  1. This must be sold out – the link takes me to a “not found” page on their website. That’s too bad! I wonder if it’ll be sold through Ulta or Target.

  2. Got one, couldn’t resist the price for 24 items, hope they are nice.

  3. I’m thinking about getting this, but I’ve never tried their products. It’s weird how cheap the products are. Are the products bad?

    • They sell their products at Ulta and target too…I’m not real familiar with them but did order this. There are reviews on their products on targets website and a lot of them are positive.

      • Thanks! I went ahead and caved, just ordered one 🙂

    • I’ve also only seen positive reviews of this brand. If I was more into makeup, I would buy this too.

  4. It’s out of stock already as of 10:50 am PT. =(

    • Shows available right now

  5. A cruelty-free advent calendar!

    • I know! And from an affordable brand you can get at the drugstore! Really like their gel eyeliner pencils and eye shadows. They get good ratings on the Ulta site.

    • Now if only somebody would do a cruelty-free (or natural/vegan/etc.) skincare themed (or even a general beauty themed) advent calendar. 🙂

    • Oh wait… isn’t Dr. Hauschka supposed to be natural? If so, then I guess somebody already did one, and I got it! 🙂

      • I am so jealous of your Dr. Haushka score! Please let us know how it is. I’ve never tried anything from that brand, but I had a friend who swore by their products.

  6. Theres spoilers. 1 eyeshadow pallet, black and white khol pensils, black eyeliner pen, sharpener,eyeshadow applicators, white compact powder, lip balm, 2 glosses, blush stick, 2 makeup brushes, 2 hair ties, nail files, 2 sets of nail stickers, 1 french tip guide, 4 polishes…and some gift tags i think.
    Lots of pink stuff, all in holiday packaging.

  7. At first I got excited, but then I went to their website and looked around it. For $30, I can buy a whole bunch of their makeup tailored to my color preferences.

    • Ya i agree, i dont think the value is really there to buy it for yourself since so many of their items are already pretty inexpensive. But i do think this would make an awesome gift for a young teenage girl! The packaging and excitement of opening it would make a great gift!

  8. I wonder what kind of items are in it? $30 for 24 full size items is a great price. But their mystery boxes didn’t go well.

    • I’m curious about these mystery boxes…were they reviewed on MSA?

    • Are you mixing it up with the Essence Beauty boxes (difference company)?

      • Ohhhh lol yes I was!! I read Essence and assumed it was the beauty box.
