow-To Highlighter pan; which can be found nestled behind door 2. Although I do wish it came in some kind of packaging rather than just raw pan for easier transportation, I can't fault it in any other way. It's beautiful, insanely pigmented and the softest, creamiest powder formula ever

I'd never tried any Ciaté makeup before this advent calendar; despite having perved on a few of their lip products for a while. The range of products it contains are mostly minis - which I know cheese some people off... but I reckon they're a fantastic introduction across to the range & a great way to decide whether investing in their full-size counterparts is going to be good value for money for you.

The products themselves are each great quality, beautifully packaged and versatile, usable shades / items that can be used on all skintones. And the calendar itself is so so stunning & flawlessly designed it makes unboxing it all a dream. Putting the magic & surprise back into Christmas. I can't fault this calendar at all - I only wish there was more people singing its praises out there, as it deserves so much more lovin' than I've seen for it so far!
